The Style Hawker: Spring and Summer Trends to Wear now!

StylePost Category - StyleStyle - Post Category - Style For YouStyle For You

The Style Hawker (celebrity stylist Annabel Kerman) is here to tell you how to rock 2016’s spring/summer trends like a boss, mama!

If the start of the year is a time to edit and cull our wardrobes, then Spring is the time to restock: We’ve cleared some space and are primed to replenish with lovely new season pieces that are just coming into store.

Summer is naturally the easier season to grapple with when we live in the dessert. Not to mention the fact that we can launch ourselves into some of the more high summer new trends months before our friends in chillier locations, which is surely something to feel smug about (even if it is simply down to latitude and longitude coordinates).

Here’s the lowdown on new trends you should be trying NOW. Pieces that will enhance your wardrobe, and your life, for spring summer 2016 (shallow, us?) And most importantly trends that are achievable while juggling busy lives.

For gym bodies the 90s-inspired spaghetti strap slip is huge news. For the rest of us, the pyjama suit or kimono-style wrap both tick the ‘resort dressing’ box, plus are surprisingly successful throw-ons for time-stretched mums.

stripes ss 16


There’s nothing like a perky stripe to inject a Riviera vibe into our spring wardrobes, and stripes are THE super trend of S/S 2016. Go big and bold this season, and don’t be scared to mix yours with spots or florals. Perfect in the sunshine.

The Shoulder

The new erogenous zone, the shoulder is a refreshing body part to be flashing, not least because it doesn’t require us to suck anything in. It also just feels ‘right’ in our climate of constant summer. Look for interesting cut-outs for maximum fashion cred.

The big news is that after what feels like a lifetime the spray on jean has officially lost its crown, to a looser, more feminine shape. It feels positively revolutionary. Make the most of the ever-so-slightly cooler weather at this time of year to tick this ever so practical trend early on.

My loyalty to gold is long held, but this season silver rules. Beat the February blues with a silver purchase that will take you through the summer and act as an instant outfit brightener. Plus your preschool daughter will think you rock.

Shoulder Duster Earrings

A trend couldn’t be more right in Dubai, where the simple shift begs to be accessorised. Update your look in seconds with a pair of the new statement earrings: Go big, bold and as long as you dare.

From Glastonbury-esque tiaras to head scarves and headbands, the catwalks were full of hair decoration. For all of us who fight a losing battle with the Dubai frizz, a hair accessory is the perfect distraction.
