Coral Is Heating Up Summer

I'm loving that coral has been popping up everywhere lately. After us having the longest winter ever here in Melbourne I can't wait to start wearing warmer colours. 

Rachel Roy included coral in some of her pieces for the 2010 Resort collection out earlier this year, it seems the colour has finally made it down here in time for our warmer months.

Most stores have some sort of coral coloured pieces for this season, so there's a lot of options for styles and prices.

Here's a few pieces currently in stores -

Sportsgirl Trifecta mini dress in coral $99.95

This dress has pockets at the front and a mid v back. I love when dresses come with surprise pockets, makes it a bit more interesting.

Forever New Abrianna frill racer back dress $79.95

 Valleygirl Zip front party dress with ruffle detailing $14.95

I like zip details on almost anything and this price is basically a steal.

Sportsgirl Ella's tee in coral $39.95


An option if you want to wear coral in a casual way. 

Bardot Frill playsuit $69.95

Blake Lively in Suno wide leg pants in summer coral from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection, for the first episode of season 4 of Gossip Girl, filmed in Paris.

Personally, this is how I would not wear coral. I like the colour but it's better suited for other pieces. Bright coral along with the widest leg pants I've seen since Rachel Zoe's makes them look a bit clownish. I would usually say that Blake Lively can look good in anything and she looks amazing but I find these a little unflattering. But hey, atleast she IS wearing pants. Maybe we should blame Gossip Girl though. I'm sure some people love these but I'm not feeling it.


  1. Indeed, I've been seeing heaps of people wearing coral lately. I prefer it either quite dark or very pale. Do you think the lady behind Blake is looking at her pants and thinking "??"

  2. haha yeah i think she is...and can you imagine how high the pants would be on her.


thankyou to everyone who takes time to read or comment.
I always appreciate the love! x
