The sun’s out now! You can start packing away your big coats, drop the scarves and start on creating that perfect summer look.We’ve taken inspiration from the showiest of the animal kingdom and are ‘peacocking’ our way into retro, sports-luxe fashion!

Now we are fully aware that some brands tried this iridescent look on their most recent runways and whilst it may not have worked for them (at all), we’ve put together a few example looks from brands that are doin’ it, and doin’ it, and doin’ it well. That’s an LL Cool J reference in case you were unsure.

Alright, let’s begin!
