Get More Colorful with Your Shorts
Canvas Shorts in Pepper Rally | $22.94 | Old Navy
As the weather gets warmer, you can start breaking out the shorts. This spring, men’s shorts are shifting toward more colorful styles with a slimmer leg. It’s a great way to add some life to your look and balances nicely with light neutrals like a grey or white shirt. Just remember that in general, it’s better to stick to one brightly colored item per look to keep things balanced.
Secret Wash Shirt in Spring Gingham | $64.50 | J.Crew
Always reminiscent of warm weather, a gingham shirt is a staple piece for any guy’s wardrobe. (Gingham is super hot for spring. Remember those gingham skimmers from 5 Trends to Prep Your Spring Wardrobe?) This lightweight shirt looks just the right amount of worn without seeming sloppy. The gingham pattern is subtle enough to work into your office wardrobe, and unique enough to wear out around town. Definitely worth the investment!
Often cited as the first thing a woman notices about a man, shoes are of utmost importance to the overall outfit look. If you’re going for a fresh spring wardrobe, you can’t go wrong with these chalk white classic sneakers. If you’ve already got a pair of white low-rise sneakers hiding in your closet, be judicious with yourself and decide if it’s time to toss. If they’re grey and stained, it’s time to say goodbye.
