Catwalks have been glowing with the fresh look and vibrant colours of the new summer collection, so whether you shimmer with encrusted jewels, don the latest pair of shades, or opt for the latest patterns and cuts, make sure you have in your reach some of the staples of the summer catwalk.

Floras
Sounds like a summer stereotype? Yes, it does, but floral prints have never been more in. They have been a fixture on catwalks this season, featuring in jumpsuits, tops, hem skirts, caftans, ballerinas and trousers in fresh patterns. Most floral patterns come in bold colours and shapes this summer.

Cats-eye shades
Ray-Bans are still very much in fashion, but shades with the cat-eye shape are definitely a bolder, more feminine choice. This season opt for transparent frames, especially in mint colors, which is another look that had been trending lately.

Shirt dresses are back
Celebrities have been sporting recently the latest comfy trend that has been making a comeback, even in the most elegant fashion displays: the shirt dress. So button up and finish the look with a slim belt, or statement accessories. Heels are a fashion faux pas with this clothing item, so opt for flats or ballerinas.

Frills and pleats
Pleats and folds in the hem of a skirt, blouse or dress are a main theme this summer. The Oscars paved the way to this trend, when most of the female stars opted for pleated designs. The same applies to the new shades and pastels that were dominant at the Oscars and that are still very much in vogue.

Embellished look
Clothes that are beaded with gems are very much "in" this summer, not only in the evenings but in the mornings as well, adding glamour around the clock. So whether it is a blouse, summer dress, footwear, or even denim, don’t hesitate to add a touch of shimmer and embellishment.
