Spring/Summer 2019 reflects our desire to embolden ourselves as we face the future; turning to colours and colour stories that provide confidence and lift our spirits; embracing a colour and design direction filled with creative and unexpected combinations.
We selected colours of this season, which with a little transformation will be in trend from Spring/Summer to Autumn/Winter 2019. Here are the four most commonly swerved shades, and how to wear them all year round.
Like orange and purple, yellow is a statement colour that needs to be used sparingly and anchored with neutrals. With this in mind, always look to control use of the hue with surrounding pieces in white, blue, grey, beige and charcoal.
You’ll be surprised how versatile they can be when teamed with dark denim or grey flannel trousers.
ether dusty and soft or bold and bright, pink has been big news for several seasons now. Lucky, then, that it pairs well with plenty of colours you probably already have in your wardrobe – including brown, beige, blue and white.
In tailoring, pink plays especially well with other traditionally masculine colours – there’s a reason the salmon shirt and a navy suit has become a modern power dressing staple. Grey also works well in formalwear or, for a more contemporary approach.
The easiest way to wear purple is to use it sparingly as an accent. It teams extremely well with beige, grey and shades of blue, from the sky and ducks egg to cobalt and teal.
Purple dress shirts also look great when paired with navy or midnight blue suits, and for the especially ballsy amongst us, why not consider a purple shirt with floral contract and a pair of handmade grey woven & croc-embossed monk straps for the summer months? Each is guaranteed to make a statement.
Despite being a high-impact colour, cobalt requires no complex styling equations. Styling rules are pretty simple. The colour can be approached in much the same way as navy: it’s all about balance.
As is the case with most retina-widening colours, it’s best left occupy the limelight solo: so choose a few backing singer pieces to support your headline act.
Try a cobalt shirt with gray chinos and blue loafers or with white sneakers.
