Berries and black silk

As we ease into a full-on tropical summer, and everyone starts to pull out light cotton clothing in creamsicle colours, there’s something deliciously dramatic about going all the way the other way.

Think ethereal, not Wednesday Addams, and sidestep any Goth references by softening the look with easy hair and cool flats. We love the scene-stealing effect of a dark, Bordeaux-stained lip, particularly when paired with slippery silk in inky black. After all, style isn’t seasonal, and we love the drama of it all, particularly in the unlikely midst of high, summer temperatures.
