Mermaids are the mythical creature of choice this season; whether it’s due to the shimmery sea sirens gracing the catwalk for Rodarte’s SS15 collection, or simply because nothing catches the sun better than a tonne of sequins. Here’s a roundup of the shiniest metallic, holographic and sequin styles to make a big splash this summer…
