Love a breezy outfit for summer, especially in white, which looks gorgeous against a sun kissed complexion. Found this white cropped tee with an open back and flowing fabric while browsing in H&M a few months ago in London and it was love at first sight. Lightweight and flouncy in crisp white, it can be easily styled on top of skin-tight jeans, shorts or even a tube skirt. I’ve kept the look monochrome with ecru coloured embellished shorts, black sandals and my tan Céline; my tortoiseshell sunglasses pull the look together, combining all the colours in my outfit. As always, jewellery has been kept to a minimum with just my fine bracelet, rings and necklace – which I rarely take off.
This look is ideal for a summery day out for lunch or coffee with friends. This flowy top can be combined in so many different ways, it’s cute and girly and the open back allows for some funky bikinis to peek out of. Wear it in the evening with dark cropped skinnies and strappy heeled sandals or go for an all-white look in white distressed shorts and man-dals in white leather, for an uber-cool, minimalist Alexander Wang feel. I can’t wait to style it with crochet shorts, some gladiator sandals and a white fedora for the ultimate boho chic.
Wearing: Top, H&M. Shorts, Zara. Sunglasses, Karen Walker. Bag, Céline.
I’ve been spending a lot of time by the pool and at the beach, always in the sun, spending time with family and catching up with close friends. I’m off to my summer house tomorrow in the South of Greece – it is my paradise there; there is a certain tranquility that I feel nowhere else in the world. The blue waters, the grey and white pebbles on the beach and gigantesque rocks by the marina; every landscape, every little road and secret corner, everywhere I look, I find it breathtaking. Will be posting lots of photos on Instagram so follow me @pinkmanolos to discover my secret paradise.
Hope you are all enjoying the sun, wherever you are, and hope I have inspired you to wear white, the best summer colour, flowing in silk or lace or cool linen – it’s divine against golden skin!
