Designer looks from Brown Thomas for Spring/Summer 2016

Plus, Fashion Director Shelly Corkery gives her style tips for the season ahead.

Shelly’s tip: Monochrome is always a firm favourite, reworked here in the season key fabric – lace.

Navy stripe top, €920, white lace pencil skirt, €715, both Preen by Thornton Bregazzi

Shelly’s tip: Keep it simple with this minimalist dress which shows a playful take on new proportions.

Black oversize sleeveless dress, €340, Edit; burgundy sling-backs, €880, Stella McCartney

Shelly’s tip: Gone are sharp angular constructions as a modernist mood surfaces for SS/16. Think ‘simplexity’ with designers focusing on softly layered shapes and modern construction.

White oversize cotton shirt, €380, camel capri trousers, €440, both Helmut Lang; multi-colour camera bag, €320, Marc Jacobs; burgundy studded sandals, €605, Balenciaga

Shelly’s tip: This beautiful Erdem dress captures one of the most prominent themes this season – romantic, feminine dressing.

Navy floral print top, €685, matching skirt, € 1,215, both Erdem; jewelled leaf necklace, €130, Max Mara

Shelly’s tip: Eccentric Maximalism appeals to the peacocks amongst us and this stunning dress from Peter Pilotto focuses on intricate embellishment.

White embroidered dress, €1,295, Peter Pilotto; copper star flatforms, €695, Stella McCartney

Shelly’s tip: This covers two key trends this season — bright, bold colour and asymmetric necklines.
