Fashion evolves from year to year and changes as the seasons change welcoming emerging, new trends. While they often fade out after a couple months, a season or even a few years, some trends make comebacks and flaunt it for one final encore. Although some comeback trends are welcomed with open arms, others are better off kept in the past.

This years spring trends are the kind we welcome with open arms. From metallic-coloured footwear to stylish bombers and daring new bikini bottom cuts, we’ve got a collection of trendy products that are sure to keep your fashion flame flickering.

Bomber Jackets

A bomber jacket is a short jacket similar to a flight jacket and often has a thick lining on the interior for insulation. In the old days, they were often worn by bomber fighter pilots hence the name. 

While the fashion bombers don’t usually have this thick insulation lining, some are designed for the winter elements and will be insulated such as the Canada Goose Chilliwack Bomber

This seasons bomber trend applies to men and women and there are multiple brands designing their own models which although are very similar, will have slight differences in details unique to their own brand. Check out our favourite bomber picks from SOIA & KYO, Mackage and more.

Caps

Accessories are to your outfit what the cherry on top of a sundae is; the finishing touch. While hats have never really gone in or out of style, the design and look of the hat itself has. There is a whole evolution to the hat and a variety of styles from baseball caps and five-panels, to wide-brim hats and finnean hats.

As the hat has evolved through the years, so have the trends. While finnean hats and tiller hats are making a visible and stylish comeback, this season’s hat trend is all about caps and tech hats. Dig through your parents old clothes bin and find that retro-looking, but totally stylish cap and rejuvenate its fashion flare. 

So add some sizzle to your wardrobe and bring new life to your hat collections with styles from Herschel Supply Co., Nixon and more.

Stretch Waterproof Shells

Choosing apparel and gear that enhance your performance while being active and pursuing your favourite actives rather than impeding your movements is essential. When you’re focus isn’t channeled in on the climb, ride or hike ahead of you, you risk putting yourself in an unforgiving situation where consequences may occur.

The next trend for this years spring summer collection is stretch waterproof rainshells. That’s right, rainwear that adapts to your movements rather than impeding them. We’ve all been there on a hike at one point in time, when the skies opened and the rain began pouring down and that raincoat you brought along created more frustration than it did convenience.

Rainwear has evolved and now you can find the perfect waterproof shell that’s comfortable to wear no matter what activity you’re doing. Thanks to the The North Face Apex Flex GTX jacket and Columbia’s OutDry™ Ex Stretch Hooded Shell, you can say goodbye to uncomfortable and restricting raincoats and hello to stretch waterproof shells.

Recycled Technical Apparel

Recycled fabrics and materials are a way of the future although thanks to Patagonia’s lead in producing environmentally friendly designs for outdoor apparel, that future isn’t so far way. Columbia and Fjällräven have also made a step towards designing recycled technical apparel and produced some models of their own. 

When you take the amount of outerwear produced every year, that’s a lot of materials and fabrics to be manufactured using chemicals and other substances harmful to the environment. At this rate of production, there is also a lot of wasted materials and fabrics finding their way into landfills, slowly suffocating the earth beneath.

When companies like Patagonia take a stand and devote their brand to eco friendly products and productions while inspiring other companies such as Columbia and Fjällräven to do the same, it shines a small ray of light on the future of the production of outerwear and outdoor gear. Try it for yourself and shop for recycled technical apparel and follow the trend for a greener future.
