THE LIT­TLE WHITE DRESS WILL AL­WAYS HAVE A PLACE IN THE WARDROBE

Life & Style Weekend - - MAGAZINE | FASHION - WORDS: AN­NIE CAUGHEY

Right now at the North Park­lands of By­ron Bay, more than 40,000 pun­ters are partying away at the iconic Splen­dour in the Grass mu­sic fes­ti­val.

Each year, so­cial-me­dia in­flu­encers, blog­gers and fash­ion­istas take their Splen­dour out­fits as se­ri­ously as the mu­si­cians take their per­for­mances.

Chances are, if you’re read­ing this, you’re not at Splen­dour. But never fear be­cause the event marks the be­gin­ning of the glo­ri­ous fes­ti­val sea­son.

That means there are lots of fun times ahead and out­fits in need of plan­ning.

With spring just around the cor­ner, Week­end Mag­a­zine reached out to two lo­cal fash­ion bou­tiques, Shine and Billy J, to find

out their pre­dic­tions of what trends we will be tak­ing to mosh­pits through­out sum­mer.

The ver­dict? They say we’ll be look­ing pretty in white.

An el­e­ment of boho style will al­ways have a place in the festy-fash­ion world and the girls at Billy J Bou­tique say a white, bell-sleeved, linen num­ber is both easy and stylish to wear. Pair it with brown cow­boy boots and a laid­back hairstyle such as a loose braid.

The girls at Shine Bou­tique reckon the sum­mer festy sea­son will be all about girly vibes. This means the lit­tle white dress is back in the limelight. Think frills, cro­chet and tex­tured pat­terns.

Try match­ing this style with state­ment sun­glasses and a woven bag.

Will the clas­sic band-t ever go out of fash­ion? The an­swer is no. So it’s never too late to jump on the trend. Match with a cro­chet skirt to bal­ance that edgy look with a fem­i­nine twist.

To add more zest to the out­fit match it with a stud­ded belt.

1 Jane set, white $79: Shine Bou­tique. 1

2 Nora skirt, cream $45: Shine Bou­tique. 2

3 Reese dress $64.95, Acler boots $99.95 3 and East­side braided-edge bag $49: Billy J Bou­tique.
