How To Conquer The Heat In Style: The Wedding Guest Edit

Due to rising temperatures, mid-March through to early September can be a tricky period to navigate in style. However, don’t fret, as we’re here to help with our edit of standout looks to beat the heat.

GRAPHIC ATTRACTION

Peel back layers and instead opt for free flowing garments in lightweight materials – linen, cotton and silk are ideal. Notice how this style star adds oodles of personality to her look by matching quirky accessories to her pop-bright dress. Super smart.

Get The Look

Asymmetric striped satin maxi dress, Malene Birger, €440 at Net-A-Porter. Silver metal sunglasses, €190 at Bimba Y Lola. Pebbled tote, €35.95 at Mango

MODERN GLAMOUR

Sequins in spring feel somewhat daring. Play down the drama with a loose fitting shirt. Up the cool factor with a pair of mirrored shades.

Get The Look

Sequined stretch-mesh skirt, Malene Birger, €397 at Net-A-Porter. Tropical print shirt, €42 at Topshop. Leather mules, €99 at Uterque.

DECONSTRUCTED SHIRTING

From London and Paris to New York and Milan, deconstructed shirting went global this season. Wear yours with drop-down earrings and pull back hair to greater emphasise the d?colletage. Cropped trousers leave ankle ample appeal for a statement shoe.

Get The Look

Striped off-shoulder blouse, €35.95 at Mango.?Sphere rose-gold plated drop earrings, J.W.Anderson?350 at Matches Fashion. Aviator flash lenses, €159 at Ray Ban.

PARED BACK NEUTRALS

Don’t be afraid of neutrals (or baring your midriff – it’s spring after all and surely you’ve spent the last few months toning tum and bum? Right?). Add interest by mix and matching textures – this short-sleeved knit works well with tailored trousers – and punctuate the look with a candy coloured clutch.

Get The Look

High rise trousers with darts, €29.95 at Zara. Ribbed cotton and linen-blend sweater, A.P.C. Atelier De Production Et De ??145 at Net-A-Porter. Knotted metallic sandals, €125 at Uterque.
