Colours:

Stone and blue colour blocks are all over the catwalk for Spring / Summer. These cool, earthy shades sit perfectly with Pantone Colour of 2015 “Marsala”, a terracotta/pink tone which can be worn either as a highlight for example, a subtle pocket square, or top to toe depending how daring you feel.

Patterns:

Gingham is a definite must-have in your 2015 wardrobe for the warmer seasons. Team a stone beige jacket with a pastel gingham shirt or tie.

Fabrics:

The golden days of the 1930s and 1950s are back. Think tweeds, flannel, corduroy and heavy duty wools. These fabrics have been a prominent feature since the beginning of 2015 and are due to stick around in lighter-weight forms for the coming months.

Shoes:

A leather shoe in tan and chocolate, either as solitary colours or combined in a two-tone partnership, are walking us straight into the month of March. Of course, combine these with matching belt, watch strap and briefcase or bag.

Fashions come and go and it is certainly not necessary to abandon traditional tailoring in favour of the latest trend. Just add highlights of these colours and patterns to add a modern twist to your classic pieces. Use contrasting colour combinations and even bold colour blocks to breathe new life into conventional fabrics.
