By June 9, 2013Fashion News
We at PAUSE are loving the Agi and Sam collaboration with Topman. These eggshell print tailored shorts are definitely a favourite of ours and here we have a way to style them!

The shorts speak for themselves so it is better to keep the rest of the outfit subtle. Pairing the shorts with a plain white tailored shirt is the easiest and most effortless option. From there you can either go formal or casual, and here we’ve gone for a more casual look with the cap and sneakers. For a more formal look, you could rock a pair of loafers and add a tie to the shirt. A perfect accessory would be a nice clean looking black bag like this one from Zara.

The tempered grey clouds finally decide to make way for blue skies and some partial evidence that the sun still exists is comforting. However this recent temperature of a fairly respectable 20ºC is enough warmth for us to start breaking a sweat as the party invitations are expected to increase tenfold. We’ve selected a number of items by OKI-NI to help you along the way.

We begin with these timely Maison Martin Margiela 8 men’s cable temple sunglasses. Handmade in Italy, these tortoise sunglasses are crafted from luxury materials, titanium alloy arms as well as featuring high quality lenses that absorb UV, UVA and UVB light protecting the eyes. Even if you decide to experience real sun by venturing abroad you will be doing so in refined summer style.

As for venturing from one event to another, we have the perfect means of transport; these Nike mens’s sunset Air Max 97 premium sneakers. These AirMax illuminate with a palette of sunset hues and feature a signature Air bubble and durable outsole with a fiery red insole setting the trainers ablaze.

Whilst those summer barbecues, parties and cookouts are in full swing, why not keep it cool with an impressive T-game. This Acne mens penn T-shirt is a classic breton stripe with a currently fashionable leather-effect block panel running around the chest. Like all garments shown, this T-shirt has been produced with premium cotton and a whole lot of style.

For those slightly chilly nights as you try to locate yourself back home, one could opt for this Christopher Kane Frankenstein sweatshirt. Inspired by classic films of the Hammer Horror genre comes this soft fleece-back cotton sweatshirt with a large distinctive print of Frankenstein’s monster. Something  unusual but is sure to impress those immersed within the fashion world.

This month, the PAUSE team will be reporting from Amsterdam. In addition to its many sensory delights, the Dutch capital is widely recognised as a fashion hub and over the next few weeks we’ll be picking out a few of our style favourites from the ‘Venice of the North’.

First up is Scotch & Soda | Amsterdam Couture. Affordable and right on trend, the Dutch highstreet label was relaunched in 2001 after substantial re-branding. Since then they have garnered praise for their rich detailing and experimental collections, characterised by an overriding European nonchalance.

Capitalizing on the current “all-over print” trend, the SS13 collection is dominated by Hawaiian florals, washed out tie-dye, flashes of Atzec print and colourful Bretons.

Our PAUSE pick has to be the Bowie slim-fit trousers – especially the ones emblazoned with a tiger motif.
