Don’t let Mercury’s retrograde spoil your plans.
Mercury will be in retrograde in July; that is, it will move backwards. As the planet is said to rule areas in relation to communication, what this means is there is a higher chance of misunderstandings occuring due to a breakdown in communication, as well as heightened difficulties in conveying what you mean without conflict. To help you buffer the negative effects of this phenomenon, why not add a dash of good luck this month by wearing your lucky colour according to your horoscope? The universe, we think, has all of the answers to help you get those good vibes.
For Cancerians and Leos born in July, 1) happy birthday and 2) wear black and silver respectively in the month of July.
Whether you’re wearing this one-piece by the pool/beach or as a bodysuit paired with a pair of wide-legged jeans, one thing’s for sure: You’re bound to turn heads with this rich aubergine swimsuit, thanks to that sultry dip in the front.
If you’re looking for a chic bag to tote around on the weekends, look no further than this feminine pink Furla creation. Its cute compact shape is just the right size — which means you get all the sass without all the extra weight that comes along with carrying way too much.
Vintage is always in style, especially when it comes in a classic four leaf clover design. Wear this pair of Van Cleef & Arpels stud earrings with a velvet gown to channel old Hollywood glamour.
Juun.J is a cult favourite label — it’s known for its fusion of avant-garde designs with classic tailoring — from South Korea, and if it isn’t already, it ought to be part of your street style repertoire. Here, they’ve taken a simple black T-shirt and given it a whole lot of character with a fantastical graffiti print of an angry gorilla. Pair this vocal piece with a pair of black denim jeans and chunky dad sneakers to show you couldn’t care less.
Imagine this: You’re at a yacht party, dressed in a white linen dress, with a mimosa in hand. The finishing touch to that image? This pair of sparkling pearl embellished Pazzion sandals which deftly keeps a nice balance between I-am-stylish and I-don’t-really-care.
Orange is the new black, especially when summer calls for happier, brighter hues. So although we can never diss the usual black sunnies, swop them out for this swanky Gentle Monster piece that will make a breezy sundress look even cooler.
Tweed jackets can, unfortunately, look dated and like something you dug out from your grandma’s closet. But this Gucci piece, which comes in a shade of seafoam green — which we dare say is a universally pleasing hue — is both youthful and quirky. Wear it with its matching skirt and slip into some booties for a playful touch.
If the white blouses in your wardrobe are uninspiring at best, then it’s time for you to swap them out for this romantic Peter Pilotto iteration. The bishop sleeves, pussybow tie and cascading ruffle details make this shirt anything but boring.
Hot pink might be a loud, daunting colour to pull off as an outfit. So opt for these Roger Vivier buckle pumps instead, where it can easily jazz up a simple LBD or jumpsuit.
There’s truly nothing we don’t like about this bag. It’s cute, has a neutral salmon brown shade that can be worn with any outfit and has sleek gold hardware — we’d take it anywhere with us, really.
Shirt dresses are great for weekends; in fact, they are just great, period. We love that they are polished, but at the same time, casual and laidback. This green dress from Pomelo Fashion works for those who want a pop of colour but not go too overboard. When worn with hoop earrings and accessorised with a basket bag, it’s the perfect fuss-free ensemble for whatever you may be up to on your off-days.
Part of Danish jeweller Ole Lynggaard’s Nature collection, this ring was designed to recreate the look of a twig, down to its grooves and rings. Even if you’re not a nature lover, you’d still appreciate its simple elegance. You can wear it solo but we say stack it for an edgier effect.
