HEATWAVE HEATWAVE HEATWAVE THIS IS THE BEST CAN’T SLEEP AT ALL BUT WHO CARES BECAUSE IT’S A HEATWAVE HEATWAVE HEATWAVE.
Oh yeah, here are some clothes to sweat in. Enjoy.
It would make sense, that in this weather, you would feel the overwhelming urge to submerge yourself in water at some point. Like, getting in water when it’s hot, makes you not hot - it’s science, but fun science. Thing is, bombing into a lido wearing jeans doesn’t really cut it and has the dangerous potential to set you up for some sort of detrimental nickname and/or reputation. Instead, get a reputation for having the pengest swimming shorts by whacking a pair of these naughty babies on before you belly flop off the high board, Mr. Daley.
It’s Pride, didn’t you know, so why not show your support by dressing for the occasion - this all-over print shirt will do exactly that. Great way of introducing yourself, too - don’t say a word, just point at your shirt. Really saves valuable time, it does.
A yes, and a big old please, too. Dr Martens have done it again, this time teaming up with ‘90s favourite Stussy to bang out a pair of monochrome loafers that need to be on your feet immediately. Like, immediately. Drop what you’re doing and put your goddamn feet in a pair of these before the world ends.
Sergio is back - the ‘80s retro staple is cool again (if you ask us, it was never not cool), so snap up a classic polo for the summer, if you know what’s good for you. This vintage piece is whipped up a notch with a striped sleeve detail - wear it with a pair of white tennis shorts and some Puma Classics and you’ll look The Business, make no mistake.
Vans have teamed up with the famous artist John Van Hamersveld for a series of exclusive designs on their classic slip-on - and these blue numbers are our pick of the bunch. With a bold motif mixed with the brand’s famous checkboard pattern, those hooves of yours will finally get the much-needed attention they deserve in these.
More pride-themed wear with this t-shirt from smart Swedish brand Weekday - it’s a simple piece with a powerful slogan, so if you want to show your support, whack it on. And then if you feel the need to whip it off and helicopter it around your head later, that’s absolutely up to you.
Got to rock a bit of rainbow this month, really, haven’t you? And why not sort yourself out a tote bag, while you’re at it, too. The perfect accompaniment to almost any outfit, a simple cream tote is a must-have accesory. And if - for some reason - you haven’t managed to acquire one for free yet (where do they come from? Why do I have so many?) then why not grab this sturdy one for a measley 20 quid?
It’s probably a good idea to own a pair of black sunglasses, because they go with absolutely everything. Thing is, with a pair of black sunnies, you run the risk of being a bit boring - you’re looking at Wayfarers or Clubmasters, basically - so spice it all up by going for a bit of a different frame. Take a risk and you’ll reap those UV-defending rewards, Captain 20/20 - enjoy!
Now that there, is a lovely jacket. Get yourself a lovely jacket. The thing about a lovely jacket, is it enables you to rush getting dressed in the morning - you don’t need to think about things too much. Just banged on a t-shirt and some jeans? Yeah, looks alright, nothing special - but slip on that lovely jacket over the top and hello, it’s pure sex walking down that high street. Get yourself a lovely jacket. Get a few. Three lovely jackets and you’re sorted - a dark one, a light one, a cord one, absolutely sorted you’ll be. Lovely jackets, they’re the future. As is going walking in the Yorkshire Dales apparently.
