See below a recap of the enex Style Series – Style Counsel edition and visit the enex Youtube channel for more on the enex Style Series and how you can incorporate style into your everyday life.

New Romantic:

Think pastels, scarves and flowing fabrics. The New Romantic style can be mimicked in a casual or cocktail outfit. See below two completely different approaches you could take this Summer.

Sports Lux:

Gone are the days of having to change between workouts and brunch. Active wear has made its way to the catwalk and we love it. You can make your outfit fun by adding a cute metallic cap and some dressy outwear or embrace the leggings and choose a bold pattern rather than the usual black. With brands such as Gorman and Decjuba launching active wear ranges, there is no excuse for drab.

Colour Pop:

Add colour to your outfit this season. If you like colour to be subtle, simply choose an A-line skirt or shorts that have a colourful weave and team them with neutrals such as a white peplum top and shoes. For those who like the bold approach, go all out and colour block clothing and accessories, and don’t be scared to mix in pattern to your look.


A classic trend that can be interpreted in so many different ways. Incorporate florals into your style, paired with plain items such as basic tees and accessories. Another great way to add floral to your look is through the fabric itself. try finding a floral lace dress- they are a hot item this Spring/ Summer.
