The key looks for S/S 14/15

By Laura Timberlake

Spring/summer is one of the greatest seasons to shop for. The increasingly-nice weather puts everyone in a good mood, and the holiday season looms just around the corner.

So, what are some of the key silhouettes to keep an eye out for this year?

A new, easy casual look this year is culottes. The shape is loose and flowing and the length sits between mid-thigh and mid-calf. You can find them at Topshop in a variety of prints.

Skorts are also an easy style that have made a big come back. If you don’t have a pair of these, seriously consider it! They are elegant like a skirt, but the short underside prevents an ill wind from flashing your undies to the world. Forever New has some lovely styles to choose from.

Oversize tees and singlets are another wardrobe staple this summer. To create interest, many designers have added unusual prints or detailing to their garments. Sass and Bide have a beautiful range, or try Cotton On for a more affordable variety.

Sports de Luxe styles are also still going strong, which is great news when it comes to comfy pants. Look for loose and fluid pant styles, in a wide leg or harem pant. Zara has plenty of styles to choose from.

The most exciting silhouettes are in the dress styles, though. Playsuits are still making an appearance, and are fabulously easy to dress up or down. (Check out the styles available at Dotti.)

Another fantastic trend is the tiered front/frilled top maxi dress. This style is a must-have for those 40 degree days where you just want to slip on something loose (preferably in a light cotton). The top picks are at Cotton On.

Chunky shoes are a final must-have for the season. Sandals with a wedge or platform are the comfiest day to night option, and the espadrille is a key flat shoe for the season. Windsor Smith offers a great twist on the classic espadrille – they have added a platform!

The best part about a lot of the key trends this season is that they are so comfortable. Stylish plus comfortable can only equal one thing – a great summer ahead!
