It’s the latest Tik-Tok trend and features a feeling rather than rigid, equation dressing. Tomato Girl step into the chatroom.
The inspiration for summer fashions’ it-trend? Mediterranean summers; sipping chilled vino; freckled sun-kissed skin; easy, breezy thoughts – an evocative montage of the best scenes of a Euro summer vacay, even if you haven’t booked a trip to Italy.
Don’t think you have to go full on tomato-print either, the code is more effortless. At its core – simple dressing: think printed corset and jeans, maxi skirt and crop top, or a simple white mini-dress accented by a head scarf tied like a 1950s starlet.
Follow these simple guidelines:
Colour Palette: White, Floral, Gingham, warm green and brown tones, gold, neutrals and of course, a burst of red.
Fabric: Linen, Cotton, Silk
Accessories: Wicker purse, silk scarf, retro sneaks, Mary Janes, sandals
