XWHY STYLE: Trends for the Summer
“Everyday like a mardi gras, everybody party all day
No work all play, okay!”
Ah if only summer in the city was as dreamy as Will Smith managed to make Miami in his ditty from the album “Big Willie Style”. I’ve never been to Miami but based on this song and a few episodes of Miami Vice (NOT the god awful film they made), it sounds like my kind of town and a great place to inspire your summer wardrobe.
As the festival season rears it’s beautiful head and the first explorers begin to make their way to the island on Ibiza, we find ourselves peaking into the deep recesses of our wardrobe and asking ourselves what we were thinking when we bought that neon vest for Worldwide Festival and exactly who can get away with those short shorts?!
Well as sure as night follows day, there are new trends winging there way to a high street/ holiday/ party near you and here are some of our picks!
All White Everything
The ying to Jay Z’s all Black Yang. Whether it’s as pure as the driven snow or an aged off white, It’s the shade to be seen in. Just make sure you are stocked up with Daz because stains and sauces are drawn to White like moths to a flame.
Not really a new one, the tropical vibe has been around for a while now but it’s how you wear it that really counts this year. Throw a bit of tropical in a blender add a bit of Army greens and a dash of poor taste to recreate that Tropic Thunder feel that no one can ignore.
It’s a Pastel Party
If there was ever a year you could get away with a Miami Vice Style pastel suit then 2014 would be it. Unfortunately though casual is the new smart, so Uncle Dave will have to wait at least another year before dusting his vintage number off. In the meantime indulge in a classic Oxford Shirt Teamed with some light denim if you really have to impress.
