WHAT TO WEAR NOW
The dawn of a new season is the best time to start building a fresh wardrobe that lasts. THE OUTNET’s Head of Buying, Georgina Coulter, has the inside track, revealing the most prevalent trends and ways to translate them from the runways to your wardrobe. This spring/summer 2023, we’re celebrating easy styling with an effortless approach to denim, a new vision for knitwear and luxe sportswear that you’ll wear everywhere except the gym.
DENIM ON DENIM
Known to some as the Canadian Tuxedo, double denim is back. For a new take, try an all-white combination that’s fresh, spring-ready and easy on the eyes (if not so easy on grass stains). Alternatively, style with a crisp white shirt and plain tie - the perfect balance of formality and nonchalance. Simply put, with a confident attitude and the right styling, a double-denim outfit makes a bold statement with minimal fuss.
Knitwear might not be your first consideration when planning your spring/summer wardrobe, but this season we’re seeing desirable options light enough to wear on sunny days. Choose loose-gauge sweater vests or spider-web knits in delicate fabrics and you’ll find they’re as versatile as a cotton tee. If you’re a traditionalist, then you can still work them as a layering piece, or team with a pair of shorts and bright sunglasses for a more fashion-forward look.
Is there anything better than the unrivaled combination of comfort and style? This season, designers have nailed it in the form of sports luxe. At the forefront of the trend are hoodies; try one in a neutral color, worn under a blazer or overcoat for a cool, relaxed vibe that can be worn from day to after dark. Consider pairing brightly colored pieces, such as joggers or puffer jackets, with sneakers for a vibrant outfit that beams with energy. The key to making a good sports luxe investment is choosing high-quality materials and a comfortable fit. Essentially, it’s about expressing yourself in a way that’s practical for everyday life, so aim for something that feels good and confidence is sure to follow.
