A colour palette comprised of neutral shades such as beige, brown and khaki means throwing in a brighter shade every now and then won’t overthrow the overall look you decide to go for.

It’s all in the detailing too! Eyelets, heavy zips, oversized pockets, chunky metal buttons and belts will turn pieces into a utility wonder. Understated A-line shapes, unique bomber jackets in various lengths and fabrics, pairing a bright colour with neutrals for a bold contrast are all acceptable ways to pull off this trend.

Military style shirts and jackets can be teamed with pretty pieces for a feminine spin whilst matte metallic worn with khaki or denim makes for a cool casual alternative to the look. Pleats, folds and gathered detailing on shirts means you can sport the trend at work too. Perfect! And now that the nice weather is finally here you can treat yourself to these beautiful pieces.
