It's that time again. Out with the old and in with the new. Follow the fash-pack and get shopping before the change of weather and the abundance of festivals that will soon be upon us. Here are our top 10 pointers to breathing new life into your wardrobe.
I'm a sucker for detail. Give me a zip, a buckle or a tassel and I’m immediately reeled in. Intricate details make an otherwise simple garment stand out from the crowd. A fringe, (the fashion kind, not the hair variety) has a Boho-feel that’s more fitting with American cowboys and Wild West films.
Jumpsuits are your modern solution to easy fuss-free dressing. These all-in-one ensembles are your casual and more versatile alternative to a dress and especially fabulous for those you don't like flashing a bare leg.
No matter where your destination, carry-on toiletries are a challenge to get right.
Any woman that loves her cosmetic and wash-bag feels more confident having her products close by, in-flight, rather than in the undercarriage. God forbid it gets lost and you're without; it would scar your holiday more than bad weather ever could.
Yellow fever has spread across catwalks and high street stores for high summer dressing. When Pantone announced the colour of the season, yellow was the surprise hue. It's a playful choice of what can be wonderfully grown-up. From buttercup to acid yellow, bursts of pure colour will instantly illuminate your wardrobe.
As a family of five, there's plenty of luggage and packing when the holiday season arrives, but ironically the only woman in the house, a.k.a me, packs the least amount before a trip abroad. Even my husband is privy to trying to squeeze a sixth pair of shoes into his suitcase, just-in-case. Since my challenging brood came on the scene, my just-in-case items no longer exist.
Whisk your wardrobe to far-flung exotic destinations via Aztec patterns, rustic colours and quirky designs. Mix and match to create a real traveller feel. An eclectic mash-up of billowy fabrics, wrap-around prints, harem pants and floor-skimming skirts create a heady cocktail of chic batik that's perfect for casual summer dressing.
Sun, surf and sea is finally upon us. Although we all love the sunshine, the holidays, the longer days and nights, summer also brings along that dreaded swimwear devil. This year however, trends have never been kinder to all shapes and sizes.
Never before has a sport been so timely in the name of fashion. Wimbledon will be soon making its annual mark with tennis-lovers and sport enthusiasts glued to TV screens and keen tennis players trying to serve their own wins in parks across the country. The colour white will be ever present on the court as well as in the audience.
