Floaty fabrics, florals, and crisp white cotton have emerged as the ultimate street style muse when crafting a show-stopping midsummer ensemble this year
For those seeking to make a sartorial statement during the midsummer festivities, it's easy to gather pointers from the flowing silhouettes, ethereal pastels, and painterly floral prints donned by our favourite fashion week taste makers.
Take our local mavens, for example, who made a point of pointelle lace and floor-length crochet to beat the heat. Billowing maxi dresses were another classic cut found on the streets of Pairs and Milan, the puff-pastry reminiscent frills and billowing skirts rendered in cheery pinks and soft florals. Structured silhouettes were a more surprising source of inspiration from street stylers, who romanticised two-piece sets and padded coats with dainty wild buds. At the same time, sheer renditions with floral appliqués rendered the traditional midsummer signatures in more sultry iterations.
Whether you opt for a bohemian-inspired ensemble adorned with flowing lace or a structured look elevated by ethereal accessories, these street-style looks beckon us to explore new sartorial avenues when getting dressed for midsummer – be it for frog-leaping fun or picking seven flowers from seven fields.
