Stripes // Slim, thick, bright, or neutral—the timeless pattern gets an update. “Parallel lines in every direction play off each other for the most sensational layered look” — Ken Downing
Dark Denim // The casual-cool classic, edited. “This just in: Denim has returned to the dark side (in the best way). The newest styles have been making waves form New York to Pairs.” — Ken Downing
Exaggerated Sleeves // Voluminous, billowy, bell-shaped and bold. “A high-drama sleeve makes a statement instantly fresh evolution of the shirting trend we’re been seeing so much of.” — Ken Downing
Western Punk // The Wild West meets punk rock personality. “I’m seeing a strong nod to the ’80s in the new collections. I love this retro rewind of punk rock meets meets cowboy cool!” — Ken Downing
Florals // Freshen up with bright blooms. “Designers are unleashing the power of the flower with new graphic prints and unexpected embroidery.” — Ken Downing
Shade of Red // From bold and bright to deep and dark—sand every hue in between. “A masterful melange of reds creates a totally modern look. If you’re wearing just one hue, make sure there’s plenty of texture play to create the same effect.” — Ken Downing
Mules & Slides // Luxe slip-ons are the height of style. “My favorite footwear: All-access slides that are as easy to slip into as they are to kick off when you’re ready to take a dip in to the pool!” — Ken Downing
White Bags // Cool off with sleek bags in a neutral palette. “Bright idea! White bags are just right paired with the vibrant color palettes I’m seeing everywhere for resort.” — Ken Downing
