By Sam Higgins, 13 June 2017

The warm season may be upon us, but that’s no reason to stifle your style with simple shorts and basic tees. Here’s the lowdown on our skate-inspired SS17 trend, Soda Punk, which will give your key colours and cuts a reworking for summer.

You won’t be unfamiliar with Soda Punk’s core elements – the SS17 trend takes pastel hues and projects them onto relaxed, skater silhouettes.

A hint of punk-inspired distressing and rip-and-repair details give each piece a fresh, raw feel.

From heavy-metal graphics to unique layering, this is a simple, stylish way to add attitude to your warm-weather wear. Raw edges, cut-off sleeves and heavy washes are key features, and, with the help of customisation, the punk details give lightweight outerwear and everyday accessories a unique feel.

Accents of pink, however, bring the 70s trend into 2017 and help pare back some of the grungier notes.

Bring a touch of summer psychedelia to your gear via bold, tie-dyed tops. They'll make a strong enough statement whether left alone to shine, or worn with cut-off shorts or lightweight trews.

Or breathe new life into the ever-present band-merch trend by layering one of this season’s essential pieces – a long-sleeved tee – or jumper under your souvenir top. Clash the colours or go big with your tee’s typography to stand out stylishly.

In terms of catwalk inspiration, Alexander Wang introduced a summer-sky-esque tie-dye touch to long-sleeved pieces in his SS17 range, setting the bar for combining several statement elements in one wearable look.

While, more recently, Demna Gvasalia brought unlikely layering and acid-washed attire to his Balençiaga line and, in the process, showed you how to make the most of every aspect of this trend.
