Set For Summer

A pretty pastel palette has us screaming out for a tequila sunrise at sunset this Summer!

Yellow and lavender silks, sky blue swimsuits and bright whites are key trends for the season.

You will notice the return of the puffy balloon sleeve, ruffles and lace making us feel feminine and fabulous. Asymmetric design is a feature and a statement – wear the trend in swimsuits, dresses, skirts and jumpsuits. In fact, combine the asymmetrical and pastel and you’ve got yourself an A-plus in Summer dressing know-how. Vegan accessories continue to dominate the popularity stakes with high end designer labels seeking out alternative fabrics and practices to embrace the swing towards ethical fashion.

For the gents we are seeing print and stripes and tropical delights. Vertical stripes, checks and florals in a short sleeve shirt ticks all the boxes.

Colour me happy – Summer looks bright!
