Summer fashion trends

July 1st, 2016

Summer is finally here! However, due to the unreliable British weather any opportunity to model this summer’s fashion trends must be grasped. From statement colours to detailed patterns, we’ve created a selection of looks that will inspire your outfits this summer.

Sunset Shades


Fantasising about magical sunsets? Bring a bit of warmth to your wardrobe by introducing the intense orange and red shades of the sun. There’s no need to stick to one colour when you can go for ombre sunset shades. Whether you want to make a statement in a burnt orange dress or add a splash of colour to your outfit with some accessories, this trend is hot this summer.

Men could also model this trend with a summer shirt or a pair of swim shorts. Go for zesty yellow colours; they’re enough to brighten your day, even when the British weather doesn’t.



Florals are perfect for summer and this year is no exception. Whether you’re looking for an outfit for a wedding, a day at the races or just a casual picnic in the park, this is the perfect style to keep you on trend. If you don’t feel like going fully floral, accessories are a great way to wear the trend.

This print looks great on men too. Opt for a paisley suit in the office, or some tropical swimming shorts by the beach to ensure you’re staying stylish.



The pyjama look isn’t just for the bedroom; we’ve seen it on numerous catwalks including the likes of Givenchy and Calvin Klein. Think kimonos and loose fitting pieces – the lightweight fabric is perfect for warmer weather and oozes luxury. Silk slip dresses are a great choice if you’re feeling daring, or alternatively opt for loose-fitting shorts or trousers if you’re looking for something a little tamer. To finish off the look add some delicate strappy sandals. Heels are a must to distinguish between going out and going to bed!



The Nautical trend has been longstanding for a reason – it’s both chic and extremely wearable. This look works for all ages and looks just as great on women as it does on men. One thing to remember is that a little goes a long way. To avoid the comic sailor look, opt for a Breton striped top paired with jeans, or a nautical skirt with a bright red lip.

All Things White


White is a colour that never goes out of fashion and can refresh any outfit. It’s perfect for a sharp office look or for a relaxed weekend away. It is also looks great on men. Go for a crisp white shirt or, if you’re confident enough, a pair of white trousers. The clean colour is key to looking classy while also keeping you cool in the heat.

Be sure to steer clear of any risky liquids to avoid embarrassing spillages!
