GET YOUR WARDROBE WARM WEATHER READYThe warm weather is finally here. It’s time to get your wardrobe ready with the latest trends for summer 2016/17.
A new weighty earring trend has emerged and the bigger the better it seems. We’ve seen an abundance of super-sized accessories like pom-poms and chandelier styles hanging from the earlobes of many models and style gurus. Furthermore, if you’ve lost one half of your favourite pair then it looks like you’re in luck – another of this season’s fashion trends is to juxtapose your accessories with one small earring on one ear and one huge, dangling piece on the other – who would have thought matching pairs would become so last season? You could go further still and embrace the single, super-sized earring trend. Note: It must be worn with confidence to avoid looking like you lost an earring sprinting for the train.
THE STATEMENT SLEEVE
It’s time to have fun with your sleeves this season and really make a statement. Roll up shirt sleeves in oversized folds, yank down to expose the shoulder, or unbutton and invert the cuff so it fans out over your arm. Look for eye-catching detail in shirts like the puffed sleeve, pirate or bell shapes, or create your own interest by wearing piled-on bangles over your sleeves, right up your forearm.
From saffron to chartreuse to bright citrus, we’ve seen a whole range of options of the colour yellow and there’s something to suit every skin tone. At spring/summer fashion weeks around the globe designers previewed everything from highlighter-like neon, to fizzy sherbet yellows, to more muted mustard paired with statement gold earrings.
FLOATY DRESSES AND ASYMMETRICAL HEMLINES
Dresses are always a summer staple, but this season make yours a loose, languid, asymmetrical number rather than one with structured shape. Stay on trend and keep your eye out for floaty dresses with dreamy ruffles or asymmetrical hemlines.
