Bid farewell to your Little Black Dress – summer’s trends are all about bold-as-you-like brights and billowing silhouettes

Feeling Fuchsia

Suit, top, earrings and ring, all Versace; shoes, stylist’s own

Hot pink hues stormed the Spring/ Summer 2022 catwalks with Valentino, Molly Goddard and Dior all embracing their feminine side. Versace showcased the sizzling shade with a masterclass in summer suiting.

Easy Breezy

Dress, Valentino; earrings, Miu Miu

Timeless, easy-to-wear options make summer dressing a breeze. Look to linens, cotton and silk to conquer scorching temperatures in style.

A Blaze(r) Of Glory

Jacket, shirt, earring and ring, all Dior

Spending summer abroad? A double-breasted blazer is essential for cool evenings. Maria Grazia Chiuri debuted sixties-inspired suiting for Dior SS22, combining playfulness with practicality.

Larger Than Life

Top, Fendi; earrings, Miu Miu

The pandemic pushed us toward all things oversized and accessories aren’t exempt. Born from the Zoom era, larger-than-life accessories are going nowhere fast this summer.

No Frills

Dress, Roksanda; earrings, Miu Miu; shoes, Jimmy Choo

Look no further than statement sleeves to add drama to daytime dressing; elevate your summer capsule with voluminous silhouettes that are guaranteed to turn heads.

Coat Tales

Coat, Max Mara

While rubber-coated outerwear may not scream summer in the Middle East, Max Mara’s impeccable tailoring in mood-boosting colours has stolen our hearts and wardrobe space, just in time for your European city break.

Ray Of Sunshine

Dress, Prada; earrings, Miu Miu

Colourful choices aren’t just reserved for day. Elegant eveningwear — made fierce with corsetry boning and waist-cinching belts — are equally appropriate for a night painting the town red (or, in this case, yellow).

Pearls Of Wisdom

Dress, top and earrings, all Chanel

Add pearls to the list of trends making a comeback for 2022. Whether by way of accessories or embellishments, incorporate grandmother’s favourite for an instant dose of elegance.

Red Haute

Dress, necklace and bracelets, all Saint Laurent

Say goodbye to winter neutrals and subdued hues: red is the breakout star of the season. Captivating, powerful and romantic, throw masculinity into the mix with structured shoulders.
