The sun is finally shining so work this season’s key trends

Need to update your wardrobe for those warmer days? We’ve teamed up with leading retailer DV8 to give you some top tips on the biggest style trends for summer 2012.

Eye-popping colours in Aztec and floral prints are key looks this season and, for a classic vibe, spots and stripes take centre stage. The biggest colour trends are red, blue, white, yellow and coral, and for a great retro look try bralet tops and highwaist pants in these shades. Many of us will be heading off on holiday soon, or hoping to enjoy some of the better weather here at home.

Either way smart fashionistas are clearing space on the rails for shorter shorts, cropped tops and lighter dresses.

To go casual match your summer outfits with Converse trainers or a stout pair of boots. Or glam things up with heels in contrasting bold colours.

For boys, the essential look for summer includes coloured chino shorts, plimsolls and striped T’s.

All clothes and accessories featured are from DV8, which has stores across Northern Ireland and a shopping website at:
