Blue (on Blue): While autumn and winter were all about grey and purple, spring and summer feature saturated shades of blue. There’s also a big trend toward layering blue on blue in a sharp way, as exemplified through this suit.
Coloured Denim: It’s not just for the ladies anymore! The denim companies, like Paige, are all coming out with brightly coloured denim for guys to have fun with as well. Not sure about how to pull this look off? Begin with a basic tee or button down in neutral colours then move on to shirts with details that pick up on the colour of the denim.
Chambray Shirts: These shirts provide the perfect way to look relaxed and dressed up at the same time. While wearing denim on denim was once a fashion sin, since today’s styles are relatively flat washes and made of thinner material, you can pull it off. Or pair a chambray with khakis or trousers, if that’s easier for you to swallow. The point is that having one of these in your closet this spring and summer is a must.
Florals: Take a moment to stop and smell the roses! Florals are everywhere this season, from small details like the button lining on the polo above, to all over patterns. Think Liberty prints in masculine shapes.
Gatsby: With the upcoming release of the film version of The Great Gatsby and the huge success of Downton Abbey, the classic styles have returned to the runways. If you’re shopping for an up-scale occasion for the warm months, think: light, double-breasted, and preppy.
