The frost hasn’t exactly cleared yet, and it’s probably too cold outside to break those shorts out. So with March rolling around the corner with its arsenal of fads, here are 5 fashion and accessories trends from Spring/Summer 2016 that you need to master for the seasonal transition. From the trending jacket to the top-billed colour, get a preview at next season’s threads, and begin shopping to get a head start. Fret not; they’ll keep you looking sharp and warm at the same time.

 1. DISTRESS AND IMPRESS

Blue jeans are a classic wardrobe staple – that we already know – but distressed blue jeans are making a comeback in a huge way. Whether bleached, faded or slashed, this season’s denim doesn’t hold back on the fray. With this pair from Balmain, pull out your best impression of James Dean by pairing this with a killer biker jacket and a fuss-free white tee.

2. EARN YOUR STRIPES

Give your suit a directional overhaul with a good lashing of stripes. Pay close attention to fit, and stay away from black-and-white stripes if you don’t want to look like Beetlejuice. With this Gucci suit, play it casual with a crew-neck jumper or clash patterns with printed fashions and accessories for maximum effect.

 3. THE NEED-TO-HAVE JACKET

Arguably the biggest trend of the season, the bomber jacket is the one item to tout for Spring/Summer 2016. Silk bombers lend a rakish air to your look, but if you want to play it safe, then opt for one in navy. We recommend this varsity-style jacket from Saint Laurent – its evergreen design and appeal will have you reaching for it more than a few times in the months ahead.

4. NO COLD FEET HERE

Sandals in a 10° weather isn’t such a crazy idea when your soles are bundled up in thick socks. To ace the look, start with a minimalist pair of sandals, and find a pair of socks in a similar colour. This pair of Prada sandals pair well with grey socks, but will look just as sleek when the weather warms up.

5. GREY IS THE NEW BLACK

Slate, graphite, coal – call it whatever you want, but grey is here to stay. The ashy shade made a big appearance in the styles of various fashion and accessories at fashion week, proving that sometimes, no-color is the best color to have. Start with a simple grey jumper – much like this one from Tom Ford – and experiment with different shades of greys for a dapper look.
