3 WAYS TO WEAR SS19 TECH
By Titi Finlay, 29 May 2019
With the rise of virtual changing rooms, style-advising chatbots and even AI influencers, it’s no secret that fashion is going hi-tech. And, if the SS19 catwalks were anything to go by (editor’s note: they’re everything to go by) then tech is also the trend to don this summer – and no, we don’t mean wearing the new iPhone as an accessory. We're talking futuristic fabrics, 3D details and utility add-ons. Here’s how to wear tech styles for summer 2019…
When it comes to slouchy summer separates, it’s time for a system reboot. Switch out your Hawaiian prints for rust-coloured tones to really amp up the dystopian vibe and pair with fresh white socks and kicks to keep things fresh. Oh, and the number-one rule of this trend?

Ironically, this futuristic trend is all about throwback 80s sci-fi refs, Y2K Matrix vibes and techy graphics à la 00s icons like Guy Fieri and X-tina – and we're 100% here for it. Layer up the sporty fabrics with this lycra long-sleeve and colour-matched track pants for a super-sleek take on the trend. Finish the look with a white-on-white socks and sandals combo for cooler climes.

Reflective fabric is becoming a bit of a fashion continuum, with every cool kid on your feed flexing their version of the glowed-up trend. For summer, style these iridescent shorts with a simple white tee, socks and sneaks to let the reflective material do the talking. Finish the ‘fit with a double-sided cross body harness – ideal for all those hi-tech essentials...
