Summer is nearly upon us and it's out with the dark denim. We have made switching your wardrobe around a little easier by picking out our top picks and how you can style them.
This summer we intend to walk in looking strong in bold patterns and loud colours, think prints, bucket hats and stash bags. To make things a little easier for you we have handpicked some our favourites from the SS19 launch available on our site now.
Kestin Hare |
Starting off our top picks with this perfect for summer shirt from Kestin Hare. The sunshine inspired shirt with its yellow tones and contrasting floral pattern is ideal for those warmer days. Designed with a relaxed fit the short-sleeved shirt takes its looks from the typical Hawaiian style, keeping to the theme with the Hawaiian collar. Made from light-weight and breathable Tencel cloth - you can even wear a plain t-shirt underneath for those breezier days.
Clarks Original |
From the original makers of the chukka shoe, Clarks have released their OG inspired range changing little in style but designing them in pastel colours. These classic shoes can be worn throughout warm dry summer days with light and dark clothing. Try to stick to a neutral all round tone to let the shoes speak for themselves, if you want to add patterns with your outfit then take inspiration from our lookbook and stick to an easy to wear monochrome shirt.
The Idle Man |
If you're new to bold patterns then this heavy twill over shirt is is a great neutral jacket to wear over a monochrome printed shirt to tone it down for an occasion or your personality. Designed with twin breasted pockets and cut to the waist, the overshirt has a casual feel to it, great for treks to the sunny pub garden.
Carhartt WIP |
Summer looks aren't complete without accessories, more specifically, British festivals aren't complete without the bucket hat. Carhartt WIP has released their embroidered bucket hats in black, white and navy with their new SS19 collection. Sticking to a plain hat or accessory means you'll be able to make the most of it pairing it with a wider variety of outfits.
Kestin Hare |
Sometimes bold patterns can be had to pull off, especially when you're not used to wearing them. Kestin Hare has designed a range of patterned shirts in their SS19 collection which has minimal colour contrast and smaller prints to make them easier to wear. This navy Crammond shirt has been designed with classic Hawaiian collar and chest patch pocket keeping its tone more casual and BBQ friendly.
Portuguese Flannel |
The shirts of the summer, Portuguese Flannel have always designed stylish lightweight shirts for summer. Made in Portugal from 100% lyocell this Dogtown Revere short sleeve shirt in pastel pink differs from the other shirts due to its flat camp collar.

Edwin is renowned for their premium denim and they have now introduced their Hooded Popover Jacket. Taking the retro pull over to a new level they have kept the traditional cuffed sleeves and front pouch as a nod to it's OG style. The lighter wash creates an ideal summer look and pairs effortlessly with any colour shorts, you could even pick pattern shorts to give the look a more festival vibe.
Carhartt WIP |

Along with the pullover, you can also find the matching bottoms to go with if you dare to pair them together, or you can wear them with a white logo t-shirt.
Stan Ray |
These wide leg Painter Pants from Stan Ray's new SS19 launch is the perfect mix between smart and casual. The '80s style pants are made from 100% cotton and are created out of inspiration to the original Stan Ray's which were created in 1972. With a slightly tapered leg, you can wear these with either a white shirt or t-shirt.
Our final addition to the selection of our top picks is from Rains. Known for always creating the finest jackets and coats it's not surprising that we had to add one of Rain's latest jacket from their SS19 collection. This hooded foggy coat is the ideal choice for any festival goer, the water-resistant material will make this your go-to jacket for those unpredictable weather moments. However, the best part about the jacket is because of the transparent material your outfit underneath will still show through. Go for a bold colour or pattern with this jack to really make the most out of it.
