Stripe it this seaso season n They have been all over the runways nways for Spring/Sum Spring/Summer 2011, and the wider the stripes the better. No; it won’t make you look b bigger. Surprisingly, stripes give the illusion of making you slimmer, so vamp up your wardrobe with rich colourful stripes in blues, greens, yellows and reds.

Hello sailor is still a hot look this season, but why not branch out from your sailor blue and white stripes and go bold? International fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Prada are celebrating wide stripes for summer, and you will find plenty of choice amongst the High Street stores.

Not so sure about stripes? Then don’t go all out in them. Instead keep half of your outfit colour blocked for a simple but effective look. Pair your stripes with denim – an oversized T-shirt with frayed denim shorts creates a relaxed summer feel.

Retro is back – 70s style but with a re-vamp. Robine Pierr

While skinny jeans remain a popular staple in the wardrobe this season, the high-waisted, wide, flared and fuller leg is a welcoming contrast. Go all out and embrace the look with patterns, accessories and floaty fabric tops. Marc Jacobs welcomes the 70s in glamour dresses. The jumpsuit/playsuit is back, for those fashionistas who want to be a little daring and playful!

hot trends Floral explosion



s mer r Fa

From dresses, skirts and tops to accessories, romantic floral prints (big or small) remain this season. Look out for coloured d flowers on maxi dresses.

Colour blocking When it comes to colour blocking, the brighter the better, and d the hottest colour trend this summer is tangerine (have no more than three colours on the go). Avoid pairing them with black. Instead, ad, opt for neutral tones.

Loobie Story s

Purely white If you can’t get your head around going bold this summer then keep it simple by going all white in a feminine white dress or shirt dress. Not only does it ooze purity and sophistication, but it’s a fantastic crisp alternative to the brights.

Caroli Sillsne



Don’t be shy to mix and match colours with patterns. Wear your stripes with prints, such as a striped top with a leopard or patterned skirt. Make a statement and clash those patterns. Wacky and wonderful international designer Vivienne Westwood loves creating this look with no rules!

Karen Walker Walker style Internationally acclaimed New Zealand fashion designer Karen Walker was in Christchurch last month to celebrate the arrival of the Karen Walker 2012 Summer Collection at Rouche in Merivale Mall.

Kare Walken r

She describes her Spring/Summer 2011 Collection ‘Ordinary Day, Perfect Day’ as “colourful, feminine and whimsical, and a signal that summer is on the way.” Walker’s collection was inspired by the dance scene in Northern England in the late 70s; specifically a legendary club there called the Wigan Casino. “We loved the idea of working class kids getting dressed up in their Saturday night best to go dancing all night,” says Walker. The designer brings classic clothing alive with her whimsical prints and eye for detail. There are plenty of frills and ruffles in this range from sheath dresses to even hats, along with floral floaty fabrics and bright orange, blue and mustard colours.

shades for summer

One of the most important accessories for spring and summer mer is of course sunglasses. This season the styles range from om sporty to classic, rock and pop. The frames are smaller than the oversized frames of past seasons. The novelty of this season is coloured frames. Sunglasses not only defend our eyes from the harsh UV rays but also complete our summer outfits. So they are an accessory and a necessity. The trend this season is still your usual oversized frames however they are not as large.



& ce Dol bana Gab

We are seeing classic and simple lady-like sunglasses everywhere this season. Frames are moving away from extravagant shapes and sizes to a chic solid frame that is flattering for the face. Try out a simple circular solid frame with a dark lens for that classic look.






Take a trip back to the 50’s and 60’s this season with cateye sunglasses. This trend particularly suits women with heartshaped or square faces and is a sure way to ensure you stand out from the crowd this summer. The chic, statement glasses are here to stay with colours such as glamorous black, purple, ivory, khaki green, burgundy and blue. Those who prefer to blend in will be happy to know that aviator and oversized retro sunglasses are still big for this season.


Aviator sunglasses are easy to wear and match many styles while retro sunglasses in black, white or patterns add glamour to any summer outfit. Sunglasses Hut is stocking the ever popular RayBan collection with their new twist of interchangeable lenses. This provides a more affordable way to have several pairs of sunglasses. After all everyone likes a bit of variety at times.

Want to make an impact this summer? Just add the latest accessories to your wardrobe for an instant update!

Kagi Harri from ngton s

Bags shine in fresh bright colours. Adding a new coloured bag to your collection is an easy, instant way to update your look. Go for neon blue, pink, orange, green or lemon to carry your belongings in style. Hot styles this summer include the clutch and purse. They are easy to carry around and perfect for evening. A classic leather piece is a must for your wardrobe due to its versatility. Larger bags are also prominent this season with the trend being the short strap, so you can still fit absolutely everything in it.


m Far

Wavy-edged and panama hats are perfect beach companions this season. They provide protection from the sun while still giving you an elegant look. Pair these hats with high-waisted pants or a maxidress to turn heads.



Big, bold jewellery is another top pick. Collared necklaces, feathered or long dangly earrings and colourful bracelets all make a statement. Geometric, multi-layered and tribal elements add interest to your summer style. Bold and chunky necklaces make a great addition to any dress or top to add that extra something to your outfit. Cuffs are a must have on everyone’s wrist this summer; they can be worn with a casual or dressy outfit. Lastly, the more you can fit on your fingers the better - chunky rings are big this season so it is time to wear all your favourite rings at once. Skinny belts are an attractive way to highlight your silhouette. Team an elegant black or silver belt with an evening outfit to show off your summer body. For a more casual approach a tan or sandstone coloured belt can be all you need to complete your look.

Avon Bridals owner Fran Broad tells us the trends for this coming wedding season incorporate a lot of the perennial favourites but with a soft and feminine twist. Strapless gowns with fitted and ruched bodices and A-line skirts ranging from slim line to full ball-gown styles are still popular. However, the detailing is more towards exquisite lace being used as appliquĂŠ features or as full overlays, embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls for a very romantic look. Fabrics range from soft and flowing chiffons through to luxurious silks and interesting taffetas and satins. Traditional white and ivory colours are still the most likely choice. However, soft shades of silver and oyster are making an appearance, as are contrast colours being used to accent. Beaded belts, coloured belts adorned with flowers and sheer lace straps are all making an impact this season to complement gowns and add an element of indulgence.

This is available in warm or cool tones such as cotton candy, pomegranate, iced mocha and crab apple. The silky-feeling powders are water resistant, so your make-up won’t crease or smear even during the most strenuous exercise. This means you can work out and still look great. These state-of-the-art minerals are available in so many shades that there is one for every complexion.

blast from the


Yazu Hair Turning back time Kaye Briden from Yazu Hair Lounge was delighted to spend a day in Auckland at Fashion Week with the L’Oreal I.D Team off New Zealand to work on the fashion models hair for the Sabatinii show. Kaye says the hair trends coming through for Spring/Summerr 2011 are a blast from the past with 20s, 30s, late 50s and earlyy 60s styles, that will follow through to next fall as well. “Hair is big, lots of back combing and height around the crown.. Tongs were used on nearly every model with flicks everywhere.. Beautiful buns were big and hair was pulled back off the face.. Rows and rows of foils are out, one colour with soft panels,, beautiful reds, coppers and pure blondes are back,” says Kay. The make-up looks coming though were very fresh. Soft naturall skin and lips with darker smoky eyes or a contrast provide an alll natural look. Sadly the lovely old building that contained Yazu didn’t survive e February’s earthquake. However, Kaye has picked herself up and d is currently renovating the new Yazu Hair Lounge. The new décor or inspired by Grace Kelly and industrial New York will be unique e with a French parlour feel.

transform yourself

It’s spring - time to rejuvenate and freshen your skin for the warmer months. Before

Healthy, clear, smooth skin is the ingredient needed to look and feel your best. Transform Clinic focus on what you want and need. Improving skin quality is the first step in looking good – whether it be with treatment products, professional treatments such as microdermabrasion, laser or IPL treatments. As we age we lose volume in our faces – the most popular treatment of late is “volume enhancement” where dermal fillers are used to replace the lost volume. Another popular treatment is the “Botulinum facelift”, where small amounts of product are used over the face to improve the smoothness of the skin and give a “lift” effect – the small amounts guarantee a natural result. There are also other treatments available to soften and improve the effects of aging, sun damage, unsightly blemishes, skin tags and moles. To compliment the full range of appearance medicine treatments, Transform Clinic offer a full range of beauty therapy treatments, including make-up for that special occasion, Dermatech treatment facials, waxing, electrolysis and massage. To find out what is best for you, go into Transform clinic for a complimentary consultation with their skin therapists or registered nurses. Transform Clinic is open six days, with late nights Monday to Thursday. They offer privacy, confidentiality and a highly professional service. Phone: 343 2880 or 0800 256 654 Email:

wear it Hottest trends





Step out in style this season and put your best foot forward in summer’s hottest footwear! Bright colours are everywhere this summer and colour blocking is one of the hottest shoe trends. It’s easy to update your look with a bright splash of colour. You can go all out in a bright coloured peep toe sandal or test the waters with a mix of colour and neutrals. This season also sees a return to 70s inspired footwear with platforms and wedges in new colours like mustard, burnt orange and tan. Styles range from sky-high heels perfect for hot summer nights through to more casual versions designed for lounging around the pool or beach.

Ziera Ziera

Pair your wedges with a cute pair of shorts or skinny jeans. If they are patterned then keep your look simple and let your shoes shine! Flatforms – a new hybrid flat form of the platform, are set to be a huge hit this summer. They incorporate all the comfort of a sandal in a more fashion-forward design. n.


lar Wooden and corked heeled flatforms are very popular and these can be dressed up or down with ease. Try pairing them with a maxi dress or a short skirt forr a relaxed evening out. yful Boy meets girl is another fun trend. For a cute, playful ese look opt for loafers, desert boots and brogues. These ans can be teamed with playful dresses or cropped jeans his for a relaxed summer style. The great thing about this trend is that it’s transitional and will take you right ght through to autumn.

A strong design ethic and innovative energy has been combined to create a modern approach to dressing for summer.

This collection with its dynamic colours of tangerine, rust, deep pink, red and blue is so striking that it will update any wardrobe.

With the new season almost here men’s spring trends are in full bloom. The big theme this spring is change. So it’s time to be bold and switch it up with colours and themes that are sure to enhance your look and personality. A must have this spring is a bold coloured windbreaker (even if there is no wind) to add an edgy look, perfect for those hot days and windy nights. Also be sure to have some stripes in your wardrobe as they are making a comeback this season and the brighter the better. It’s great to get experimenting and what better way to do so than with stripes. Baggy is in… that is all. Forget those skinny jeans and opt for a baggy, light weight pair of pants however don’t go overboard and lose your shape completely. A baggy pair of pants is perfect for those mild days where you can’t decide between shorts or long pants. The larger cut can be helpful and let your skin breathe on the hotter days. The colours for men this spring are more plain and basic. This creates a classic yet stylish look. Colour trends range from neutral creams, whites, greys, blues and tan to fluorescents. These simple colours are great to mix and match as you can wear a fluorescent colour as a statement piece with an outfit that is more neutral. Zambesi is suiting up for summer in black, nude and washed canvas. Baggy Oxford trousers are teamed with two or three buttoned jackets with patch pocket detailing for that extra edge. For a more casual approach indulge in athletic stretch cotton pants or baseball-jodhpur pants. Short-sleeved shirts in strong colour combinations are reversible and a must-have this season. Also a patch-shouldered army jersey in a cotton fisherman’s knit adds a fresh sense of luxury.
