After a winter that seemed to last an eternity, we have finally arrived in the warm summer months. The only problem with summer is that they often fly by so quickly that it's all too easy to miss them. Unfortunately, it's often the case that we only get fleeting glimpses of the sun, before we find ourselves slap bang in the middle of autumn again.
That's why when there actually is sunshine, you should get out there and make the best of it. And obviously you want to look your best when you're out there soaking up rays and topping up that suntan. So do not just pull on the same old tired clothes from last year's wardrobe get yourself some 2013 apparel. Then at least you'll be making an impact this summer, even if the sun does not.
Grand Scheme Supply Co Scribble Dot 5 Panel
We should not need to tell you just how hot 5-panels are in the world of streetwear right now. And with this cap, it's not hard to see why. Its simple styling and muted colouring just screams casual summer daytime cool. Try teaming it with a pair of lightweight chinos and a college-style sweater or hoodie, for a chilled out and fresh up-to-date look.
Penfield Hudson City Satchel (Yellow)
Both dinging and different, this bag incorporates some of this season's key trends to create a summer accessory that's stylish, practical and guaranteed to set you apart from the crowed this summer. Penfield have managed to put a fresh and unique twist on an old-skool classic. With its bright neon coloring, faux leather detailing and retro buckle closing, this bag is the must-have accessory this season.
Crooks & Castles Bandusa T-shirt
These guys seem to be going from strength to strength of late, and that success shows no sign of slowing down. We love this tee because it incorporates two of this season's key trends – bohemian influences and garish patterns, to create a truly original piece that you'd be crazy not to want to get your hands on. With vibrant hues of gold, blue, red and green, T-shirts do not come much more summery than this.
Asics Gel Saga Trainers – (Black / Peppermint)
We love, love, love these trainers! They've already sold out in a lot of places, so if you want to get your hands on a pair (and you've got to be insane not to!), You'd better act fast. This highly anticipated shoe was expected to make quite an impact in the industry, and it's done exactly that. And then some.
So, get your hands on any one of these pieces (or all four if you're feeling really flush!), And then even if we do end up having yet another disappointing summer, you'll still have plenty to smile about.
