The heat. The afternoon rain. The fact that we’re more than halfway through the “fun” season… yeah, we’ve got a case of the summer blues. And we’re going to dress the part, too. At least when you’re feeling glum, you can look gorg in shades of periwinkle, aqua, royal and midnight blue. Here’s how…
Stand out in the crowd in an iconic blue hued patterned Emilio Pucci dress. The fun prints scream summer and the long, flowing Maxi-style dress will help you cool off. Or if you want to keep it short and sweet, try Emilio Pucci’s Short Dress in cobalt blue Guipure lace dress with spaghetti straps. Find them both at Emilio Pucci, 155 NE 40th Street, Miami, Florida 33137, 305-576-1830
Guys, you cant go wrong in this heat with a standard yet stylish polo. A crisp Royal Blue version from Dior Homme can be paired with jeans, pants, shorts. Find it at Dior Homme, 161 NE 40th St., Miami, Florida 33137, 305-571-3576.
For dressing in a blue hue head to toe, break up the colors and patterns. Take a cue from Billionaire Italian Couture that mixes skins with solids and textures and gets it right with a python blue bomber jacket paired with blue button down shirt, jeans and python belt. Find Billionaire Italian Couture at 4000 N.E. 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL. 33137, 305-576-2300
Dorothy may have clicked her sparkly red shoes, but Christian Louboutin’s blue crystal Fifi Strass will bring just as much luck if not more, transporting you to the place of your dreams, like shoe heaven. These dazzlers are sure to brighten anyone’s day or at the very least, wardrobe. Find them at Christian Louboutin, 55 NE 40th Street, Miami, Florida 33137, 305-576-6820
Gentleman looking for a shoe in should slip on Prada’s Baltic Blue Prada Saffiano driver. It’s comfortable, chic and goes with shorts, pants, and jeans. Find Prada at 180 NE 40th Street, Miami, Florida 33137, 305-438-2280
Still a fashion staple, the cross-body is great for a girl or guy on-the-go. For the ladies we suggest a Hermès Jypsière in blue jean that features a front zip pocket, a black large pocket and inner pocket for cell phone. For the gents, Louis Vuitton Tadao PM is big enough for the essentials, yet small enough for daily use to and from the office or around town.
