Summer has arrived at last, so what better time to try out some amazing new style ideas: Here are some fabulous new looks to embrace this season.
Channel the 70’s
If you’ve browsed through fashion magazines recently you’ll have noticed that 70’s vibes are flowing around everywhere. Heavily linked to festival fashion, the 70’s trend is certainly one to embrace this summer. Swap skinny jeans for flares, go for the fringed look with jackets, skirts and bags, try out folk-style patterns and get your hands on some suede threads. If you’re excited to nail the 70’s trend without looking like you’ve stepped straight out of an old film, choose more subtle touches like crisp, white blouses with vintage wash flares. Wear with a tasselled bag and give yourself and try out cat’s eye make up to pay homage to the era.
Into the blue
Blue is the colour of the moment and there are shades to suit everyone’s skin tone. From delicate aquamarines and powder blues to bright cobalt and nautical navy, it’s so easy to work this trend into your summer look. Blue matches lots of other colours and looks beautiful when teamed with white in the summer months. Consider adding a blue blouse or cami to a pair of fitted white jeans, or match striking blue accessories with a white dress for the ultimate summer look.
Anyone for crochet?
Crochet was huge news on the spring/summer catwalk shows this year and it’s an easy, comfortable look to master. Team a crochet vest or cami with a pair of denim shorts for a festival look or wear a crochet waistcoat over a plain white t-shirt and patterned cigarette trousers for a casual daytime outfit. You could also wear a crochet midi dress with jewelled sandals for a romantic date or weekend away.
All at sea
Nautical is big news this season, so why not add some stripes, crisp whites and blue hues to your clothing collection? Match plain white tees with navy and white striped shorts and tan deck shoes for a cool smart-casual look or work the trend into your office wardrobe by complementing your Jasper Littman navy suit with a striped tie and matching pocket square. Around the pool, have some fun with anchor and boat prints.
Summer is the season to be bold and have fun, so embrace the tropical nights and channel those vacation nights when creating your capsule wardrobe. Choose printed patterns and bright colours, swap trousers for tailored chino-style shorts and put on a pair of shades for good measure. If you’re jetting off on holiday, you’ve got the perfect excuse to add some brave options to your wardrobe. Hawaiian shirt, short shorts and flamingo print lovers, we’re looking at you!
Walk like an Egyptian
Aztec prints are everywhere this season and they’re so easy to add to existing staples such as chinos and jeans. Go for all-out prints like patterned shirts and t-shirts or adopt a more muted approach with pocket print t-shirts or collar and cuff detailing.
