Summer Soft Florals Feminine Look with Zimmermann
Hope everyone had a great long weekend – I can’t believe we’re through the first week of July already, this year is just running by!
As we head even deeper into the Summer heat, I love turning to my linen and cotton midi and maxi dresses to stay comfortable and feel chic.
There is really nothing like linen and cotton as fabrics for the Summer as they allow your body to breathe and are the best at keeping cool(er). I always encourage my clients to opt for those in their Summer clothing – synthetics might look sleek and nice, but they don’t breathe and can feel quite uncomfortable. Stylist Tip: try to make it a habit to check the fiber content label before purchasing your clothing – it does a great job at telling you how the fabric will behave, how much care it will need, and foreshadow the comfort and longevity of the piece.
Now, back to the maxi dresses. I’ve been loving Zimmermann lately, and this Cassia dress was something I discovered when shopping with one of my clients a couple of weeks ago – I knew I wanted to style it for myself too as it’s such a great staple! I created a simple, no -rills outfit with it, which is something you can pull together in 2 minutes flat – and wear to anything from work (depending on your dress code, of course), to a fabulous girls brunch, date, or even a Summer wedding.
Here are the exact ingredients to this outfit formula:
- The Cotton Maxi Dress. This piece was stunning on my client who is taller than me, but also works great for my height (I’m 5’1″ for reference, wearing size “0”). I love the tighter bodice and flowy skirt, the fabric has weight but is not heavy, and the shoulder straps are flirty and fun.
- A Mini Bag. I think this Chloe Mini Marcie is such a great Summer bag – and I absolutely adore this “Cashmere Grey” color. I think the tone-on-tone bag goes really nicely with this dress as it creates an elegant, polished feel – and these colors really feel like Summer – peaceful, calm and a little muted. It comes in a lot of other colors too!
- The Crown Flat Sandals. These Coclico Sandals have been the most popular style for my clients this Season – and I knew I had to get a pair for myself. They are so comfortable and the “Deep Rose” color I chose goes with everything and adds a feminine touch to my outfits (they also come in a few other shades). I love Coclico shoes as I’ve said in the past, and really enjoy introducing my clients to their adorable Nolita store – and to the brand, which quickly becomes a favorite. I’ve recently started offering virtual shopping sessions with the brand – where I curate a selection to have sent to you directly, which you can try on at home and only keep what you love (sending back the rest). If you’re interested in setting it up, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
I hope this inspires you to try out a similar outfit this Summer! As always, please feel free to share the outfits you create via Instagram, using hashtag #ModnitsaOutfit in your posts, and I’ll be sure repost them on my stories!
