The “It” girls have been basking in the sun, looking as luxurious as ever. There is nothing so endearing, so incredibly beautiful as seeing a woman confident in her skin and boy have these lovely ladies been shining bright like a diamond of late. Fashion bloggers all around, women with impeccable taste in fashion and the kind of style we wished we could pull off; these are the ladies to emulate now as they set new precedents and present themselves to the public with looks that could knock any man’s socks off. While some stick to the ready to wear pieces presented of late on the spring/summer 2015 runway shows around the world, others go all the way and touch the realm of couture, where only the most avid of fashionistas venture into. They know how to look sunny and fresh, like the spring breeze warmed by the sun’s rays. They know how to pull off designer combinations, and sometimes opt to stick to a single house they are loyal to. No matter how they do it, here are 10 awesome summer 2015 looks presented by your favourite It girls that are positively fantabulous.
Lovely Blues from Ohh Couture
Wearing out the bright colors in Seminyak, showing off in Bali, Indonesia, is Haute Couture lover Leonie Sophie. She’s got a personal style blog that covers some pretty awesome look and her latest twin set is simply breathtaking. With a really lively outfit that calls for summer, this fashionista has opted out of her typical neutrals, blacks and greys and gone for a brighter pastel! We love the little satchel bag that is also by the same designer as that twin set with the rounded flower petal like shorts and matching sleeves on the shirt. It is a comfortable outfit that screams spring and summer days on the beach.
Casual Boyfriend Jeans from Song of Style
The Song of Style loves her boyfriend fits with a feminine touch, which means that her distressed jeans can be copied with a similar style. She’s added coral pink pumps, while keeping the shirt in a boyfriend fit as well. A soft colored bag always brings the balance to any scale when it comes to male and female mixes. With the button down shirt that has been left undone to the center of the chest, this is one It girl who loves to layer on the necklaces and even a tasselled collar neckpiece. The jeans themselves taper at the ends, which she has rolled up into cuffs ending just below mid-calf, looking positively terrific all around.
Bohemian Chic from Haut Appetit
She talks about style, she talks about food, she is one of the best food + fashion bloggers and she coaches us about what to wear at the Coachella Festival. Ms. Elizabeth is a blonde bombshell with an appetite for fashion and a thorough understanding of that world altogether. Her advice? Bring on the lace cropped tops with the looser fit and the major comfort level. Mid sleeves are in, the necklines are high and the skin is shown through the lacy embroidery. Paired with frayed ends on black short cut offs with a high waist and high hem, this is an awesome festival look. Boho waves, a lot of silver bracelets, Stuart Weitzman boots, and with all the vintage vibes, this look is rocking the festival grounds.
Summer’s Ginghams from Style Heroine
She’s ricking the gingham. One of the biggest patterns and prints of the spring 2015 season has been the appearance of gingham fabrics with their small and chic checks. It looks like you are wearing a picnic blanket, but who cares? Blue and mild, small checks instead of larger ones that are certainly not as cute and a flattering silhouette is all you need to look like the adorable lady you are. “Much to my surprise its vivid motifs have the effects of the most delicious skin glowing smoothie,” writes one of our favourite It Girls, the Style Heroine. Pairing an Altuzarra dress with a Celine bag, Linda Farrow sunglasses and pumps with ankles straps left unfastened for maximum nonchalance and the look of endless legs, we get a most alluring outfit.
Bright Prints from Happily Grey
The Happily Grey Harvest look is exquisite! There is just something about the way that Mara Hoffman dress silhouettes her body, the way that bomber jacket by French Connection sits on top to give a football player’s wife aura to the blogger in the John Hillin images, the casual look of a Rebecca Minkoff backpack and those Adidas sneakers that really have us turning to state intently. Cut outs, tiebacks, blared skirts and a halter-top. That is one incredible dress that we want right about now. It reminds us of the coral reefs and the sun over the sandy beaches, perhaps from the Maldives. It’s like a whole different reality exists in this look.
Olivia Palermo’s Sunshine Yellow
It Girl Olivia Palermo put all our styles to shame with her totally yellow popping colors that grace her silhouette for the spring season. Her combination of blue and yellow is a happy one reminiscent of sunny skies. The yellow color has been featured by many a designer, from Delpozo to Michael Kors, bringing in warmth and fun to any outfit. The perfect spring ensemble here seems to include a glowing yellow Valentino coat, with a bit more Valentino in the blouse, a pair of simple Paige jeans, a Chloe Drew bag and the loveliest Aquazzura x Olivia Palermo suede booties. Yes, she wears her own styles as well!
Peace, Love, Shea Or Wild Wild West
The 1970s are in, the Wild Wild West is back and we are given the most amazing dish of fringes and suede. Shea Marie’s styling and creative direction meant photos were shot by Matt Petran that gets us tiled up for some rodeo and cowgirl fun. Long messy blonde hair is gorgeous no matter what, particularly left in boho waves. A suede mini skirt is paired with stone clad jewels for the perfect California girl meets high fashion French chic delicate combo. This was a set part of the Chloe runway show on the spring/summer 2015 collection, while the cross-body bag by Barbara Bonner via Intermix is the perfect addition. It is an awesome festival look and will be just right for the Coachella event this weekend.
Sincerely Jules’ Sincerely Free Style
The Free Love look by Sincerely Jules is a sweet and casual one, with a touch of sexy and a whole lot of fun. Short shorts, strappy sandals and aviator sunglasses make for a great combination, with the flowy top in bright contrasting floral prints against a black background really setting up a nice stage. The top is a creation of Free People, while the perfect little white shorts with buttons instead of zippers and frayed ends went well with those Redlands sandals. Brand loyalty is clearly shown here as Jules supports Free People.
Fashion Toast’s Romantic Look
It’s time to toast to the Paris style of Fashion Toast where she spent a weekend in the city of love in the lap of warm luxury, wearing an incredible Chloe embroidered cut out dress, holding a Drew bag paired with a blazer, and having clad her feed in Balenciaga boots. The spring look here appears to be that of a fairy enjoying the sunshine after 6 long months of cold and overcast weather. This is perfection unto itself!
Girly Casual by Late Afternoon
Late Afternoon’s Breezy looks are pretty lovely to say the least, reminding us of the simplicity and warmth that the spring weather inspires within us. A gorgeous lacy top with bell sleeves embroidered at the ends, a tasselled belt tied round the waist and the blouse with buttons heading own the center was by Spell & the Gypsy. The suede pretty stitched skirt was a product of Zara, while that lovely bag was all Chloe. Those sneaker style shoes with the denim toes are totally Chanel, while the rings worn are Wanderlust and the sunglasses nothing but Karen. It is a beautiful look, all soft innocence and sweet romance.
