Military Style

The print to be seen in, it’s time to fashionably arm yourself for the new season with a splash of camouflage. Added to even the simplest outfit, a khaki printed accessory will elevate your look in an instant as well as effortlessly injecting some colour. And the army-inspired pattern isn’t just limited to khaki – for a bolder approach why not try a multi-coloured version?

The rules are simple, be anything but hidden in camo this Autumn, just perhaps don’t wear it head to toe unless you really are joining the army…

The Most-Wanted Shoe of the Season…

It’s the hottest footwear trend of the summer to be seen in. We’re talking about the chunky trainer trend and we are big fans here at SOLETRADER.

A modern take on a retro style, the boldly coloured, chunkier-than-your-average trainer is definitely having a moment and the good news is it’s set to stay that way well into next season too. So now’s the time to get on board and raise your trainer game (quite literally) with a pair.

Here are our simple rules on how to wear this androgynous sports shoe in style…

Clash – contrast the masculinity of this trainer with floaty dresses and ladylike skirts.

Keep it simple – go back to basics. The easiest way to wear these shoes are with a rolled up pair of jeans and a t-shirt.

Smarten them up – although trainers tend to give off an off-duty vibe, don’t be afraid to make this style work harder by pairing them with tailored pieces.
