Spring Fashion for Men

The keyword for men this spring-summer season is comfort and of course, style, mixing and matching styles that blend nicely with wardrobe they already own, gives the idea that being fashionable can also mean affordable. Some men don't like to be too conservative and layer themselves too much with jackets, for this, consider using a dark tone vest with buttons in the front with a v-neck shirt in light colors. Minimalist layering is important this season; you don't want the hot weather to bother you as the summer starts.

Always use accessories to combine your look, like bracelets, necklaces and sunglasses. Avoid going overboard with these so you don't loose your elegance and transform you look into another one. Men also wear accessories like bags, this season; the satchel style bag is a must. This spring, scarves and handkerchiefs are back for that refined touch in a man's look.

About pants, straight cuts reveal a better presence, bell bottoms are way out of the picture nowadays, keep them in your closet just in case they come back or if you need them for a costume party. Also, cropped trousers reaching to above the ankle was seen in the runways. This style can be worn with very short socks or ankle boots. Some designers have even incorporated short shirts matching their business suits on their collections.

The season's color tendencies are almost the same, focusing more on grays and pearl whites, but don't forget that spring is all about colors and pastel pinks and oranges are back. For the more rebel ones, there is nothing better than pants in wild colors like green and yellow with comfortable printed cotton t-shirts. You have to be careful with graphics, don't think that because it is spring or summer, gigantic flowers are adequate, wrong, those designs are in the past, prints now tend to be smaller and in aquamarine, gray, purple or blue colors. Flowers and Hawaiian printed shirts are only acceptable when combined with beach Bermudas.

You should always search for the right type of fabric too; there are textiles for every season. This spring, the options are linen, cotton, and tropical wool, for a fresher and cooler feeling. The Jeans never go out of style; you just have to follow the type of cut within the season and the trends.

The realistic fact is that American men usually don't wear what they see in the runways, European men tend to be riskier with their look, they really don't care what people think of them, whereas American men are more conservative in this matter, of course, I'm talking about the general guy.

This year, a more tailored man will replace the baggy look from last year's fashion industry. This year, less is more; more choices, more styling, more classic.

Get ready for the upcoming fall-winter trends which include looks inspired by construction workers and Charlie Chaplin, plaid coming back again, and of course, plum will be the new black!
