With the weather finally beginning to perk up, it is time to ditch your AW knits and boots in favour of some more breathable summer gear. This might sound like common sense, yet many of us seem reluctant to part with out winter wardrobes which we often linger on with long into spring and summer. Refreshing your wardrobe for summer is a quick, simple fix; to lend a hand, we have picked the seven key pieces that will provide you with a solid foundation for the perfect summer wardrobe.
Shoes are the cornerstone of any look, and the importance of your choice of footwear is only accentuated by the fact your get-up will be considerably lighter during the warmer months. A pair of all-white sneakers has become a summer staple in recent years and this is not changing for SS16. Lacoste’s ‘Straightset’ tennis shoes are a timeless leather low-top with the versatility to take you from day to night, while more casual takes on the trend include Sperry’s ‘Cloud’ trainers, Converse’s low-top ‘Chuck Taylor All Stars’ and Novesta’s ‘Star Masters’.
While your all-white sneakers will be versatile enough to dress up or down, your summer wardrobe should also incorporate a pair of more sophisticated, high-quality loafers. H Shoes by Hudson offer a good range of loafers for SS16 with the ‘Felipe’ blue suede driving shoes and ‘Pierre’ brown leather tassel loafers as standout examples. We are also fans of Selected Homme’s brown suede ‘Bolton’ tassel loafers.
