Sun protection needn’t be mundane. This Summer you can stay cool in the shade and protected from the sun whilst being undeniably chic, sophisticatedly sexy and fantastically fashion forward.
As the most eye-catching accessory you can wear, a hat instantly draws attention to your face. Whether you are lounging by the pool; attending a chic Summer wedding; or exploring a far away holiday destination – a wide-brim Summer hat is a fail-safe option for effortlessly enchanting and perfectly polished dressing.
Pair with streamlined, neutral pieces for a polished take on this typically rock-and-roll accessory. Wear with big sunglasses; bright luscious red lipstick; and a little black dress for a classically, darling Parisian look.
At Temperley London, bold black hats were worn with vivid red, cream and black. Taking inspiration from the English café society of the fifties and sixties, the collection was startlingly chic and fluently cool.
Will you top your look with a hat this Summer? xx

They come from the Emerald City…
Bedazzling Emerald Gemstones are enchanting the world’s most stylish.
Appearing on the lobes of some of Hollywood’s loveliest leading ladies, Emerald earrings add a hypnotising burst of colour to an assortment of looks.
Emerald earrings can add a splash of sophistication, elegance and daring to your look. You can add a gorgeous pop of colour to a neutral outfit or be brilliantly bold and wear with a vivid contrasting colour. Make them big and beautiful (aka Julianne Moore – pictured below) or go sweet yet dramatic with emerald studs (like Blake Lively – pictured below).
Emeralds are a radiant, intense shade of green and are considered by many to enhance well-being and bring good luck. In ancient Rome, green was the colour of Venus, the goddess of beauty and love. The magnificent shade also conveys harmony and love of nature.
Would you dress your lobes in Emeralds? xx
