A pencil skirt is a classic silhouette, and you can never go wrong with one — be it for work or play. This crochet white number is perfect for the transitional weather, and you can dress it down with a slogan tee to college, or dress it up with a sexy crop top and peep-toe boots for an evening of dancing.
Culottes were the standout trend of 2015 and are showing no signs of leaving the Cool Girl wardrobe in 2016. These bright red pants with front pleats will help you stand out like the fashion forward girl you are.
Here’s another great piece that you can dress down or up, depending on your mood or the occasion. Wear this pure cotton skater dress (that’s such a lovely blush hue!) with white sneakers and a cropped denim jacket to your new internship, or dress it up for your college party with a pair or sleek heels and a statement necklace.
Once again, pleats are a mainstay for summer, and this micro pleat top from Mango is pure perfection. The gorgeous gradient colour works so well for both day and night, with ripped denims as well as an A-line mini skirt!
This bright mustard maxi dress from indie label Khara Kapas is what summer perfection is all about. Wear it with tan lace-up flats to Sunday brunch with your girl gang, or cinch it in with a statement belt of a party. You’ll look oh-so-cool and comfortable. Promise!
Life’s a permanent picnic in Gingham, so be sure to incorporate this trend in your new season wardrobe. If you’re not sold on wearing the print all over, invest in a cool separate — like this Only shirt — (or a skirt!) and team it with a solid colour to break the pattern.
Make all your disco dreams come true in this chic camisole top from Topshop. The multi-coloured sequins add all the drama needed for an evening outfit and the back detail will have you bringing sexy back in style!
If there’s one piece of clothing that defines casual chic, it’s a breezy shirt dress. And this summery blue cotton piece is going to become my go-to outfit this season. If you’re feeling adventurous, team it with a pair of high-shine brogues like the ones from Blur below.
Slip dresses reminiscent of the grungy ’90s are SO in right now. If you’re too shy to invest in one, this maxi dress is a great way to try out the trend. Its scooped neck and racerback style is perfect for showing off sun-kissed shoulders while the gathered hem gives the bottom half some shape. Perfect for that beach vacay you’ve been planning, no?
How absolutely fun are these midnight blue holographic brogues from Blur? They’re funky enough to elevate ANY basic outfit, be it cuffed denims and a half-tuck white shirt, or a cute summer dress. Fashion is all about having fun, and there’s no better way to do that than with a pair of comfy chic shoes!
