Style Spotlight: Soft Romance

This summer it’s all about flowy and airy fabrics draped or cut to create feminine silhouettes in summer neutrals like blush and faded pink. The overall goal is to look effortless, soft, and very, very feminine. Seek out girly details like ruffles, flounces, thin pleats and bell sleeves (think Greek Goddess meets 90s slip dress meets 70s Flower Child) and channel your inner romantic. Check out our video to see how our summer ‘Girl In Focus’ Kathryn Senkow wears this look.

Perfect for: Cannes Gala Screening

"The instant I put on this dress from H&M, I imagined it on the red carpet at a Cannes Gala screening. The soft, feminine lace would stand out from high glitter and glam. Plus the open back adds tons of drama." - Kathryn

Perfect for: Attending the VSO

"This dress is all romance! From the flowy fabric to the blush colour, halter neckline and pleats. And so comfortable! It's true that when a woman feels comfortable in an outfit, her confidence shines through. Drop earrings from H&M added the perfect highlight of colour. This would be a great choice for an evening performance at the VSO." - Kathryn
