This summer’s biggest trends featuring designer clothes uk
Spring has well and truly sprung, which means that the summer season is waiting just around the corner. With brighter days here to stay, now is the ideal time to start planning the details of your summer wardrobe. If you aren’t completely sure what you want your go-to summer style to look like this year, our latest trend report is here to give you a helping hand in the form of some serious summer sartorial inspiration.
The SS19 runways of Paris, Milan and London were all practically overflowing with chic tailoring and you simply can’t go wrong with a sleek suit to streamline your silhouette. Go for a contemporary look with wide leg trousers, which are certain to see you through everything from important board meetings to after-work dinners with your colleagues. Alternatively, opt for a lightweight linen suit with a chic curved hem for those balmy midsummer days when wearing anything heavier just feels impossible.
Who likes short shorts?
We like short shorts. Surprisingly easy to wear, bottom-skimming short shorts found their way into myriad Spring/Summer 2019 runway collections and they look extremely chic when paired with everything from loose t-shirts to fitted blazers and relaxed denim jackets.
Plain white, black and khaki shorts are ideal for laid back weekends in the city, but if you’re looking for something that will make a bit more of a statement, opt for sleek leather styles, retro print patterns or bright tie-dye. To enjoy some summer fun in the sun to the max, now is the time to double down on leg day at the gym.
Skip the shirt. Yes, really!
Have you ever worn a suit without a shirt? Well, if you haven’t, now is your chance. Fashion weeks saw everything from light blue two-pieces styled with slip on sandals to super chic stone suits worn with sleek desert boots strutting their stuff down the runway. Just make sure to apply a reliable deodorant that won’t leave any unsightly marks on your jacket.
Say hello to sage
There is always a stand-out colour trend during every seasonal fashion week and summer 2019 is all about sage. This wearable hue complements a variety of skin tones and lends itself perfectly to an array of styles.
Throw on a sage-hued loose artist’s jacket over slim-leg cargo pants for relaxed evening dinners, make an impression in the office in a stylish sage two-piece, or style a sports-luxe athleisure-inspired sage sweater with relaxed joggers and sneakers for a sleek off-duty aesthetic.
Slip your feet into some super cool sandals
Let’s be honest, it’s simply impossible to escape the allure of a really great pair of sandals when the weather’s warm. Hiking sandals are set to be the shoe of the summer 2019 season, and you’ll get bonus style – and comfort – points for opting for a pair with a seriously chunky sole. Big buckles, sleek mesh and criss-crossed elastic straps will ensure that your footwear choices make the best possible statement this summer.
Summer 2019 is the season of the handbag
With no hint of a murse or a manbag in sight, this season it’s time to embrace both the style and the practicality of a handbag. Opt for a classic saddle bag for a hands-free, no-fuss look or make a statement with a small hand-held tassel bag. From sleek leather shoulder bags to 90s-inspired canvas cross-bodies, there really is a handbag for every man this season. After all, you’ve got things that you need to carry too, right?
Lean into the comfort of exaggerated double-breasted jackets
Double-breasted suit jackets are shaping up to be the silhouette of the summer season. Go big and baggy for effortless contemporary style and wear your chosen jacket open at all times to make the most of this truly liberating cut.
Keep your shirts surprising
Your wardrobe probably already contains a variety of sleek shirts, but this season is all about making an impression with a high-fashion sharpness that is sure to surprise for all the right reasons. Long sleeves and oversized cuffs dress down classic tailoring, billowing frills will introduce a touch of the new romantic into your aesthetic, and funnel-neck tunics are the height of contemporary style and comfort.
Welcome wrap-around tailoring
OK, so we’ve already covered some of your ultra-classic tailoring options, but that isn’t all that this summer’s style has to offer. Wrap-around tailoring is exciting and innovative, so we are firmly championing the sheer beauty of oversized belts and suits cinched with obis. Look out for kimono-style jackets that have been deconstructed and merged with traditional tailoring and classic lounge jackets tied at the waist with a structured belt for a flash of unexpected style.
