Hello, patio! Welcome back, sunshine! With temperatures finally edging upwards, I’m feeling jazzed to freshen up my wardrobe for warmer days ahead.
It’s high time to assemble a must-have list of what’s hot and trending, from tops to dresses and accessories in this season’s vibrant florals, with big splashes of blue, fuchsia and orange, plus chic black and white. Does the thought of lightweight fabrics, dazzling colors and…wait for it: styles that actually bare a little skin make you sigh with unbridled pleasure after a drawn-out winter? I believe I heard a resounding “Yes!” to that one. In that case, let’s stash our parkas in storage and get styled with these fashion must-haves for Spring-Summer ’14!
Top Me Up
The first wardrobe must-have for Spring and Summer is the quintessential sleeveless top that you can dress up or down, for everything from special soirees to casual patio partying. With the dazzling blue, tie dye tones of this gorgeous top by Dolcezza I’ll feel infused with summery ocean and sky, plus a touch of the Caribbean, wherever I go. With one lapel that’s crochet, this beautiful top is both boho and feminine. It pairs up perfectly with everything from sleek white pants to sexy skirts. Check out the rest of the stunning Blue Wave Collection by Dolcezza.
Another spring-summer staple that’s fun and flattering is a fashion-forward tunic. Versatile enough to take you from the office to the outdoors, the chic Madison Crossover Tunic Top by Arianne Lingerie features an abstract black and white print that’s en vogue right now all over runways and the red carpet. I love how the sophisticated crossover bodice flatters any shape. Team this tunic up with soft, slim leggings like the Lilianne Capris by Arianne Lingerie for the most on-trend look.

Coco Chanel once said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” Oh Coco, we couldn’t agree more. An ideal taste of summertime class and fabulousness is guaranteed with the Dazzling Sleeveless Floral Dress by Simon Chang. With a black bodice, double straps and a vibrant floral-like skirt this dress is both sexy and elegant, for everything from weddings to casual outdoor jaunts.

Satchels and Purses and Bags…Oh Joy!
Here we have the crème de la crème accessory for this season’s color-happy wardrobe: the best bag or purse ever in one of the season’s hottest hues.

Fuchsia is one of the most stunning swatches for spring-summer ’14, and the irresistible Zenith Mini Quilted Leather Purse by Christopher Kon adds a pop of this juicy colour in a classy little package. Crafted from cowhide leather, this purse features front flap over closure, top zipper closure, a leather and metallic purse strap, and stunning gold hardware. It’s one of many lovely leathers from the Zenith Collection By Christopher Kon.
Our body-conscious styles and lighter fabrics for warmer temperatures call for well-fitted, contoured bras.

Best of all this amazing bra comes in a rainbow of colours, including a sizzling Wild Orchid.
