Trend Report: Spring/Summer

Nothing beats the arrival of Spring/Summer fashion in-store, to lift the spirits and get us dreaming of warm summer days, events, barbeques, and extended daylight hours.
We visited the stores at Queenstown Central Shopping Centre to scout out emerging trends in Women’s fashion for Spring/Summer.

70’s Revival

While 90’s trend continues to thrive – the 70’s are back baby!
Wide leg, flares, cropped and balloon-leg styles are a big YES this summer. Two-tone denim emerges in both tops and bottom pieces. Bohemian cottons, long-line dresses, florals pared with a modern clog or sandal. Add a beautifully tooled saddle bag, rattan beach bag and oversized bucket hat and you’re good to go…
