Seen at Giorgio Armani, Givenchy and Dior, flounced hemlines are ultra-feminine and can elevate your midi skirts and straight shift dresses with a touch of pizzazz while keeping it delicately restrained.

All the more appropriate for Breast Cancer Awareness month, pinks of all hues—from pale blush to salmon pink—is all the rage now, spotted at Chanel's jacket-skirt combos, Versace's casual culottes and Emporio Armani's tailored rompers.

 

Pretty pleats

Cruise 2016's pleats are reinterpretated in various ways that are suitable for both a formal and breezy beach setting, from Bottega Veneta's multicoloured pleats to give an illusion of stripes, to Gucci and Chanel's midi and ankle-length skirts. 

 

Tailored pantsuits

There's nothing else that channels sophistication while looking professional at the same time quite like a well-tailored pantsuit. Make full use of separate pieces for traveling, as a formal jacket or pair of high waisted trousers can always come in handy.

 

Vacay-ready tropical prints

A consistent trend that's usually present in Cruise collections, bird-of-paradise and palm tree prints were an abundance this season at Fendi, Elie Saab, Proenza Schouler and Marc Jacobs—all in vibrant hues that could work for Friday's pared-down work outfit or a day out exploring an island.
