Full-on neon
The 80s were big on neon. But, we understand that an all-neon look can be a bit much. Play it smart by pairing your neutral blouse with statement and edgy accessories. To add a pop of colour, go for a neon green jacquard skirt that balances the ensemble without blinding your eyes.

Playful polkas
Polkas defined 50s fashion and they’re literally back every season. Instead of donning the usual polka dotted tea dress or top, play it up a bit with an unexpected pair of polka skinny jeans in a bright blue or salmon pink.

Flapper sequins
If you’ve watched The Great Gatsby a million times already, you know what we’re talking about. The quintessential 20s flapper dress has reinvented itself into a sexy sequinned number. Invest in a short number to show off those gorgeous legs.

Bold geometry
While circles, blocks and lines have taken a shape of their own in fashion chronology, the 60s inspired geometric look is only getting bolder. If you dare, sport a multi – coloured geometric crop top with a white skort or palazzos. Whatever the colours you are sporting in your top, pick one and wear solid pumps in the same to finish the look

Go big on sunnies
If you are as much a risk-taker as we are, you may want to spell retro with them cat-eyed sunglasses. They are right on trend and work all year round. Get inspired and go for the over-sized, feline ones in pop colours.
