This summer, denim is not just for jeans. This hardy fabric is made feminine in light colours on skirts, dresses and shirts.  Since it’s such a versatile fabric, and very easy to wear, you’ll see it on sidewalks everywhere. Make summer living easy with this comfortable, casual fabric.




Pretty sheer material is lengthening necklines in a sexy but sophisticated way this season. The most popular way to wear this fabric trend is like the middle example in the image below: a transparent cover over the chest area. Find it (barely) in sleeves, skirts, tops and just about everywhere else.



Boho beautiful meets granny chic this summer via the crochet trend. Crochet tops, cardigans, hats and even jewellery are spinning their way onto catwalks and streetwalks this summer. Keep it cool and flirty with holey stitches that will let the summer breeze through.



Will we ever stop loving lace? Probably not. Lace is still a very popular fabric this season, so you can keep wearing your lovely lacey things for a while longer. This time, don’t go for gothic cascades of the stuff. Use it in the details or try light colours (white is very trendy this season too).
