Bejeweled Fashion

Designers have now shifted their focus to creating pieces with dazzling metallic and baroque details. Whether covered in chunky Perspex beads, sequined flowers or 3D patterns in hologram beading, bejewelled clothing is indeed glamorous.

A chic iPad case

With the iPad being this season's must-have gadget, it’s no wonder that iPad cases have now become increasingly popular. Reiss's Corina case is in ruched faux leather and can double-up as a chic clutch

Optical Prints

Geometric prints are trending. The prints are seen on the latest collections from Kenzo, Prada, Versus and Miu Miu. On the catwalks the prints were worn head-totoe in dazzling pant suits, or an all-in-one.


The peplum's reign continues on crisp pencil skirts, jackets and cocktail dresses. Have fun wearing these pieces in classic black or fun colours.

Waist Cinchers

The waist is back in focus as designers exaggerate curves with stand-out belts. So look out Thursday evening for wide leather bands, sculptural corset belts or neon skinny belts.


Red is a stunning colour on almost any skin shade. Experts claim the most dazzling shade to wear this season will be pillarbox red. Try an eyepopping red dress or shoes for added oomph to your closet.

Go for Gold

With Olympic fever still in the air, it seems snagging gold items is now on-trend.
