Because we are big on good quality clothing that transcend trends, Here’s our scope on what’s really hot right now that you can wear even much later.
1. Statement blouses and relaxed tailoring
Statement tops with emphasis on exaggerated sleeves and relaxed tailoring are the rage, and they will definitely take you from this season into next – look for pieces with frills and ruffles, unusual proportions and sleeves, and flattering voluminous proportions to maximise your style credentials.

We love this trend for how universally flattering it is! No matter your body type there is an off shoulder style out there that would suit you, guaranteed. Look out for this trend in a cropped style with a matching set and you will be spot on.

Whether tailored and full length with fluid fabric or cropped flared, the most fashionable pant stride you need now is ‘Wide’. Pair with a smart blouse and block heels and your style game will be ‘up there’ for work or play.
