Grab your castanet’s senoritas and channel the drama and class of Spanish culture from bold red hues to toreador-esque flourishes. Introduce Flamenco ruffles, off the shoulder details and lace inserts to ignite your wardrobe from the low temperatures of England to a hot Summer on the streets of Barcelona! Be sure to get the balance between sharp and soft, contrasting angles against the playfulness of ruffles and pleats like we have here with a figure hugging leather skirt vs the soft ruffles in this black crop top. And with the weather heating up, dare to show a little bit of skin!

Fiery and fierce, red is bold and will have you centre stage. If you’re concerned this colour hue will leave you red faced, not everything you wear needs to scream out telephone box, a subtle hint can still have a strong impact. Why not introduce red into patterns you choose or through accessories? We love this beautiful Chamilia Splendour Silver Red Swarovski Crystal Bead from H.Samuel.

Give sleeves the cold shoulder and choose asymmetric necklines and cutouts to add interest and shape your silhouette. Experiment with cuts to find what suits your body. Off-the-shoulder shaping can take you all the way from boho chic to ultimate glam with some tiny tweaks, it’s all in the styling, fit and textures you choose. For the laid-back summer cool, just check the dresscode of the celeb hotspot, Coachella. Contrast simple styles like a classic bardot top and distressed denim with fun patterns, say yes to lace and crochet and lightly layer your textures. No bohemian look is complete without some oversized sunnies, catch their eye with these beauties from Zara.

Now for off-the-shoulder glam, because after all, shoulder bearing is sexy without being obvious. Staying true to this statement, keep it classic. A simple midi dress with a fitted shoulder baring neckline and killer heels will have you flamenco-ing with the best of them.
