Beat the heat and stay cool this summer with pastel hues reminiscent of yummy ice cream. From shades of pale lilac, baby blue and mellow yellow to mint green and strawberry pink. Slay this look by stacking saccharine colours from head to toe like a triple scoop gelato.
If you’re feeling adventurous then these exciting primary colours taken straight from the colour wheel are perfect for making a statement. Shades of tomato red and cobalt blue are paired with bright yellows and Barbie pinks, or if clashing isn’t your thing then go head-to-toe in one shade for an equally fab look.
This “Mad Men” era office staple is revived with sheer materials and bold embellishments, paired with sporty tops and ankle boots they add an updated 21st century edge. This is a trend made for way past your average 9-5.
Firstly, these are spillage friendly as you can literally wipe and go, secondly, their waterproof so no more feeling like a drowned rat when you get trapped in the rain. Other than that they offer us several opportunities to get creative with layering, thanks to the transparency.
Denim may be a fabric that will never go out of fashion, but that doesn’t stop it from evolving. This season, denim has gotten smarter with tailored silhouettes and luxe additions. Stick to one shade to really nail this polished denim trend.
Ruffle My Feather
Flaunt your femininity with faux-feather ruffles. These dresses let you sashay with a flair and make masculine silhouettes more feminine. Plus, just think of all those boomerang moments!
These leg-bearing classics remind us all why we love summer so much. Opt for a pair of athletic shorts and structured top for a mix-and-match vibe.
Trenches appeared on our runways with a twist this season, featuring metallic embroideries at Alexander McQueen and patchwork patterns at Valentino. Style your trench coat on a breezy day with boots and shades of beige to pull off the utilitarian look.
