Top Terrace Picks of the Summer: Our Favourite Pieces | June 2020
Shannon Firby on Wed, Jun 10, 20
Terrace fashion has really taken off over the last few years, combining a mixture of both the utility look and laid back casual pieces. With styles originating from the world of football culture, key pieces involve track tops, sneakers and hooded jackets, all coming together to create your ideal match day look. Today, we’re taking a look at some our favourite pieces in terrace fashion with offerings from brands such as Marshall Artist, Pretty Green and Fred Perry.
Pretty Green is one of our favourite brands for helping you to capture the terrace look, and this quirky brand is perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement. One of our top picks is this Marshall Logo T-Shirt in the vibrant green - a versatile shade that stands out in the crowd. The slim fit design will create a sleek silhouette and it’s finished off with cut and sew branding, featuring the iconic paisley logo. What’s not to love? Alternatively, for something a little more low key, this Likeminded Chest Badge Polo may be more your taste. The navy colouring keeps things smart but laid back, while the red and white tipped collar and cuffs give a little contrast.
Don’t forget about the accessories too - we love this Logo Bucket Hat which is one of our latest arrivals and combines retro style with a modern edge thanks to the bright and bold purple colouring, making this one accessory you need in your casual summer wardrobe. Purple not your colour? Fear not, as you can choose from navy and a refreshing light blue too.
When dealing with the great British summer time, it’s important to be prepared for all weathers, particularly when the temperature takes a dip. A stylish track top is just the thing you need for when things get a little on the chilly side, and this Edzell Contrast Panel Track Top is a classic choice. Inspired by classic 90s track tops, this will certainly add a touch of retro style to your look.
We couldn’t take a look at the terrace trend without a rummage through Fred Perry’s latest offerings, and there’s plenty to choose from to help you effortlessly pull off the look. We’ll start with another of our favourites in the track top department, which is this Taped Laurel Track Top, ideal for standing out this summer. The classic track top design is given a modern twist with the help of this bright gold colouring, but it doesn’t stray too far from tradition either, as it keeps to the traditional style with the help of taped branding on both sides.
If you’re wanting to go for something a bit different to the usual track top, this Global Embroidered Sweatshirt is a great choice for smart casual occasions. Sticking to the classic sweatshirt style, this simple piece keeps things neutral with the soft butter icing colouring, combined with three colour Fred Perry branding to the chest. Not only an ideal piece for summer evenings or chillier days, this sweatshirt will also feel at home in your transitional wardrobe as we edge nearer to autumn too.
When it comes to the classic tee, Fred Perry doesn't disappoint there either, and this Embroidered Panel T-Shirt is a great example of what they do best. While it features a simple panel design, the contrasting navy and white make sure this tee is anything but boring. Finished off with Fred Perry branding to the centre panel, this is one wardrobe staple you’ll need this summer.
Marshall Artist also features some great terrace looks in their latest offerings too. One of our hottest picks is this Siren Half-Zip Funnel Neck which is ideal for cooler days and the ‘in-between season.’ This simple piece will ensure that you stay protected from the elements on those days when the weather isn’t quite at its best with a whole host of features including ribbed trims and funnel neck, all finished with Marshall Artist branding to the chest.
When it comes to tees and polos, there’s plenty to choose from there too, whether you’re wanting to go for a smart casual look or chilled and laid back one. For smarter occasions, we love this Siren Short Sleeve Polo Shirt in this vibrant sky blue, which is perfect for wearing in the sunshine and enjoying a few pints. Alternatively, for a more relaxed look, this Liquid Air T-Shirt is a great choice for summer and will ensure you stand out, thanks to the contrasting colour stripe in the centre, giving the classic tee a real contemporary feel.
Of course, when you’re rocking the terrace trend, it’s not all about the top half. You need something stylish on the bottom half too. One of our favourite picks is these Liquid Nylon Track Pants, which are designed with the classic military fit along with tapered legs, allowing for a super sleek silhouette that will ensure you stand out.
Finally, let’s take a look at what C.P. Company have to offer - as a brand that’s known for capturing the utility trend so well, their pieces will instantly fit right in with the casuals. We’re especially loving this M.T.T.N Special Dyed Medium Jacket, which is perfect for anyone who wants to make a statement. Expertly crafted with C.P. Company’s signature Multi Tension Trilobate Nylon fabric, this piece is highly water-resistant but super breathable, making it the perfect jacket for summer. Featuring a whole host of practical features too, including plenty of pockets and full zip closure, it’s finished off with iconic goggle lenses to the hood too. Be warned though, this is one piece that’s sure to make you the envy of your mates.
There’s plenty to choose from in the shirts department too - we love this Arm Lens Zip Shirt, which is a popular choice. Giving the classic shirt a modern twist, this contemporary piece features some of the brand’s signature details including the goggle lens to the sleeve, giving this smart and stylish shirt a bit of military edge. For a more laid back look, this Jersey 20/1 Blur Logo T-Shirt is also sure to turn heads for all the right reasons. This premium white tee features a contrasting blue logo graphic to the front, making it the ideal colour combo for summer!
Finally, we have this Pouch Pocket Crew Neck Jumper, which keeps things simple. The straightforward single colour design makes this a highly versatile piece for your wardrobe, but the addition of the sleeve and chest pockets which have been crafted in a contrasting material adds a little something different to your average jumper. Again, finished with C.P. Company’s iconic goggle lens, this is one piece you need in your wardrobe all year round.
So there you have it, just a handful of our favourite terrace picks you can add to your wardrobe this summer. If this has got you inspired, be sure to take a look at our full collection where you’ll find even more pieces that will help you work this trend. With further offerings from the brands we’ve mentioned here, along with styles from the likes of Fila, Lyle & Scott and Emporio Armani, there’s truly something for everyone.
