It is that time of the year where we get to store away all wool sweaters, hang up all our trench coats and unleash some lighter and more colourful clothing. Now that Spring has sprung, the birds are out and the trees are blooming but one question…is your style blooming too?
If you are a man and in need of some fashion tips for the season ahead, we’ve got you covered thanks to Ferreira Munoko – our resident men’s fashion expert.
Here are some of your basic fashion items to help you construct simple, stylish yet versatile outfits from your spring wardrobe for this warm season.
Short Sleeve T-Shirts
Have you ever heard that you can never go wrong with the color black? it is the same with a plain T-shirt too, you can wear it tight or loose but what is important is that it helps base a simple look. Always go for Pima cotton and Kent weng polo because they are the most suitable fabrics for the current weather conditions. One last thing: always make sure to own t-shirts in neutral colours like grey, white, navy blue and black.
Gents allow your legs to finally breath !,shorts should end just above the knee or a little higher. If you want to go a few inches above the knee, that’s totally fine too. For most guys, this means no longer than 9” shorts. Always make sure your shorts are in plain and pestle colors because they are easy to wear and style. Don’t be afraid to break the rules and wear SHORT SHORTS to show off that summer body you’ve been hiding through out the whole of winter.
Shirts (both long and short sleeve)
Make shirts your playground please Sir! button it down for a masculine sexy look or button up for an evening function to keep it a bit classy. Please do purchase printed shirts most likely floral prints for those hot pool days, pool parties or barbeques to make your look standout at all times, risk and wear it as long as you’re not afraid to show off those quads but also don’t be that guy Bro!
These will never not be needed, whether you want to go for a dressed down casual look or a complicated casual look, this is your person. A pairs of sneakers can be styled with any theme of dress code but it’s tricky when you have no idea what kind of white sneaker works for you, to be on the safe side please own a pair of low cuts be it Nike or none branded sneakers from Mr. price,Yet,Pep or Markham’s.
Now this is a huge umbrella but the top three must haves are sunglasses, bucket hat or cap and your watch. The first items on this list can give you an effortless edgy look but your watch does be your best friend, it is a fashion crime if your forget wearing one at any time when you are dressed up as a clean and modern man living in the 21sr century.
I hope these five essentials can brighten up your spring fashion route and helps your put two and two together and be as stylish as possible.
