With a new season rapidly approaching, the markets are beginning to fill with new trends. Spring Summer 2015 is an exciting one for menswear in particular as there is a real sense of accessible fashion for all budgets. I’m sure my husband won’t mind me saying this but he’s not really ‘into’ fashion. He dresses smartly for work in a smart shirt and suit and when he’s home he likes to be comfortable in a t-shirt, jumper and jeans. Having said that he does like to look smart if we go out for dinner opting for a nice shirt paired with smart jeans and shoes. It’s a look that allows him to feel comfortable and shows he’s made an effort in dressing to go out.
For Spring Summer 2015, the catwalk has been full of the ‘dressed down to go out’ trend; smart collared shirts with bold patterns, block colouring and minimal branding.
Take this Armani shirt for example, it’s got a bold checked print with minimal branding to the chest pocket that can be worn with long or rolled up sleeves teamed with smart jeans, chelsea boots or pumps, a winning combination for the ultimate dressed down to go out look.
My husband loved wearing this shirt on our recent break to Wales. We got dressed up for dinner and he felt really good. The shirt was a good fit and he looked smart. Definitely on trend with the ‘dressed down to go out’ look.
What’s your fella wearing this Spring Summer? Does he like bold patterns or is he more reserved and prefers to stick to block colouring? I think Shilts will be more adventurous with prints and patterns this year.
