Cool Summer styles to Wear as the temps rise!
Keeping cool and wearing cool summer clothes as in fashionably trendy ‘cool’ becomes harder the older you become. Comfort is key for me now I am in my fifties, but I do still want to be seen as having a little fashion flair too and I am sure it is the same for you too?
Cool Summer Trends
Therefore, I am delighted with the ‘floaty Kimono/Kaftan’ trend this summer cool and ‘cool’ in the truest sense of the word! It also means you can get away with wearing a vest top, because you can cover those arms with a loose kimono style jacket or blouse.
If you are petite you just wear a shorter version, length doesn’t matter.
The high street is full of kaftan and kimono style jackets and tops right now. Visit H&M, Zara, Topshop etc.
Bonmarché’s Kaftan top
The one I am wearing in these pics is from Bonmarché
Cool Summer Embroidered Cropped jeans
I teamed it with Bonmarché’s embroidered cropped jeans, which are very stretchy and very comfy. I normally wear a size 12 for jeans, but I almost wish I had ordered a size 10 in this style, as they are a good fit but perhaps come up slightly large for me, plus stretch denim gives a lot.
Palm Print kaftan top
I think this viscose Kaftan top is the star of the show! Black and white palm print, it goes with everything, a flattering ‘v’ neck trimmed with pretty beads. Add in a clever contrasting border and you have the perfect throw-on top in a cool summer style! Plus at the moment its on offer for only £15!
It comes in S-M or M-L I am wearing the small to medium and its perfect for my size 12-14 top size.
What did you wear at the weekend to keep cool? We were gardening so I chopped up an old pair of trackies into shorts!
I really don’t think you want to see that pic!
