Flaunt those tiny waists and cover yourself in shades of beige this summer...


Fabulous, flattering and fashionable, high waisted skirts are all the rage. Emphasising the right curves, this style creates the much sought after hour-glass silhouette perfectly. Spotted on runways and celebrities alike, this über lady-like trend is suitable for numerous occasions. From sophisticated working woman by day to beguiling fashionista at night, work this look to your advantage. Choose from a chic little black number by Namrata Joshipura to a dreamy ruffled piece from Moschino, or go for the classic pencil fit that is popular with Anupama Dayal and Calvin Klein.


Subtlety defines this trend. Amidst all the bright colours of summer, understated shades of beige succeed in making their own style statement. This elegant hue has been spotted in a number of variations, from classic Burberry cardigans and sheer tunics by Nikasha, to Boho Chloé dresses and gorgeous jewelled gowns by Rabani & Rakha. Beige accessories are a staple part of every fashion loving woman’s wardrobe. Essential ones this season include satin Dior peep-toe slingbacks, stunning woven Bottega clutches and trendy tortoiseshell sunglasses from Miu Miu.
