Get ready for a long, hot summer...
It’s time to feel the heat and get ready for a long, hot summer. This season we’re not about fading into the background, we’re taking on a maximalist state of mind. High octane brights, clashing colours and saturated prints, everything is big, bold, beautiful and taking subtle retro cues from the 80s. Introducing the summer collection that you’re going to want to couple up with, these are your trophy pieces…


Day or night, we’re tasting the rainbow and saturating ourselves in colour. Play with the colour wheel and choose hues in punchy orange, zesty yellow and hot pink. The best thing about holiday style is the day-to-night transformation. A cami dress will look just as good poolside as it does after sunset. During sunlight hours add slim white frames and a printed headscarf and come night, layer up the gold jewellery. Versatile pieces make packing for your getaway so easy.


A Hawaiian shirt and bum bag used to be your dad’s holiday uniform that you’d cringe at, but now you’re rocking it in your own way. We’re reimagining the classic Hawaiian shirt in a soft tie-dye print in dreamy sunset colours. Tie it at the waist and team it with your trusty denim shorts; we love high-rise distressed styles. This trend is all about adding more so accessories are key. Pick out your favourite shade from the shirt, get a hair band in that colour and throw on your best mirror lens sunnies. 


While denim shorts are a holiday packing essential, never under estimate the power of the classic jeans-and-a-nice-top combo, home or away. Again, we’re choosing high-rise denim in a straight cut with distressed detailing. Choosing a light wash nods to the subtle 80s aesthetic that runs throughout the trend. On to the ‘nice top’. Our prints our loud, bright and made to be seen and this scarf-print top is everything we’ve been dreaming of. Keep your accessories in-line with colours that are weaved into the prints but don’t be afraid to clash. 


We’re taking things after dark. The sun might set, but the temperature keeps rising. Warm, balmy evenings call for dining alfresco, sipping on cocktails and exploring new night life. While we’re introducing a bit of black, it’s still all about the va-va voom prints and strong colours – we’re crushing on hot pink. Pick out the chain print detailing and go for gold when it comes to your jewellery. Whether you’re keeping it chill or dancing until sunrise, OTT glam is the look.
