SS21 McArthurGlen Menswear

Top Picks for Him

Menswear falls into two distinct camps for spring/summer 21, with eye-catching patterns going head-to-head with minimalist black and white co-ords as seen at the likes of Luke. Opting for the former means walking out in Tiki-inspired and hibiscus floral patterns, reminiscent of retro Hawaiian shirts. It’s a strong look, not to be outdone by the tie-dye resurgence – last big in the ‘90s – making a comeback in men’s athleisure-wear.

Along with an appetite for retro prints in bright colours, spring/summer for him is also championing a number of understated outfit choices he can get behind. From pastel tailoring from BOSS and Moss Bros. to the desert tones of the Modern Safari trend, being in style for SS21 is as easy as choosing the right colour. Seek out summary shirts from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger, beige and straw chinos from Levi’s and monochrome polos from Gant.

Top Picks for Her

Spring/summer 21 for her is all about soft romantic shapes and outfits you can move in, so be prepared to shelve skinny jeans and structured separates for looks with a more laidback silhouette. Even tailoring is embracing a free-flowing aesthetic; with relaxed suiting from the likes of REISS and Ted Baker one of the biggest trends she’ll be looking to adopt this season. Seek out Bermuda shorts in place of skirts, jackets that look one size too big and, for the ultra-brave, bear your midriff in a signature Calvin Klein or Guess bralette – a staple of new season tailoring for her.

Dress-wise it’s all about two key styles for SS21: the satin spaghetti strap and the LWD (Little White Dress). If prints are more your style, go ultra-bold this season with statement stripes and florals from the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and Hobbs.
SS21 McArthurGlen Athleisure

Essential Althleisure

From no-nonsense black and white co-ords from the likes of Lacoste to playful prints from Under Amour, sportswear and athleisure-wear is everywhere for SS21, coming through in a kaleidoscopic range of patterns and colours. Among the shorts, t-shirts and hoodies hitting the shelves, you’ll find bold geometric prints and old-school tie-dye in highlighter hues. Bucket hats are another key athleisure-wear staple this season, while bum bags – a ‘90s stalwart – are making a revival in bright block colours.

Performance enhancing sportswear is also a big trend for SS21 as the dawn of longer days sees the appetite for outdoor sports developed during lockdown continue. Look for vests and t-shirts from the likes of adidas in smart sweat-wicking materials and running shoes that can support your gait as you make those park runs. Asics is also great for stylish sportswear that serves a practical purpose, while Superdry is your go-to for athleisure-wear fashion staples.

On Trend Accessories

Forget oversized bags stuffed to breaking point. SS21 is all about dainty clutches and compact pouch bags that won’t weigh you down. So hang your leather tote up until autumn and give your satchel the summer off, as you switch out roomy and practical for slender and ultra-feminine bag styles from Radley, Kate Spade and Coach in shades to match the lightness of the season.

Shoe-wise she’ll want to show off a little skin now that winter’s chill has subsided and nothing is more on-trend for SS21 than a rope detail sandal. Think nautical knots in natural string hues and wedges with a raffia wrapped heel – check out Kurt Geiger’s latest arrivals for these. Meanwhile, he’ll be looking to step out in black sliders and white trainers from brands such as adidas, along with suede loafers from the likes of Gant and Ted Baker – all of which pair brilliantly with relaxed tailoring.
