The top 10 fashion trends, to try this Summer!

Are you ready for some new summer trends to inject into your wardrobe? It’s hard not to get excited about shedding those heavy winter layers and moving towards effortless lightweight garments.

Wollongong Central’s Resident Stylist Jade Sardon from STYLED BY JADE & Co is here to share the trends you will be seeing and that are available for purchase via click and collect or online.
 

BLACK & WHITE

Trends come and go, but dressing in black and white is a timeless classic. Pair any black and white garments to get the look.

Key patterns to look out for and to incorporate into your outfit are black white chequerboard fabrics, strong contrasts in line and patterns, mixing geometric patterns or an exaggerated ‘70s style swirl.

FLARED PANTS

For a fresh silhouette, update your pants or jeans with a pair of high waisted flares. Flared pants are generally tighter around the thigh and become wider from the knee down. Flares can be as subtle or extreme as you wish, depending on how wide you choose.

Traditionally flared pants give the illusion of long legs therefore are flattering to most body types.

This season's key flared trends are light wash or dark denim flares, split seam opening at the bottom of the flare, floor sweeping flares and cropped flares.

balloon sleeves 

As seen on the runway, wide balloon sleeves are a key trend making a huge comeback this season. From jumpers to dresses, shirts to tops, everything this season has a feminine and fun balloon sleeve.

Make a statement by adding a balloon sleeve. Dramatic balloon sleeve tops are flattering to any body shape. The voluminous fabric at the wrists, balances out the arms and makes them look slimmer.

BOLD PRINTS

Prints this season are loud and proud, often contrasting but visually appealing.

Bold prints to look out for are exaggerated florals, gingham, circular, polka dots, abstract motifs, zebra print and stripes. Be creative by mixing prints to get the look.
