While away the balmy summer nights in a surprising combination of bright colours. This retro Miami feel is guaranteed to blow every colour rule out of the water.

Kaleidoscopic combinations of powder blue and orange, pink and peppermint green, not to mention, well…every colour out there, are adding a spontaneous and playful twist to our summer wardrobes. These vigorous colour schemes are top of the agenda this season, transporting you to 1920s Miami where the sun shines and the style is a breath of fresh air.

This trend is about mixing colours that aren’t usually deemed acceptable. And the way to wear them? Colour blocking.

Colour blocking doesn’t push the colour boundaries per se (it crops up in one form or another every season), but there’s a new way to freshen up the trend. Select three or four colours that you would never think to combine and wear them all at once. What seems at odds hanging in your wardrobe will feel harmonious when paired together.

Now buy that ticket to Miami and treat your suitcase like a paint by numbers kit!

Fringing, whether you’re pro or quietly sceptical, it’s going to find its way into your wardrobe! But buyer beware, styling this boho classic requires a little finesse to avoid looking like you’ve stepped out of the wild, wild west! See our three step guide to avoid those fringing faux pas…

Fabrication, fabrication, fabrication

Be selective with materials. Leather-look and suede-look fabrics have come a long way, but some can still look overly synthetic. Fringing can look seriously cheap if it’s made with the wrong material, so be critical with your choices.

Less is more

We love that swooshy feeling that fringing gives to a hemline as much as the next girl, but keep it to one item in an outfit to remain the right side of cowgirl. You can wear almost anything with fringed detail this season, just limit yourself to one piece per outfit, whether it’s a fringed suede jacket or a statement fringed tote.

Don’t forget the 40s

Fringing doesn’t have to hail from the desert plains, the 40s is a great era for inspiration. Channel your inner flapper girl in a dress, skirt or top with tiers of delicate fringing. Alternatively, opt for full-length fringing stretching from shoulder to shin for an after dark take on the trend.

Khaki is the colour to covet this season, channelling the utility trend with maximum effect but with minimum effort.

Khaki green is a surprising wear-with-anything base for all the pastels and crisp whites we’re crushing on this summer, but while military greens are at the heart of the trend, colour isn’t the only way to construct your everyday uniform.  Utility patch pockets are the detail du jour, the bigger the better, featuring on trousers, shorts, skirts, jackets and military style shirts – just about anything really!

This summer you have two styling options: go literal with army or navy references, or simply shrug on a classic trench in a utility tone to give a subtle nod to the trend. Practicality is the buzz word of the season, and with all those pockets you’ll finally be able to invest in that micro bag you’ve had your eye on.

This is undoubtedly the trend to enlist in right now, go have your military moment!

Free your spirit and buy a one way ticket on the festival express, because boho just got beautiful. Think less groupie and more whimsy to channel the new bohemian vibe this summer.

Diaphanous dresses, fluid silhouettes and peasant embroidery whet the appetite for all the intricate prints that complete this globetrotting look. From Navajo fringing to Ikat prints, the boho trend brings together cultures and traditions that can transform you into a worldly and wondrous woman in an instant.

The catwalks gave us a masterclass in print and colour, set to continue well into autumn, so now is the time to invest. Get an easy intro to boho in a fringed poncho, suede jacket or peasant blouse, or go all out and embrace your new-found freedom in a floor-length fluid dress.

The details will make or break your look, so don’t be afraid of fringing, embroidery or lacing to get your point across. Above all, remember to look ethereal…if you’re becoming a hippy this summer, you might as well make it haute hippy!
