Are you summer style ready? As the days turn sultry and we start swapping jackets and boots for sundresses and bikinis, we’ve decided to share the trends destined to turn up the heat as the temperature rises this season.
Iconic fashion decade comebacks continue this season with the rise of 80s glam getups for the evenings. Party the night away in cinched waists, exaggerated shoulders and shiny fabrics. Plunging necklines and luxe fabrics bring this style into 2017/18. Keep the dramatic cut from overwhelming your frame and show off your legs in mini dresses.
The fashion world’s obsession with sheer fabric continues, but with a more feminine touch. Soft, dusky hues and full skirts dominate the sheer scene this Spring Summer 2017/18 as we see more evening gowns with the “naked” look. This trend is a must for anyone wanting to rock a gauzy, ethereal style.
The gardens are blooming, and so are our wardrobes! Nothing says Australian fashion and style for Spring Summer 2017/18 like dressing head to toe in riotous florals. Go bold and embody the Australian summer with this trend!
Forget pastels – bright colours are in! Lively, vibrant colours is one of the hottest Australian fashion and style trends for 2017/18, and can be styled in so many ways. From colour-blocking entire ensembles to using a statement piece to really pop, you can get creative and feel truly summery-fresh this season.
Mix and Match
Clashing graphic prints give a wild edge to feminine ensembles and lift the look. We love that this style trend gives you the freedom to incorporate other looks of the season, such as bright colours and bold stripes. The trick is to not think about it too much, but just go with what you’re feeling and let out your fun, flirty side!
Pared back, classic minimalism is one of the hottest trends this upcoming Spring Summer 2017/18 season. Cut a sleek figure in unfussy silhouettes and clean lines, with a tonal palette of neutrals. Never be over- or underdressed with this season’s modern take on minimalism.
