July Challenge of the Month – Look 6

Modern Retro Vintage Look by Clothes Clothes Clothes! Challenge of the Month

With these lovely cream retro polka dot bow shorts, it would have been easy to create a cute pinup look with just a black or red top.

Cute Feminine Casual Summer Look by Clothes, Clothes, Clothes! Challenge of the Month

There is a lot going on with this pair of shorts – big pockets, turned up hems, stripes, and a big bow! – so I chose to go for simple pieces to compliment it. There was also the issue of it being described as Mint Ticking Bow Stripe Shorts on the Miss Selfridge website – surely “mint” means green, but they look pretty grey to me! So just to be on the safe side, I chose a colour palette that would flatter either colour.

I started by adding a simple white vest but to keep things interesting, chose one with some subtle embellishment – the macrame detailing teamed with the braided straps of the gladiator sandals help create a bit of a relaxed bohemian feel, and so I decided to push it a little further by adding accessories that clearly take their inspiration from India. The result is a cute, feminine, casual summer look that will look great against a tan.

Can’t you picture yourself wearing this drinking cocktails in a little Riviera café?

Anyway, just came across this great retro Alice in Wonderland t-shirt by Truly Madly Deeply on Urban Outfitter’s website. A simple cool tee paired with jeans goes a long way on a casual day, and this one is perfect for such a purpose. £28.

Sheer Beauty

Polka Dots Metallic Mini DressI love this little dress from Karen Walker. I think it’s really original and fun, and of course it’s got polka dots! It’s a bit too short for me, but it’s a great piece mixing sheer fabric, metallic colours and puffy sleeves. If you’re tall and leggy—and have £275 to spend!—get this fantastic statement dress from Urban Outfitters.
