Key trends for summer from Fashion Week

Well it hasn't been long since Australian Fashion Week, and all the designers have been showcasing their new collections for summer. What are our favourite looks for next season... Florals Pull out your vintage liberty prints. Think maxi and mini dresses as sweet florals take the main stage for prints this summer. And not just for the girls... guys can be seen sporting floral hoodies and the like this summer!

Androgynous Make your wardrobe stretch further by sharing your partner's clothes! Loose long tees, singlets, leggings, shirts, vests for guys and for girls. Drapey pieces in jersery fabric is a key to this look. And a lot of designers are making their gear in unisex sizing. Think outside the box and experiment with layering in monochromatic tones. Girls try out masculine style clothing, guys with long hair or make-up. And yes black is still the new black!

Metallics Think silver, metallic black, wet-look, lycra and all that shimmers! Keep your outfit tonal, or stick to a muted colour palette so as not to go overboard. Pick one statement piece and work around it.

90s Grunge Channel Kurt Cobain and all things Seattle as washed pale denim, flanny style shirts, tie dye, cut off denim shorts and rock tees make a huge comeback. Grab some lace up boots to finish the look, or even better pull your old Doc Martens out of the back of the closet.

Preppy Think country club or yacht club and conjure up images of sailing the mediterranean. Belted shirt dresses and high waisted shorts for girls. Striped shirts over pastel hued shorts for guys, classic tees with white slim line pants and boat shoes. Blazers will also be hot this season. This look will easily take you from work to play this summer.
