'90s comeback

This year the '90s revival hit full throttle, and this season modern sportswear meets classic menswear codes! Nail the '90s-inspired trend in discernibly modern sneakers with a sleek suit for a stylish 9–5 look. For the ultimate casual appeal, a coordinated combo of denim overalls and graphic tees is a winner. And you can certainly thank the '90s for light-washed denim, humble bucket hats, crossbody bags and that all round cool and carefree attitude. You can practically hear the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song in the distance, right?

Utilitarian pieces

It’s time to turn function into a fashion statement. This year modern military-inspired menswear ruled the runway. Think reinvented classics like cargo shorts, checked shirts, functional bags and considered pockets – all ready to house the modern man’s provisions. And yes, dress codes matter but don't forget functionality. Alongside credible cargo, technical materials, gilets and backpacks are all crucial to nailing this uniform. However, don’t forget the devil is in the details – drawstring ties, straps, toggles and plenty pockets will keep you looking sharp! Perfect for exploring the great outdoors.

Blue is the new black

New season, new colour spectrum! Blue is back as the must-have alternative to black so take inspiration from the coast with versatile tones of navy, white and blue. Colour is an easy win in getting ahead of the trend game and tonal blues are the perfect foundation for a forward-thinking look. Master the new maritime hue in dashing denim, nautical stripes and tropical prints that harness its versatile power wherever your summer inspiration leads you. Blue worn in the heat of summer will be this season’s coolest option.

The all-new summer suit

Behold, the summer suit! It’s your singular solution to outstanding office attire. This season men of fashion will be breaking up suits into separates. So when the dress code calls for something a little smarter, mix-and-match your tailoring all summer long. But don’t be afraid to stick to summery shades like blue and beige that feel as fresh as they look. Still sophisticated and coordinated, it’s time to suit up and beat the heat once and for all.

The new neutral

Be the best-dressed this season and start your spring style with a clean slate. It’s time to spend day to dusk in neutral-hued pieces that are a style must for the warm months. The trick to this trend is keeping your colour palette simple. Style a timeless palette of tan, cinnamon and champagne with white for a look that epitomises summer ease. This trend is sure to make you the pinnacle of polished when the mercury is high.

  1. I am with love with the gorgeous style of the '90s, it was the time of changes and so it affected the world of fashion a lot.
