The summer is upon us and it’s time for our wardrobe to match the heat of the months ahead. After tapping into the spicy trends witnessed on the runway, colour is not something to shy away from this summer. In fact, vibrant hues should certainly be on the radar for both men and women this season. This global trend includes fiery, lively colours that will undoubtedly spice up any wardrobe—and there are boundless ways to take part in this trend!

Pairing a blazing jacket with vivid bottoms is a trendy way to colour-block with exotic, punchy hues. This bold look includes the combination of multiple vibrant colours—an effortless modern way to create a major impact

This summer, bold and vivid are themes that should surround everyone’s style. This is an excellent time to embrace colour, prints and expressive patterns like: floral printed T-shirts, ocean-blue jackets, and even hot-orange blazers! Statement accessories like festival-inspired fringe earrings, stark white platform sandals and brilliant, blue knit shoes will add zest and flare to your chic ensemble. Using your wardrobe as an outlet for charismatic expression is a fabulous way to explore your own style—and what better time to do so than when the summer trends are undeniably fashion forward?!

Each piece in our Get the Look guide is curated for you to dress in a spicy style this summer and is available here in Windsor.
