Deciding an outfit for a weekend brunch is possibly the most challenging aspect of dressing up. Maybe not as much for men, but there’s usually a tornado in my closet prior to one such event.
It’s either a battle between flaunting the finest threads without looking overdone, or camouflaging yourself amongst all the floral dresses surrounding the colourful fruit bowls.
It’s a challenge, don’t you agree?
What has given me hope is this spring 2012 look book by Pola Thompson. With a mature colure palette of coral, white, navy and violet, it’s almost certain that you wouldn’t have to dip yourself in the garden of five senses. Covering all summer essentials, from petite crop tops, overflowing drapy kimonos, loose tees and high-waisted shorts, the collection hits all the right notes for this New York-based label.
The ruched and elastic hems under the waist give every piece the consciously relaxed persona, but it’s the visual quality of each fabric that makes it look expensive. The cooling fabrics – crisp cotton, lightweight silks and smooth suede trimmings make it even more summer-friendly.
However, not guaranteeing the appreciating for the arbitrary placed karate-style belts and scientist jackets with a midi-length skirt and pants. But if they do fancy you, keep them handy for a countryside holiday.
