Splurge v save – Top Fashion Trends for Summer 2015/2016

With the summer season just a matter of weeks away, you’re probably itching to get your wardrobe ready for the busy social calendar ahead. In this latest Thrifty Threads blog we show you how to keep your fashion on point and your finances in the black when it comes to the top summer trends this year.

We’ve plucked these latest trends straight from designer runways and the pages of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle for both ladies and gents, but in true Mozo style we’ve also listed a thrifty alternative so you can stay true to the trend without breaking the bank.  

Men

Deck Shoes: Leave your pair of thongs at home with your can of VB and pull on a pair of deck shoes with a bottle of peroni in hand. They’re a great choice for those gents who want to channel a bit of nautical luxe on a Sunday arvo while still being appropriate for the sweltering Aussie heat.

Linen Shirt: The humble linen shirt is perfect for a number of casual occasions from a lunch with your mates to date night and the fabric will give you some much needed breathing room on those hot summer days. But beware linen is notorious for wrinkling so you may need to get acquainted with your ironing board or avoid this style altogether.

Chinos: This trend has been reigning supreme in the world of menswear for quite a while now which means you probably already own a pair or 2. Be bold this festive season and opt for a pair of white chinos to complement any navy, dusty brown and black pieces already in your wardrobe.

Women

Culottes: Because nothing says “I’m vacationing in St Tropez” more effortlessly than donning on a pair of (preferably white) culottes. The billowy silhouette achieves the perfect balance between casual and sophisticated and can be a genuine statement piece for your summer wardrobe.

Shirtdress: For a menswear inspired outfit with a feminine twist try a shirtdress which is one of the must have staples this summer, according to fashion mag Harper’s Bazaar. The great thing about the shirtdress is it’s essentially a blank canvas for you to accessorise and experiment with your personal style.

Gladiator Sandals: The gladiator sandal is another summer essential item that allows you to smoothly transition from drinks on a Saturday night to Sunday brunch. If you’re on the hunt for a pair, choose a versatile colour such as black or tan and a relatively simplistic design to ensure you can wear your sandals with everything from a shirtdress to your fave denim shorts.
