Alert: Summer Trend : Jewel Tone dress and Statement Sleeves!
Hello! Are you aware of this summer trend? With all of the focus on bleached blues and white whites, don’t forget to add vivid and saturated colors to your summer wardrobe. Think emerald-green, bold coral, cobalt blue, and deep purple. Below I wear a silk dress that incorporates the sleeve detail of the summer, and a rich jewel tone.
Certainly I had fun with this dress. I received admiring comments from passersby too. You will notice that I matched my nail color and sunnies, for a full on purple vibe!
I love long sleeves in summer as the AC gets very cold in most restaurants and shopping venues. Also, as I am spending half of my time near the beach and it is much cooler there. The open neckline keeps me cool, and the long statement sleeves keep me warm. This combination is just right!
TIP: When I wear this dress out, I put rubber bands at the sleeve, near the elbow, and poof the fabric over so they are invisible. That saves me the expensive of altering this dress and makes it so that my daughter or friends can barrow it, too !
The summer flowers are out and I love to be synchronized with their vibrance. The jewel tone dress is everywhere! Did you happen to see the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle wearing her jewel tone dress in rich canary diamond yellow? Fabulous!
Restaurants that I dined in this week were festooned with flowers. This week is quiet in New York!
I wore the dress with silver caged sandals by Enzo Angiolini . A metallic sandal seemed in keeping with this bright dress and is somewhat of a neutral. Below the accessories I wore. You might remember this Badgley Mischka bag.
