GOLDEN SUMMER TREND
Don’t you just love that Summer is approaching? I thought I would share this look with you all as well as the beautiful From Turkey with Love pieces that completed my look.
I decided to showcase two of my ultimate favorite Strada Chic items because 1-A-line skirts are my life right now and 2- comfort is key. With Summer slowly approaching, I find myself slowly transgressing into wearing lighter and ‘earthier’ colours instead of opting for brighter colours which we all usually do this time of year. As a stylist I’ve discovered that it’s best to opt neutral-colour items as it’s easier to pair with other pieces as opposed to bright colours. It’s much more versatile & you can mix it up with other outfits in your wardrobe and in the long run save money.
Lately I have a fascination with pairing same-coloured items this summer, it allows us to accentuate other elements of our daily outfit like accessories which adds that sense of femininity which can complete any look.
Down to the accessory game: I decided to pair the From Turkey with Love Hamsa hand bracelet and necklace from their recent Gold collection which adds a effortlessly bold yet chic and delicate look to any outfit.
I chose the Hamsa hand not only due to it being an internationally popular piece that has been trending all over Europe & the USA at the moment but solely due to its historical & symbolic meaning that has been passed down through the centuries.
HISTORY BEHIND THE HAMSA HAND: For over 50 000 years the Hamsa hand also know as Fatima’s hand has been a prominent symbol in Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Despite the difference it cultures it represents the same meaning no matter where the story is told. It has been known throughout time to invite blessings and success into to the lives of the possessor as well as protect them from negative energies & pure malice which we are frequently faced with in society in the city today.
If you’re not really someone that likes flashy jewellery, then these pieces are perfectly suited for you as it’s subtle in its beauty and every piece designed carries an intriguing story behind it. It’s definitely not understated where much like myself, I am humble but I can also command attention when the occasion arises. I would say that the ultimate golden trend this season are these Hamsa Hand pieces.
Until next time…
