The weather's heating up, so it's time your wardrobe follow suit! Fashion stylist Afiya Francisco shares her six must-have trends to start your summer in style.
Pretty, soft hues have taken over from neon. Use pastels to soften heavier materials like leather in the warmer months. Choose one standout colour or have fun with several hues at once.

This look is all about understated luxury — no logos, very clean fluid lines and simple silhouettes.
Black and white was a major trend this past fall and winter. The trend continues, but now it’s all about being easy breezy in a white dress — a nice clean column keeps things fresh and fluid for the summer.

Artistic prints were a recurring theme among designers on the spring/summer runway. Brushstrokes, paint splatter and even portraits were among some of the strongest designs. These vivid colours are a perfect way to welcome the warmer months.
The New Bohemian
This 70s revival look is all about a fluid shape, more muted colours and and easy breezy layers.
The sporty trend continues with technical fabrics replaced by soft, luxe materials like silk, satin and fine knit jersey. Dress up a baseball jacket in satin with an embellished tee, comfy jersey skirt and a pair of metallic sandals.
