I cannot think of a more versatile team of clothing then the humble white T-shirt. Seriously what piece of clothing are you able to wear any day of the year, in any season. That said, it’s in the summer that white t-shirt truly becomes a wardrobe necessity, as it can anchor statement pieces such as wildly-printed shorts or colored jeans, take the formality out of work wear, add a casual element to silky, beaded, or even sequin skirts, just convey a sense of laid back summer style with a pair of blue denim cut-off shorts or jeans or nick your boyfriends oversized t-shirt chuck on some statement jewellery and voila you have a tunic dress.
Whether it’s a crisp cotton crewneck or the paper-thin slouchy styles made popular in recent season the white t-shirts are a must for your wardrobe.

What new season pieces are you adding to your wardrobe?
Floral prints, are a classic pattern and a stable in so many of our wardrobes. And as in nature it heralds the coming of Spring when flowers are in bloom and our senses are tantalise with beautiful smells and colour. So this coming Spring season whether it is daisies or roses make your floral tribute a memorable one!!
Flower designs range from dainty and delicate to big and bold, each kind carrying its own personality and character. Choose a pattern that works with your personal taste and style.
Do not pile on accessories when wearing striking prints as you want the print to shine.
Smaller and dainty prints can bring a feminine and romantic touch to a day or evening look.
If you want to make a statement then choose pieces with larger flowers, bright colors, vibrant designs and eye-catching details.
For a slimming effect opt for dresses with flowers going down the center as this will draw the eye in, creating a slimming illusion.
Floral prints typically come in multiple colors, giving you plenty of styling possibilities. So when pairing items, wear clothing in coordinating colors to create a cohesive look. This also gives you the option of creating different looks with just one item. So pay attention to the pattern's colors, and choose one or two, then work around it when pairing items.
Floral prints also look good with solid neutral shades. These colors include black, white, gray, taupe, ivory and beige. Pairing with neutrals are great if pairing with solid colors are too daunting for you and also if you do not want to pair pieces with any of the colors found in the actual print.
It is also easier to pair floral prints with neutrals, when you are not sure what to wear, but would like to add florals to your ensemble.
Floral accessories can add instant style and are one the simplest and easiest ways to introduce prints/ patterns to your wardrobe. Even just one accessory is enough to brighten up an otherwise plain outfit.
Larger items such as tote bags, hats and scarves can add major color to a look. Jewelry and belts brings a light dose of floral fun to any day look. So invest in a few flower patterned accessories, because you will never know when your outfit will need a little extra floral lift.

The 2016 Pantone colors are Rose Quartz and Serenity a soft mix of baby pink and baby blue.
Rose Quartz with its gentle tone conveying compassion and a sense of composure.
Serenity with its calming effect and sense of relaxation. Reminding us to always be mindful and in a constant state of happiness.
The secret to wearing Pantone 2016’s colors is to pair items to make up your own combination of the solid tones, rather than trying to find items with both of these shades in it. This does not mean that, you have to find one piece with both of these colors in it, instead try to mix and match items to create the same effect.
Pair with tailored silhouettes and rich textures to counter balance the delicate hues of sugary sweetness. Fabrics like silk make these two tones look really sophisticated.

Wear a heel with your flares:
The flare shape elongates your legs and a heel will take that illusion one step further. As well as minimize the risk of a bunched up hem.

A perfect hem:
With flares it is all about the hem. Go for a pair with a slightly longer length than the rest of the trousers in your wardrobe.

Opt for a high- waisted silhouette:
This is the most flattering fit, because any trousers that sits higher on the hips will enhance the leg-lengthening affect and give you a curvy silhouette. Add a belt for a more defined waist.
