I wouldn’t say that I’m one of those miserable people, who seem so put out by the winter season but I sure am glad when we see the back of it! Don’t get me wrong, the winter isn’t entirely unbearable however it can be a bit boring when you’re trying to look as stylish as possible.
Winter style is good but when you’re limited to knitwear and coats so thick you risk looking like the kid out of Home Alone; it can get a bit mundane. With the spring however, although the weather isn’t 100% warm, the ability to ditch the countless layers and where something other than brown can be quite refreshing to say the least.
Whether you’re into your fashion like me, whether you try to keep up with the latest trends as much as possible or you just go with the flow; the coming spring season brings with it an endless number of style opportunities. You don’t have to be completely outlandish in your style choices but this spring there is no reason why you cannot look like a well-groomed gentleman that knows exactly what he’s doing.
Ready to get a bit braver with your wardrobe choices; here are the top tips to keep in mind this season…
- Runway – The 2015 Spring/Summer runway shows have been inspired by the 70’s. I’m talking lots of denim, bright ombre colours and some very brave print’s. These look great on the runway and have really got people talking but complete looks might not work so well for the average Joe. Whether one of the trends appeal to you or all of them do, try not to dive straight in, take it a step at a time and mix and match. In an attempt to look exactly like a runway show you could end up attracting attention for all the wrong reasons.
- Shape – There are a lot of great items that both high street and men’s designer labels will have available but you have to remember that not every item will work for every man. Again tying in with the above point, don’t overdo anything just because you’ve seen it on the runway. Perhaps consider trying one thing at a time and see how you feel; particularly if it’s a new material and fit that you’re not used to. From skinny denim jeans to tight tees and tailored short jackets; not every style suits every man so practice and get used to what your body type best.
- Invest – I love high street brands but whatever the season I always try to ensure that I invest in at least one designer pair of shoes. It seems a bit much but what helps a man’s style stand above the rest is the quality of his footwear. From quality footwear for the office to a pair of stylish trainers or brogue’s that I know I’ll use all summer; whatever the season and whatever my personal style choices; investing in the right quality footwear can help me stay a step above the rest.
With spring around the corner, you don’t have to be a style guru to know that now is the time to really bring your wardrobe to life. From embracing the latest trends, to sticking to what suits you best, to always ensuring that you always have lasting quality in your choices; fashion is always unpredictable but by staying one step ahead, you can ensure that whatever season arrives, you’re style always leads the way.
