Your warm-weather wardrobe needs a reboot? We hear you. The most fuss-free way is to swap the old for the new. And with these three covetable styles, you’ll nail it quicker you can ‘gram your OOTD.
An unexpected hero piece, statement stripes and the brave new world of pink. Ladies, we bring you the soon-to-be-everywhere styles you need to flawlessly transition from spring to summer.
The hero piece: The embroidered cover-up
Swap: your everyday denim jacket for an embroidered version
Denim jackets have been a wardrobe staple since we care to remember, and it’s unlikely they’re going anywhere soon. You can invest in a new piece or breathe new life into distressed denim by turning to tapestry. Take our word for it, embroidery equals instant personality.
How to wear it: For a military-inspired turn, opt for a longline utility jacket with intricate embroidery and style it with dark denim cut-offs. Or for a polished take, layer an embroidered lace jacket over a slip dress.
The staple: 50 shades of fuchsia
Swap: florals for fuchsia
Yes florals are forever pieces, but if you've overdosed on the trend, it's time to think pinkish. Every shade has flooded the catwalks, but not in your average blush tones. Get ready for an influx of hot pinks, raspberry reds and lilacs.
How to wear it: Top to toe. Style a pastel satin bomber with a cerise jumpsuit and strawberry-red suede pumps for a highly Instagrammable take.
The statement maker: Stripes
Swap: Slogan tees for statement stripes
There are stripes as you know them and there are statement stripes. The new school of stripes are banker, pinstriped, punchy and everything in between.
How to wear it: Flaunt your fashion-forward ways with sleeveless asymmetric silhouettes or off-the-shoulder pieces in… you guessed it, stripes!
From bold cover-ups to brighter-than-the-sun socks, men take note; your spring to summer attire boils down to these three styles.
The hero piece: The conspicuous cover-up
Swap: neutral or navy utility jackets for a lighter, brighter alternative.
Neutral is out, bold is in. Why? Because nothing says you’ve arrived quite like bold outerwear. Anything lightweight – think linen or breathable cotton as your go- to – as they will keep you looking and feeling cool even when it's scorching out. What’s not to love?
How to wear it: Whether it’s a technical parka, or camouflage jacket, keep it in focus with neutral denim, chinos or tailored trousers. It’s the best way to make an entrance.
The staple: All check everything
Swap: your neutral separates for a checked print.
From Prince of Wales to gingham, check is the comeback kid of the season. The update on a classic has trickled down from the runway catwalk to the streets and it’s easy to see why.
How to wear it: Check on check – windowpane check suit anyone? – is the bold move to make, but to play it safe, pair a gingham blazer with navy slim-fit trousers and check socks, and polish the look with suede loafers.
The head turner: Happy feet
Swap: neutral for statement footwear
That’s right, statement is the new black. Whether it’s embellished boots or rainbow-bright socks, it’s time to roll up those cuffs and showcase your penchant for bold kicks like the cool kids do.
How to wear it: Flaunt your brightest socks and embellished brogues (or boots) with ankle-cut trousers to put a pep in your step. Go bold or go home!
