Don’t you just love summer? The lazing around by the pool working on that bronzy tan while sipping on lemonade. With the temperatures rising so should your hemlines. The balmy weather is the perfect excuse to break out your skimpiest, shortest outfits. Ditch those layers and start opting for breezy fabrics and lightweight shoes. And that’s where Crocs come in. The shoe brand that’s known for its super comfy shoes has come out with a great new range of wedges, flip flops and loafers in bright peppy colours that you will *just* be dying to wear. If you’re sartorially challenged I’ve listed a few dressing ideas to nudge you onto the right path.

For a stroll on the beach, start with the basic – cut off denim shorts and a ganji. The brighter the better – after all it is summer.  A straw fedora that will protect your locks from the harmful sun rays, yet make you look pulled together. Add aviators  for an extra dose of glam.

A lunch date?  Sunday brunch? Make your dress do the talking – opt for a monochrome chevron print maxi. This print will make you look taller and slimmer. Yay! No need to head to gym right? Stacked bangles or bracelets make a perfect marriage with this breezy look. Ditch the heavy tote and choose satchel sling bag, finally complete the look with colourful wedges.

We haven’t forgotten you; boys! I can’t think of anything better than men taking a leaf from the nautical, preppy trend. Breton striped collared tees paired with chino bermudas make for a great casual outfit. Wayfarers will add a hip vibe to your overall look. Complete it with blue sneakers.

I simply can’t wean off my denim addiction. If you’re sailing in the same boat and find jeans too heavy to wear during summer, I have a solution. Pick a lightweight shirt-dress instead. Tan works brilliantly against denim, so opt for a bag in that shade. Gold jewellery and loafers will round off this look perfectly.
