How to Style: Daisy Dukes

img_3360-1It’s a well known fact that us Brits are slightly obsessed with the weather. Talking about it, complaining about it, planning around it – you get the drift. Recently things have been on the up and we’ve been treated to some seriously tropical temps… so it’s only fair that the Daisy Dukes make their annual appearance.

Now shorts, and more specifically Daisy Dukes, can be a scary thing. Especially in London and big cities where people tend to dress a little more modestly in boiling hot weather. If you opt for these daringly short shorts, you could be open to some funny stares.

This is why I love to throw a sheer dress/jacket on top, and this ZARA number just fits the summer bill perfectly!!

The colour is frankly perfect for this time of year, the lighter tone really brings out the early Summer tan.

Also I’m totally crushing on the combination of tan and denim, the colours work so well together. This is no accident – it’s simply down to the fact that blue and tan (orange) are opposites on the colour wheel, making them ideal outfit partners.

If you’d love to learn more about matching colours and why some combos just work, why not check out my previous blog How to: Mix and Match Colours.

I’m off to go and enjoy the sunshine some more, but as always I’ve linked some of the pieces from this post and dress alternatives below.

Have a good weekend guys!
