Rich colours, detailed prints, and jewellery for every part of the body. The season’s trends have taken an Eastern turn and we’ve been treated with some stunning Indian inspired summer wears.

With such choice of beautiful paisley prints, bindis and headpieces it can be easy to go OTT and look like a vintage Bollywood reject! The key here is to keep it simple and throwing in just one piece to your outfit, however big or small that may be!

Bloggers do it best! From left Heidi in a bindi wearing a modernised playsuit with scattered mirror embroidery. Naomi makes a bold statement in all-over paisley with layering and colour contrast, while Elaine keeps it soft with dusky pink lace and a gold head chain as a finishing touch.

1,2,3- easy! This look can be effortless, take your dominant print and make a feature of it! Minimal layering and accessories is a must with such bold colours and patterns. We love the vintage worn Ganesh inspired tee and this retro Bollywood print skirt as statement items.

Just as eye-grabbing, an alternative is to go light and basic with soft layering and muted colours, to then pile high the accessories! Luckily we have a huge choice this season, with multifunctional pieces from nose-to-ear chains, belly chains and full body harnesses- jewellery has never been so fun!
