Summer is an explosion of design and patterns and just about anything goes; from small to large florals and geometrics, to all types of animal prints thrown into the pot and mix.

'What I am Wearing' Summer 2019 Edition - a Patterned Summer from Off The Rails Fashionista

This fabulous jumpsuit from Desray is incredibly versatile and can be worn with the self-tie belt or one of your own, creating a blouson effect. What I love about jumpsuits is how comfortable they are and this one is no exception; it fits beautifully on the body and flatters all the right areas. I’ve teamed a genuine pair of metallic gold leather Fran slip on shoes from Julz Shoes and matching gold metallic leather handbag, also from Julz Shoes, to this look. (The shoes and bag are also available to buy from my online store). The gold acts as a neutral against the colourful pattern of the jumpsuit.

You can easily pair this look with a classic denim jacket from Poetry if there’s a slight chill in the air. To accessorise I’ve chosen a gorgeous pair of earrings from Jenni Twigg with green beading detail to pick up on the green in the jumpsuit. Lastly, don’t forget to add a stylish pair of sunglasses from Select Sunglasses and you’re “A for away”.

This stunning detailed printed shirt dress from Urban Huntress can be dressed down with sneakers or styled up with a pair of heels. I just love the combination of the yellow and orange pattern with the contrast of the black; it’s bold and beautiful.

Again, you can wear a self-tie belt or your own belt to make it into your own style. The shirt dress is a staple for summer and very versatile as it can be worn on its own as a dress, or over a pair of your favourite pants. I’ve teamed this beauty with a gorgeous leather handbag from Julz Shoes and a chunky pair of floral earrings from Poetry.
