The Versatile Heel
Sandal Heels | Jeans
It was instant love at first sight upon noticing these beauties. You will be attending any occasion for an excuse to crack out these heels.

Last season we saw the colour lime spread like wildfire — it got popular suddenly and it’s still catching on to date. Fashion houses started churning it out in the form of duster jackets, oversized teddy coats and now you see blazers in this vibrant colour. Most fashion bloggers all over the globe own at least one item of clothing in this colour. It’s time to introduce your wardrobe to a nice new addition — this blazer is the ultimate styling weapon.
Palazzo Pants | Low-Top Trainers
We all wake up some days wanting to spend the entire duration of it in the comfiest clothes ever. Palazzo pants are elegant and super feminine and because of their wide leg and light fabric, they’re perfect for keeping you cool whenever it decides to warm up. During the daytime you can add a lightweight jumper and some low tops. Now you have the perfect outfit, and you’re basically wearing socially acceptable pyjamas. If you do end up going away on holiday this year don’t forget to take these with you! Palazzo pants go extremely well with summer sandals and wedges.
The Edgy Jacket
Biker Jacket | Retro Inspired Culottes
White is the key colour this season and gives a subtle nod to the sports-luxe trend. This cropped biker jacket couldn’t be any cooler. This statement jacket will go with just about anything that is hanging in your wardrobe. We thought by teaming it with these retro-inspired culottes would really brighten up your day.
