BEACH PERFECT: 3 WAYS TO GET YOUR SUMMER BLING ON
You’ve booked a fabulous private villa, now to add a dash of dazzle with these stunning pieces.
When you live in a city where it’s summer all year long, it may come as a bit of a surprise that, somehow, you find yourself day-dreaming frequently of a getaway to get some (more) sun — under a different sky, Balinese, Maldivian or Mediterranean.
We are smack in the middle of the official summer, which means our sun is less fun than ever. Yep, you know what on our mind: Off goes those ruffled Self-Portrait collars and oversized sleeves, off goes the air-conditioner, and off we go running from this swelter to our dream private pool villa.
That’s right, it’s goodbye to our one-season island, and hello, Four Seasons. But not without our resort-chic outfits, sunscreen, and a dash of dazzle. Here are three ways you can shine bright under the *insert your island of choice* sun.
Miranda Priestly may hiss at the “groundbreaking” (sense the sarcasm) idea of wearing florals for Spring/Summer, but surely even the devil herself will find it hard to say “no” if it had some serious diamonds on it. This fun, conversation piece with a brilliant pink diamond at the heart of it may be the perfect accoutrement for a summer soirée. Wear it on your index finger to up the cool factor.
When it comes to a chic summer sojourn by the pool/beach, showing off your décolletage is de rigueur, and a little embellishment can make a big difference. What do we have in mind? A medallion-like pendant with a head-turning pink padparadscha centre stone. Okay, maybe not so “little”. But definitely beach perfect.
Finally, let’s get one thing straight: When we say we are “going to the beach”, what we really mean to say is, we are going to locate the perfect spot under the perfect tree, where there’s an endless supply of salty sea breeze and sweet coconut water, and we can spend the next three hours finally getting to the end of Gone Girl. We have no ambition of diving into the sea and riding the wave, nope. That clarified, here’s our final tip to getting your summer bling on: Just bling it. Layer a few simple diamond tennis bracelets on one arm, and casually throw on a tsavorite ring on the other hand to add a splash of colour to match your tropical surrounds as you get to the bottom of Amy Dunne’s disappearance.
