The ultimate summer dressing guide
July 12th, 2021
It’s no secret to anyone who knows me that most of my wardrobe is already Decjuba and that it’s my absolute go-to for effortless style on any occasion.
So, to get excited about the festive season and welcome my favourite time of year, I headed in store for a wardrobe refresh and have put together a little Summer dressing guide for you all.
It’s so rare that you can shop somewhere and find outfit options covering everything from daytime denim to evening elegance, but Decjuba never fails to deliver the goods! I even found two different options for each occasion on the festive list, so there’s something for whatever vibe you’re feeling on the day.
Christmas lunch ready
We generally celebrate Christmas Day over a long family lunch at home, but I still like to add a touch of glamour and get dressed up for the occasion. I chose the Rowena High Neck Maxi Dress for this first look because it’s not only delightfully elegant in length and design but also deceivingly practical in the waistline region!
I LOVE how maxi dresses can be quite dressy and elongating but also allow full movement (and full festive food coma) without any discomfort or unzipping required at the end of a big holiday meal. I can also never go past something black, plus this maxi can double as the ultimate party dress by adding some jewellery and heels.
You might like to leave the maxi for the evening segment of celebrations if you have multiple events on Christmas Day or you might simply feel a little more casual, in which case denim is always a good idea. I chose this fabulous Piper Button Down Dress for looking dressier than it feels but also for its enduring versatility.
While it gives the same relaxed appearance as denim shorts or jeans, a dress is so much more comfortable and breathable especially in the warmer months of sticky thighs and swollen everything. I paired it with sneakers for a more daytime, street style look (I’d rock a ballgown with sneakers if I could – these Esme Sneakers are a staple in my wardrobe), but I’d equally dress it up with a heel and some statement earrings if I wanted to wear it in the evening.
