KEY TREND – Sequins & Sparkle

Day or night, casual or dressed up, sequins and rhinestones elevate an outfit for true stand-out style. From all-over sequin dresses, head-to-toe sequin midis or splashes of stones and sequins on flowing maxis, a special occasion look that sparkles is certain to make you shine. And with this look too glamorous to reserve for evenings only, rhinestone-embellished necklines and sequin-showered tops brighten up a casual outfit and capture the sun’s brilliant light.

KEY LOOK – Shoulder Show

Warm weather always inspires skin-baring styles and a perfect way is to show off a glistening tan is with some shoulder show. There is a selection of summer dresses and tops, in a range of designs, to show a hint of the shoulder as well as ones which accentuate the feminine shoulder fully. As a most chic and elegant look, the one-shoulder design is edgy and retro at the same time while an off-the-shoulder top or dress style conveys romance and ease. Styles with cold-shoulder cut-outs or mock-neck and halter-neck looks with cut-in shoulders are a more modest approach to shoulder-baring style.
