The runway. That narrow flat platform of a ramp, which showcases the most creative forms of living art season after season. But here is the thing about art- most people do not wear it. And while the runway can be a resourceful barometer measuring what’s hot and what’s not, it is not always best used as a practical application guide. So gents, read on and see what runway looks you should be trying out this Spring/Summer…or ladies, just make sure you place the right stuff in your men’s closets for the season!
Rejoice gentlemen, because sheen fabric does have a place in your black tie wardrobe: luxe tux for the win.
The contrast of pastel can take away the edge and rough exterior, giving you a more approachable and relaxed air.
3. Double up
Try something new and get aboard the double breasted trend to show off those broad shoulders.
4. No Sweat
Skip those jeans and maximize your getup’s chill factor with some athleisurely sweats and kicks.
5. Cuff it up
Who says men cannot experiment with new lengths? Take your basic jeans to a retro look (a nod to bad boy original, James Dean) and don’t be shy: cuff them jeans!
6. Utility Gear
Military inspired looks are everywhere. Skip the all over camo pattern and opt for a chic’ed-up version of the parka overcoat.
There are many great solutions to the scorching weather that do not include culottes and cut offs, so keep than shin to yourself, Mister!
No to the floral, and no to the dress…really, don’t even try this!
3. Cute Gingham
There is always the need for some innovation when it comes to the basic suit. Gingham coordinates just probably are not the answer.
4. Lovely Lace
Shirts and coats alike are adorned with this delicate weave, but it may be too overpowering a contrast when paired with modern day sleek.
5. Slit Up
By all means, if you are working out all year long, try it out, but it may look more Sparta than sporty.
6. Shine On
Lamé doesn’t really carry on into the casual realm all too easily. Avoid the C-3PO droid-moda and avoid the all over metallic sheen.
