Heatwave Cool

It’s easy to lose track of fashion trends when the temperature rises well above our comfort level. With a heatwave often comes the desire to strip down to the bare basics and wear simple, loose clothing; but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear items that make you look just as good as you feel.

During a heatwave we recommend gravitating towards easy, flowy dresses, that give a little breathing room. Not only will you look “heatwave cool” but you’ll feel it too; because how else can you stay cool while having a picnic in the park or roaming the city streets in 30-degree weather?!

Currently on sale at VAM is an assortment of light and breezy dresses perfect for any occasion – whether you’re looking to dress up or down. (Editor’s note: you can snag a few of these items at 50% off this weekend only!)
See you at the shop shortly! – VAM xo

Spring Colours

“Colors this season transport us to a happier, sunnier place where we feel free to express a wittier version of our real selves.”

With the temperatures rising to the double digits, we couldn’t be any more excited to peel off the layers and start wearing softer and brighter colors. This got us thinking about the latest color trend for spring.
Twice a year for the fashion industry Pantone releases a list of top 10 colors that we can expect to see and wear the most in the coming seasons. These are usually compiled by colour experts from around the world who talk to a number of designers and pay close attention to the latest trends. This spring you can expect to see colors that are calming and peaceful, with a few bold and playful hues. For those of you who like to stay on trend, you’ll be happy to hear you can find fashionable pieces in each of these colours here at VAM! Think light and flow dresses in soft colours perfect for those warmers spring/summer days.
