Below are some of the latest trends to take you through the summer in style.

The 80s are back with a bang

Although the eighties’ trends were always the least favoured by the majority, who look back at them with a bit of dismay, fashion experts have decided it is time to have a fresh take on the decade, and bring back its most iconic looks: broad padded shoulders, bold metallic colours and big jackets.

Slogan shirts and tops

The very unconventional trend of flashing a slogan or expressive words on clothes has dominated many designs this season, partly due to the wave of political polarization in many places around the world.
