FAVE 5: Rad In Red | Clozette


Undoubtedly, red can be an intimidating colour to wear because it’s bold and eye-catching. Aside from that, it can be quite difficult to style without overpowering your other pieces. But fret not! Our Clozetters are here to show how to own the shade and strut it with confidence.

There's no denying that halter silhouettes are really cute. Who knew that they could also work for one-piece swimsuits? Try this trend if you want to show off your curves in a classy way. Find something that's in bright colours to suit the cheerful summer mood.

Bring a splash of fun to your swimwear wardrobe by going for cheeky prints. Whether it's flamingoes or strawberries, a little daintiness can't hurt. After all, summer is all about experimenting with different colours and prints. 


Gingham

That's right, gingham is back! This picnic mat print has now crossed into beachwear territory. We bet you already own at least one gingham piece, and with that, you can do a matchy-matchy look for your cover-up ensemble when you're out of the water. You can just easily pair either a gingham skirt or crop top with a gingham bikini and it will look really cute. 


Bright blues

You'd think pastels have the spotlight this summer. Well, you'd be wrong because it's time for bright blues to shine. Powder blue, azure and cobalt are popular choices for the season. We suggest you complement these shades by wearing accessories in contrasting colours, like a yellow hat or orange flip-flops.
