Fresh and squeaky clean, white is one of the most versatile colours, and an extremely useful one to contrast other shades against. Whether you want to ace monochrome, or create a youthful summer look by pairing it with pastels, white pieces form the base of every wardrobe when the weather begins to heat up. If you’re up for a bold outfit, try white-on-white.
On-trend, practical and super comfortable, espadrilles are arguably summer’s most-essential footwear. Once reserved for Mediterranean locales and beach towns, this laid-back style has travelled far to find a comfortable spot even in cities miles away from the sea. And of course, adopted new patterns, colours and prints to become the even more desirable. Wear them with jog pants, shorts or just swimwear, for they’ll add loads of style to everything.
First came the military-inspired camouflage print that got reinterpreted in various designs and colours. While the pattern continues to remain a keeper, it’s the base colour that has emerged a true winner, this season. Season-appropriate and surprisingly versatile, this shade will make a welcome addition to any warm-weather wardrobe. From T-shirts and jog pants to chinos, shoes and even accessories, give your outfit a hint of earthy tones with camo green.
From nautical-inspired Breton styles to the banker-staple pinstripes, this classic pattern has always had a special place in men’s wardrobes. This summer, they’ve been given a new lease of life on the runway, and the streets. Play with colour, width and overlaying prints, to push the linear shape into new territories, or pack a bold punch with modern versions of the traditional pattern.
Easy to wear and versatile enough to be dressed up or down, the denim shirt is a key style that everyone should own this summer. If you’ve always known them as the washed out, rugged, worker-style piece, you’re in for a surprise. In a variety of washes and prints, and as full or half-sleeved versions, this trending piece works perfectly from the office to a bar, and even beyond as a light layer.
