Summer Trends 2018

Hellooo Summer

With summer officially starting on the 21st June, we thought what better way to get summer ready then with the low down on some of the top trends, which you won’t be able to escape this season. From the most stylish ways dress, to the best ways to chill this summer. Take a look at these…..  

Pastels Vs Colour Pop 

Fashion and colour are a match made in heaven, so, this summer get ready to see garments covered in every colour of the Pantone colour chart. From the lightest pinks and blues, to the more vibrant red and green tones, this summer is popping colour.

The key is how you mix and match colours together, go on, be daring this summer and embrace the bold and bright tones 

Another way to get summer ready is to embrace the matchy match - this is BANG on trend for the summer season. Pick yourself up a two-piece shorts and blazer set and funky pair of metallic shoes and you’re ready to party the summer nights away. 

In the world of greeting cards, big, bold colours are also setting the pace. The best way to bring a bit of summer cheer to someone’s birthday, wedding or any event is through vibrant colours! We’ve just launched a wide range of 'Block Out’ doodle style greeting cards (just in time for the sunshine season, perfect timing, we know!) covering occasions from graduation, love, birthdays and so much more! Take a look at the whole collection here. 

Accessories, PLEASE!  

Enamel pins are sizzling hot for this Summer season, they may be small, but they make a huge statement. From quote pins to plant pins, they are the perfect way to dress up or dress down (hello rock chick) any outfit. Our fav way to wear these is pinned all over a distressed denim jacket (with a few embroidered patches for good measure, of course!) and voila, there you have the perfect summer throw-on jacket with all the hottest summer accessories. Yass.

Take a look at our new arrivals to our Enamel Pin and Embroidered Patch Collection. Start accessorising your way through this summer. 

Too cool for pool… 

With the holiday season in full swing and the pool photos featuring all over your Insta feed (JEL!!), what better way to get poolside ready than with a brand-new planner/notebook. We all know lounging in the sunshine next to the pool is THE most relaxing thing to do, so why not let your creative juices start flowing and get to work on your holiday diary. Making notes of all the places you loved, the best restaurants you ate at and of course, the best place for your nightcap cocktail(s). Perfect!  

However, you wish to kick start your summer, go and enjoy it in style!
