The Sports Luxe /Athletic trend is still hot! Take on this trend for summer, the athletic trend as seen on the runways of Gucci and Chanel is an easy to wear look suitable for most body types. Look out for hot white mesh, laid back trainers and sheer panelling. Take the Sports Luxe look from day to night by adding a pair of simple heels.

The Slip

Proving that the 90s trend is still going strong the slip is a laid back version of summer sexy.  First made famous in cult 90s flick clueless, the slip dress is a fresh take on the ongoing 90s throwback. Take the minimalist approach and pair a slip with simple accessories or none at  all.

Logos

Logos are a huge trend for summer!  Logo emblazoned dresses and jumpers did the talking on the runways of Moschino and Alexander Wang. Pair a loud slogan t-shirt or jumper with a leather mini or dress down with jeans and comfy flats.

Pool Slides

No longer the reserve of the elderly, pool slides are having a major fashion moment. The pool slide has caused much fashion debate with many questioning if slides are simply just another “ugly” fashion trend. Pool slides tie in perfectly with the sports luxe trend so work the look with a sporty crop top and knee length shorts.
