Inspired by the sultry sophistication of the 50s, this trend is a contemporary take on old-school glamour. Stylish dresses with nipped in waists, luxurious ornate fabrics and floral embellishments are the key styling direction for this trend.

Color Direction

Opt for elegant curls and voluminous waves to achieve the seductive OPULENT trend look.

Fashion Direction
This look celebrates the icons that defined the 60s. 'BEAT ICONS' wear pixie boots, cropped trousers and mono stripes, rocking modern androgyny and urban cool.

Color Direction
Any shade of blonde suits a BEAT ICON. Go for smudged re-growth; a modern take on the '90s grown-out lightener look.

Styling Direction
Precise cutting and clean lines with natural texture and a polished sheen keep style icons on beat.

Fashion Direction
Color-popping, cupcake grunge – this trend features a 'mix and un-match' style, ideal for the non-conformist. With self-expression and individual flair, the COLORAMA trend takes cues from the kooky outsider.

Color Direction
Less is never more with this trend! Create a bold statement with all over neon vibes, or go for a kaleidoscope of color in the mid-lengths and ends to complete the COLORAMA look.

Styling Direction
COLORAMA is all about individual style, think textured random shapes for that punky DIY feel.
