OVER the top

Summer calls for the cutest outfits comprising the most comfy tops. The hot, humid weather demands something airy; the bright, sunny ambience asks for something fun. And a fancy top can check the boxes for both! As always, we are not here to settle for anything basic. From cut-outs to flares, we are here to amplify your style by going over the top. The blend of current trends and personal style is all you need for a top haul. Off-shoulder and cold-shoulder tops have been around for more than a season now. And to be honest, none of us can get enough of either!

Accentuating the shoulders gives a new dimension to the most basic of looks; it adds a fun spirit to the dullest of moods. They are super cute yet quite minimalistic.

Cut-outs are another great option; they usually lean more towards a sultry aura. Neck cut-outs look sophisticated, back cuts bolder and cut-outs around the waist are as sexy as it can get! Other than these, flares can be a wonderful choice for a flirty get-up. With the right dose of ‘extra,’ flares on the neck, sleeves, and waist are always on the list of our favourites. They are striking without being overwhelming. Let’s not forget the evergreen style of halter necks. This rarely ever goes out of fashion and turns up the chic-factor of an outfit in a matter of seconds.

The great thing about these fun tops is how versatile they can be. Wear them on a girls-day-out and be as carefree as you want, or dress up for a formal occasion and be the centre of attention — as long as you know how to style them right, there’s no look you cannot pull off with these tops!

As for the bottom, we all have a good pair of pants or a nice breezy skirt in our closets to complement. A cute trick to make your outfit as well as yourself stand out even more is by applying the technique of ‘highlighting.’ A dust of golden, bronzy shimmer over the shoulder and collarbones will highlight and accentuate them. A hint of bronzer on the hollows and curves will add more depth, making you look like a shimmering goddess.

For a fun, girly moment, opt for bright colours. Neons, reds, and blues are only to name a few. Prints and florals are very on-trend as well.

For a summery take, incorporate hats or headscarves and sunnies to complete the look. Colour co-ordinate with your girlfriends, get creative with the designs and take over this summer with fashionably adorable tops!
