The secret to a stylish and affordable summer wardrobe, is knowing how to wear that one piece you love over and over again. And a shirt is one of those key wardrobe pieces that can take you through a hot sunny summer season.
My Top Pick
The eye catching Spot Print shirt with short rolled sleeves and cute boxy crop fit.
It is one of those pieces that you can dress up or down and will look equally good with a pair of worn jeans or a smart work trousers.
The flattering V neckline gives the shirt a subtle sensual feel making it the right choice for a pair of Black Denim lace shorts, paired with your favourite bikini, a cute mini basket and sandals for a day of fun on the beach.
Summer holidays are for sleeping in and only waking up in time for brunch. The loose fit and boxy crop fit make this shirt super easy to wear and great to pair with just about anything, like the khaki midi skirt and slider sandals for a simple and easy brunch look.
The rust color makes it a perfect piece for a neutral monochrome look. Pair it with a chic pair of tapered trouser in a neutral color like the Stone trousers, brown leather handbag and crochet gold slingbacks for a easy-to-wear Monday or Friday #ootd.
If there is anything that is going to make your life easy on a hot summer's day, whether for work or play then it is a good shirt that is easy to wear, time and time again.
Now we do not advise it, but a sneaky “sick day”, is a well deserved break , especially if you had a week from hell or a weekend that was just to much fun or if your are in need for some TLC.
A day to lounge around in your PJ's binging on Prosecco and Netflix, is a must, and thanks to Jockey and their New Nightwear and Lounge collection you can now do it in style.
Their Women‘s Nightwear and Lounge collection takes inspiration from the, vibrancy of a seasonably stormy day in the heart of New York City. With bold colors ranging from rich reds, blue's and the always chic gray's and blacks.
Every piece comes in Lipstick Red, Canary Black, Tin Melage and Dark Iris, so you can get one in each color or just mix n match your mood. So if you are feeling flirty go for Lipstick Red and pair it with the Dark side of Gray to achieve the desire affect. Each piece is perfect for cooler or warmer weather.
Ditch the old t-shirt and sweatpants and swap it for the cute drawstring tappered sweatpants and pair it with a sexy tank top. It will do wonders for your “chilled out, I am sexy look”. Or if you are just too hot go for the Lounge shorts and the Everyday t-shirts it is saying enough without saying a word, especially if you are lounging with your #bae.
Now if you are a couple and like to look good as a pair, even when you are lounging. Kit him out with some of these cute but manly pieces from the Jockey Men's Night and Loungewear. Love the cute Bermuda shorts and the Welcome to Miami T-shirts.
I think a sneaky “sick day” is in store to lounge and cuddle, thanks to Jockey!!

So we are officially in Spring, although the weather is not playing along yet, we can look forward to, hopefully, some great summer weather. But while we are not there yet, and we are still working on our bikini bodies. HELLO!! Monochrome, one of the best styling tricks to hide those pesky areas that you are conscious of, while at the same time adding inches and making you appear leaner.
Monochrome is often associated with black or white but there are more colors that you can wear to create that elegant monochrome look. Here are my favorite 6 colors, that if chosen in the shade that compliments your skin tone, will carry you through spring and summer for all those cool monochrome looks.
Cool and tranquil the perfect color for your casual street style, as we all have a denim jacket, cutoff shorts, jeans, chambray shirts, and button-down skirts in our closets.

Green is great if you want to refresh your look. And as we are seeing a lot of the khaki safari trend this season. Pulling of the green monochrome look will be a breeze. Choose hues of green like khaki, hunter green, olive green, and forest green for a fresh chic look.
White, the classic summer color. Although most women find it challenging to wear because the all-white shade, as it is not very flaw flattering. The trick is to pick the right fabric and to make sure that it fits your silhouette and that the design flatters your shape. So if you do have a muffin top, pair a structured vest with a dress, as the lapels of outerwear slims down your shape and defines your waist.
Grey, not always a summer color, but definitely a good choice for a slimming monochromatic look. Just be sure that the color does not drown you out so add splashes of complementing color like blueberry blue, red or fuchsia.
Nude, depending on your skin tone this is a very flattering monochrome look. But like grey it can drown you, so make sure that you pick a shade that is in contrast with your skin tone.
