We’re about to give you a glimpse of the future. Anybody can tell you what you should be wearing right now – but we’re about to tell you what you’ll be wearing for the season ahead with our top six menswear trends for spring summer 2016.
You’ll notice some of the items featured below will be in stock already, the others will build up as the season progresses. The best thing to do is keep an eye on our New In section – we add about 50 new items a day – and shop the trends as they arrive.
Denim is one of those things that it’s impossible to live without – but this season everybody’s favourite fabric is branching out from jeans, and taking on other areas of your wardrobe. You can tackle this SS16 trend in a couple of ways: one, invest in items that wouldn’t conventionally be crafted in denim, such as a denim parka or formalwear; two, layer multiple pieces together to create an all-denim-everything look. Either way, look out for hero denim pieces and make them the centre of your spring style.
This season, when it comes to suits, it’s time to move away from the dark and embrace the light. Forget about your charcoals and blacks, this season’s top tailoring trend is all about slick formalwear in pale blues, off-whites and light stone colours. If you’re feeling a little uneasy about turning up in your local in a suit, then don’t worry, this trend is surprisingly easy to wear – and works best when styled casually with plain tees, hoodies and printed shirts, rather than smart shirts and ties!
People have been wearing their jeans short for years, but now it’s time to apply the same rules to your trousers. To help you nail the trend, we’ve designed loads of cropped trousers for SS16 – they’re available in both formal and casual fabrics, with both wider and slimmer legs to suit your style.
Unstructured and refreshingly simple, this new season trend layers together soft, washed-out shades of sand, caramel and camel to create striking tonal outfits. The key to nailing the trend is to invest in luxe basics and upgraded staples that fall within the colour palette…you’ll find it quite easy too, as there’ll be loads of it around as the season gets going. Pieces that can help you build slouchy, relaxed silhouettes are especially effective – take Kanye West as your sandstorm style icon if you’re in need of any inspiration.
Following military’s assault on last season’s menswear, it’s likely that you’ve already bought into khaki to some degree. The good news? It’s still on trend. The better news? So are loads of other variations of green. From subtle sage shades to brighter tones, make sure you add some statement green outerwear and standout casual pieces to your regular outfits this season.
It’s far too early to be thinking about shorts and shades, but our resort trend edges towards sunnier times with bleached denim, strong prints and short sleeve revere collar shirts. We’ve selected nostalgic patterns, from 70s-inspired vertical stripes to 50s-esque Hawaiian prints for our shirting – but the styling is key, with the shirts worn untucked and open for a chilled, laidback look.
