Inspired by the clean lines, subtle curves and graphic shapes of the modern era, menswear, as a whole, embraces a multitude of moods and emotions as we gradually move and progress towards the other half of the fashion calendar. So, press, play and haul, fellas! The choices are endless.
Draw strength from dark uniform colours and hard architectural lines for that stark, power-laden look. But don’t forget to introduce an element of softness or sensuality, say, in the form of knitwear, a roll neck or even tassels on a classic pair of loafers.
Elsewhere, retain a sense of structure or formality even when it comes to your daytime lounging ensembles. Achieve a sense of effortless ease through a palette of soft earth-tones.
For a jollier stance to things, opt for small pops of print in your outfit to create a sense of movement, and as a contrast to the rigidity of the more structured pieces in your look.
Grey, in its essence, is a supremely calming colour, but also a serious one. Thus, you can easily play with architectural lines like bold check-prints or structured collar details as well as soft elements like paisley print or silk fabric when it comes to the concerned palette.
A printed sweater, formal shirt and loose-fitting trousers are all that you need to achieve the sophisticated smart casual look that feels a tad retro but still has a youthful edge to it.
Likewise, white sneakers, sweaters, cardigans, horizontal stripes, tartan, navy and emerald green all give the quintessential preppy look a playful, sporty twist, making the getup apt for the times that we live in.
