Are you looking to update your wardrobe with the best summer fashion trends? Why not take inspiration from Ireland this season? Irish fashion is making waves, combining rich heritage with modern style. In this roundup, you’ll see why Irish charms are a must-have for summer.

Bright summer hues combined with snug layers for those cooler Irish summer days — the latest collection from Ireland’s Eye Knitwear is a wardrobe essential.

New vibrant Summer fashion trends

The latest colour range brings an exciting palette: vibrant tomato red, soft pale blue, warm burnt orange, rich Claret, and lovely Rosa pink. From cardigans to sweater vests, each piece is made without a hint of scratchy wool, delivering pure luxury. These are actual investment pieces that will last you through the seasons.

Looking to turn heads? The stunning Cúpla x Madigan collaboration by Elaine Madigan of the luxury cashmere brand Madigan and designer Elaine Honey appears on red carpets everywhere.

The seven-piece collection features the Bogha Blouse in ivory for €525 and the Balún Skirt in black for €650, crafted in-house from sumptuous silk taffeta.

Dive into The Bronze Age thanks to Barbie and Ryan Gosling’s on-set tanning adventures; deeply bronzed skin is making a glamorous return. St Tropez, the iconic name in premium self-tanning, has just released its new Ultra Dark Violet Bronzing Mousse.

This summer fashion trend embraces a natural vibe with a violet base that neutralizes yellow tones. As more people opt for sunless tanning, it’s a fantastic addition to the thriving fake tan market.

Exciting events and parties in May

Annie Mac may have pioneered the daytime party scene, but Dublin’s legendary queer venue, The George, is embracing the trend with flair. Mark your calendars for next Sunday, May 26, as Mother & Absolut presents an all-day dance fiesta starting at 2 pm.

On May 21, BAR 1661, who took home the title of Ireland’s Bar of the Year in 2022, will make a special one-night appearance at Killarney’s latest hotspot, Pig’s Lane.

PepsiCo’s new extra spicy snacks

If you find Doritos Chilli Heatwave a bit too fiery, brace yourself. PepsiCo, the powerhouse behind beloved snacks like Doritos, Walkers, and Wotsits, has just rolled out a sizzling new Extra Flamin’ Hot range to turn up the heat this summer.

These chips pack a punch with jalapeño and smoked paprika, but a dollop of guacamole and sour cream will balance them out perfectly. They’re available at selected supermarkets across the country.
