Hello there dears!
Knits are huge this season, especially crochet and lace! The more granny chic and authentic the look, the better!
For this post we played with different fabrics and textures that are right in the summer heat – especially in a city as humid as Tel Aviv.
Rony wore light crème high waisted lace shorts with a puffy sleeved flower print button up shirt, beige wedges and retro sunglasses. Speaking of granny chic, the jacket Rony wore belongs to her grandmother and is a fabulous mixture of light fabric and structured retro shape.
As the shorts have a beautiful pattern that Rony wanted to show off, she wore a light colored patterned shirt tucked in so that both the stitching and the color of the shorts are emphasized.
To give her look some edge, Rony wore a woven gold African-inspired necklace with a contrasting pattern and a vintage woven clutch.
I on the other hand went all out for the granny/flowery look. I wore low waisted crochet shorts with a floral tunic top, a thin camel belt and knit granny vest.
since the shorts are low waisted, the only tops they look classy with are long voluminous ones. The contrast in volumes between the shorts and the top is very flattering and makes my legs look extra long!
I wore my outfit with camel wedges and a big straw hat, also adorned with flowers. The big gold link necklace I wore actually used to be a belt but I decided to wear it as jewelry!
The light, breathable fabrics and the creamy colors go perfectly in the hot summer days. However, don’t forget to give your outfit a little eye catching edge here and there – keep it interesting, cool, and unexpected!
Till next Time!
Rony & Vera
