Disclosure: Ad. The Patricia white slinky newspaper print high neck dress, Leah black “Public Figure” slogan print T-shirt, Mabel white “Champagne Is Always The Answer slogan T-shirt and Ivy black ribbed V-neck midi jumper dress are samples of my choice from Femme Luxe. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
Must-have Euro Chic updates for summer
Even when your style is classic, you need trendy updates for your wardrobe each season to not look old-fashioned or too conservative. They latter is only a do in corporate style. However, even in the corporate world, women in midlife should add at least one trendy piece to look up-to-date. For the post, I chose Euro Chic Style trendy items to update my summer wardrobe for work and play. Note that these pieces are also great additions for a business casual, American Classic, California Casual, Urban Style and Casual Style wardrobe.
I picked the midi Patricia newspaper print because of the new trendy interesting (look-at-me) print, two neutral color slogan tees as slogan is the trendy version of the graphic T-shirt this season, and a knit-jumper dress for going out in chilly evenings.
Like their samples I reviewed before, all pieces show great care with respect to the seams. No left-over loose threads that you often see with fast fashion. Well, Femme Luxe is actually slow fashion as their cuts are rooted in Euro Chic classic, but have a trendy twist. All pieces well solved my summer wardrobe update needs.
What do I like about these Femme Luxe clothes?
Inexpensive trendy newspaper print dress
I like that the sleek sheath style newspaper print dress has long sleeves. It’s perfect to cover the upper arms (aka bingo-wings) and to chop the sleeves to 3/4 lengths for style. The high-neck plays the sexiness of the dress down so you can wear it with a cardigan at the office and head after work to girls-night out by just leaving the cardigan in your car or knotting it around your waist (so stylish). The sheath has about 1 inch (2.5 cm) ease. I ordered a size UK size 6 (US size 2). When you like more ease, you might consider to go a size up. The dress is low maintenance as it doesn’t wrinkle and can be washed. The price is $14.99. Since the cut is classic, the dress can be worn also next summer. The long sleeves permit wearing it in three seasons. This means the cost-per-wear is fast below $1. Thumbs up.
Slogan Tees are a Do
I love that the black women’s slogan T-shirt doesn’t have side seams. Thus, no danger of the shirt to get this awkward twist like a Barber’s store sign. It is also very important to me that the slogans are not harming anyone.
Both tops are made from 100% cotton. They feel very soft on the skin. They are a great value for their price of $5.99 (white T-shirt) and $8.99 (black slogan shirt). Will you jump on the slogan t shirt trend?
A LBD in knit as a statement
Despite 24 hours of daylight for 84 days, summer nights can be chilly in Interior Alaska. Thus, a knit-jumper is a great wardrobe addition to enjoy a romantic dinner at the river or in the biergarten of a local brewery or a roadhouse. It is a great way to look sexy in an understated way and stay comfortably warm at the same time. Love it! The price of $18.99 is very cheap for a LBD.One is never over-dressed or under-dressed with a Little Black Dress – Karl Lagerfeld. #fashionqute #FemmeLuxeFinery Click To Tweet
Who will love these clothes?
All women of any age need a black and/or white graphic T-shirt for the weekend or for Casual Friday under a blazer or cardigan. Since this season slogans are it, these tees are inexpensive chic options of summer wardrobe Must-haves.
Every woman will benefit from a LBD. Even when you live in subtropical climate in this jumper works for your, even though it will be from early fall to early spring.
All women who love the black and white combination can make the newspaper paper dress their statement piece as a twist on this color pairing classic. When you love prints, but want to go beyond the usual floral this dress is your chance.
You can order these pieces online at Femme Luxe who are located in Manchester in the UK. Based on the items I ordered from them so far I really can recommend them to all my friends.
