Get The Outfit: Summer Swag
With temperatures climbing, June just around the corner and Love Island back on our screens next week, it feels like summer 2019 has finally arrived! Time to chill, kick back in the sun with mates and let the good times roll because life can get the best of us sometimes! When it comes to summer style, it can be hard to get it right when your life is busy and it seems like there’s a new trend every five minutes. But don’t worry – as always, we’ve got you covered! Earlier in May, we introduced the first in our Get The Outfit series in which we showcased London models Ellis Downs and Matt Opping in two street casual outfits to give you some fashion inspiration, but also to give you an opportunity to see how good the clothes look on! Ellis is back for our second instalment, and this time it’s all about giving you that summer swag so that no matter what you get up to this summer, you’ll look stylish as hell doing it! We’ve got two looks that will have you covered no matter what the weather has in store, so take a look below for two high fashion, high style, head-turning looks that will definitely become summer wardrobe staples.
We think you’ll agree with us when we say that nobody would have been caught dead in a co-ord a few years ago. It’s as if the co-ord ran some kind of secret guerilla campaign to regain its former glory and every major fashion house embraced it passionately. Co-ords have become somewhat of a craze for summer 2019 and we’re fully on board!
Perfect for those who like to make a statement with their garments, the general rule with a co-ord is the more ostentatious the better. Kicking things off with Ellis who is sporting the Kenzo Midnight Blue swim shorts and shirt. These items aren’t sold as a co-ord set, but the design, featuring a floral pattern on a midnight blue backdrop, is identical throughout both pieces. This is the perfect summer outfit for keeping you cool on a hot summer day – lose the shirt and you can instantly take a dip!
The shirt is made from breathable cotton and has a convenient breast pocket. The shorts feature a comfortable elasticated waist, meaning this outfit is perfect for a long day of activity. Ellis has accessorised the outfit with a pair of classic Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses. These retro-style shades feature extra thick turtle-shell style arms and a gold tint, as well as gold trims, a Ray-Ban logo plaque and the iconic Ray-Ban branding to the lens. A touch of sophistication to finish off the perfect summer outfit for a hot day. You can get the Ray-Ban sunglasses here for £135.00, with the Kenzo shirt here for £160.00 and the Kenzo shorts here for £130.00.
Cooler Day Casual
Let’s face it, it’s likely that there will be a lot of days this summer where the mercury hasn’t quite risen enough for you to get your pins out. In that situation, you can never go wrong with a polo and jeans accessorised with your favourite trainers. Keeping things simple can often be when you’re looking most stylish, but by simple, we definitely do not mean boring! They can always be relied on to produce unique and intricate designs, and Valentino has once again delivered the goods. Ellis is wearing their Scale Logo Polo shirt, the design featuring the latest Valentino scale logo throughout. With bright pops of red, white and blue, this shirt is eye-popping for all the right reasons.
We’ve paired the loudness of the polo shirt with Mid-Blue Hyperflex+ Anbass Jeans from Replay. With comfort in mind, these jeans are totally perfect for a jam-packed day of summer fun as they are specifically designed to provide a slim fit that is flexible, allowing for a greater range of movement. On cooler days these jeans will stop the chill, as well as pairing perfectly with the Valentino polo for a look that screams casual chic. You can grab the Valentino polo here for £490.00 and the Replay jeans can be found here for £170.00.
