    It's the first color we think of when we say summer. So special, so much so that it is the protagonist even in winter: white.
    Only white manages to provide a look so candid and chic at the same time. Let's find out the inevitable pieces of the summer wardrobe, which we will also wear in September.

    When talking about pantsuit, the catwalks have decreed that the coolest must have a masculine look, exalting to the maximum the feminine silhouette. Christiano Burani perfectly interprets the mood, which we will find again the next cold season, with the suit formed by the jacket tied at the waist that recalls the military uniforms, juxtaposed to the wide trousers with pleats with a strong wide-leg slacks appeal. Proving that, even with a certain rigor, we can be perfectly elegant.

    In a respectable summer wardrobe, the one thing that can't (really) be missing is this: the white shirt. Versatile, protagonist, despite the fashions, it remains an evergreen. In order not to be obvious, DROMe interprets it with a "nonconformist" attitude: a school collar, circular buttoning, leg-of-mutton sleeves and overlapping length accentuated by the asymmetrical cut. Certainly, the wearer does not go unnoticed, and we like it.

    Could there not be the super-feminine fluttering dress? The newest was created by Alberto Zambelli, a mix between a Greek goddess and a post-futurist figure. The thing that makes it so special? Transparency. With strategic drapes that play maliciously in a vain attempt to hide the body, it will be bad or good. The way to make it accessible even to mere mortals? Wear a simple sheath dress with thin jersey straps under it, or opt for a crop top with leggings, the latter being the top item of the moment. 

    The shorts or bermuda are very popular again. In the past, they were a necessity, today a way to be fashionable. The hottest are very skimpy, not surprisingly they are called "hot pants", let's overlook this variant given to teenagers and let's focus on the length that best enhances all, 10 cm above the knee. The Kocca model in denim cotton, in addition to the “worn out” looks and the iridescent applications of stones and rhinestones, we like it for the sporty/chic line. Among the most worn by bloggers and influencers.

    Speaking always of trends, a trend that continues to reconfirm itself are the items that are inspired by sport, made more feminine by cuts or extremely sartorial materials, for day wear full of commitments, not just casual, but also where the dress code is more accurate. The two supermodels, Bella and Gigi Hadid, have often been spotted with this type of clothing. Bershka focuses on one of the key pieces, the mini summer biker jacket, with a sporty cut but a glamorous taste. The wide raglan sleeve and the waist length make it an ideal piece to wear even in September in the city.

    Accessories have always played a decisive role, whether it is a total white outfit or a look where the hint of white detail is used for that touch of freshness, so sought after in the last months. Paloma Barceló with the “Alois” fit, a middle ground between a LOW SHOE and a SLINGBACK, conquers with its retro allure but contemporary at the same time. The intertwining of different sizes in the upper and in the strap, makes it a refined shoe, to be worn both at day and at night. Long live the new elegance, but above all the comfort. 

    The inseparable friend of all time? The bag. For the day, inevitably, the biggest and most comfortable sizes dominate: shoppers, maxi bags and directly from the grandmothers' trunks, straw baskets, also adored by the very young girls. In the evening, the sizes are drastically reduced to make room for clutches, shoulder bags and clutch bags, super colorful and with a thousand decorations and sparkles. Our expert suggests the passe-partout model "Cece", by Michael Michael Kors, a convertible shoulder leather bag with studs and golden snap closure. An ideal model to wear when returning to the city, it is suitable for everyday tasks, from work to an aperitif. 


    Jewels and Bijou, can really give the right twist to your outfit, especially if they are original and they manage to combine beautiful and useful like the Morellato watch bracelet. This piece belongs to the "Drops" collection, in silver metal with two side charms and a gold case with Swarovski decoration on the dial. Sometimes, just a hint of light can give to the old style a different taste. In our case it is a watch/bracelet, but it could also be a necklace, a pair of earrings or a bracelet. Not surprisingly, the models accustomed to traveling often and with the need to always be perfect for various tasks, with a simple sheath dress, changing accessories, can transform it from a sporty to a chic outfit. Let's learn from them.
