If you haven’t had a chance to check out this fantastic collection yet, you’re going to love it.  These enticing summer fashions are also available in my online shop:  Here are some more new must-have Ariella looks:  

This dishy top is guaranteed to turn heads. It features flirtatious cut-outs at the shoulders and fun flutter-cut short sleeves.  The halter style collar is made of attractive faux black leather. I also like the wide, swing hemline at the waist. It hides summer tummy bulge perfectly. Available in sultry, slimming black.

This pretty crocheted top is the perfect summer layer over your tops or dresses. It will give you a bit of extra warmth on breezy summer days while still allowing your skin to breathe.

All the colours of a summer garden at twilight can be found on this lovely sleeveless maxi dress. The background is black as night. Reds, pinks, golds and touches of blue pop out at you from its pretty floral print. The breathable fabric and spaghetti straps make it perfect for summer days and evenings when the temperature climbs above 27 degrees Celsius.

Fashion Dos and Don’ts for Summer

It can be hard to be stylish as the mercury rises during sizzling summer days.  Take heart, my dear fashionistas! With just a few simple rules, you can maintain your fashionable status even on the hottest days. Here’s a short (but important) list to help keep you looking your best all summer:

DON'T wear ultra-tight clothing in the summer. This includes bathing suits. The “battle of the bulge” is never more evident than when our clothing layers are at a minimum. Opt for white and pastel coloured clothing with ample breathing room. You’ll sweat less in loose clothing than in tight attire, trust me!

DO try a colour in your wardrobe you don’t usually wear. Even if you aren’t brave enough to wear a top or outfit in a new colour, try it in an accessory. Think sunglasses, purse, bracelet or scarf. Summer is time for adventure!

DON'T wear socks with your sandals. Yes, not even the little tennis anklets. Treat yourself to a pampering pedicure so you’ll want to show off those toes!  You can keep sweat and foot odor in check with sprays and powders.

DO purchase at least one funky summer necklace to liven up your wardrobe.  If your summer wardrobe is already very colourful, opt for a necklace with beads in a neutral colour like white, beige or cream.

DON'T carry a heavy, dark bag or purse in the summer. Opt for a lighter (both in weight and colour) handbag. A bottle of water should be the heaviest item in your summer bag.  It will help prevent you from becoming dehydrated while running errands in the heat.

DO come to Anne's on the Avenue and check out the latest designer fashions for summer! We have plenty of Ariella Co., Simon Chang, Frank Lyman and many more of your favourite Canadian designer fashions in stock.

So enjoy the summer thoroughly, fashionistas! And remember: Anne's on the Avenue has everything you need to spruce up your summer look. Our sensational new boutique location is in the East Pointe Plaza at 1695 Manning Road in Tecumseh. Or shop with us online at: Your fashion is our passion!
Don’t forget: the best style is confidence.

I am partial to this light and airy pairing because it’s a look you can dress up for the office, or dress down for the beach! The pretty tube top is a stylish retake of a 1960’s fashion craze with its subdued paisley print. Bali’s easy care cotton Capri pants in crisp white are a perfect complement to the top. You'll be ready for all summer can throw at you, casual or dressy, with these two breezy pieces in your wardrobe!

Sheer, funky brilliance on Simon Chang’s part is how I describe this delightful dress. What could be more breezy than chiffon? And with its beautiful butterfly wing print, this gorgeous summer dress looks as light and airy as it feels. Slip it on and you’ll want to find a fairy circle to dance in until the morning dew drops shimmer in the woods.

Nobody does high style in the summer heat better than Frank Lyman. He knows you need to look fabulous when the mercury rises. This lovely palm print tank and Capri pant with grommets are perfect examples. Both pieces are sophisticated yet designed to keep you cool and comfortable during the scorching days to come.
