Menswear waits for no one so, while we might still be able to see our breath indoors, it’s time to start looking ahead to see what’s set to be big once the temperatures pick back up. This guide will help with navigating the latest menswear trends for Summer 2016 wardrobe.
Bomber Jacket refers to a garment jacket type originally created for military pilots. They eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. Bomber jackets are versatile for casual days and keep looks cool and comfortable.
Overall is a type of garment which is usually used as protective clothing when working. Some people call an overall a “pair of overalls” by analogy with “pair of trousers“. The recent menswear Summer 2016 collections referenced a nod to mechanic-like overalls, showcasing them in dark blacks, cool toned denims and dusky greens.
Fashion in the 1950s is brightly colored clothes and accessories. Balance out this trend with a tailored pant and accessories with darker wayfarers for a true fifties vibe. This silhouette works perfectly in darker tones as well as powder hues, but contrast is key when combining colors, to sustain a more polished look.
Particularly great for summer weather, keep short shorts bright with colors like blue, green and yellow for beach days or interpret this trend with more tailored styles in an array of subtle, darker colors for versatility with simple button down shirts.
White Chinos & Trousers
Incredibly complementary with deep navies and pops of bright colors, the white denim and chino trend is worn best with accessories like dusty brown boots and belts. Style the white pants with traditional cable knits and patterned sweaters for preppy takes on vintage cricket attire or combine white denim with washed out chambray button down shirts for a classic weekend look.
