FLANNELS SS19 The Day Trip Pt. 4: The Café

Hungry for summer? You’re in luck. The warm weather is finally here, and it’s time for easy living, laid-back dressing and long, languid afternoons in the sun. Cue your summer wardrobe update and our guide to the season’s hero pieces and trends. Throw in a little sunshine, a few Aperol spritz and a holiday or two, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for the best summer to date. From elevated denim essentials to the season’s unlikely colour trend, here’s what you need to know for SS19.

ELEVATED DENIM

On the menu for SS19: elevated denim with a difference as summer’s staple material gets a new-season upgrade. From bleached, distressed jeans at Off-White to raw denim at Prada, and disco-inspired jackets by Saint Laurent, denim is anything but boring this summer.

BEIGE REDUX

It might not be a colour you instantly associate with summer, but beige was big on all of the SS19 runways. A super-chic alternative to pastels and brights, Fendi has been crowned queen of the shade, serving up a statement mix of FF pieces in oatmeal, brown, and taupe. Be more beige.

ICONIC UPGRADES

NEWSFLASH: a fashion house’s iconic styles are often also their best. We return to them year after year, and this season the tried-and-tested classics have been given a fresh upgrade for summer. Burberry check belt bags, Gucci logo swimsuits and Saint Laurent’s heart-shaped Lou Lou sunglasses are all top of our warm-weather wishlists. I scream, you scream, we all scream for fashion.
