How to find your new Summer style
Those winter clothes are going back into storage, and you’re probably looking at last year’s summer outfits with a little dismay. Nobody wants to dig out those old styles, and the change of seasons has always been the very best time to start working on your new look. So if you haven’t been keeping up with the latest fashion trends of 2018, you’re in luck. For those that feel the burning need to lounge around in the sun while looking cool and stylish, then here are the top tips that will have you looking like a fashion icon, no matter where you choose to spend the warmer days and nights.
Don’t worry, 2018 hasn’t seen the return of the flip-flop. Instead, this year’s offerings in terms of footwear has remained wonderfully traditional, and Brogues and Chelsea Boots should be at the very top of your summer wishlist. Shoes are often the last thing that people consider when it comes to designing their new style, but that can all too often be an error. Good shoes complete any outfit, and bad shoes will detract from your look far more than you might think. Click here to check out the best in summer brands, because it’s always a good idea to start from the ground up.
Nostalgia is in
You may have noticed that there has been a resurgence in 80s nostalgia this year. Even the cinema is a good indication that the 80s have never been more fashionable, with nostalgia-fests like Ready Player One proving that there’s nothing quite like rose-tinted glasses when it comes to looking back. The fashion industry has embraced this throwback, however, and if you’re looking for something that is cutting-edge and trending on all your social media, then it’s time to start checking out the 80s. Look for thick stripes on your light jackets (but you don’t have to go for padded shoulders, honest), and those 80s stonewashed jeans will have you looking like a fashion legend. Finish your look with some refreshing floral shirts, and you’ll look as cool as it’s possible to look while staying refreshed over the hotter months.
The double pocket shirt has been much derided in recent years, but that looks set to change in the summer of 2018 because they’re definitely back. If you want to get the maximum fashion impact from your new double-breasted shirts, then you’re going to want to buy in silk, which is a surprising addition to the top materials that have been trending in the run-up to summer. Complete your look with some personalised cufflinks, but if you want to go all out, then the colour for the year is proving to be the light pastels. The boldest among you will want to adorn yourself in light pink, double pocket, silk shirt that will probably have you feeling like you really ought to be on the catwalk yourself.
Not that you need an excuse, but as spring slowly eases into summer, there’s never a better time of the year to clear out the clutter from your wardrobe and start replacing it with clothes that not only look and feel good but are also guaranteed to make you the best-dressed person in the room.
