Bon Voyage!

www.stilettosandsubstance.comKeeping a creative mind-set when it comes to your look can help you create unique outfits that tell a story. This ladylike take on summer day dressing evokes the glamour of old Hollywood starlets and was inspired by scenes of sailors bidding adieu to their impeccably dressed paramours at the port.

The elegant, loose-fitting cream dress is made of a lightweight material that is perfect for a summer day and features a subtle ruffle detailing on the neckline. The belted waist on the dress adds definition and creates a feminine silhouette, while the longer sleeves and below the knee length keep things demure and sophisticated. Chic accessorizing is all about keeping it simple with statement pieces that tie the look together. Here, a maroon hat acts as the focal accessory and gives another glamorous vintage aspect to the outfit. The complimentary bangles add a contemporary feel and accessorize the look without overwhelming it.

Low heels are a comfortable footwear option for glamorous daytime dressing. These navy blue suede shoes continue the nautical colour palette and also add colour contrast. To finish things off, dark red lips compliment the deep tones in the look and add a glamorous touch.
