Cult $100 tee that’s selling out

Puffy sleeves, pastel tees and power suits - summer style is well and truly coming.

And after a year where leggings and oversized hoodies became the unofficial working from home uniform, it's time for a wardrobe refresh, complete with bike shorts (a la Hailey Bieber), power blazers, and cut-outs fit for a Hadid.

So what trends-of-the-moment should you be looking to add to your close ahead of the socially distant summer and party season?

Vogue Australia senior fashion editor Philippa Moroney said voluminous sleeves, prints-on-prints, cut-outs and lightweight suiting were key trends of the upcoming season.

"A summer suit is a great example of a look that will work hard for you this summer, a pink suit is great with a T-shirt and sneakers for day during the week," Moroney said.

"For a fun weekend look, swap the shirt out for a crop top. And a splice of skin and a strappy mid heel for a summer weekend look," she added, citing brands like Aje, camilla and marc and Scanlan Theodore.

As for accessorising, model Bambi Northwood-Blyth said "always chooses to go the opposite".

"So if it's a loud colour, maybe it's a plain sneaker, or colourful shoes, maybe a little white dress - (it's about) balancing," Northwood-Blyth said.

Lauren Ormaechea, spokeswoman for fashion chain H&M, said linen-on-linen was one of the must-have trends for summer.

Tonal dressing "with an earthy palette of rust, khaki and tobacco" would feature, along with "dramatic, volume puff sleeves giving a nod to the 1980s," she said.

Look out for utility too, with "tied waists and external pocket details".

Enter Vogue Fashion's Night In, an 11-day virtual event featuring discounts and styling sessions aimed at serious summer inspo.

The program features a trends masterclass from Vogue and H&M on October 28 (Wednesday) and a virtual runway from David Jones on October 30 (Friday).

As part of Vogue Fashion's Night In, Vogue and Bassike have unveiled their annual limited edition organic cotton T-shirt ($100).

A versatile addition to a spring/summer wardrobe, Moroney suggested teaming the tee with "a great utility short and chunky sandal for a cool summer look".

"Or wear yours with a skirt and blazer for a play on masculine feminine dressing," she advised.

And how does Northwood-Blyth wear hers? "With denim, but I think matching it with white pants, linen or just a bikini. It's summer in Australia, carefree," she said.

Vogue Fashion's Night In is on until November 1. For full details and discounts, see vogue.com.au.
