After the hype of popular TV programme ‘This is England’ came the revival of 80’s ska fashion. Particularly popular in menswear this trend has seen many brands such as Fred Perry and Ben Sherman making a comeback… but there not the only ones.
With some awesome affordable pieces to go towards creating your ska themed wardrobe here are our favourite brands at the moment:
It’s all about owning the perfect jacket if you want to make this look come together! Insight have a range of different pieces in order to complete this look to suit your personality…
For the more sporty guy why not try the ‘Keeping it Tight’ track jacket available in red and black. Try wearing completely zipped up under the chin with a pair of skinny denim jeans and a training shoe.
If you’re aiming for more of a ‘mod’ look why not try the check Harrington coat? Our favourite, this piece would look just the part worn open over a contrasting check shirt (Insight blue and orange check shirt)… button to the top and tuck into your skinny jeans to get the true ‘skinhead’ look.
Finally, for the smarter guy these black tailored trousers are perfect for achieving the look without opting for the more casual denim. Team with a long sleeve check shirt and an unbuttoned Pea coat, and for the more daring fashion goers why not add a pair of red braces and tuck into a pair of burgundy docs.
We love this Peardrop red polo shirt by Ringspun! Its bang on trend whist the printed branding on the back gives it that modern edge! The button down collar is a cool touch and we love the military style detail on the shoulders. Wear sleeves down or roll up for that true 80’s feel! Team with a darker denim skinny jean and matching burgundy docs!
These trendy Elivs Jesus polo shirts do all the work for you! With detail running down the front of both pieces it gives the illusion of braces and the contrasting button down collars make these shirts stand out in a crowd! The Keither navy polo shirt has that extra detail on the back with a red applique design and the brace design is continued down the back on the Kendric white shirt. With these pieces you can achieve that ‘skinhead’ look without even trying! To stick to the theme wear with skinny jeans and an open denim jacket!
Finally it’s all about adding personality! If you’re feeling confident then why not try wearing this Gio Gio cotton Bucket hat? It just gives your outfit those finishing touches…
Last summer fashion was all about the hippy vibe of the 70’s but this year we’re taking a step back even further to the glamorous 50’s. We’ve already seen hints of this era making a revival with the launch of the very popular midi skirt, and this year it’s all about structure and femininity.
The Paris s/s catwalks were all about the couture 50’s shapes, classic cuts and strong silhouettes with designers such as Balenciaga, Comme des Garcons and Jil Sander showing us just how the 50’s look is done! However, this trend isn’t just a fling for the summer as Celine proved to us last week at Paris Fashion Week… the headline act in her stunning collection were a series of amazing boyfriend fit coats in an array of bright colours (our favourite being the pink).
So here at The Fashion Networkwe’ve jumped straight on the 50’s band wagon by bringing you this fabulous series of coats perfect for adding that much needed hint of glamour to your wardrobe.
This Topshop Boutique canary yellow coat is the perfect addition for your s/s wardrobe! Similar to a coat worn by Audrey Hepbrun it’s the Queen of the 50’s revival. Keep it simple when styling this piece, as the cute front tie fastening adds just the right amount of femininity. Wear over a simple dress and team with black leather gloves and heels. To add that even greater Hepurn touch tie your hair up in a bun and expose that stunning collar.
If you’re looking for luxury then this stunning hot pink Linea double breasted coat is perfect. Not far from resembling the pink fur coat featured in Celine’s fall 2012 collection this is without a doubt our favourite! Made from a wool blend with added cashmere this super soft coat will have you feeling every bit as glamorous as you look. To stay true to the ‘boyfriend’ look wear with a cropped cigarette pant and a super cool pair of brogues.
This Gilinix double breasted coat is another great piece when it comes to adding a strong 50’s look to your wardrobe. Again another ‘boyfriend’ style coat it’s shaped like a men’s blazer for that perfect straight down fit. A similar cut to coats featured in Celine’s fall 2012 collection the large lapels add great detail and the check navy tweed gives it that little hint of quirkiness. Try rolling up the sleeves to a ¾ length and wear over a tailored suit for that true 50’s vibe and when wearing in winter add a fur scarf for even more glamour.
