Summer colours

Not only is it elegant and classy, but these lighter colours help reflect the sun and keep you cool, which means you’ll be looking good without breaking a sweat.

Footwear

Imagine wearing leather boots when it’s 35 degrees outside…No thanks. When it’s hot and stuffy, especially in tropical climates, it’s all about making sure you get enough ventilation. So, leave your trainers at home and get some fabulous sandals. Not only are they subtle, cute, and multi-purpose, but they keep your feet nice and cool. Plus, they look great with maxi dresses, shorts, or even light summer trousers. These gorgeous summer sandals, with a fun and playful floral pattern, are perfect for a day out at the beach or a casual evening in. Say goodbye to sweaty feet – these sandals are lightweight, fashionable, and ideal for adding variation to you outfits. And they hardly take up any space in a suitcase. Perfect for a holiday, if you ask me.

Accessories

Sunglasses are lifesavers when it comes to hot climates that receive plenty of sun Not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, but they also tie a look together. For instance, try combining a white top and comfortable Robell trousers with a cute pair of Powder sunglasses. A simple, but playful and elegant statement full of subtle details. Sunglasses even serve a purpose when you’re inside, as you can use them to keep your hair out of your face (and out of mind).

If you know you are going to be in direct sunlight for most of the day, then consider investing in a wide-brimmed hat. They are lightweight, breathable and great for keeping the sun off your face and shoulders. Perfect to dress up your outfits in summer and always guaranteed to keep you looking and feeling cooler in the hot weather. Plus, they just add that classy factor when combined with a fancy evening dress or a summer skirt!

6 Winter Fashion Tips from Colmers Hill Fashion

Practical Winter Fashion Tips For Women

As a woman, does the onset of winter send shivers up you not just because of the cold but because it makes you feel unsure style-wise? During the summer, it’s never too hard to find a pretty floral top and cropped trousers in your wardrobe as you head out for a movie with your friends. With temperatures suddenly falling, winter demands very warm clothes, but in the rush of keeping yourself warm, you will start running low on fashionable looking outfits.

However, this should not make you resigned to wearing unstylish clothes just for the sake of keeping warm. Winter demands creativity as far as dressing up is concerned. You will need to stay warm and at the same time look stylish. Here are some great winter fashion tips from Colmers Hill Fashion.

Choose your fabrics for warmth

Wearing clothes that will keep you warm and toasty depends on what fabrics and knitwear you choose. If you’re looking for a jumper, ones that have cashmere, mohair or lambs wool will obviously keep you warmer. But they don’t have to cost a fortune! Colmers Hill has large range of cashmere/wool mix jumpers from Luella which cost from £59 in a variety of colours and styles.

Belt up your coat

A warm coat is a must-have in your wardrobe. Imagine how boring it can get wearing the same coat day in day out just because it is warm. Great fashion lies in variety and getting several stylish coats to get you through the winter will be a great idea. Consider belting some of your coats because you can achieve a whole new look. You can also play around with the colors; just because it is a cold and grey winter doesn’t mean your clothes don’t have to look the same. See Colmers Hill Fashion’s Coats.

Embrace the idea of layering

It’s no lie that winter can really get cold and often times that fancy coat and scarf won’t cut it. When the cold outside is really biting hard, piling up layers could be your way out. For instance, a long-sleeved blouse under a sweater and a coat will keep your body warm. You can also rock a pair of tights under a pair of jeans or a long pair of socks, forming a layer that will keep your legs warm as you go about your daily activities. Layering is normally popular when winter kicks in, since it’s a very effective way to provide your body with some much-needed warmth. Just make sure that you do your layering in style to avoid looking obviously overdressed.
