Summer is upon us and, with the hot season, the desire to relax by the sea or in the mountains is irresistible. However, that boring compulsion to prepare the suitcase to leave for the holidays is not, especially when you do not know what to choose for the social evenings. Between cocktail parties in the most popular tourist destinations, events until late in the disco or, simply, an aperitif on the beach with friends. Sometimes, it is difficult to select garments that are able to combine elegance and comfort with an eye to the trends in vogue. But fashion always offers unexpected solutions to fashion lovers who know how to grasp them: jumpsuits, caftans and practical cut-out dresses, easily wearable and that do not require ironing once they are taken out of the trolley. And, again, trendy accessories that take up little space in your luggage, leggings, crop tops and trendy shoes to slip into the bag in no time. From the travel brand L’Équilibriste founded by Francesca Pecchia, who will inaugurate her boutique on Thursday 16 June in via dei Prefetti in Rome, passing through Zara, H&M And Asos Design. Here you are 5 summer must haves that allow you to be impeccable, avoiding spending a fortune, even if you stay in the city with the sun.
1. Leggings with stars
Comfortable, snug, with essential lines and suitable for balancing on a heel 12. The leggings embellished with small stars go crazy on the web and are adored by influencers, well-known faces of the small or big screen who combine them with dark glasses and sneakers for a walk in the greenery or on the water’s edge. Vitamin and energetic colors characterize sportswear looks that certainly do not go unnoticed. From Martina Stella to Elisabetta Gregoraci, Ilary Blasi, Elisabetta Canalis and Matilde Brandi, the star-studded leggings shine and conquer the stars.
2. Lycra rompers
Practical to fold and take with you before traveling, the lycra suits allow you to leave the iron at home and are ready to be shown off during cool happenings organized in seaside resorts or, if you like, during the course metropolitan initiatives if work leaves no room for flights to dream destinations. A daily passepartout in solid color, or with multicolor patterns, which adapts to the most diverse needs, when there is no time to dedicate oneself meticulously to one’s wardrobe.
3. Kaftans with an elongated silhouette
Chromatic shades, solid colors, floral prints, flared sleeves, V-neck. Kaftans are a summer evergreen: the cover-up, in particular the one with the elongated silhouette, returns as protagonist every year. Between embroidery and graphics, sustainable fabrics, satin and organic cotton, it transforms into an indispensable garment to be dressed in an instant, perhaps accompanied by a straw bag that will make the casual outfit equally chic thanks to the right attention to refined details.
4. Platform sandals and ballet flats
Tremble, the dancers are back. Yet they have always remained there, waiting to be worn. They marry miniskirts and skinny jeans, there are hyper-colored versions enriched with bows, while sandals are perfect together with oversized or low-waisted trousers. For next summer, the platforms seem to have the upper hand, evoking those timeless suggestions of the 90s after having dominated the catwalks of the most prestigious fashion weeks. Power to the wedges and the plateau.
5. Minidresses and cut-out dresses
Revolutionaries, with a sophisticated touch with a sensual accent that is expressed in veiled transparencies, preferring that “see-through” effect that goes well with blazers or soft and light jackets. Crochet minidresses and longer pleated cut-out dresses are par excellence the must-have of spring-summer 2022, often characterized by laces. Ideal for those who love to challenge the rules, they enhance the female figure and, with that minimal allure, they will amaze under the motto “less is more”.
