As summer comes to an end on the calendar and places around the world are cooling down; we’re left to drizzle in the heat & current incidents here in Cairo. So I’ve been looking through Resort collections and I came by the Dior collection by no other than their new creative director & designer Raf Simons. Did I mention I’m in love with this guy’s fine taste? Regardless of his stubbornness when it comes to his choice of models; he’s definitely bringing back something glamorous & edgy to the Dior house. His first Resort collection for Dior was a pleasing blend of textures & trends- lace, sheer & bold colors! Can anyone complain? I was happy to see a lot of looks that could be incorporated to fun summer internship/job appropriate outfits & other casual summer fun looks. Want to see how? Read on!

1.     Modern LBD

This look is an interesting interpretation of the everlasting classic lbd, I like how the lace keeps it sophisticated yet the zipper tones it down for casual wear. It’s definitely a classy look that can be taken anywhere from the office to a day out.

Get the look:

Recreate this outfit by pairing a lbd with a lace top, pick a lbd with a zipper like the dress above which could be easily slid a few inches down to reveal more of the lace top, or you could go for a lace top with a higher neckline to have the lace peek through any lbd without the need for a zipper. If you’re not the mix & match type, or you prefer the asymmetrical touch in the outfit, you could always go for a lbd that combines lace & asymmetry in one go. Add these pumps with minor yet unique detailing to add edge to the outfit.

2.     Bold Colors

Colored pants have been around for a while, but this outfit takes it to a whole new level of sophisticated chic.  It also shows you don’t have to show much skin to stay trendy & cool in summer.

Get the Look:

blouse, pants, shoes, bag

For this outfits, start by paring a pair of colored pants – in this case I chose red since I couldn’t find orange- with a white blouse with structured shoulders & v-neckline. A neutral two-toned pair of heels & bag adds interest to the outfit without overwhelming it.

3.     Summer Dress

This look combines all the summer trends so effortlessly- sheer, color, asymmetry- it’s hard not to fall in love.

Get the look:

dress1, clutch, handbag, dress2, shoes1, shoes2

This runway look inspired to create not only one outfit but two. For a night out with friends go for a asymmetrical monochrome dress, and add hints of bold colors like these blue shoes & yellow clutch. For a more work appropriate environment, go for a multi-toned shift dress, play it safe with black pumps but add a bit of excitement with a large yellow bag.
