ColoursEmerald green, yellow, bold orange and pink, lime green, neutrals and cobalt blue.

Bold Prints – Get surreal in geometric, psychedelic, digital and art nouveaux prints to look wild and jazzy.

DenimComes alive in brights of sunset orange, red, emerald green and cobalt blue.  Team with a striped blazer or tee.

White on White – A go to look that is fresh for a modern minimalist look on hot summer days.

LeatherA staple with sporty t-shirts, cross-over jackets and body-hugging trousers in soft neutrals and perennial black.  Leather detailing is also sharp with cut outs and panels.

Sports luxeSporty separates including slouchy tees, drawstring waists, and softy tailored jackets. Dresses and tops have rounded dropped shoulders in fresh new scuba fabrics. 

Mini Trends

PeplumsMake the most of a neat waist in this favourite.   Look fashion forward with skinny pants or a pencil skirt.

BohemianA 70’s vibe looks new with free spirited maxi skirts and dresses in digital folksy prints.

LeopardLeopard prints are popular in neutrals and pastel hued tones in tops and dresses.

SpotsPerfect polkas dots always look smart or try the new unevenly spaced, spots.  Spots look rather arty when imperfectly finished or raised in texture by using applique or beading.
