The sun is shining, which means we can finally set our sights on the much anticipated summer wardrobe. At last, it’s time to shove boots and duffel coats to the back of the closet and replace with shorts, chinos and boat shoes. So what will you be wearing this season? Delve into Dappad’s picks of SS16, to make sure you stay on trend ‘til Autumn.
Stay cool in grey
We love the colour grey, as it can be worn all year round – but right now it’s the shade of the season. From trousers to T-shirts, it’s all about grey this year. Invest in a couple of pieces which are different shades of grey and layer them together for a fashion forward look. You can also accessories with grey bags and shoes.
A zip up jacket
The British summer is notoriously unpredictable and as you know, while you may be enjoying a cold one in a beer garden one day, it could feel like winter the next. Summer layering is essential, and we highly recommend a thin zip up jacket. Depending on the rest of your outfit and the occasion, the ensemble could be completed with a suede jacket, a denim jacket, a bomber or a casual hoody.
The smart backpack
Summer is no time for briefcases! Swap your formal bags and cases for a smart backpack made from leather. They can be worn with suits and are smart enough to wear to the office, as well as using as hand luggage for summer holidays.
As the ultimate summer shoe, deck shoes or boat shoes are a must for your footwear collection. Casual and care free, the deck shoe is versatile and can easily be worn with shorts at the beach or with jeans and a tee and a blazer for a night out with friends.
A sophisticated man can pull of white jeans or trousers with ease. Wear with trainers, brogues or deck shoes for an on trend look which will impress men and women alike.
