Phuket Lifestyle: Go with the flow



PHUKET: One of the many perks of dressing in a sheer fabric, like silk chiffon, is the versatility of the material.

This free-flowing style is destined to become a staple for every fashion-forward female in Phuket this year, as it can be dressed up or down depending on your wants and taste. Don a short version as a cover-up at the beach, wear it as a perfect sun dress while lunching with the girls or opt for a longer version to catch the breeze perfectly during a classy occasion. The look is luxurious, but never rigid perfect for island life.

The lightweight, airy fabrics keep you cool without having to bare it all and are truly the essence of the look’s versatility. The sheerness of this trend works with your body and adds extra allure. These slinky fabrics drape beautifully over the female form, highlighting your curves while gently smoothing over any insecurities. The flowing style is flattering for any figure and leaves much to the imagination.

These elegant frocks also make shopping a cinch. The instant likability means less time spent hunting through the racks and more time looking and feeling fabulous. Don’t be afraid of sleeves or long hemlines anymore. This breathable material makes multiple silhouettes possible, even in the tropics. The style looks great paired with sequins and heels, layered with strands of beads or simply left on its own.

Go with classic black for a formal night on the town or a pretty floral shade to brighten up any afternoon. No matter the occasion or temperature, these gorgeous garments will make you feel as comfortable as you look.

Go against the grain with a chunky necklace or eclectic belt to contrast the soft lines, or play upon the feminine frills with fresh flowers in an up-do. These dresses are the perfect canvas for a bold piece of jewelry, fun hat or statement handbag. This trend is a must-have at any age and will do wonders for any wardrobe.
