Summer ranges started hitting stores in July while you are probably not ready to even start thinking about shorts and tees. But if you are looking at buying a pair of trousers, consider getting set for the upcoming summer season with something new in blue. You may have seen this lighter trend in the international magazines - but that’s just because their summer comes before ours. Now that brighter shades of sky, cobalt and cyan have started filtering through in a more noticeable way down-under, they are touted as some of the strongest colours for the warmer months ahead. These bright blue chinos are just the right accent to a fresh white tee, or try layering hues by teaming them with an aqua shirt and blue suede belt. Look to Dr Denim and Ben Sherman for affordable styles.
