Every Friday in our column “Style Selec’tings” Kingstonstyle’s Fashion Editor, E. Hansen-McKnight, scours the web to give you the week’s best in clothing and accessories from web-savvy Jamaican stores and designers.
Today on Style Selec’tings we prepare for the weekend with a little hope. While the weather forecast predicts a gloomy weekend of rain, we’re predicting a sunny weekend in our closets. We checked in with some of our favourite local retailers to get us excited for future summer weekends of sun and picked the looks we’ll be ready to rock once the clouds break. Plus, if you’re feeling especially stir crazy, head over to the Fabulous Findz Sip N’ Shop this Saturday at Devon House for a little shopping fun and fresh beverages.
1.) Yahdie Conscious red mesh two-piece swimsuit. I’m starting to sound a little repetitive, I know, but mesh is all the range for summer and this mesh two-piece from Yahdie Conscious, is some red hot sexiness. Cop it at Style Savvy at the 7th Avenue Plaza.
2.) Style Savvy’s gingham overalls. Gingham has long been a summer favourite, and in the form of overalls, it has an added coolness to it. You’ve got to love how Erica from Style Savvy sported it with a striped crop top or if you’re headed to the beach, wear it over your monochromatic swimsuit.
3.) The Some Like it Vintage Baywatch swimsuit. Kingstonstyle has been riding hard for vintage style for a while and that’s why we love what the girls over at Some Like it Vintage are serving up, especially the Baywatch swimsuit, which is one of their most popular pieces.
4.) The Alter Ego lace crop top in turquoise. I just love this entire ensemble with the flower crown, stacks of bracelets and the electric colours of the lace. Every girl needs a little sheer lace in her life. Peep it at Alter Ego (where they’re having a 50% off sale through Saturday.)
5.) Rebel Swim Collection from Tarik & Tif. This local swimwear label has been making a comeback as late and they got sexy on lock. Peep the Tarik & Tif Rebel Collection for the flirtatious sheer cutaway swimsuits in black and white.
