Living in the real world… we don’t mind if the world orbits around a particular form of fashion, particularly, the urban slick of DKNY Jean’s newest collection. Sporty and yes, functional, we won’t be crying to our mama with threads this cool.

Don’t need to break a sweat over what to wear, just throw on a mesh tee and you’re good to go. There are the usual bold stripes, block numbers and square cuts that define the sporty trend, yet these are especially appealing with neon piping. And if you’re worried about looking too much like a fitness freak, pair the look with silver shoes, midi skirts, or put on a scuba-inspired A-line dress to breeze through the day.

Boo to couple wear, but we’re incredibly partial to raiding your boyfriend’s wardrobe for a piece of manly action. Unisex jeans, baggy cuts, and oversized jackets rank high on this list, whether you’re going for tough, polished, or laidback.

If you’re the kind who gets easily bored at any mention of the word “minimalist”, this one’s for you. Full of clashing prints, the trend capitalises on the “more is more” spirit – think Times Square – and makes use of traffic signs, digitised prints and graffiti florals for an eye-boggling effect. Monochrome’s usually a safe bet right… we take that back.

There’s a bit of 70s influence in this, though it definitely steers clear of hippie flower crowns; this time, it’s sleeker cuts, with handpicked elements. Hence, a hint of dip dye on knit dresses, some acid wash here, and quite a bit of faded denim. As for the tattered jackets, we’ll say this – let it rip!

DKNY Jeans Spring collection is priced from $85 for a tee to $320 for a woven top, available at DKNY Jeans stores, including Forum The Shopping Mall, #01-05/06.
