When the days get longer,
the stars shine brighter,
your hair gets lighter,
the water gets warmer,
the music gets louder
and life gets better."

Ah, the warmer weather is upon us! Summer is the perfect time to spice up your wardrobe with fun prints, colour and cool and comfortable cuts.
Instantly eye-catching, patterns and prints can quickly lift an outfit. But you can start simply. If you feel like co-ord sets or bold pattern and prints all over are not for you, the best way to introduce a hint of pattern fun to your wardrobe is to keep your detailed item to one key piece. Think pairing statement wide leg pants with your favourite staple button through shirt and you're on the right track.
BUT if you love bright, bold and the matchy trend, look what we have in store for you!
Offering a playful vibe while maintaing a simple elegance, a matching set is the epitome of comfort meets sophistication. Inherently stylish, co-ord sets create a visual impact and are the perfect fuss free dressing. With co-ords, a matching go-to outfit is at your fingertips and requires very little tweaking in terms of further styling. What's more, while co-ord sets are designed to be worn together, they also offer wardrobe versatility by mixing and matching with other favourites.
Spice up your wardrobe this season with a fun patterned co-ord set. From casual shirt and short sets to special occasion tops and skirts, Jipsi Cartel is bursting with fun colour and pattern this summer.

If the sets are just not for you, perhaps a vibrant print dress is more alluring. Dresses carry a timeless quality and often make a statement while remaining a dependable wardrobe staple.
Dress silhouettes can be incredibly flattering on the body. A perfect cut paired with a fresh summer print is an easy, comfortable and stylish way to add a little spice. Much like co-rd sets, dresses also offer effortless styling. A true throw-on-and-go piece that simultaniously offers vitality and glamour.

Of course, the key to enlivening any outfit is to accessorise. Sometimes spice simply comes from adding sunnies, a hat or jewellery. So play. Have fun with the richness of summer colour and energy. You do you!
