Six summer trends to wear now
Ahead of London Collections Men, we’ve rounded up this season’s top trends. Here are six of our favourites…
Strong and classic, navy dominated the men’s catwalks and confirmed itself as the hue of the season. Summer is the perfect time to inject colour into your wardrobe, and a navy suit is a refreshing alternative to wintry black and grey.
From utilitarian military tones to natural mint shades, give this season’s freshest colour the green light. Green has made a massive comeback for SS16, with brands showcasing head-to-toe looks on the catwalk. For a more subtle take on this trend, why not try a pair of green chinos or a green tie.
Stripes continue to cement their place within the contemporary man’s wardrobe this summer. For SS16 this classic motif has been updated with vivid block stripes and vibrant colours. This is one of the easiest patterns to pull off, whether you opt for a bold or a more subtle look.
SS16 is all about mixing and matching patterns. The key to pulling this off is to style patterns with complementary colours. Check out the new Black Label collection for a selection of distinctive placement prints. Alternatively, incorporate bold prints in to your wardrobe with accessories.
British summer is notoriously changeable, so this is a very practical SS16 trend. The catwalks were awash with a series of layered looks that can easily be replicated. Why not try a lightweight field jacket over a wool jumper and a statement check shirt. Team with shorts and casual scarf.
Mixing Smart With Casual
For SS16 brands are mixing formal tailoring with more relaxed items such as t-shirts to create a stylish combination of formality and casualness. Pair your suit with casual moccasins and a polo shirt for a fresh take on smart casual.
