Individuality and self-expression sing loud and proud this season with easy-to-wear trends that will bring youthfulness and energy to your beach to bar (and later, to office) look.
T-shirts are as prominent as ever in menswear this season. Think James Dean and Marlon Brando in their white tees and jeans and you’ve got yourself a timeless look. If you prefer a brighter canvas, pastel tones by Lacoste bring a suffused pop energy to your look. Graphics and geometric patterns from the likes of Guess and Converse round up an eclectic season for tees - just the glue you need to bind a vibrant and casual wardrobe together.
Make way for two hot trouser trends: casual on the one hand and semi-formal on the other. Semi-formal trousers are oozing with sophistication this season, with loose-fit linen and cotton styles by Brooks Brothers and Levi's helping to elevate your look.
Remember formal shoes? Well this season’s shoe trends are more casual and light-hearted. Refined shoes by Timberland lead the way from beach to bar, while sliders (a big hit in recent seasons) are still being spotted far from the pool. Sneakers have changed direction slightly, with the chunky, clunky styles making way for the more sleek, minimal white or pastel low-top versions by the likes of LiuJo Uomo. Even the smarter end of the shoe spectrum is bathing in a more casual light, with loafers coming woven and sandals getting a leather makeover such as Carlo Pazolini.
