Summer is a great time to throw out clothes you never wear and start afresh. Brimming with colour and textures, this season has a plethora of trends that can inject pizzazz into your wardrobe. Move away from the norm-core and stand out in the crowd by test-driving these fresh new styles. From pastels, to a new take on prints, these are the trends to wear at the moment. Out with the old and in with the #NewandNow.

Paisley Prints

Forget the muted, prints are loud and bold this summer. Of all the many ways the trend has manifested, paisley is the most wearable of the lot. Don’t shy away from an all-over printed shirt covered in this motif. The rule of thumb, however, is to keep the rest of the outfit low key. Pick a shirt with a muted colour, and team with neutral separates for best results.

Patch work

What started as a fad in womenswear has taken off like wildfire and trickled into menswear. It lends itself well to summer clothing as it makes your otherwise boring separates a whole lot of fun. Find pieces with cheeky patches but stick to basics like a chambray shirt or a military green jacket for light layering.

Pastels

Not only do pastels keep you cool in the heat, they also make sure your outfit is bang on-trend. Swap your regular navy blazer for a powder blue one that is more day-time appropriate and trend-aligned.

Tropical Prints

Tropical and botanical prints are big this season and are more wearable than their floral counterparts. Stick to keeping it casual with summer t-shirts or casual shirts and pair with khaki or beige shorts to channel the summer vibe.

Joggers

Gone are the days of chinos and slacks; joggers are the way forward. It’s about time you swap your separates and get on with this trend before it takes off like a forest fire. Go for neutral shades like navy or grey so you can team them with either T-shirts or cotton shirts.
