Summer is here so let’s update your playlist and your wardrobe.

Summer is a time for sun, fun, and general leisure. The best way to enhance the experience is by adding the right music. That’s why from June to August, radio stations, music sites, and social media designate the perfect summer songs and play them on repeat. Past songs of the summer have included Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Pharrell’s “Happy”.

A summer jam is not just any song. It is one that is usually released in the preceding spring, it’s upbeat, and it has a way of making everyone who listens to it feel instantly better. Perfect for road trips, barbecues, beach days, and festivals, a great summer song invites you to go out into the world, fall in love, or have an adventure. It sweeps you up and makes you want to dance like there’s no tomorrow.

The best time to listen to this music: when you want to get into a summertime mindset.

Here are 3 outfits inspired by the summer songs of 2016:

“Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake

I love this positive song about feeling good and expressing your happiness through your dance moves. Not only is this song ebullient and exciting, but the video shows off a variety of people bouncing, bopping, and boogieing to the lighthearted track. It’s fabulous and fun.

Recreate Justin’s outfit and embrace summer whites with a striped tank and twill shorts. Make the most of those long days with a cute watch. Slip on a pair of sneakers for all your dancing needs, then finish the look with a bit of sunshine and sun shaped earrings.

“This Is What You Came For” by Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna

Calvin Harris is a master at creating songs that inspire people to dance. His third collaboration with Rihanna is no exception; “This Is What You Came For” has all the elements of a summer anthem. The perfect mesh of Rihanna’s R&B and Calvin Harris’ electronic vibes, this effervescent song stays with you long after you hear it. (And that video?! Perfection.)

Ideal for festival season, days at the carnival, and all activities that start during the day and last well into the night, this look will ensure all eyes are on you. This metallic co-ord set pays homage to Rihanna’s oversized jumpsuit while keeping you cool. Enhance your tan with a glowy bronzer. Keep your hair out of your face with embellished pins. Complete the outfit with comfy sandals and a pretty wristlet.

“One Dance” by Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla

This song is EVERYWHERE and for good reason: It’s a true gem, and it’s from Drake’s new album “Views from the 6”. Reggae influences and a cool backing track make this the perfect track for chilling out after a long day of sun.

Whether you are hanging out around a bonfire or ambling down the boardwalk, this outfit embraces the light of summer for a vibrant look. During Drake’s performance, the lights bounce right off of him, so mirror that effect with a flowy iridescent tank. Black shorts keep the focus on the top. Beauty and function meet in a lipgloss with SPF 30 to protect your lips from the sun. Protect your eyes with cool rainbow sunnies. Trip the light fantastic with prism earrings and finish the outfit with cute, embellished flip-flops.

Have a great summer, guys!

FASHION TREND REPORT: PALM PRINTS

Posted on Updated on

9c96d56a5ff5713b2729d795f76ddd61

Designers took a cue from nature this season by incorporating breezy palm-tree prints into their collections.

If you’re feeling a little pained watching the summer fly by from your office window, might we suggest a little sartorial salve by way of cheerful palm-tree prints from the Spring 2014 runway shows? More Designers sent models walking down the runway decked out in this tropical motif.

We love palm-tree prints because they transport us to the summer sands and warm breezes of vacations past. Plus, they make dressing fun and playful. Palm-tree prints are also the perfect alternative for women who find traditional florals to be too feminine.
These tropical prints have also hit our favorite stores. Check out a few of the pieces on our wish lists below and scoop up one or two for yourself.

GALA EVENT ORGANISED BY LUISA VIA ROMA ON THE OCCASION OF HER FIRENZE4EVER, AN EVENT “ON WATER”

Pitti90 is approaching. Let’s take a look at the news of the Kermesse of Fortezza da Basso, trying to make predictions based on rumors and indiscretions of traders, exhibitors and journalists.

Speculating on the outcome of Pitti may be taken for granted, considering the increasing success, but there are variables difficult to estimate. The agenda rich of events, the selection of historical brands, and the attention paid to the emerging names and the electric and international atmosphere that makes Florence the most interesting centre of gravity of style and trends worldwide, if you follow the communications about this event, either as private or as professional operator, you will be able to understand a lot about its importance.

News, innovation, inspiration and more are expected from Pitti Immagine Uomo 90, a restless boiling magma from which many people take a cue. The precious experimentation of materials and fabrics is food for thought for designers’ new models and collections, as well as a throwback to the pure tailoring and an enhancement of our Made in Italy in its classic aspects, connotations of a style which always distinguishes the character of our Country.

A zoom on the best of “Fashion and Italian Design” (that highlights Italian new and young talents’ work) is realized in association with foreigner influences. Made in Italy and internationalization seem to be the trend.

We all know that Italian Fashion was born in Florence, but today, how can Florence exceed the dominance of Milan?

The Florentine Fashion Week, with Pitti Uomo, not only resists but it is strongly proactive, thanks to a fair hosting the best of men’s fashion offer of the world, that has several research brands and very high quality, and thanks also to a program of events, exhibitions, parades from emerging talents, successful designers and contemporary artists. This encourages the best fashion buyers of the world to come to Florence to observe new Season trends, to buy highly selected collections and to join events in one of the most beautiful and characteristic cities in the world. So it is the clever mix of high quality ingredients that builds up the Florentine successful recipe. Furthermore, the extraordinary architectural and aesthetic quality of the fairgrounds and the city is the reason why almost all the international buyers don’t miss it.

This exposition leads the world to Florence, that take advantage of a highly qualified and excellent quality business tourism flow that would be otherwise difficult to detect, and on this target, the city can improve the quality of the accommodation facilities and cultural opportunities. But not only. Italy is one of the most beloved destinations for tourists and its historic and architectural structure makes it a unique site to stage also the productive sectors, such as fashion. Therefore we hope for a continuous and strategic investment to attract the best traders and trend setters of the world in Florence.

LUISAVIAROMA

builds a bridge to the future on the Arno River.
The Bridge of Love is a conceptual installation conceived and designed by architect Claudio Nardi that symbolizes the will to provide hope to people in difficult situations. The project aims to raise public awareness for the refugee crisis and is a part of the World Refugee Day 2016 celebration event program.
Bianca Balti, guest at the charity gala dinner to inaugurate The Bridge of Love on June 13. Starting June 14, the outfit worn by the supermodel during the dinner will be available for purchase at LUISAVIAROMA.COM.
All proceeds from the gala dinner and sale of the outfit will be donated to The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR). In particular, the ‘Lifeline Jordan’ project that provides direct economic assistance for families of Syrian refugees who have found asylum in Jordan.*
*Since the beginning of the war in Syria until now, 4.8 million people have left the country. Among those, more than 630,000 have sought refuge in Jordan. Through ‘Lifeline Jordan’, UNCHR sustains roughly 135,000 people, half of which are children, by providing each family with basic needs such as housing, food, medical care and education thanks to a contribution of approximately 1,500 euro a year. The availability of a minimum monthly income allows families to survive without spiraling into extreme poverty which could push them to consider risky decisions, such as crossing the Mediterranean.

BLACK SHOES

I’m not done covering Sydney fashion at least for this week (no worries, Milan Men’s and Couture Paris coming up soon).

With all the monochromatic looks one detail I noticed this time again, the shoes !  I haven’t seen that many black heels at once, especially the most simple version, an elegant heeled sandal with a simple strap that Gianvito Rossi and Givenchy seem to do best.

I love this type of simple heel, it will go with everything. The problem at least for me, my feet don’t look great in them, I’m yet to find the right strap placement for my toes, does this make sense ?

Here we go with many many shoes from Sydney’s fashion week, all in black, heels and flats.
