HOT TOGS FOR HOT TEMPS
SO MANY CHOICES, SO LITTLE TIME. Bold patterns, bright colours and interesting textures will convince you to toss away heavy garb and drab garments in favour of light, bright and fun dresses this summer. Step out of your comfort zone and experiment with a wide variety of sleeve options. Everything from cap sleeves to cuffs are currently trending. But if you have given the cold shoulder to the cold-shoulder style sleeve, you will want to give this trendy cut-out a try ASAP. Regardless of where you find yourself on the style spectrum, from cool conservative to boho-chic, this summer your casual dress options are plentiful.
