Summer capsule – What to wear in August

July 27, 2022

August is almost here. It’s the month that has most of the summer flair. The days pass slowly like stress has taken a holiday too. The weeks are relaxing and at the office, it feels like every day is Friday. If you’re like us in Europe, then you know that it is the whole month off. So what to wear in August, the hottest month of the year?

Our editorial has lots of inspirations for you to use that month. For example, we talked about how to put together a summer vacation capsule wardrobe. By the way, stylists and fashion experts say that to pack the perfect holiday suitcase, you always have to start by choosing the look you’re going to travel with. So take a look at the article we showcase 4 retro airport looks that are absolutely timeless. And once you’ve landed in your dream destination, nothing better than to start relaxing with a summer drink. That’s why we wrote the article Summer outfits inspired by our favourite summer cocktails. However, new fashion and style inspirations are always welcome, right? Good to get a new idea on how to style your outfits, or you find that you just need to buy that top or dress to make your whole wardrobe look updated again.

Greece, I’m coming

This COS look is perfect for a week on an island. The yellow dress will make you pop up in the blue-green-white landscape. We chose a chic chunky slipper from Marsèl, but we also picked an affordable model. Style the look with a silver chain necklace from Atu Body Couture and any crochet bag. We love the Prada one, but you can also get this one from TopShop. I can’t leave the house if I’m not wearing perfume, I feel naked. And I am addicted to everything Diptyque does.

A wide-cut dress with sandals is also a beautiful look to wear in August in the city.

Everyone important is in St Tropez

The Miu Miu look that Angela Rozas Sais is wearing in St Tropez is super easygoing and sexy at the same time. The pareo skirt can be worn day and night, just changing the accessories and shoes. And fit perfectly with Anine Bing‘s bikini. The Amélia Studio sandal is for the day, and you have the affordable option here. For the night, nothing chicer and beach style than Miu Miu kitten heels sandal. And the yellow bag is perfect to break up the Morticia Addams look (remember the Addams family?), and here you have another cute option.

Queen of the Desert

You won’t believe it, but in Comporta, Portugal, there is a desert beach in the middle of August. And there you will be inspired by the scent of this delicious perfume from Louis Vuitton, Fleur du Desert. For this look, the keyword is the linen Kaftan from Tory Burch, styled with a Staud sand wedge slipper (very 80s). The bikini is the signature crinkled fabric from British brand HUNZA G which seamless crinkle technology makes each piece one-size-fits-all. Let yourself be inspired by some princesses of the desert and put effort into the details and accessories.

Hope you liked our suggestions on what to wear in August. And happy holidays, you deserve it.
