Sensuality: Your New Dress Code
So we were thinking about this summer's best selling Emerson Fry caftans and soft flowing pieces from Brazeau Tricot and what the connection might be behind our craving for this flowing, exotic style and our need for a big dose of romantic self care. We're talking about clothing that heightens our senses - invites a certain romanticism layered with comfort and elegance.
We're talking about sensuality. We turn to women of SAKARA.com for a little insight...
SENSUALITY LIVES IN THE SLOWNESS, IN THE INNER LISTENING. WE GENERALLY THINK OF THE BODY AS SOMETHING TO PUSH, TO SHAPE, TO OVERCOME, RATHER THAN SOMETHING WE LISTEN TO.
"We need to embrace the idea of creating sensuality with and for ourselves. After all, it is a form of pleasure, like savoring a great meal, listening to a favorite song, or soaking in the sun on an exotic beach. It’s completely normal and necessary.
When we start to recognize sensuality for what it truly is—a powerful life force within us all—we can harness it to create a deeper connection to ourselves, to others, and as a portal to greater creativity and confidence. Our wish is to rediscover and heighten the connection to our sensual selves." (sakara.com)

STEP 1: Choose a hero piece and build your stack around it.
STEP 2: Pick a theme. Are you going boho, sophisticated, subtle? Silver or gold?
STEP 3: Get a couple of pre-layered pieces. It's always good to include a couple of bracelets that are the same to add some uniformity.
STEP 4: Dare to mix. We prefer to stick to either silver or gold and then throw in a bit of tassel or embroidery. The idea is to mix metals, textures, shapes and hues.
