1. Tropical safari

It’s safe to say tropical safari prints are fashion’s new favourite fabric. So go wild in all things island-inspired – in and out of the office. Bold prints and animal-inspired patterns come in form-flattering styles that are ready for work or weekend wear. Start with the perfect base – a bold print – and layer from there.

2. Fresh florals

This year so far has been filled with an endless choice of ultra feminine floral prints. In a delicate nod to the season ahead, floral prints flourish on everything from sleek skirts to dazzling dresses. In anticipation of balmy days ahead, this trend is the softer side of high summer dressing and multitasks between pretty and polished.

Look to nature as the floral trend punctuates delicate dressing with long-lasting impact. Try mixing and matching your fine floral with other basics and letting the floral speak for itself or step out in style in a head-to-toe botanical ensemble. Floral patterns have that wear-with-anything appeal and assures the return of feminine dressing in the form of pretty prints.
