Pop of pastel

For those just starting their journey with colourful fashion, pastel hues are a great way to begin! Their subtle, yet stylish, making for fresh summery outfits that aren’t overwhelming to the eye. This season shades of dusty pink and soft lilac are trending in menswear, as well as the classic pastel blues and minty greens that hit the shelves year after year. These pieces look amazing pared back with crisp white staples such aa a pair of chinos! Pastels are particularly popular this year when it comes to suiting. Perfect for any upcoming race days, work events or family occasions, a pastel blazer will be just the thing to freshen up your fancy fashion attire. Just combine with a swanky timepiece and floral tie and you’ve got yourself the perfect soirée outfit!

Bring the bright

For the bolder personalities amongst us, summer brings a myriad of bright colours to don for the warmer months. Bright blues, sunny yellows and eye-catching oranges are just a few of the popular shades you can find on the shelves this season. If you’re keen to shake up your fashion game, incorporating some vivid colours into your wardrobe will keep it fun and on-trend for the summer. Now, you can easily incorporate this trend into your existing wardrobe by starting with some brightly coloured accessories. A pop of colour can do wonders to set off your neutrals – think sunnies, hats, and even socks to reinvigorate your favourite styles.

You can go one step further by opting for a single piece such as a t-shirt or pants in a vibrant colour that will pare back well with your denim and linen pieces. Or if you’re feeling extra bold, why not go for head-to-toe tonal! Wearing a colour blocked outfit is easier than it seems, just keep everything to one shade if you’re looking for a trendy monochrome outfit.
