In our trend series, ELLE editors highlight the key trends and key looks for the new season.


The re-emergence of the mini silhouette reorients the focus towards the glitz of the Sixties. Not only was the daring short length creating a revolution at that time, but also embellishments reflected the time of glamour. We’re seeing the trend make a reappearance on the runway, paying homage to Grace Kelly, and Jane Birkin living that nonchalance.

Lightweight tones at Versace and Valentino add that fresh glow to the skin. The sparkling details at Tory Burch and Swarovski crystals at Gucci reflect the sunshine and make us feel like jet-set queens.

Here are our favorite looks!
