INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

3 KEY COLOURS FOR SS19

By Steven Potter, 5 April 2019

It may be a little early to start talking warm weather, but since February and March have been pretty mild, we can’t help but get a little hyped. We’ve looked back at the biggest trends for SS19, but what about colours? For an easy way to give your spring/summer look an instant update, take a peep at the three most popular hues gloriously suited to the (hopefully) sunny months ahead.

Purple power

Pastel shades in general are big news for SS19 and neatly fit into the tie-dye resurgence seen across the catwalks of MSGM, Dior Homme and Ermenegildo Zegna (above). If a full tie-dye boiler suit is a bit much for your tastes, take the same washed-out approach and make like this street styler by repping a washed-out tee in the same hue. A white jacket, light-wash denim and worn-in Converse ensure all eyes are on the eye-catching colour.

Don't steal my sunshine

In a more literal shift towards fashion imitating nature, sunshine-yellow shades featured in collections from Cottweiler (above), Fendi and Acne Studios. With a shade as rich as this, make it the central point of your look like the chap above and offset the hue with a darker colour over the top. With denim in all its variants also one of the main takeaways from the men’s SS19 shows, the guy above has opted for another literal gesture and rocked a pair of jeans seemingly made from every shade and style ever created. Big power move.

Fiery looks 

With all the bright hues doing the rounds at the moment (think emergency orange, fluoro green etc), this summer sees bright colours continuing their dominance over the sartorial landscape. Red in particular was a standout shade, and Milanese brand Sunnei debuted an all-red-everything ensemble during their SS19 show. Rather than opting for the full head-to-toe look (unless you really love red), make it the overarching theme, like this chap has done with his printed jacket. Then, build a subtle accessories moment around it – namely, those bright red socks shown off thanks to his cropped, rinse-wash jeans. Ideal.
