It’s safe to say that summer is on it’s way and I’m hoping that you’ve all ditched at least some of of your darker shades and heavier knits! I want to focus on some Spring/Summer brights for the gentlemen who want to incorporate colour and prints into their wardrobe. I mean we’re in a perfect place in fashion where designers and brands have provided us with many different options to incorporate colour and made it easy to wear! I’ve put together a list of trend colours and key pieces that can easily be added or introduced into any wardrobe:
Next to black, blue is a colour that most men already have in their wardrobe and it’s the easiest of colours to integrate. Refresh your wardrobe by introducing a pair of fitted trousers, slightly cropped at the ankles that can be worn with loafers, think of a relaxed knitted cardigan for those cooler nights and a modern rendition of the polo shirt.
Although an extremely bright colour for some, we’ve seen a varying brightness this season in yellow in comparison to any other colour. From electrifying outerwear that’ll get attention anywhere or if your’re more subtle, a mustard yellow pant pairs well with neutrals and brown. But, if you really want to be ahead of everyone else, metallics are a fashion forward option this season!
Women have florals and we’ve seen that spring trend trickle into menswear but if you want a print for the summer season, look no further than something camouflage. If you don’t have anything camo printed, introduce the print to your closet with a bomber jacket which will be complemented by a plain t-shirt, a pair of basic trousers and a pair of sneakers – making it more casual to sport the trend. The same idea can be said with camo shorts or trousers – pair with a classic button down, a tailored blazer and pair of sandals or loafers for a smart look.
