This Season

Spring/Summer 2018/19: celebrate!

In these strange and uncertain times, our designers remind us that life and beauty are precious and worth celebrating. Their Summer 2018/19 collections feature lush prints, tailored denim, silks and lots of sparkle. The result is joyful, quirky and ultra-cool.

This season, think slip dresses, pencil skirts and gauzy layers. There's a definite '80s influence in structure and silhouette. Florals continue to be on trend, especially for dresses, and look out for checks—these made a big impression on the Northern Hemisphere summer catwalks.

Colours range from  gelato-inspired pastels like pistachio and pink through to electric, paint-box brights in blue, red, violet, and canary yellow. Khaki shades  and dark denims also feature, along with stylish perennials black and white.

Embellishments are key this season. In keeping with the party mood, dance the summer nights away in sequins, fringes, appliqué and sexy ruffles.

Waist belts, large totes and the humble bum bag rule on the accessories front, while chunky sneakers and white ankle boots have been stand-outs on the catwalks.

At Karen Jordan | Style, we only stock garments that we know will suit our Top of the South lifestyle, so let's work together to create a flattering summer style that you will love.
