After taking stock of the latest runway trends, Lilye, personal shopper, blogger and friend of HiP Paris, shares some precious insight on how to navigate a few of this summer’s must-haves. We’re including an excerpt of her post below, but you can check out her entire rundown in French here.

1. A Maritime Hint

The time has come to move away from our favorite sailor shirt, but that doesn’t mean we have to lose the beloved pattern altogether. Dare to wear your stripes with a little subtlety: a  ribbon wrapped around your wrist, a turban in your hair, a hint of pattern peeking out of your Antonio Marras ensemble, or even a tastefully decorated purse will do the trick.

Hermes’ latest collection is also making me mad about navy. Don’t dismiss your staple navy blazer! Paired with a simple white t-shirt and a pair of jeans, it’s so very effortlessly chic.

2. A Powdered Dream

Nude, blushed and powdered shades are the new white this Summer, and the effect is positively chicissime in these head-to-toe looks. Though die-hard white fans will always have a place in the sun, Nude is number 1 this season.

3. A Dash of Military Spirit

Go rogue. The all-out soldier look is one option, but a simple military cap paired with some Jean-Paul Gaultier boots should be adequate camouflage for your urban jungle of choice.

4. A Frilly Breeze

This summer is also full of girly frills. Go Lolita glam with  flirty miniskirts, or boho-indie lover with long layered dresses.

This season is particularly feminine and sexy so you’ll also be seeing a lot of lace, fishnet and other delightfully see-through, gauzy materials.

Bon Shopping ! And if you’re looking for insight into integrating these trends into your warm-weather wardrobe, Lilye is here to help!
