This is a bit of an odd one to write from a lady (dare I call myself that? Answers on a postcard please, enemies need not apply ) I’m waving the mum of 3 boys card here to say I qualify as someone who could have an opinion on what would look good on a man. So if you’re wondering how to step seamlessly into spring then read on as I share some ideas on looking casual yet cool.
Go Spring Green!
Layering is still vey much the key, Spring can catch you out quickly switching from warm sunny mornings to chilly late afternoons or vice versa. So shirts, crew necks and a light jacket work well. Green is going to be big this year, think muddy, countryside greens and only in one item, head to toe and you’ll be stepping out like Kermet. If you’re tailoring then subtle blues and browns compliment it well. For a really fresh spring look, like the Pegasus moss stitch crew neck sweater from Chums
will work perfectly.
Checks are big this year
Checks are also on the 2017 fashion radar, the classic Prince of Wales check print on a knit wear is probably one of the easiest ways to wear it although the more braver can opt for a check trouser in subtle grey aired with a plain crew neck jumper. And if you’re wearing a polo shirt under, according to esquire.com
collars who’ll always be worn in unless you’re going for a John Belushi look.
Play it safe with Neutrals
And finally, neutrals are still going to be the more subtle theme for this year and are the perfect spring tone to bring you out of a dark themed winter wardrobe. Where are previous years they were used to compliment brighter tones, this year it’s all about neutrals in varying shades. Think lighter browns, beiges greys and creams.
So no big shockers there, spring fashion is all about loosing the darker colours, stepping out of your comfort zone and being brave!
