Fashion: Summer 2004 Top 5 Must Have's

1.High Impact Colour
From shocking fuchsia to bright canary yellows, high impact colour takes centre stage for spring and summer 2004. Tone these colours down by pairing them with khaki, tan or beige. Play them up by wearing them together. While bights will look great with anything white once summer is officially here, be aware that these strong colours paired only with black can look a bit harsh and dated.

2.Black and White
For those not so keen on lots of colour, stick with this perennial favourite. While head-to-toe black has been looking more and more dated for the last couple of seasons, you can freshen up your warm weather black basics with a geometric print that combines black, white and, if you want, a shot of color.

3. Sling-Back Pumps
Chances are that the heavy leather pumps that looked great with your cool weather wardrobe are now looking drab and dowdy when worn with your lighter suits and dresses. Adding a few sling-back pumps - a dress shoe that is open and strapped in the back and closed in the front - will lighten your look while complementing your overall appearance.

4. Loops and Hoops
Big, bold accessories are back in style. Dangle hoop-style earrings - they can have as many hoops as you like - from your lobes or hang a chain belt around your waist for an instant accessory update this season. Many shoulder bags, necklaces and even bathing suits are featuring rings, hoops and loops right now.

5. Classic Pearls
If your accessory style is more traditional, load up on pearls. Always in style, they add beauty and elegance to most outfits. This season, the more pearls you wear, the more on-trend you'll be. For instance, layer different length pearl necklaces together and wear them with a suit or even jeans. We like the layered pearl look peeking out from under a jacket if you go the suit route or under a shirt jacket if you go the more casual route with them. In other words, don't make them the total focus of the outfit. Use them to add texture and sophistication in subtle yet significant ways. Worn in this fashion, they move from a conservative accessory option to a more sexy and modern choice.
