The Trends We Will Be Seeing This Spring/Summer in Aust!

Colour Colour Colour!

Colour blocking is huge right now in the US and for our spring/summer we will be seeing the same thing.
Think brights on brights.  Last season we seen pastels coming in, now this trend has been taken on step further for the new season, and we are seeing pastels and brights being worn with other bright and pastel pieces.  We are talking solid colour pieces! Single colour one pieces, skirts, tops, dresses, you name it!

There will be a lot of hot pink, purple, emerald, sky blue and orange coming in the next few months.

I personally like colour blocking with a little stripe to give it a little edge.  The whole point of colour blocking is to use the colour as a double statement as avoid prints.  Let the colour be free!

Colour blocking can be done with any fashion item, especially accessories.  Don't forget about your nail lacquer.


Wedges for summer are back, and in a big way! Expect to see a lot of nautical rope, coloured heals, printed heals and bright straps.

Wedges are more fun as there is more room to play with.  As there is more heal there is room for playing with prints, colours and themes.  This way you can match them beach bags, hair scarfs, beach towels, sunnies and bangles.


Nautical means summer in my mind.  When you see rope detailing and blue and white stripes on a bikini or a beach bag it makes the imagination wander off to thinking of summer on a yacht off the coast of Monaco.  Nautical theme always oozes class.  Blue and White stripes are flattering on most body shapes.

We will be seeing the return of nautical this coming summer with rope detailing on wedges, heals, dresses, beach bags, and accessories.  Blue and White striping will be all over maxi dresses, summer dresses, beach bags, summer hats and bikinis.

White Blazers!

White Blazers are going to be all the rage this coming spring/summer season as all winter we have been rocking our black blazers and in summer we will want to brighten and soften this look.  Blazers will be cropped and have the tuxedo detailing at the front.  Pair your white blazer with a colour blocked dress for evening drinks by the coast.

This coming spring/summer season we will be seeing a lot of fun trends.  You can mix and match trends and the best part about summer is that its all about enjoying the warm weather with family and friends.  Remember to always be sun smart and rock a bright coloured summer hat :-)
