The sun has been shining brightly (well for the most part anyway), blue skies have reappeared (let’s ignore the temperature) and peonies and sweet peas have started to bloom. Bojo announced that we will be able to sit indoors in pubs and restaurants soon and travel and holidays are on the horizon- hooray! Which means one thing……YOU NEED TO LOOK GREAT!
Renew your wardrobe by shopping small with Venezia Boutique’s Grecian inspired collection as Spring-Summer trends are ultra-feminine this year. We have brought in some amazing pieces from Greece and Europe and are super happy to be sharing them with you.
Our new holiday shop has one off kaftans handmade in Rhodes- no two kaftans are the same! The Venezia own brand is perfect for more of a city-chic look and sells out very quickly – we take orders for items that are sold out (so you should definitely get in touch with us if a piece is unavailable in your size) and our new Runaway label exudes beautiful boho Greek island style with floaty dresses for both the younger and more mature woman.
Key themes for Spring- Summer 2021 (get your fashion notepads out):
- Desert Colours- Khaki, Camel, Ecru are all MASSIVE this summer. Make sure you give yourself a nice golden glow with some bronzer or fake tan to compliment these colours. Venezia’s Barbados Dress, Indra Dress, Sandra or Mischa Maxi Dress are all easy ways to rock this look. The key here is that they are easy to wear pieces which you can wear with trainers or sandals and to coffee or your local restaurant.
- 70s Floral & Paisley Prints- Get your inner tree hugger out and rock the hippie trend that is running through the veins of the fashion world this season. You don’t need to be the most confident to work this look and if you don’t feel comfortable wearing bright colours, you can opt for a print in ecru or black and red. Our Venezia print picks are the Stevie blouse, the Hartley dress or blouse or the Yasmine dress or blouse. Pair the Stevie blouse with a beautiful white trouser or skirt such as our Bella mini skirt.
- Blue- Like the seas of the Aegean where I grew up blue, blue, blue is all the rage this year. Our gorgeous Remy maxi dress is bohemian Grecian style at its best whilst our Meadow twin set (crop top and A- line skirt) is great for the younger women amongst you or the body confident.
- Black- You cannot go wrong with black. Pair it with gold accessories for the ultimate Mediterranean Goddess look. Our Valeria swing dress is great for a fun off beat look whilst our Ellicia dress oozes more of a city tailored style. Either way black will never go out of fashion so you will wear these pieces for year to come!
NEW HOLIDAY SHOP- ONE OFF PIECES FROM RHODES!
This is just so exciting – our lovely Greek tailor Alexandros in Rhodes has sent us just 15 Kaftans – every single one is different. They are one off pieces and will look great both on holiday or on a hot day in Tring or Berko! They are all fabulous and come in both maxi and shorter styles and are one size. We have named them after our favourite islands in Greece where I have family, friends and beautiful memories- why not?! Before he starts work, Alexandros sits outside his atelier in the old town of Rhodes, sips his Greek coffee and draws inspiration for his kaftans from his beautiful surroundings- Alexandros is very hard to get hold of as he also has a two hour sleep every afternoon!
Venezia Boutique also offers a styling service which is redeemable against your purchases with us. So if you need a bit of help, get in touch!
Have a super Spring-Summer – things are looking up!
