Summer’s finally on its way and it’s time to make sure your wardrobe reflects that! Here’s our very quick his ‘n’ hers guide to wearing the latest trends when the temperature rises:
Pink and orange are widely tipped to be this summer’s big colours for guys, so make sure you invest in a salmon tee or some ochre cut-offs to make sure everyone knows you’re on board. Sleeveless blazers and jackets are an unusual incoming trend that made a splash in a number of designer’s SS13 collections, but we’ll leave it up to you to decide whether you want to follow this one.
If you’re not so sure, you can’t really go wrong with a pair of men’s shorts and a T-shirt – maybe choose one or the other in a neon shade for a quick nod to another of the season’s hottest trends. The nautical look also does well every summer, and this year will be no exception: break out the stripy shirts and deck shoes to get this classic look right.
The biggest women’s trend for SS13 is all about showing off your arty side – Andy Warhol-inspired prints, pop art dresses, stripy T-shirts and splashes of colour everywhere are what makes this look work. Branch out into the shinier side with metallic fabrics, great as an accent on a shirt or for a dress with the wow factor. Whatever you go for, go bold: this summer is all about bright colours and statement pieces.
Alternatively, show off your retro side with a bit of back-to-the-90s fashion: this grungy look is all about faded denims, leather jackets and plaid skater shirts. Dig out those old band T-shirts and Converse trainers to make the most of the return of grunge!
