Look of the Month – July 2012
Bold and colorful is the best way to describe our favorite look for the month of July. With summer in full swing, July is a great time to put away the drab grays and browns of your wardrobe and break out the bright and bold colors you can only wear during summer. Keeping your look simple with classic cuts and feminine shapes is the perfect choice for July’s best looks.
Dresses are the right choice for July, as suits can seem too stuffy and formal for the summer months. Our favorite look is a simple wrap dress that is feminine and flattering but still very professional for the office, and which transitions easily from daytime to night. If you have a special dinner date after work, a wrap dress is always the perfect choice. Combine it with a jacket for the office and wear it on its own at night, and you’re ready for that dinner under the stars.
Bright and bold is always a good choice for summer months, after the doldrums of winter are finally over. Orange, yellow, and hot pink are perfect choices for your summer wardrobe, and perfect for adding that pop of personality to an otherwise simple cut of your dress. Pink and orange typically work well on any woman as they give you a hint of color, and yellow is perfect for when you’re starting to get your summer tan and to see those sun streaks in your hair. Resist the urge to wear black, grey and brown during the summer as this is the time to really have fun with your wardrobe items, and bold color is always a fun choice.
For maxi and floor-length dresses, a full cut will keep you comfortable and breezy and also add some femininity to your look. For shorter dresses, a clingier cut is perfectly flattering and creates a slim silhouette. This too is a good choice for summer months as a softly clinging wrap dress provides the coverage you need for daytime but still shows off those great curves you’ve worked hard on all winter!
Bold colors with a simple design is a classic choice for any month of the year, but works especially well for summer. It’s our favorite look for the warmer months and a soft jersey fabric makes it comfortable and flattering for any time of the year. When summer is in bloom, break out the bold colors and opt for simple cuts for maximum comfort and style. This look works for any woman and is sure to be your favorite for July as well.
