Couturing round up all the hottest trends from the runway to have you looking your best this season.
Black and White: Monochrome, Geometric Stripes and Blocks
Basque, Seafolly, Cue
Designers are loving black and white this season. Whether it’s in geometric prints, white suits enhanced with black accessories, or a mix of black and white separates, this is a great trend to invest in as this classic colour combo will never go out of fashion.
Brands: Maticevski, Jayson Brunsdon Black Label, Wayne by Wayne Cooper, Hi THere from Karen Walker, sass & bide, Manning Cartell, Cue and Charlie Brown
Florals: Bold and Bright Colours

Florals are the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather. This season, designers have favoured floral patterns in bold, bright colours. Dresses are presented in floaty and flirty silhouettes, and can easily be transitioned from day to night with a statement belt and high heels. For those wanting to make a bold statement, designers such as Jayson Brunsdon have matching separates which can be worn together to stand out from the crowd.
Brands: YB J’AIME, Fleur Wood, Jayson Brunsdon Black Label and Nicola Finetti
Geometric and Animal Print: Shapes, Stripes, Bold Colour
Manning Cartell, YB J’AIME, Cue
This season, geometric patterns and animal prints are taking center stage. Yeojin Bae nails the animal print trend with beautiful dresses and tailored separates. Manning Cartell and Cue have embraced the geometric trend, offering midriff exposing designs, not for the faint-hearted.

Kosmos: Digital Print and Pastel Colours
Charlie Brown, Aurelio Costarella, Ellery
Bold prints inspired by resort wear and electric summer sunsets will have you standing out this season. Stay cool by the pool in gelati-inspired pastels from Cozi, Wayne Cooper and Ellery. Aurelio Costarella has you sorted for formal wear, with beautiful embellished gowns and following maxi dresses.

Blue suits are the key trend in menswear for this season. Myer has you sorted whether you are looking for something formal or casual. Dom Bagnato and Arthur Galan have presented dark indigo and ink options which are perfect for the races, with Autonomy offering mint and aquamarine options perfect for lounging by the pool or bar.
Bucking the skinny leg trend this season, denim is rough and ready, and light and loose. Denim is the must have item for men this season. Look to G-Star, Levi’s Diesel and Autonomy for a great selection of on trend pieces.
Suiting is light this season, both in colour and material. For men who still want to look sharp during the warmer months, look to Arthur Galan and Tommy Hilfiger for your suiting fix. A colour palette based around red, white, navy and black has a very European influence which will have you not only looking hot, but staying cool.
As the weather heats up, Myer has well and truly established its position as one of the hottest places to shop this season.
