Feminine Prints

Unapologetically feminine florals and tropical fauna prints have infiltrated all areas of our wardrobes this season. Whether traditional, painterly or abstract, they’re a sure fire way of injecting a little flirtiness into your look.

Leopard Revival

Animal print has returned with a vengeance this year. Designers forayed beyond classic leopard into interesting new colourways. And it looks like this trend isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

Block Colour

There is beauty in simplicity, too. From classic black to attention-seeking red and yellow, with the right silhouette, and a healthy summer tan, one-colour swimwear can be so striking.

Fall In Line

Stripes should be a mainstay for any girls holiday wardrobe, and this summer they’ve had a subtle and sophisticated make-over. Earn your fashion stripes by opting for smaller lines, and a more muted palette, or give a nod to nautical in more traditional blues and reds.
