What to Wear: Summer 2012
We are getting close to the beginning of summer, which means lots of sunshine, lazy days and, of course, weddings, graduations, and other parties. As this season rolls around, there’s always something new to celebrate! Now is the perfect time to update your wardrobe for any warm-weather event. This summer, be the best-dressed (and most eco-friendly) guest at the party with fun patterns and lightweight, easy-to-wear fabrics.
Summer 2012 is going to be all about comfortable designs and fabrics, with pretty and unique details (check out these Vogue UK outfit ideas for inspiration!). Look for florals, bright colors, and fun attention-grabbing accessories. This season is full of gatherings of friends and family, so why not make your outfits reflect the sunny days ahead? So grab their attention, stay cool, and remain committed to environmentally friendly practices, sustainability, and organic fabrics. Here at Jute & Jackfruit, being eco-friendly never means you have to sacrifice your style!
This season is all about fun colors and eye-catching designs, which makes this dress by Feral Childe perfect for a summertime fete. This silk Meadow Dress is decorated with a beautiful hand screen printed design and is perfect over a tank or slip. Lightweight silk is airy and comfortable, perfect for summer days! This Feral Childe dress would go wonderfully with the Bamboo Cattall Pendant. The pendant, created by Molly M., is laser carved, and made from sustainably harvested bamboo. With its beautiful detail and fun design, it is just the right accessory for the season (not to mention it goes with just about everything)!
For a more structured look, look to Kelly Lane. Kelly Lane’s Rainbow Dress dresses up beautifully with a jacket or cardigan, but also stands out on its own! The woven sandstone colored fabric provides an understated and classic look, but the details (colorful collar and tie-back) make it fun. Kelly Lane is all about color and detail while remaining committed to sustainability and socially conscious practices. Her designs make even classic styles and structured pieces unique and striking! For even more color and funkiness, look no further than Kelly Lane’s Merry Go Round Dress. This one-of-a-kind piece stands out from the crowd, and can be dressed up or dressed down and will even transition well into fall. It is perfect for cocktail parties, as well as more casual gatherings. The geometric design is fresh and contemporary, and the colors are vibrant. Perfect for summer parties!
Enjoy the celebrations of the season and the lazy days of summer knowing that you can be fashion-forward AND eco-conscious!
