The summer season is packed rich with new and ‘recycled’ styles. These looks offer even the most unassuming and modest, the opportunity to dream while looking chic and current. I, as an avid japanofile, particularly enjoyed seeing the strong influence of japanese design on the various runways. 

This time of year is a time to let your hair down and have some fun. If however you find change difficult, start small. There is no point in spending money on garments you will never wear just because the industry urges you to do so.  Keep your lifestyle in mind and only when you feel ready, take a little step to experiment with a new design or shade. Done correctly, these additions can transform your personal-style and add confidence to your dressing process. It might even awaken a whole new you….  

Some  ideas to look for are: 

Go bold in shades of yellow and purple, or romantic in soft monochromes of pastel hues.

Try some sheer tops, translucent fabrics or tule, satin and fringe if you feel it suits your personality

Invest in a platform shoe or even better a high platform sneaker.

When deciding on an outfit, don’t shy away from combining geometrics alongside dots & florals  

Denim, white, sage, lavender & all shades of yellow are key summer shades.

The Parka - dressy or casual, it is a very useful item year round for the uk.
