The trends that are deemed hot for the season include cut out dresses, denim, leather, wearing underwear as outerwear, pastels, all white, ruffles, digital prints and lace.
I have been on Vogue identifying certain trends that stand out for me. Here's what I have compiled.
STATEMENT NECKLACES are always hot, they can transform ANY outfit and are guaranteed showstoppers! Paul Smith opted for maximum impact whilst Dolce & Gabbana opted for a 'goddess gypsy' look.
ROMANTIC always ensures femininity and is perfect for long summer nights. Silk, chiffon and floral prints are key. Emilio Pucci didn't disappoint with fabulous prints and floaty dresses. TIP - Why not toughen up your outfit with a belt as demonstrated by Amanda Wakely.
ROCHAS had beautiful intricate belts made with flowers. DIY - Why not take your favourite waist belt and add a massive flower headband or broach to create your own to suit you.
TRIBAL is effortlessly cool, I love bold prints and Marc by Marc Jacobs got it spot on. Topshop usually have great prints in the summer, but they sell out quick. DIY - Why not buy your own printed fabric and create a simple top that nobody else has.
HEAD SCARVES are a quick way to update your outfit especially if you are having a bad hair day. Keeping your outfit simple and wearing a bright scarf as demonstrated by Oscar De La Renta is sure to be an eye opener and great for hijab wearers. You can also roll scarves up in pretty knots to create a more interesting hair style as demonstrated by Marni.
SHOES, you can NEVER have too many! Wedges give height, great posture and are comfortable, Bottega Veneta had a gorgeous pair. Burberry and Vera Wang opted for ankle tie platforms which are equally as gorgeous. DIY - Why not personalise a pair of your shoes by attaching or threading a beaded necklace or chain to the strap inspired by Lanvin.
MY ADVICE: Don't be a follower, be a leader. Interpret trends to suit your body shape, complexion and age. Be original!
