There is nothing better than summer light; how it dapples on the streets and grass on those hot evenings, warm and golden and breathtakingly brilliant. When deep summer casts it’s glow on the city, I love to amp up my gold accessories and let the metallic tones do all the talking. In order to let these accessories shine like gold I keep my outfit simple but, as always, slightly unexpected. A crisp clean white shirt is always the right choice: it pops off of tan skin and reflects light onto any gold accessories with ease and elegance. And that of course is classic summer chic: easy breezy elegance. To jazz up the white and gold pairing I LOVE my collection of “chic city shorts.”I look for low slung pieces that provide texture: silk, leather, and lace all work well this season, and will add depth and intrigue to an expected look. Big blonde beach waves, or soft Goldie-locks curls juxtapose the masculine lines of the ensemble and also keep this look feeling feminine and sexy. Add a killer pair of shades to pump up the volume, and gladiator sandals for a glamorous glow et voila!
