“From bright colours and clashing patterns to boxy suit jackets and light wash jeans with frayed hems (or gulp! Even a crease ironed in), take your favourite elements of the Eighties trend and blend them with your existing wardrobe to create a look that feels fresh. Foot Locker in intu Derby has some of the most wearable 80s-inspired items, ready to don at any upcoming festival or holiday."

“Safari jackets, field jackets and Seventies-style military shirts are back. New Look Men in the upper mall at intu Derby has this trend on-point. I couldn’t resist this double-breasted denim jacket with zip-up fastening; it'll keep me on-trend right through until winter 2018.“

“Looks like the 90s are here to stay. I'm seeing baggy cargo trousers, matching indigo double denim, long belts that grazed the thigh and sweater vests…expect this trend to only get bigger as the season progresses. I headed to AllSaints to grab a classic short-sleeved shirt to layer up this summer."

“Looking to separate yourself from the crowd, or like your shoes to have a bit of character? Woven detailing can breathe life into even the most common slip-on silhouettes. While the skater-style slip-on trainer is still trending for summer 2018 (particularly minimal leather versions), a woven upper lends more of an eye-catching, dynamic finish to your footwear.

Some might argue that designs in tan and brown run the risk of looking a little like a naff wicker basket, but we say it’s a risk worth taking. The right woven style, will lend your summertime tailoring looks a classic sixties feel – think Jude Law in The Talented Mr. Ripley."

"Millennial pink", that infamous blush rose colour, is set to grow up next season and, believe it or not, is expanding into menswear. When we popped into Infinities, this set up had me blushing with FOMO!”

“Floral printed shirts are not a novelty, in fact if you wear them with the right thing and at the the right time, they will set you apart from the rest of the guys. However, don’t get these confused with a Hawaiian shirt, which utilise larger summery graphics, are repeated, and usually feature Hibiscus flowers. There’s plenty of variations in the shirt patterns that you can go for, so it’s worth having a good look around to find one you really like the look of.

There’s a couple of different ways to style the floral printed shirt. What you wear with it will determine how good the shirt looks, and whether you stand out for the right or wrong reasons, but always wear it with confidence!”
