July and August is Whim Biscuit's Beauty Season, and to celebrate the delights of these glorious sunny months- what better than a quick look at how to be fashion forward this summer.
Us whimsical types like our style to be original, classic, and ever so slightly out of the ordinary...but thats not to say that we shouldn't embrace the trends while they are out, especially if they are little bit lovely.
For example, who could not adore these fashion forward designs in the seasons hottest colours? Fall in love with the forties with simple elegant tea dresses, and take day time chic to the next level in this stylish blouse/shirt combination. (1)Papaya silk dress, 2) Alice+Olivia's white cotton and stone linen blend dress)
Or create a statement look with this taupe jersey dress from Splendid- taupe being this summers newest trend setting shade. Its easy to go from day to evening with a simple mix of basic accessories, from belts to shades, and of course... a fabulous make up selection.
