What Is Summer 2014 All About ? : 5 Pieces You Need

We are getting very busy at both Oscar and O&W as a lot of new stock is coming from the USA and Europe. Many clothing pieces but also accessories and jewellery, all trendy and stylish for you to be the one Melbourne fashionista.

Today's post asks the right question : what is summer 2014 all about ? We are not talking about high end fashion {like Maison Martin Margiela, Chanel, Louis Vuitton ...} but about an every day trend. A lot of our brands show the best styles for the new season : fabric, colour, shape, structure ..., and more than anything, timeless pieces.

We all know that trends are short-lived, but we always surprise ourselves wearing the same top or shoes year after year. What we really wanted this year is to offer you the best pieces you will love to wear day after day and season after season.


So let's talk about the subject of the post. There are 5 items you have to have in your wardrobe this summer {and winter} : 

- a pair of jeans

- a blazer

- a casual top

- a dress

- a kimono

These 5 pieces will be your main outfits for Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

But how to wear them ? It is more simple than you think. First of all, we all have a pair of jeans, whether they are skinny, straight leg or flare. We would basically advice a pair of skinny leg as it's fits every figure and it is the easiest to wear. Go for a medium dark wash as it is the one colour to wear all year.

Then comes the blazer. This piece will always finish an outfit and will give it structure and femininity, whatever other pieces you wear. Choose it black as a basic. Then get a white and/or a light coloured. It will be easier than a bright colour and you will never get bored. Do not think you can't wear a blazer in summer, you would be wrong. Pick a light fabric if you are not too sure, and you'll see you can't live without it.

Casual top : because you just need one. Get the colour you like best, just don't forget to keep it simple. And loose.

A dress : pick the one that will fit your figure and flatter your body. Maxi, mini, midi, loose or fitted, the choice is yours. Play with colours for summer and go subtle for winter.

Last but not least : the kimono. It is THE ONE piece of the summer. Perfect and timeless, you'll see you can wear it with anything, it works ! Find the right print and colour to match your skin. Then play with everything else : fringes, fabric, length ... So much to do around a kimono.
