Summer happens every year, but that doesn’t stop me feeling unprepared and resentful every time the days start getting warmer. This year, it’s happening earlier than usual – mid-October, and it’s already 33 degrees (that’s 91.4 for those on the Fahrenheit system). There are reports in the paper that it’s going to be another hottest summer ever.
An impeccable solution: brushed silk (the kind that doesn’t reflect light) cut into a graceful, ankle-length skirt; a semi sheer tank (also silk); one standout accessory. For me, a hank of horsehair on an oxidised chain is the right kind of talisman to ward off this all-too-clement weather.
