Popular in the ’90s, this trend soon fell off the fashion radar. This season, it has been revived with a modern edge. So, you won’t be scoffed at anymore for wearing your jeans with a denim shirt or jacket. Pick from a more rugged combination of ripped jeans and washed jacket, or a smarter take with a slimmer pair and a slick shirt.
Thought pockets were functional? If you looked at the clothes designers sent out on the SS16 runways, you’d change your mind. In contrast prints and colours, and appearing at places you’d never imagined before, pockets are being used to add deft detailing to both vibrant and otherwise subdued wardrobe essentials. Look for them not just in shirts, but also vests, tees and jog pants.
Wear them for your morning run, in the gym, or to play a game of basketball with the boys on the weekend. Give your training gear a trendy update with this season’s athletic vests—slicker, fitter, and more stylish than their earlier avatars. With winter on its way out, it’s time to stock up on the gear and get into the fit mood.
A colour that you’d typically associate with winter, grey finds its way into spring collections. From comfortable lounge pieces like jog pants and hoodies, to fitted trousers, acid-wash denim shirts, and slim ties, this season, don’t use these shades to break your vibrant outfits. Instead, go with a complete grey-on-grey look. For a bold move, think contrasting patterns. Checked trousers with a striped shirt, anyone?
Make a statement. Not with a brightly printed shirt, or coloured chinos, but with a vibrant sweatshirt. This sporty layer has been taking tiny steps towards moving from the lower shelves of the wardrobe to the front pile. And this season, it has finally arrived. Movies, games night or even the bar, there’s a piece out there that will fit just in.
Can’t skate? Not a reason to skip wearing skater shoes. Made for skateboards, these chunky rubber soled shoes are downtime footwear made for pairing with everything from jog pants to denims and chinos. Go the extra mile and team them even with smart trousers and a blazer. Pick from simple canvas lace-ups, trendy leather ones with detailing elements, or those with a hint of pop colour.
