Spring/Summer Trends 2014

Let the Summer shopping season begin!

The next 3 weeks are dedicated to getting you on track with the latest trends for the summer season ahead.

Let’s go Dotty – Polka dots are going to be everywhere this season and not just in the traditional black and white combination. A particular favourite of mine is red and white- it is fresh, bright and summery. There will be other colour combinations as well with a whole variety of polka dot sizes from small to bold. If it all sounds like too many dots for your liking then choose a piece with a polka dot border trim or contrast fabric panel.

Personal StylistHot tip- If you are going to go for a black and white polka dot piece then make it really pop with a bright block colour scarf, bag, jacket or cardigan in red, acid yellow or emerald green.

1950’s Silhouette

Think fitted tops or bodice and full gathered skirts. This is the hot new skirt shape for the season, it is particularly good for bottom heavy figures who have a slim upper half and waist but a chunkier bottom half as the skirt will hide it allJ Onlookers assume the bottom hidden half is as slim as the top half. Not a flattering shape for big busts, undefined waists and those with short bodies.

Pop Art Graphic Prints.

I sported this in the 80’s. The look is a 5 year old let loose on a white piece of fabric and a full pack of neon felt tip pens. Go easy on this buy one item only if you like it, my opinion is that this is a one hit wonder, well for the next 30 years at least….let’s hope.
