The future is female! Hot colourful power suit trend is quickly emerging this season.

Sometimes we love it when women forgo feminine frocks and wear fashionable suits for a borrowed-from-the-boys look. This look can be worn to premieres, parties, and other fabulous events. Some of the women who rocked this trend, looked totally office appropriate in classic cuts, while others were ready to party in bold patterns and colors. Whether you prefer a bright coloured suit like Aderonke or a dark tailored monochrome suit, you will definitely stand out in the crowd with this look.

Gingham Dresses 



Gingham is a trend that everyone knows, but it’s still surprisingly hard to pull off without looking like a picnic table. However, in the right colors (say blue or green) and silhouettes (high-waisted pants or flowy shirtdresses), the print can be refreshingly chic like Titiloa Sogunro






Denim will forever be a big part of our wardrobes, and that’s not changing in 2018. But if you want to get a little inventive with your look, you might need to look beyond the jeans already in your drawer.

Jeans are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing in our closets. They’re easy to dress up and super comfortable to wear. But with the start of a new season comes a brand-new selection of denim trends

Floral Dresses




The floral trend still continues from previous years with printed pants, mini-dresses, skirts, and everything else retailers can put a flower on. Florals are all about having fun with fashion and embracing the joy and romance

This season’s florals come in soft pastel colours and vibrant hues, all of which are some variation of the garden theme.

Soft floral prints offer a touch of femininity to warm weather style so you can bring out your girlish charm with every outfit and accessory you wear.

There’s nothing like a chic swimwear to usher in summer. But before you embark on your annual hunt for the one- or two-piece that you can slip into for weekend getaways and shoreside excursions all season long, we highly recommend going in with a plan in place

You can go for the coloured swimwear like the one on Somkele Iyamah or cut away denim bikinis.

The 1930s Look




It is time for the flirty thirties. Nipped-in waist, pouffy sleeves, and satins and silkens. Refined yet decadent. Louche yet proper. These are clothes to have cocktails in over lunchtime assignations – meltingly feminine and completely powerful.





Chunky Necklaces

This accessory doesn’t have to be expensive, but it can add a pop of color or glam to any outfit made from a variety of materials: glass, hammered metal, gemstones, beads, acrylic, plastic, shells or resins.

Because of it’s size, a chunky necklace can stand on it’s own or it can look great when worn with other necklaces as a layering piece. Wear them with a button down shirt for work (under the collar like a man’s tie), a simple t-shirt and wide legged jeans for play, or a chic strappy dress to go out.
