This backpack from Herschel that is perfect for everyday use is the ideal piece to get this trend covered.
Both military inspired clothing and functional details such as multiple or oversized pockets are going to be trending this season, so it is no surprise that cargo shorts are set to be a popular choice this summer. A pair of cargo shorts will definitely be your best friend during the warmer months, on-trend, functional, easy to wear and will keep you cool – you can’t go wrong!

Investing in some simple polos or t-shirts in this colour is all you need to dress this trend – couldn’t be easier! Pairing this shade with grey and hints of white is the way forward according to this season’s collections. This polo from Pretty Green is the perfect option for its versatility, as it can be worn smart or casual and has a simplistic yet stylish design.
Both distressed and patchwork denim are going to enjoy a spell of popularity this year and the best way to pull this off is to invest in a pair of subtly distressed jeans that can be paired with almost any tee, polo or shirt – meaning you’ll be stepping out wearing the trend more often. Distressed doesn’t have to mean messy, the slim fit and minimal distressed design of this pair from Armani Jeans will allow you to wear this look whilst still looking smart.
