DRESS-ing For Summer
Coco and Cyd's philosophy began with the belief that fashion should always be effortless; we have not deviated from our core principles since we have started. From now, to the next couple of months, warm weather will be here. In this blog, we will show you how you can be comfortable and chic simultaneously during the summer months.
In Feb and March, while most of us are still stuck in winter mode, we watch the runway shows, always looking for those wonderful details that separate one fashion house from another. We want to run out and buy those Spring trends, (pleats, metallic, sporty couture) in April and May but before you know it, the summer is just around the corner. Leather skirts, peplums and glitter tops no longer sounds as appealing and suitable for the weather. “In warm weather, clothes should be simple and right to the point. You want to look beautiful without looking fussy" (a quote by Carolina Herrera). The idea of wearing high-waisted pants with ruffle tops seems like too much effort when temperatures reach 98 degrees and humidity can exceed 100. But, find the perfect, floral, summer dress, and all eyes will stop right there. Dresses can go with flats or heels, and work with day or night.
A busy woman's ideal summer uniform is a timeless and easy dress. That dress could be a print dress from MSGM or a minimal piece from Calvin Klein. A great dress makes a women feel special, feminine and effortlessly beautiful.
Jane Pendry, founder of the Paris-based dress label Dovima, is another designer who makes deceptively easy pieces. "If you find the dress that fits you in the right places, you feel like it's fixing your silhouette," said Ms. Pendry who worked for the designer Yves Saint Laurent. However, Dovima and Yves Saint Laurent are high-end labels; ideally one can amass a wardrobe of dresses without breaking the budget. For instance, you can find excellent, reasonably priced options from labels like Zara.
Coco & Cyd believes that a woman’s outfit should provide added confidence, comfort, and ease. Dresses are a beautiful way to transition into the warmer months, as well as provide a woman with the outward power and assurance to take on the world.

Quote to take with you for the week:
“Elegance is a glowing inner peace. Grace is an ability to give as well as to receive and be thankful. Mystery is a hidden laugh always ready to surface! Glamour only radiates if there is a sublime courage & bravery within: glamour is like the moon; it only shines because the sun is there.”
