Stay warm in the sun with this summer’s hot new looks, carved straight out of a retro-meets-denim fiesta playbook. Grounded in cool vibes that exude nothing but down-to-earth vibes, get ready to sport ruched separates, graphic tees and winning denim bottoms for the taking. Sunglasses are a surefire way to top off your looks in the summer heat — start to glow.
Frills All Around
Ruching is this season’s hottest new trend. Born out of a romantic love for ruffles and childlike association with a touch of girlishness. Naturally figure-flattering, this textured style is a new alternative to body-con and comfortably slips on and off. Talk about figure-hugging curves and naturally waist-cinching effects. Available in a handful of colours and patterns, pair this fit-and-flare top with a short, skirt or slimming jeans to balance out its peplum hem.
Retro Graphic Tees
Retro tees are back and rockin’ with faded out prints, fun typography and stylish phrases to boot — spelling out summer vacation vibes, road trips and wading out in surfers’ paradise. Dress the part and wear these equally perfect festival attire clothing out and about on the streets for a down to earth look that will have you looking too cool for school. Pair it with denim for the best off-duty look and a pair of your favourite kicks.
It’s All in the Buttons
It’s a denim fiesta this season with a string of buttons to accessorise your casual looks and bring them to the next level. Dotted down the front in classic linear form, fashion and function are balanced with trending go-to buttons that will make any outfit stand out. Go for a mini skirt or shorts in classic blue, black or white — staple colours will mix and match with ease any day. For a younger appearance that bears no effort, pair your denim with a strapless top, highlighting your shoulders without baring all. A frayed hem adds an extra cool, modern-chic vibe to the look that is equally on-trend.
