Beach Looks For Summer 2018

Summer is just around the corner and as the weather heats up, so too should your wardrobe. After all, there’s no better time to invest in your summer wardrobe staples than right now. So if you want to truly make a lasting impression on your holidays then look no further.

At Dolci Follie, we understand how important it is to feel comfortable yet striking when you hit the beach. Which is why the right swimwear is vital to give you a sense of confidence as you step onto those golden sands for the very first time. No matter if you’re simply lounging around sunbathing all day, playing a round of beach volleyball or sipping a well-deserved Mojito; helping you feel like the best version of you is what Dolci is all about.

So, with that in mind, here are a few of our favourite summer looks to help add a dash of inspiration to your shopping experience.

The Perfect One Piece

If swimsuits are usually your go-to beach attire, then look no further than Asceno’s latest collection. With an emphasis on quality and vibrant design, what is truly a stand-out feature of the Asceno brand is the emphasis on contemporary and complementary silhouettes. So, whether you are enjoying a little urban sun or in a much more exotic locale (lucky you!), you simply can’t go wrong with this brand.

The Neutral Bold Stripe Classic One Piece, in particular, is an understated but stylish choice. With neutral shades and pleasant colours, as well as comfortable adjustable straps, this swimsuit is perfect for those who are looking for a stylish costume to flatter their shape. The new double-lined, textured, fabric also gives you a little bit of extra support if you feel it is needed. This soon-to-be-a-classic is also available as a two piece if you’re looking for something more contemporary.

Bikini Babe

Now, we know that not everyone is a swimsuit lover. If you favour bikinis, then there’s also plenty more to choose from. Parah’s range of chic Italian inspired designs is the perfect choice if you are looking for something just a little bit special. The particularly luxurious Marrakech Triangle Bikini could be your new favourite summer wardrobe addition.

With its beaded detail on the bottoms and the gold lines on the top so reminiscent of golden waves this is a bikini that makes you feel like you are on holiday every time you wear it, even when you’re not! Made with the lure of the Mediterranean in mind, you can almost believe you have uncovered a unique treasure of the region in this bikini.

A Little Cover Up

Lastly, but certainly not one bit least, we have a gorgeous collection of kimonos and kaftans for those long summer evenings lounging on the beach or enjoying a nice glass of wine and extremely pleasant company at the bar. For this, we suggest our unique and vibrant Blue Tie Dye Short Kaftan. Not only is it ideal for taking the edge off of that summer breeze, but it also provides you complete protection from the sun.

Stylish Spring Colours To Bring The Sunshine

We all know that every now and again it’s a good idea to brighten up our wardrobes and update it a little. After all, not everyone will know we’re rocking the same style from many seasons ago even in 2018, but deep down you will and that’s all that matters. Better relieve yourself of the guilty conscience hanging over your lingerie drawer now than continuing to regret it later.

So, with that thought driving you on, don’t be afraid to delve into our collection of fresh and exciting spring favourites for this SS18.

Dress Light

Spring this year is all about light neutrals and delicate pastel colours with soft textures. Lace and silk are at the forefront this season, creating a classically elegant look with a contemporary twist. Celebrate as subtlety leads the way with some of our beautiful designs specially selected for this spring.

Stay light and breezy in a boudoir ball gown like this Loveday London piece. Intricate details bring this Zerena Boudoir Gown to life, with exquisite lace features in a gorgeous reddish colour that accentuates multiple skin tones. Not just for the bedroom, this gown works perfectly paired with your favourite summer heels; making it ready for work or play whenever you are. After all, nothing says spring like a long flowing gown adorned with flowers!

Every flawless spring dress needs some sultry underwear for underneath. So, why not pair this sweet dress with something a little bit naughty? Something for you to know and your partner to find out about later. If you need inspiration, look no further than Bordelle’s Red Harness Thong. The perfect spring surprise!

The Perfect Playsuits

For another element to your collection, is the ideal fit for anybody looking for a unique piece this spring. Bodysuits and playsuits are always firm favourites, famous for their stylish look but with a comfortable fit – a must-have for this year. This Mimi Holliday ‘Beau Daquiri’ body is a playful look for this spring. Featuring bold embroidered love heart patterns contrasting the fine mesh material on the body. This body has been tailored to flatter the curves for every figure, creating an enviable silhouette.

Bikini Ready

Lastly, created in anticipation for those long summer nights, the Fleur Of England Dusty Pink Triangle Bikini is a vacation must-have. A sweet yet flirtatious piece, including light padding for comfort and support on the beach. The soft colour combination with strap detailing make this bikini truly unique and a sure winner your friend’s will approve instantly.

Keeping it simple and sweet, with a little bit of naughtiness hidden underneath, is the key to this year’s spring fashion. Floral details paired with light pinks and beige materials come together to help create a spring look to remember. The pieces in this delicate trend can also be teamed with bolder, brighter colours to add another dimension to your look.

Gandys Flips Flops Arrive at Dolci Follie

Gandys glitter flip flops

When we first heard about Gandys flip flops, we immediately fell in love with the heartbreaking but inspiring story behind the company, and the uplifting ethos of the brand.

Gandys white leopard flip flops

The company was founded by two brothers, Rob and Paul, after coming up with the idea at a music festival. The brothers wanted to create something unique and driven by their personal passion after the tragic loss of their parents in the Boxing Day Tsunami whilst the family was travelling.

The pair tied in their “orphans for orphans” mission, which supports children in need of basic essentials such as nutrition, shelter and education, has already started to make an impact by funding children’s homes in India and Sri Lanka and the vision is to open them all around the world. With 10% of profits from every flip flop going towards the “Orphans for Orphans” mission, you can purchase with purpose whilst freeing your feet.

After starting in their small bedroom in Brixton, the company has captured many hearts with its inspiring story, and continues to grow.

Not only do we love the spirit of the brand, we also love the fun designs of the fantastic flip flops! For the wild at heart there’s the Leopard Print style, or for those looking for shimmer and shine and in the sun, there’s a gorgeous glittery range in pink, green, white and black!
