A golden tan, gold lurex thread, arms laden with gold chains and bracelets; signs a new Summer is almost here!
There are three major themes to keep in mind when updating your wardrobe for Spring Summer 10/11 according to Myer and ambassadors the stunning Jennifer Hawkins and a very charismatic Kris Smith;
MODERN MILITARY ie. Khaki jacket with brass buttons, gold button details, invest in a khaki item such as trousers or skirt to give that military feel
COLOUR BLOOM ie. Soft and flowing florals, short ultra-feminine dresses teamed with ankle height military boot, maxi dresses co-ordinated with the platform wedge for a cool, calm and collected summer look
SHIP SHAPE NEW NAUTICALS ie. red, white and blue and always in fashion, fitted body hugging horizontal striped mini dress matched with white canvas sneakers, a pair of Ray Bans, or the sought after new release retro clear or coloured frame sunglasses from the likes of Prada
Accessories are a highlight; wedges in a variety of colours are a must have, the clog heel is another essential for your wardrobe this season. Stunning gold bracelets, rings and necklaces are also on-trend. Heavy metal detail, studs and chains on shoes and bags are a tougher alternative.
Colour palettes to focus on are peaches, pinks and nudes. Layer them up, and co-ordinate these with khaki to bring in the soft touch. Anything that shimmers to catch that glint of sunshine.
For the guys’ Summer wardrobe add tailored shorts, utility pants, chinos, desert boots, boat shoes, checked and pastel cotton shirts. Accessories including aviator sunglasses, tote bags, and canvas slip-ons complete the picture.
Overall skin is in – let the new season begin!
