Go to Top

Summer is right around the corner and, if you haven’t already, it’s time to start thinking seriously about the pieces you’re going to add to your wardrobe this season. In summer, it’s all about ease and comfort, and designers made sure to accommodate. From caps to camouflage to comfy trousers, the season’s trends will have you ready to relax and get the most out of the season.

This season, baseball caps are back, this time in luxe fabrics (think cashmere and leather) that elevate any summer look. Top off your outfit with a style staple that is now decidedly appropriate in many more locales than just the baseball field.

It's impossible to deny that style gets more casual in the summer. So ditch the briefcase, because this summer is all about an all-purpose backpack. New silhouettes and high end materials make these pieces completely work appropriate, as well as perfect for a weekend getaway.

It's no surprise that neutrals dominate the summer color palette. Sandy shades are the perfect way to summer-ize tailored looks as well as beach-ready styles, whether you're styling a summer suit or just accessorizing with neutral tones.

We all know that fashion is cyclical, but nowhere is it more apparent this season than in the retro trend that was shown on many of the top runways. As Mr. Porter's Style Director Olie Arnold says, "Key pieces include matching two-piece tracksuits, zip-up nylon jumpers and drawstring trousers... in luxury fabrics with careful attention to detail. Top this look off with a vintage leather bomber for the ultimate 1970s sartorial statement.”

Give your skinny jeans a rest. This season, wide leg trousers are the more stylish option, offering a relaxed silhouette that can be dressed up or down. Pair with a retro bomber (see above) and you're good to go.

Minimal sneakers in classic silhouettes should be a go-to this season, with brands opting for luxe materials that complement pared down summer style.

While we'd all like to take the entire summer off and sail around the Caribbean, most of us still have to make the daily trek to the office. Luckily our feet can get a bit of a vacation from stuffy brogues and loafers. This season, designers are taking traditional silhouettes and re-imagining them in bold colors and materials, adding sporty soles, and creating much more eye-catching looks.
