With spring in the air, I think it is about time we focus on what we want men to wear this spring/summer. Because no matter how fabulous you may look in your new outfit, all of that glamour will disappear, if the man walking next to you looks like a boring drab.
The following list is my personal view on this season’s trends. So dear male readers, take pen and paper because here are the dos and don’ts for this spring!
Do: Flowers here, Flower there, Flowers everywhere
What better way to embrace spring fashion than by introducing some flowers into your wardrobe?
I love this nonchalant, casual version of flower print in the collection of Dries Van Noten, because even the biggest fashion nitwit will be able to pull off this look. (No offence 😉 )
And if you want to try something bolder, go for this oriental floral print by Prada.
Important side note: Make sure you don’t look like Hugh Hefner.
That’s a no no.
Do: Think Pink
To all the pussies out there, who are afraid to wear pink: Start simple with a couple of pink accents instead of going for the full pink look. This outfit from Versace shows you how it is done.
Once you’ve grown accustomed to showing some pink, why not try a pink jacket. This sporty yet classy coat from Lanvin is absolutely fabulous and über cool.
And last but not last, for the dare devils among you who like to shock with an overdose of pink: what about this flashy pink Tom Ford suit?
Don’t: Shorter than Short Shorts
I consider myself an admirer of the fit and muscular male body and I am usually a fan of men showing some of that fabulously tanned skin, but – dear God!- short shorts are just not flattering. Even the handsomest of men with the most amazing thighs would not be able to pull this off. It’s simply… too… short.
Don’t: Tune in for the Tunic
No matter how much they may have appeared on the runway this season; the well-tailored tunic is just a hideous example of experimental fashion gone wrong.
I mean, what the hell is this?
