Summer in the city
Updated: Jul 23, 2019
Hello my friends! Hope that you are enjoying this hot summer. Here is my proposition of 4 complete looks for long, summer days. What to wear to look stylish, yet comfortable, during these long, hot days.
1. Flowy dress and a chic straw hat
I am in love with this Diane von Furstenberg green dress, it is tight at the top and then falls loose. Little bow in the upper side adds a little bit more details to this simple-cut dress.
I paired it with straw hat from El Corte Ingles
Dress- Diane von Furstenberg
Earrings - Chanel vintage
Clutch- Ellie Saab
This look is more sophisticated and colorful. It's perfect for afternoon tea in one of the hotels close to the lake or quick shopping on Rue du Rhone.
Location: Hotel d'Angleterre and Bronzette
2. Polka dot dress
This look is ideal for spending day by the lake or at one for the beautiful Geneva terraces/ rooftops.
Traditionally polka dots are used in the clothing of flamenco dancers (and traditional Spanish dresses) and you can see that influence below in the Dolce & Gabbana’s 2015 SS collection. It's a typical doll dress and bows on the shoulders makes the look very feminine.
Dress- Dolce & Gabbana
Necklace - Chanel
Sunglasses - Prada
Handbag- stunning Kelly28 Hermès
This Boho-chic look is just perfect for a stroll in the evening or apéro by the lake. I am very much in love with the dress from Zimmerman, it has hippie influence but fabrics and details make it very chic.
Cuff and necklace - Chanel
Sunglasses - Gucci
Handbag- Louis Vuitton Metis in raspberry color
Shoes- Raph Lauren wedge sandals in brown color.
Location- Place de la Navigation
4. Chanel Chic
This is a look for days when you would like to stay indoors and enjoy the cool air-conditioned beautiful interiors.
I am wearing:
Dress - Chanel Handbag- Chanel Reissue 2.55
Cuff and earrings- Chanel
Location: Easwest Hotel Geneva
