Fashion’s Five & Five – Trends for Men & Women

Express-Floral-Print-Sweetheart-Neckline-Cami-SundressSummer fashion 2016 is all about comfort with flare and personality. The fabrics, even the denim, are soft and flowing (but not sloppy).

Instead of changing your entire wardrobe, pick a few of the top trends for your daily look. Choose what suits you best and don’t forget this season’s great pops of colour!

  • Lemon yellow
  • Bright blue
  • Coral or the new hot pink called Honeysuckle

5 Trends for Women to Be In Style

  • Floral Summer Dresses – The floral dress (cotton, linen and blends) comes in a variety of patterns and styles. Sleeveless or cap sleeves with a light jacket is great for the office and patio.
  • Oversized White Shirt – Tailored or bohemian, wear over cropped pants for an updated  Audrey Hepburn look, especially when you add your favourite necklace. Use as a swimsuit cover-up, and informal jacket over a tank top, or add a belt to dress it up.
  • 129270Large Bright Totes or Half-Moon Bags – Totes are everywhere. The crescent or half moon shoulder bag’s distinguishable shape not only makes it look cool, but is the definition of a statement accessory… and hot colours are a must!
  • 1970s Bohemian Inspired – Pick a loose-fitting top, gathered at the neck and the sleeves, often in white or cream with lace or embroidery details, a perfect combination with a classic denim skirt or shorts.
  • Maxi Skirt or Dress – Suitable for all ages, these long dresses are actually cool to wear. A variety of prints and geometric designs, these are perfect for the hottest days with a sun hat and espadrille sandals.

5 Trends for Men to Be In Style

  • Coloured Pants – It’s not just for the golfers. Wear shorts and chinos in colours like coral, pink, blue, light green even red with a slim silhouette jacket.
  • 4478cd303767020d8bca6ebebbf51e68Men’s Footware – It keeps giving us more and more varieties such as slip-on sneakers and rope-soled espadrilles. Choose a pair in classic plain colours, beige, navy, white, or black as well as great patterns.
  • Sunglasses – Round sunglasses are back with coloured frames for a fun and flattering summer look.
  • Backpacks are Back – For work, not hiking, they come in finer fabrics like suede, and are available from top designers.
  • Lots of Green – Layering your pants, t-shirts and jackets, in different shades of green, is okay to wear all at once.
