Look out for the key trends coming from the designer catwalks into our high streets

Denim
Do not be afraid to wear denim on demin. Dungarees are back as trousers, shorts and dresses. New season jeans are skinny and boot leg shaped.

Shine
Sequines, crystals, lurex, lame and an overload on embellishments. Check out easy summer shimmer, space age metallics and full-blown 80’s glamour.

Slip dress
The 90’s slip dress is the S/S 16 key piece. Simple, strappy, slippery, sensuous silks and satins with scalloped lingerie lace.

Stripes
Bold solid stripes as dresses, skirts, trousers, shirts and jackets. This Spring prints are bold, horizontal, vertical, thick, thin multicoloured, monochrome, soft pastels or optical and angular. Look out for these stripes in chiffons, satins and other textures.

Ruffles
Ruffles full of femininity. Whether you wear ruffles all over as above or minimally on the sleeves or added to the bottom of a blouse or skirt. Notice the ‘off the shoulder’ style is a key look this season.

Accessories
Rucksacks are back – very practical.
Handbags in graphic shapes, designed and colours.
Add a tiara to give your outfit a glamour fresh look.
Earring – extra long and delicate to elongate your neck.
Casual shoes are going backless and slipper style.
