High summer calls for confident classics with a few ingenious tweaks. Energising your wardrobe with zesty injections of contrasting colour, khaki and canary is the newest style twist seen at Cruise '17 collections up and down the coast. Introducing a brilliant bolt of primary colour into your perennial rotation works as an ageless reboot for everyday khaki.
Following on from the hegemony of genderless silhouettes for the masses, military louche separates set the pace for summer. Defined by long, tapered fits that add a touch of designer drama to daily dressing, these Rosie Assoulin wide leg trousers are the perfect tonal counterpart for our second favourite colour this season – yellow.
Sun drenched shades and serious Rambo silhouettes reinvigorate this time-old tryst between bold and daring – offering city-slicker styles with a strong camouflage edge. Defined by androgynous shapes and colour-block accessories, these brash reversed layer cuff trousers showcase a throwback b-boy look for the modern day kerbside queen.
Designed with utilitarian chic detailing, these flared high-waisted trousers from the NYC ready-to-wear designer flaunt a simple yet strong aesthetic, blending '90s subculture styling with functional tonal top stitching and ripcord inspired key chain accenting. Ideal for elongating any body shape and adding a few inches with well-disguised heels, these contemporary casuals are a master of deception.
Worn in stark contrast with our warm yellow button up shirt, this modern mash-up is a lively yet on-point pairing for any occasion. Worn neatly tucked into the high waistband, this Californian Sunshine silk shirt from our summer Vaughan collection is a light and playful piece. A rich colour combination that not only plays with palette – but texture, too, these heavy draped Rosie Assoulin trousers are given a seasonal context thanks to the light and breathable fabric of our short-sleeved shirt.
Worn with pick n' mix accessories, this creative ensemble oozes with a sartorial summertime confidence. Ideal for work or play, chunky block wooden heels and a fun geometric clutch work as city-appropriate styles that can handle the hustle and bustle of city living - thanks to their ergonomic design and fashionable fool-proof allure. Styled with statement jewellery like this colour-coded tassel bangle and off-kilter retro sunnies, this culture clash ensemble is ideal for the intrepid urban nomad looking to upscale standard attire with a fresh new feel.
Think outside the prét-à-porter box with this stylish fashion hack – guaranteed to keep you ahead in the summer style race!
