Finally, it feels like summer is in the (Scottish) air. With talk of the holidays and staycations we’re all trying to plan, the new-season fashion trends bubbling up, and general enthusiasm for the re-opening of our world, summer style is all the @Forge retailers can talk about right now! If you’re not sure what to wear as you re-emerge into the great outdoors once the warm-ish weather hits, have a read about what’s made the cut for @josiesmithmedia from the Forge’s clothing stores this week. From traditional, classic wardrobe basics to eye-catching summer dresses, there’s something for everyone under one dry roof here in the Gallowgate. We’re enthused that the future, and fashion looks bright!

These chino shorts will make a smart and stylish addition to your new season wardrobe. In a versatile dark blue colour cotton fabric, a zip fly plus two side pockets and two hidden back pockets, they’re perfect for sunny weather. The best bit is they come in 6 different colours so you can invest in a few pairs! (Product code: 4701488-C07/100% Cotton/Machine Washable)
QUIZ @ £36.99
This animal print dress with a square neckline is from the Quiz Petite Collection (sizes 8-18 available). It features a puff sleeve, split front and is approx. 110cm in length. Trends come and go, but there are some that will inevitably reappear forming the cornerstones of our wardrobes. Animal print is one such ‘wildly’ favoured pattern/trend that dutifully and regularly returns. Once worn by our parents and our grandparents before them, it still feels as relevant as ever.
