Trends to watch
Dresses are hot this season with babydoll minis, voluminous short sleeves, floaty shifts and full skirts all making headlines. The good news for the more body-conscious is that the maxi dress is also making a comeback.
Citrus colours such as lemon yellow, coral and orange are going to be big, both in bold patterns and block colour.
Metallics, particularly silver, are one to watch. To incorporate metallics into your everyday wear, wear one attention piece such as a headband, scarf or tank top. Patent shoes, wallets and bags are also a great look as statement pieces.
Bags are just getting bigger and bigger this season with totes, satchels and shoulder bags big enough to fit your entire wardrobe in (well, nearly). Stash away your black bags for next autumn - oversized bags in white, tan and camel-coloured leather are the way to go this summer!
Shorts of all sizes, styles and lengths are a definite winner. Easy to mix and match with anything: check out JayJays in particular for some great prices on the cute denim variety.
Scarves will compliment most outfits and add a great touch of detail. Look for light, comfortable cotton or satin materials and choose a colour and pattern that will mesh well with the rest of your wardrobe.
Light denim wash jeans. Skinny leg and straight leg jeans are still the way to go. Invest in a pair of light grey or vintage blue jeans that will work well with flowing tops and laid back tees.
Sunglasses are a definate must have for the sunny days. While oversized sunnies are still very popular, the new emerging trend is the vintage wayfarer style.
Accessories can make or break an outfit. Prep up any outfit easily by adding a pair of earrings or layering some bracelets and bangles on one arm. For an up to date look mix silver and gold coloured pieces. Some hot pieces this season are wood bead bracelets, leather charm bracelets that wrap around the wrist several times and the woven black and gold Skye bracelet.
