With summer fast approaching, it’s important to know which key trends and styles to be investing in.
The best colours this summer
As seasons change, so do the colours in our wardrobe. Bold primaries are the key way to stand out this season. Designers like Iceberg, Paria Farzaneh and Craig Green did not shy away from bright primaries in their SS20 collections. Another colour making its way into the spotlight is Sage – a safer, yet equally, exciting colour to play with.
We would opt for this stunning sage polo shirt by Bottega Veneta, ideal for those summer gatherings
Clash patterns with confidence
Forget the rulebook when it comes to wearing patterns this summer, pattern clashing is a designers’ favourite this season. Confident mismatching of prints is the best way to make a statement with your outfits. With Versace being this trend’s trailblazer, why not pair their print silk shirt with some Gucci logo-webbed trousers, you’ll be sure to stand out from the crowd.
Rework, Reuse, Recycle
This year is not the year to be neglecting your boxy bowling shirt, as this is a huge trend and this season has introduced many styling options. To achieve a high-fashion look, allow your shirting to be free and unexpected. Alexander McQueen’s LFWM runway was littered with shirts left untucked and sleeves open.
Invest in a luxurious baroque bowling shirt by Gucci or rework your staple white formal shirt to be free flowing
How to style your suit
One thing you can always depend on is a well-tailored suit; this elegant classic will never go out of style. This summer, the classic meets couture- designers have given an abundance of options to rejuvenate your suit collection. Go exaggerated with your double-breasted blazer, or opt for a wraparound style blazer, or even be courageous and go bare-chested.
With the unpredictability of the British summer, it is important to make the most of those sunny days. Don’t be afraid to go ultra-short with your shorts this summer, we are seeing more and more designers embrace this trend. These Tom Ford swim shorts or these Prada Jersey shorts are the perfect addition to any summer wardrobe.
With sporty trends becoming increasingly prominent in high fashion, it is important to invest in some streetwear staples this summer. A huge ode to the likes of Oasis, the anorak jacket is back for a minute like this nylon anorak by Prada.
Also, what better to compliment this style than with a pair of chunky trainers for the ultimate Hypebeast look. Be bold with this pair of panelled suede trainers by Alexander McQueen.
It is clear from this season that trends are showcasing diversity and individualism amidst chaotic times across the world. The one mantra to follow this summer is, be bold and be you.
