Guys, it’s time for a wardrobe shake up. With winter now a thing of the past, the temperatures are climbing and the long-awaited sunny days are here. So what styles will you be sporting this spring?
A timeless transitional piece that teams effortlessly with any look, we’re pleased to see the bomber jacket back in a big way for SS16. With a nod to the 1950s, bring the look up to date with different colours and materials. Versatile enough to wear either on the weekend or at work, a bomber jacket is the perfect piece for layering on colder days, or keeping you cool and comfortable when it heats up.
Take a relaxed approach this spring by channelling the free-spirited vibe of the 1950s. As seen on the SS16 runways, everyone from Raf Simons and Louis Vuitton to Lanvin and Canali sent 50s-inspired shirting down the runway. Think wide open necks, boxy shapes and lightweight materials. Whether you rock an oversized polo or a textured shirt, team the style with a tailored pant and slick back hair to complete the Fifties feel.
With the classic explorer look dominating many of the SS16 menswear shows, top pockets are a natural extension of this vibe. Featured on the outside of lightweight coats and jackets in neural hues, this detail is both fashionable and functional. Expect to see top pockets popping up on blazers too… you heard it here first.
Ideal for teaming with inky navies and vivid hues, the white denim and chino trend will be huge this season. Sent down the runways by Tommy Hilfiger, Dior Homme, Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein Collection, this clean and minimal trend will inject instant freshness into your summer wardrobe. Team yours with earthy tones for an easy-to-wear approach, or – if you’re feeling confident – with a bright white tee to make a real style statement. Just go easy with the Bolognese and red wine!
Final Word: Go Timeless
Trends aside, it’s always key to have a timeless suit in your wardrobe. An inky blue shade will go with pretty much any shirt or tie you team it with, making it just as perfect for the bar as the boardroom. Keep the look modern with a single-buttoned jacket featuring notch lapels.
