The heat is on and I know all you want to do is take it off! While the streets of Hong Kong are open to fashion interpretation, walking around in your skivvies is not generally accepted… so how about heading over to Club Monaco and see what easy breezy pieces they have to make your summer style sizzle?! Here’s my style advice for dealing with the long hot summer!
Keep it light!
The easiest way to cool off is to wear lighter colours and fabrics. You say that plain white can get a bit boring? Well, that is why Club Monaco’s colourless creations are done in a range of textures and embroideries. Goodbye plain, hello pizzazz! The shorts, dresses, tunics, and tie-front tops will keep you floating through summer without breaking a sweat.
Club Monaco has made things even easier for you by putting all their summery white numbers in a cool ‘beach boutique’ section in store – that puts us right in the mood to go on that island getaway stat!
Chillax baby! It’s summertime! There’s no need to wear those fitted black shift dresses and skinny jeans until later in the year, so now is the time to embrace the LFD – the little floaty dress! Club Monaco has an extensive range of dresses long and short to fit all sizes and shapes. No matter what you want to show off or cover up, they have you sorted!
On my shopping list is this camel coloured off-the-shoulder number that shows off the always-flattering collarbone. This would look perfect belted and paired with a stack of bangles and a pair of espadrilles.
Saturate yourself… with colour!
There is no time like the present to try out a new shade! Coloured pants are everywhere nowadays and they can be more slimming than you might think! The trick is to find a pair that have proper pockets (front and back) and belt loops so you can set off your waist with a classic belt (also available at Club Monaco!). If you are worried about your hips, then find a pair that are a bit looser in the calf to balance out the proportion.
It’s not just tinted trousers that are up for grabs! You can also score some sunshine of your own with this pleated maxi skirt. There are pops of sunshine yellow and pastel green throughout the whole of Club Monaco’s summer collection; I am in love with the mint blouse – just looking at that refreshing shade makes my body temp take a dip!
Also, don’t forget to accessorize all your new finds! Club Monaco carries sunnies by Ray Ban, a collection of colourful fair trade bags, and some very cute Rachel Comey vintage-inspired heels too. They also have lots of stunning jewellery and floaty scarves to mix and match with your outfits.
If you are melting down, Club Monaco can help you keep your cool! All these summery delights will be available until August, so stop by their lovely Queen’s Road flagship store (loving that teacup window display!) and see what revitalizes you!
