Tone on Tone
Far beyond a ‘twin-set’ this is the not so secret, secret, of all the men and women in the world who possess great style. Forever a classic and on point, it really is the perfect match. Pairing your neutral tones is always a dream and selecting bold prints and seasonal colour ways will give this look a modern edge.
Blazing new trails
We all love a great blazer, so consider taking this classic piece and pairing it back with tailored shorts and your favourite summer tee. For a faultless finishing touch, team with a super cool sun visor and a pair of must have summer espadrilles and your blazer will take on a new identity in your wardrobe
Playful and Graphic
We have grown to love a good print and they are quickly becoming a staple feature in most of our wardrobes whether it’s to add a pop of colour or make a bold statement of our own.
Choosing prints in the key shades of the season will keep your look fresh and modern. Think turmeric yellows and mustards, rusts, sage greens and mint… think of them as amplified neutrals and when you choose well, these are the perfect colours to take you into the cooler seasons - clearly a wise and justifiable investment.
The colour way
Summer 2020 is less about pastels and more about amplified neutrals in shades that perfectly match our Australian landscape and take us back to nature. Varying shades and hues of greens, rusts and yellows are at the forefront and will add a sense of warmth and enduring style to any outfit and for those of you who prefer a little more pop the good news is that you will find neon hints among this palette to brighten your day. #winning
If you are a little unsure about whether you can pull off some of these shades, mustards and turmeric yellows come to mind, consider incorporating them into your shoe and accessory collection, but don’t be afraid to give something new a try. You might be very pleasantly surprised.
Remember the stylist’s rule of thumb… not everything has ‘rack’ appeal.
Don’t let the sun set on your summer style. It’s the perfect time to reinvigorate your wardrobe just one last time before the autumn breeze moves in.
