Carefully selected staple colors can really take an outfit up a notch. This summer season my go to colors are white, nude and turquoise.
Add white to make it bright. White bottoms lighten your outfit and make you appear to have a sun kissed glow. Whether it’s shorts, trousers or jeans have your whites bright and out in the sunshine. If you are feeling daring, try an all white look – just make sure your whites are the same shades!
Nude shoes lengthen when worn with shorts, dresses or skirts. There is no choppy ending with a nude sandal and a good pair will make your legs look much longer. These wedges from Clarks are my favorite purchase of the season. They have air technology and are comfortable all day long. Try a patent nude when going for an evening look.
Something about turquoise makes me think of summer and the sea. Turquoise can mix and match with a variety of other colors. It can also act as a eye-catching contrast if you choose a turquoise accessory for a statement piece.
