Summer is right around the corner, and y’know what that means; the winter essentials have been put away, the waterproofs have been ditched and this year’s summer trends are coming out in force! You’ve probs got some summer preppin’ to do, but luckily for you, we’re here to lay out the hottest trends for summer 2018 (so make sure you’re taking notes.)
Bold Retro Style
This Summer, it’s all about being bold and there’s no easier way to get the look than with block colours. But why stop there? Throw in some contrast taping and iconic branding to create a #throwback look with ’90s sportswear! Brands like FILA, Kappa, Champion, and Ellesse are all on the rise (don’t call it a comeback!) – so you’ve plenty of choice when crafting out your retro summer style.
Not feeling retro? Want something a bit sportier? With the World Cup starting in less than a month it’s the perfect opportunity to carry footy fever into the summer. Naturally, this means busting out the football shirts! You could stick with your club’s strip or switch it up with one Europe’s elite, but given that it’s International season now, it makes sense to cop the latest England shirt. We’re going crazy for the England Pre-Match shirt, it’s the only way to guarantee a bit of colour this summer. So, whether you’re at home or abroad, everyone will know the Barmy Army is out in force!
Socks & Slides
If you’re off on hol, you’re gonna need the perfect pair of slides. There’s loads of fresh designs coming at you from the likes of Nike, adidas Originals and Tommy Hilfiger that will get you ready for hotter weather. But why settle for just slides? Turn up your style up to 11 with slides AND socks! Not the typical look, but this trend is blowing up this summer, giving you a summer ‘fit with a cosy feel – it’s the best of both worlds.
Chunky kicks is another summer footwear trend that can’t be missed – literally! Chunky sneakers demand attention and will help bring any look to life. Big and bold yet still lightweight, there’s so many silhouettes that are in demand this summer, look out for Nike’s Huarache Drift, adi Originals’ Prophere and more.
