5 SPRING STYLES TO UPDATE FOR SUMMER
By Lakeisha Goedluck, 26 May 2018
When it comes to switching up your wardrobe to suit the outside temps, it’s easier to make the winter to spring transition. By now, you’ve probably let go of all your hefty layers and long-sleeved items, so how do you stay looking fresh for summer? Well, say goodbye to your fail-safe prints and go-to jackets, it’s all about Hawaiian shirts, long shorts and minimal creps for summer 2018. Take a look at these street stylers for inspiration…
Throughout the year, a Breton-stripe T-shirt is always a good idea, but this is particularly true when spring hits. If you’ve been rocking yours with a slick pair of tailored trews and white shoes à la this guy for the last couple of months, congrats for being so on your game in a sartorial sense.
But if you’re getting tired of the traditional pattern, now’s a great time to opt for a more summer-ready pick: the Hawaiian shirt. Whether you’re into the more flamboyant variety or prefer a dark-coloured option, there’s plenty to choose from. Just style with your favourite pair of work pants and Converse trainers.
When attempting the aesthetic, it’s especially important not to neglect your bottom half. Light-washed skater jeans have been in high demand so far this year – but, as the weather gets increasingly warmer, you’re likely better off bagging a pair of skater-style long shorts instead. Go for the full ramp-ready look with an oversized tee or pair yours with a cool shirt like this fella.
Football fever is in full swing, so, accordingly, the stylish lot have been reaching for their retro-flavoured footie shirts. Often seen styled with a chilled pair of slim-fit jeans and a nifty cross-body bag for a strong streetwear vibe, it looks like they’re set to be a staple piece of kit for summer.
However, if you’re after a more refined everyday garm to add to your summer wardrobe, why not try a revere collar shirt on for size? As already mentioned, Hawaiian-print versions of this type of shirt are receiving a lot of hype, but any variation will do to stay on trend for the latter part of SS18.
