The classic pattern is back and bigger then ever next S/S which is great as some of this seasons key pieces can be transformed into both, such as this very Saint Laurent-esque striped jumper in a light knit which can be easily transformed with a pair of chino shorts and either loafers or deck shoes for a fashion forward summer look. If you have a more formal occasion, this central striped shirt, also by Zara, can easily be used for both due to it being easily styled due to the simple monochromatic palette. Finally every guy needs a 3/4 sleeve top for S/S as you can easily roll the sleeves up for a tshirt look and then when its slightly chillier in the evening, just roll it down again.
Floral is back, bigger and more obnoxious then ever this S/S with large prints in a multitudes of colours and styles. This snapback gives a real pop to any plainer summer outfit, or would look amazing against a white short sleeve shirt and super pale skinny jeans. This darker floral tee is perfect for now and Spring, as it'd look edgy under a leather biker, but also casual with usual summer attire. On the other end of the scale, this loud and outrageous tee from Bite by Dent is a brilliant transitional piece as it nods to the more luxurious trend for A/W13 but then would add some serious punch when teamed with the more neutral tones of S/S14.

Whites never been hotter, as it makes seasonal colours for A/W pop such as deep burgundy but also adds a new dimension to colours such as tan and caramel, but also looks amazing in the S/S with bold brighter colours and loud prints. For footwear, you can't go wrong with a pair of Converse, which can be dressed up for day to night in the A/W but then teamed with rolled up trousers and shorts. This Zara tee leans towards the always on trend sports aesthetic as its a lighter tee with a faux vest underneath so it gives the idea of a layered look without the bulk. Teamed with black jeans and a pair of suede chelsea boots, the tee could also be layered with drop crotch shorts in the summer for a laid back look. Finally, leather is still a major trend for A/W and S/S so this pure white tee with faux leather sleeves is the must have for both seasons, teamed with anything.
