One of the biggest trends to celebrate this season is, of course, the Boho trend. “SS 16 sees the continuation of the Boho trend, says Kate Keating, Buyer at Zando. “Tassels, leather and earthy colours take centre stage.” Embellish your wanderlust wardrobe with bold prints in a floral fresh form. From maxi dresses, to wayfarer skirts and off-the-shoulder tops, rich in pastels & earthy tones – let the festive & free-spirited bohemian culture inspire your look this season.

Luxe Movement

Thank the heavens above, Athleisure is here to stay! This comfy trend epitomises the fusion of modern luxe with versatility this summer, from throwback bomber jackets to strappy tops or distressed denims, casual comfort has never been this cool.

Minimal Chic

This season, less is more! Soft, loose detailing with a hint of Grecian infused textures have set the scene for this spring. Let crisp silhouettes splashed with hues of blue, cream and metallic, enthuse your simple yet oh-so-chic ensemble.
