The biggest fashion trends for summer 2014 are:

Bold Prints:

A must-have for spring/summer 2014, bold prints seen in anything from botanical, floral, photographic, tribal, aztec and so much more and all key for this summer. Team with boho broad brimmed hats, strappy sandals and statement jewels.

Classic Navy:

A new colour option for summer, the traditional light colour palette for summer is embracing a touch of darkness, with luscious navy adding a sophisticated vibe. Wrap around maxi dresses, chiffon blouses and tailored pants are just a few of the key styles embracing this hue, perfect for the girl who doesn’t love too much colour and likes to remain timeless and classic.

Crisp White:

Nothing is more bohemian and feminine than white! Whether you embrace the all white trend and team a white cami with a boldly printed skirt or shorts, keep accessories luxe with bronze hardware and plenty of layering for a bohemian vibe.

Maxi Dresses:

Flattering, comfortable and stylish – all the things you need all in one! The women’s maxi dress combines pretty much any style and colour with a length enhancing and flattering shape. Not just for formal functions or parties, the maxi dress is great for beach days, luncheons and even coffee dates! Add sandals and a shoulder sling tote for day, or team with high heeled sandals and a clutch for night!

Bohemian Kaftan Tops:

One of our favourite trends for the summer, bohemian kaftan tops sees loose flowing silhouettes, dropped armholes and batwing sleeves in bold colours or classic neutrals. This style is ideal for any beach getaway or weekend outfit, we love teaming kaftan tops with nautical prints and scarves or denims and printed flats.

Think Pink: 

Want to go super girlie? Time to embrace pink! Colour of the moment pink is shown in lust-worthy dresses with gorgeous chiffon layered fabrics or unique structures. WISH and HONEY & BEAU have embraced this colour in all the right ways. Toughen up with silver hardware or black accessories, or go for girlie glam with pastels and gorgeous jewels.
