To ease you into the new season, we’ve asked TOPMAN’s Editor, Daniel Copley, to talk through SS16’s top trends and essential looks.
Everybody’s favourite fabric returns for the new season, but this spring it’s not just about jeans, but it’s taking on all 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 formal wear; 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.
Equally influenced be high fashion and street style, 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 impact on AW16’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.
