Rosalilium’s Guide to Summer Fashion Trends

It’s so easy to be caught out by the arrival of summer. The sun comes out and you suddenly discover that your summer wardrobe is decidedly thin on the ground, leaving you in a bit of a fashion no mans land!

To help you avoid this annual fashion conundrum and any summer fashion faux pas we invited style and lifestyle blogger Elizabeth Sellers from Rosalilium to select her picks of this summer’s top styles from New Square’s fashion stores, which she has modelled for us at New Square. She’s also given her expert guide to what to look for to make sure you’re bang on trend.  Summer style here we come!

Elizabeth Sellers from Rosalilium “This summer is all about brights, floral and quirky details such as strapless tops, cut out shoulders and subtle metallics. My top tip is to push yourself out your comfort zone and pick a new addition to your wardrobe that is fun for the summer.”

Festival Chic

“No-one’s going to lose you in the crowds at the festivals this summer when wearing this gorgeous bright yellow anorak. I chose a cheerful combination of cornflower blue and primrose yellow to get into the fun, free-spirited vibe of the summer. The dress is loose, cotton and comfortable to wear, super important when the temperatures start heating up.”
