Inspiration: The girl who knows how to navigate a surfboard is riding high on fashion’s radar. SS12 is the season to make waves in sporty separates that have sea-inspired details flowing right through them.
Palette of choice: Aqua, lemon, pink and seaweed are set against bright white and deepest navy. Think tropical fish, sugary seashells and faded neon.
The details: Mermaid metallics, pearly beading and scale-like sequins are styled up with Aztec-inspired prints, graphic embroidery and watery ombre.
Must-have pieces: A bomber jacket and sequin skirt brings surf-to-the-city, silk running shorts and a sequin tee are fashion’s favourite new combo, while a chunky ombre knit and A-line skirt must be teamed with the not-to-be-missed flat-form.
Why we love it: We’ve never seen sporty shine so bright! Metallics, beading and patterns have us in their lure and should be mixed-and-matched in a carefree surfer-girl manner.
