Our shopping lists are supercharged for the upcoming spring season and it is always better to be well informed on the seasonal trends. Finally the temperature start to become moderate and the time arrives when we wear lighter clothes. There is softer mood in the air and the urge to stay outdoor more often.
Consider the trends surfacing and the key items you can incorporate into your look and start plotting your wardrobe for the coming season.
Spring is characterized by quickly changing temperatures, so be ready to look at confused and not so prepared people on the streets either looking like they just came from a hurricane or headed to the beach.
But there is nothing to worry, for you we have witnessed some incredible menswear trends in all the London, Milan, and Paris, fashion weeks and we´re ready to present you the trends you need to master this next season.
1. Relaxed shapes
Whether it is the loose shape of jackets or easy fit of the trousers, they have been working their way up from the runways to the mainstream. The more louche way of dressing will be seen on streets and office this spring, to transition from formal to casual formal try out just one loose fit item in your total look.
The past years the skinny jeans was the most loved look, but the coming years people will be shifting towards this big change of dressing. Not going all the way flared but a straight leg is a fine option, especially when paired with a tailored denim shirt for the ultra-relaxed vibe. Can be a functional idea to wear something with weight like a wool-mix which settles nicely on your shoes.
2. Spring layering: waistcoat
The much stylish bodywarmer has in recent years been ushered in from the cold and completely restyled as a fashionable gilet (otherwise known as vest). A waistcoat is one of the best pieces of kit that you can invest in for the spring season. The small sleeveless vests provide invaluable protection from the elements and insulation for your core.
That means great protection for your core body temperature, whilst also providing quick and effective style regulation. Trend says wearing mostly tonal outfits – for example, wearing a whole outfit of blue or green shades, adding waistcoat of lighter tones for a spring feel.
3. Pleated high-waisted trousers
There’s no denying it at this point: pleated pants are still in style this spring. They are becoming the sign of being extremely stylish and are totally recommended. Neither too slim nor too loose fitting and thus they mark themselves of being timelessly stylish.
This spring calls for pleated high-waisted trousers in light fabrics of fresco wool, cotton, linen or a blend. High-waisted trousers with pleats can help disguise the winter belly we all have been carrying around.
Some men experience: that they have thicker thighs which are simply not accommodated by modern, slimmer cuts, but the pleated trousers are great news for them. The key to flaunt this spring’s major crush is to get yourself tailored trousers with some customisations of lapels. What are you waiting for? Get going!
4. Coloured tailoring
While going for a full suit or combining a broken attire try to go for tone on tone or the same nuaces of the colour for the spring. Nothing says trendy than experimenting with pastel colours this coming season. Head to toe in one colour like light blue, beige or off-white.
A whole new level of beige, salmon pink, nuances of deep greens and clay-inspired red or wine, a total look in any of these colours is going to prove a hit. The tone on tone dressing comes with a lot of options including a well fit tonal suit, light beige shirt paired with beige trousers or blue shirt and blue jeans accompanied by a very spring denim blue jacket.
5. Seriously stripey
Thinking about spring-summer and stripes together is not very groundbreaking. But this coming season is going to be seriously stripey. Spring is the start of what is going to be all about stripes in the summer season.
The most stripes are forecasted across T-shirts, short-sleeved shirts, polo shirts and tailored summer trousers. Vertical stripes find their place one more time towards the men’s wear fashion and would be seen on everything from scarves to tailored three-piece. In this case, seersucker becomes a modern wardrobe essential as its elegant stripe texture fits the trend perfectly.
With seersucker you could go for the full suit or there is always an option of pairing a well-tailored seersucker blazer any casual trousers. Call it more of the athletic wear influence—or, conversely, tux trousers of formal wear—but side stripes on trousers will be seen everywhere.
6. Dad denim
As much like the mom jeans for girls was hovering past few seasons, the dad jeans is taking over the streets this spring paired with the perfectly crisp tailored white shirt and sneakers. These denims make a clean and crisp spring attire when paired with a well fitted white shirt.
When thinking of somewhat warmer whether get your hands on the loose fit, light wash, unfussy and straight up and down dad denim paired with Chelsea boots for spring. This look calls for some spring layering in your favourite blazer.
7. Springtime polo
One might not realize but the long-sleeved polo shirt is going to be a great hit this spring. Let’s take a look at how to wear this year’s popular menswear trend. As a transition from cold-weather towards the warmer season the long-sleeved polo scores high numbers and can be worked into your outfits in a number of ways. From a simple base layer to a knitwear replacement.
Its crisp shape and the addition of a “shirt” collar give off a smart, refined feel yet the softer material never comes across as stuffy. Perfect for layering underneath knitwear, blazers or outerwear, the longer sleeves help retain warmth and allow you to utilise it as a standalone top layer during the transition into spring.
Ideal for smart-casual gatherings and office, the major dilemma here is whether to tuck in the polo or not. Try styling both ways and seeing which you feel most comfortable with and for more confidence boost always go for a tailored polo shirt.
8. Contemporary separates
In order to pull off a more relaxed look, while still maintaining the sharpness that is garnered from a suit, you could pair more casual clothes with a jacket. This, for obvious reasons, is by far the most versatile way of wearing a suit. A smarter jacket can be paired with a more casual pair of chinos and shirt, without a tie to create a fairly smart casual workwear look.
Earthy tones are on the rise to give the effect of warmer temperatures, ochre mixed with olive green for a palette, inundated with the vibe of spring. For a broken suit casual weekend look, try a colorful combination like white or khaki chinos with your favorite suit jacket for a balanced blend of elegance and refined relaxation.
Squares work really well as separates this spring, as a whole suit in squares is little too much.
People’s closets are full of sneakers, and they are looking for something different. Spring is always the time to start experimenting! The key to pull off the loafer trend is to focus on the details and materials.
With their sleek and gleaming finish, leather loafers make the perfect punctuation mark for smarter looks, however, suede designs also have a slightly more casual feel which looks absolutely chic especially when paired with tailored pieces.
Go ahead create your wardrobe for the transition from transition season.
