1. All About Laces

Your summer wardrobe is not complete without a lacy piece. This classic pretty fabric is getting a lot of love from fashion lovers right now. It’s the right piece to give your wardrobe that subtle sexy flare. This summer’s lace trend goes beyond the traditional white lace. Spice-up your summer look in trending summer colours of coral, mustard, or cobalt.

2. Culottes

Culottes are proving to be summer’s hottest pants style, these cropped baggy cuts are still going strong this summer.  Create a stylish balance by keeping the top slim or tailored. Make it work appropriate by pairing with tailored blazers, smart button-downs shirts and pumps.



3. Off Shoulders

This trendy style flatters almost all shapes and allows us to indulge a bit of our bohemian side while showing off toned shoulders.

5. Crops

This belly-baring trend has taken its place as one of the summers must have. If you are sceptical about baring your midriff, then play it safe by pairing with high-waisted bottoms, that way you reveal just a peek of skin and still keep it classy. Alternatively, you can opt for one with an overlay, or pair with a tank underneath.

7.The Romper

A traditional summer staple, this season’s romper goes beyond the casual piece it is known to be. Trade in your cocktail dress for a dressy romper with interesting details for a change.

8.Matching Sets

This sleek and sophisticated trend can surprisingly serve as an alternative for suits if the right pieces are chosen. Wearing matching pieces was previously seen as a lack of creativity, but this summer, wearing matching sets appears to be the ‘It Girt’ Look.

Cutouts in dresses, tops or jumpsuits are great because they add just a bit of jazz to an otherwise simple silhouette.
