Hold on there, May is here already? We’re sure it was only a few weeks ago that we were singing carols and knocking back mulled wine. Where does the time go, eh? So before we end up in graves as worm food, let’s get cracking with the best music, movies, brands and trends for the month ahead.
1. NOVELLA ALBUM
Looking for an alternative playlist for your holidays? Then check out Novella’s debut record that’s full of ‘60s inspired pop that’ll give you all the fun of a psychedelic hallucination – without the crippling fear.
RELEASE DATE MAY 11TH
2. BRAND HIGHLIGHT – OXFORD LADS
If we had to pick a brand to visualise summer, this would be it. Unique prints adorn sunny staples such as shorts and short sleeve shirts in a ultra-lightweight silk blend, featuring geometric florals and horses.
The sun is finally out and your pasty arms are probably in dire need of some vitamin D, so stock up on our selection of vests, in plain, prints and new fits, and get your summer started.
4. WIN LOADS OF CLOTHES
We’ve created a scientific, in-depth, terrifyingly accurate quiz which calculates your answers into outfits specifically matched for you. The best thing about it? You can win them all.
We’ve delved into the print archives of London icons Liberty again for a limited range of short sleeve shirts and ties in premium fabrics, featuring classic paisley and elephant motifs.
If you’re planning on pulling out your dad’s old velvet green flared suit, then you really don’t deserve a date. From contemporary fits to classic cool, explore Topman’s range of prom suits and get dapper for the big day.
Campaign Against Living Miserably is the new charity we’re supporting, a great cause that’s dedicated to fighting male suicide, which is the biggest killer of men under 45.
8. SUEDE LOAFERS
Whether you’re planning on drinking mojitos on the beach or Fosters in the back garden, suede loafers are the footwear of choice when things start to heat up this season.
9. TOP PICK
Buyers Admin Assistant Callum Burman chooses the white and black slim ringer t-shirt as his top pick for May. You can never have too many plain white tees, and the black contrast cuffs are a great update for the new season (tattoos not included).
10. AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
This is probably going to be movie of the year, never mind May (we say probably because Star Wars will either be amazing or abysmal). In the second Avengers instalment Iron Man royally screws things up for the world by creating an evil artificial intelligence. Tony Stark, what a douche bag.
