Trends for Spring/Summer 2005 give the option of a soft or serious approach.


Shapes and curves are a must with the short jacket and high waist looks. A little structure can instantly create a professional and ‘to be taken seriously’ image. However, be careful, it is important to successfully achieve this look that you are at least medium height, to tall. It does not work well for petite women it can make you look short and stubby, so avoid and have fun with other styles this season. It is better typically, not accessorise this look, and leave the statement in the cuts. Recommended brands to achieve this look:
