Stylist Tanya Levak shares what's trending this Summer!
Resident Narellan Town Centre Stylist, Tanya Levak shares the top 5 fashion trends for this Summer 16.
1. SUMMER FLORALS
Summer florals are the essence of feminie charm. Whether you opt for 90’s grunge mini style or an oversized 60’s bright floral print they are the perfect compliment to any womans summer wardrobe. Floral prints can be worn many ways dressed up or dressed down as it's a versatile print that works perfectly on all body shapes. Because the floral print does most of the talking to the outfit, accessories should be very subtle and paired back with block coloured sandals, fresh white trainers or a wedge.

2. OFF THE SHOULDER
Currently one of the hottest looks this season is off-the-shoulder tops and dresses dropping into stores. They have a hint of Bohemian luxe to them due to the soft and relaxed cuts. This trend has great appeal to the individual that wants to show off a sexy summer glow but still remain modest and covered up.
When it comes to styling think tops half tucked into denim pencil skirts for a relaxed summer vibe and for floaty dresses opt for a stack-heeled sandal to give extra length.

The official fabric of a laid-back summer could be limited to the classic Chambray. Being one of the most versatile and timeless staples every girl should have in her wardrobe.
The colour and texture of chambray make it the perfect material to wear this summer and best of all it is trans-seasonal and can be layered when the weather starts to get cool. It also combines a style that has subtle masculinity, practicality and style in an easy-to-wear design that can transition you from morning drop-offs, to the office (if it’s more low key) and drinks with the girls. For the summer, pair your chambray shirts open over a basic tee or tank, or accessorise your dresses with paisley print scarf, tan shoes and bags. For skirts and shorts keep it classic with floaty gypset blouses and block coloured frilled tops. No matter how you style your summer chambray you will find it a piece of clothing you won’t be able to take it off this season.

Keep it classic though when styling these loud Aztec prints pairing with fresh white basics and simple block coloured clothing. This lets the main focus be on the crazy fun print.
