The High-waisted Trouser 

Whether you’re out tasting the local cuisine at your mystery destination or breathing in the crisp morning air as you walk down the block, high-waisted trousers not only have the remarkable ability to sculpt the figure, but have an added advantage of being multi-functional.

The Floor-length Dress

In a multiple array of fabrics – from breezy chiffons for evening to muted cotton for warm sunny days by the beach – the floor-length dress is a must have breakaway essential. Dress it up with bold jewellery or channel mod-glamour with a varsity throwover.

Pretty Frocks

Bordering the line between evening and casualwear, the pretty frock finely fits many a social occasion. Providing us with the answer to all those unforeseen social engagements, their weightlessness also makes for easy packing.
