NOSTALGIC WEAR
Nostalgic fashion has been making waves all over retailers this spring season. All of a sudden fashion is revisiting the minimalist Nineties-era, with the MTV generation now in charge of many independent labels. Inner-city outerwear couture is making a huge resurgence for this upcoming summer season


DOPE CAPS
Having the right cap is essential for this upcoming summer season. The right cap topped all looks during fashion week as designers played with color and texture; from red to nude via denim and everything in between. Having the right cap will definitely pull your look together.


KILLER BACKPACKS
Sportswear gains ground each season and for Summer 2017 the backpack is essential for your everyday style. Whether its High luxe at Vuitton or a practical Jansport or my fav Herschel, backpackers can leave for the airport safe in the knowledge that their style game will be on point wherever they end up.

 

BUCKET HATS
We thought we’d seen the last of these Nineties accessories, but according to the Spring/Summer 2017 runways, bucket hats are set to make a strong comeback this summer season.


JUMPSUITS
It’s not a romper, or is it? We don’t know exactly, but this onesie trend is really making waves into this summer season as an essential for the stylish guy on the go. Designers are showing no signs of expelling the utilitarian all-in-one from their menswear wardrobes anytime soon. A bold fashion statement that steals the style of workmen in their warehouses, you can predict a strong Summer 2017 trend for jumpsuits.


WINDBREAKERS
The windbreaker and the parka are essential for every so-called street style influences. Making a huge resurgence to the fashion scene thanks to luxury brands like Prada and Versace the windbreaker is a cool choice for turning your style up this upcoming summer season.


STONE COLOR
Across the board, a stone that color that hits between white and sandy beige was the most popular color shown by designers for the upcoming summer season. A sun-friendly alternative to stark white jeans and will definitely keep you stylish and cool for the hot weather.


CONVERTIBLE KICKS
Two-in-one shoes are trending hard this season. The most notable feature on catwalk footwear was a fold down back, or slipper really. That’s a heel with more supple, unstructured leather that can flatten underneath your foot to make the shoe into a mule. Slip a pair to add an instant summer vibe to your outfit.


SLOGAN TSHIRTS
Slogan T-shirts have become something of a staple amongst street fashion influencers. With big designers producing their own version of this latest fashion trend, from Off-White to Yeezy Season. The Slogan tee looks great paired with any kind trousers and dope kicks.
