From Weddings to Festivals, Your Summer Wardrobe Sorted
We navigate the season's sartorial minefields so you don't have to. And the best bit? Everything’s on sale.
Wedding attire can be a minefield: tradition dictates a look that is appropriate for a daytime ceremony, but formal enough for an evening celebration. We should avoid black and white, as well as whatever color the bridesmaids are wearing — and don't get us started on the risk of another guest wearing the same dress. To avoid the latter faux pas, your best bet is vintage, then take your look into the present with Chloe Gosselin's teal satin Helix heels and wait for the compliments to roll in.
You've got a cocktail in your hand and the city at your feet, which just happen to be clad in Chloe Gosselin's Vanille mules, an understated modern classic. Complete the look with J.W. Anderson's hammered Bird earrings and a tailored jumpsuit, like this tuxedo-inspired number by Stella McCartney.
Summer in the City
Whether you’re headed to the office in NYC or sightseeing in Florence, dressing for the sweltering heat of a city in summer can be challenging. Keep your cool in an ultra-light midi shirt dress like this one by Aula, and team with a low block heel like Chloe Gosselin's Olea mule: the almond toe and ruched strap makes it as elegant as it is comfortable. We love it in yellow linen, which looks sensational on tanned feet.
From the UK's Wilderness to Nevada's Burning Man, festivals are as much about the fashion as the music. The golden rule is to keep your shoes flat, because there’s always a lot of walking between venues, and nothing saps fun like aching feet. We love Chloe Gosselin's denim Lilas flat, with black velveteen ribbons that wrap ballerina style around the ankle. Wear them with a check mini dress to breeze seamlessly into the VIP area, or a tutu skirt for a Carrie Bradshaw-inspired costume.
A pool party is probably the only environment in which the combination of swimwear and heels is perfectly acceptable. We love the cut-out details of Moeva's Marion swimsuit. Wear it with Cult Gaia's oversized Geneva hoops and Chloe Gosselin's emerald green Sienna mule, which is easily slipped off when you want to dive in.
