When the sun comes out, so do the colours. 2019 is gradually seeing the incorporation of green through the brightest pops of all – neon, lime or with an acid yellow tint. This highlighter hue is loud and bold without being busy, so lessen the scary and keep it simple with a single piece for each outfit. Whether you’re layering a rain jacket for those summer showers, a thin knit or an easy-to-throw-on side bag, introduce the colour in contrast to your existing wardrobe.

While usually seen through the colder season and autumnal colours, the check pattern is staying strong as we transition into the warmer months. Through traditional symmetrical lines or larger gingham, the humble check is in whatever the arrangement. Wear it in a formal-form with dad-style shirts and pencil skirts or as an outfit-changer with a trench and bright white trainers.

Low Key Utility

This season’s easiest transition trend comes in the form of utility. Ideal for fuss-free fashion, this is summer’s most versatile trend, and can be easily worn in a variety of shapes, styles and colours. Implement by pairing with strappy sandals and a leather jacket for a modern dinner date take or keep it casual and simple with trainers and relaxed shapes.

Whether through finishes of metallic, shimmer or sparkle, this statement trend was seen on the catwalk across all forms of clothing. Incorporate easily into your holiday or at-home wardrobe by adding accents or all-out glam pieces. For a more subtle touch, simply add a metallic heel to add a whole new dimension to your look.
