Reworking last year’s favourites is the smart-girls way to getting this year’s spring/summer wardrobe sorted.
If you’ve got them already bring them out from the back of your wardrobe or look out for them in online clearance sales. These six pieces were hot for summer 2015 and are back for another round for SS16.
That off-the-shoulder trend
Cleavage is so passé – the shoulder is the erogenous zone to flaunt this season. Renamed as the ‘cold shoulder trend’ for 2016, its pretty much the same thing with a new name.
Free your shoulders with bardot tops, floral off-the-shoulder dresses and frills. Wear your cold shoulder frill top with a midi skirt and block heels for SS16.
Bright whites and pale colours are always relevant in the warmer months. Pale tailoring is big news this season.
If you don’t want to invest in some new white boyfriend jeans (the jean shape of the moment), last years white skinny jeans will do nicely, so long as you managed to keep them grass-stain free – hats off if you did.
Cropped denim jackets
A denim jacket is always useful and can be worked into most looks. Wear your cropped denim jacket from last year with wide-legs for a 2016 update.
A light-wash denim jacket is perfect with cream or white wide-legged culottes, a floaty vest and wedge sandals for breezy summer days.
Denim shirt dresses
The denim shirt dress is a wardrobe staple and no one will be able to tell if it’s from last year, or even a few years back.
A denim shirt dress which ties at the waist creates a flattering silhouette – go for tailored, button-up the front styles for instant sartorial success. Pay attention to the 8 accessory trends you don’t want to miss in 2016 to give your denim shirt dress an instant update.
Fringing and suede
Fringing is back for another round, which means your suede tassel handbag from last summer will look awesome this summer too. If you’ve been wearing suede tassel ankle boots through winter they can also easily be reworked for the warmer months.
Pair them with distressed denim shorts and a relaxed white t-shirt for a sexy summer look.
Our beloved gladiator sandals are back too! If you don’t believe us about the above two trends being back for another round check out these all-mighty Fairfax Gladiator Fringe Sandals by Topshop. Fringing and gladiator sandals combined.
