Metallics are all the rage this season. When it's raining in June but you don't want to compromise on seasonal colours, metallics are the easiest way to make the days brighter. Invest in a high impact rain mac for the festival circuit or introduce a shimmery skort to your party wear collection. Directional, futuristic and spring ready, this trend is ideal for rain, shine and every climate in-between.

Unleash your playful, colourful side this summer with sugary handbags. It's true that pastels are no secret in the fashion world, they come back around time and time again in the form of playsuits, lace dresses and crop knits. Nonetheless, this year handbag designers are honing in on the Neapolitan craze and giving classic styles a burst of egg shell blue, candyfloss pink, ginger orange- or perhaps a mix of all 3.

Add a splash of peach to your usual monochrome ensemble with a Modalu tote bag such as the Artemis Shopper in melon. A roomy bag with capacity to hold payday purchases or errand buys- it's ideal for shopping in style. And if you're looking for something a little more daring, it also comes in azure blue.

The slogan top enjoyed its fair share of the limelight some 4 years ago, and now it's back with a vengeance. Like a temporary tattoo, celebrities everywhere are championing the slogan revival, whether it's Millie Mackintosh's 'no photos please' t-shirt or Naomi Campbell's risqué 'Naomi hit me' pullover, celebs are leading the slogan parade.

Whether you like to wear your heart on your sleeve or not, there are plenty of ways to channel the look. Say it with a voguish Celine tee, loud statement jacket or understated knit piece.

And there we have it, 3 key trends for SS '14. How will you be championing this season's key trends?
