    How to wear... sunset orange

     

     

     

     

     

     

    With summer now officially here it’s time to break out the sunset tones of orange, a favourite mood-enhancer here at Tluxe HQ especially on a day like today with the skies clouding over.

    A constant on the catwalks for next summer 2013 our top tip is to add tangerine as a punch of colour to lift a neutral outfit. You can do it with accessories, like Fendi’s bags for spring/summer 2013 (pictured above) but there’s nothing like a bolt of sartorial orange, such as our Pearl silk and organic cotton top, to add some 2012 now to your wardrobe.

    Another alternative is to let your trousers do the talking with our Sandy Lane harems. Team them with a neutral top and some simple, tan sandals and accessories.  Or if you love bold brights, try colour-blocking with a vibrant red shirt.

    If your style is more chic than street, we’re loving the way Giovanna Battaglia, editor of L'Uomo Vogue, tones down electric orange with a simple caramel silk scarf.

    Orange is the colour for summer dresses right now and going forward well into next summer. You can get yours today in super luxe silk and organic cotton, lovingly made and designed right here in Sydney by the Tluxe team. Here’s to summer. Enjoy!

    Today we’re feeling the love for our palm print, designed and printed right here in Sydney. A unique digital take on the trees that line many of our streets and local beaches here in Australia, when we think of palm trees we’re instantly transported to endless summer holidays spent lazing by the ocean and sipping cocktails as the sun goes down.

    That holiday feeling inspired by palm-tree lined promenades from La Croisette on the French Riveria to Beverley Hills and Waikiki has a long history, as you can see from our vintage postcard finds above.

    It also has a bright future with palms being the inspiration du jour for many of the prints gracing the spring/summer 2013 catwalks. To capture a little of that holiday spirit now and stay ahead of the fashion curve, dive into the Tluxe selection of palm print; silk T-shirts, dresses, shirts and super chic trousers. It's a sure fire way to instantly pep up your look and provide a hit of seaside glamour whether your heading to the office or hitting the pool.

     

    Inspire me... oceanic colours

      Continuing our celebration of colour, today we take a look at the cool oceanic tones that inspired us here at Tluxe HQ for summer 2012. The perfect daytime balance to the evening hues of warm sunset orange we featured last week, our emerald and lagoon shades of blue and green are inspired by the colours of the ocean sparkling against Sydney’s skyline on any given day of the week.

    Not only do oceanic tones make you feel calm and look cool it’s a very now palette worth investing in. Perusing the more directional looks on the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks, it’s no surprise that the ocean was a key inspiration for designers from London to New York. The Tluxe top tip? Wear it with an understated sparkle of metallic silver or bronze via a pair of flats strapped at the ankle, or show your fashion smarts by sporting next summer’s hot accessory now; a chunky, transparent cuff.

    High summer colour inspiration

       


      

     

     

     

    Today we're excited to announce that our new colours for high summer have just landed on the site! Inspired by the cobalt blue, gunmetal grey and flame orange tones of beachside sunsets, and, for those of you who prefer the tranquility of early morning, we’ve included some inspirational images of Bondi beach at sunrise, with thanks to photographer Eugene Tan.

    This summer here at Tluxe we've created our very own take on the classic white oversized shirt in cool, crisp and planet-friendly woven organic cotton. This stolen-from-your-boyfriend style is the perfect beach cover-up, great for throwing over a bikini while having the added benefit of protecting your skin from the harshness of the midday sun. 

    We’re also loving the clean, simple styling ideas for boyfriend shirts that we’ve been seeing via the street style shots from around the world over the last few weeks, pictured above. Update your wardrobe with a little 2012 now by picking up your own oversized white shirt from our online store today – but be quick, this is a classic that simply flies off the rails.
