I'm just about to weed my wardrobe and make a list for what to buy for this summer.

Could one of you fashionistas give me a quick summary of what's hot and what's not this season?

What shapes as well as patterns?

I'm late 40s, size 10-12 and 5ft 3in with biggish boobs - so nothing too outrageous please, but I like to look current.

Ideas for both work and leisure would be appreciated.

So far I've got:

shift dresses (already have some, so that's fine)
nautical (I have a couple of wide-legged linen trousers in navy and taupe - but is wide-legged an ok shape?)

Many thanks in advance!

animal prints
splash prints
florals on black grounds
white + bright
1 shoulder dresses
bandeau knee dresses
batwing sleeves/slash necks
jumpsuits -love the bandeau top ones
Hareem pants ( not great for petites)
hitch up hem details( for older should be slightly lifted so left and right are uneven)
Tulip shape skirts
slouch pants
Cobalt blue
always good to check out vogue website
Hope this helps

That's a big help thanks THK. I've done the chucking out bit, so am looking forward to the shopping now!

Some of the trends are definitely not for me - I'm too old and the wrong shape for hareem pants! Not sure about one shoulder dresses either.
