Spring 2014 Male Fashion Trends
Although transitional fashion can be hard work, with the right care and attention it can be bags of fun to create and even more fun to wear. Giving you a chance to be a little different using some of your wardrobe favourites without having to buy brand new. We have chosen 3 pretty simple yet incredibly powerful outfits to aid your move from Spring to Summer for 2014.
Shirts of a check variety are still very much in, but must be done right. No cowboy tailoring or rolled up sleeves like a lads night out here. Choose a darker colour or small square check to add a little class to proceedings and make it pop with a lighter shade blazer. This grey one from Hackett is perfect. Then team with some dark jeans or coloured chinos and traditional brogues.

All in a Sweat
A wide neck sweater in pale or neutral colours is a must have for your wardrobe this year, and something we saw in abundance from the likes of Burberry during LC:M. Don’t be afraid to go over-sized slightly with a slouchy look that is perfect for longer evenings whilst out at the park, or BBQ time. Team with a striped shirt underneath for a little contrast, with a pair of light trousers or chinos for that perfect spring to summer look.
Sweater: Gant, £90 – Shirt: Gant – £90, Trousers: Ted Baker – £79, Boots: Gant – £180, Belt: Hackett – £75
Yes, it may be obvious, but still many guys don’t have a really well fitting go to blazer. And it really is the thing transitional dreams are made of! If you can only go for one, something a bit different is a must but it still has to go with lots of styles. A blue or grey is your perfect choice. Dress down with a striped t-shirt and desert boots for that more casual look that even works in the rain.
Blazer: Ted Baker – £299, T-Shirt: Barbour – £40, Trousers: Ted Baker – £79, Boots: Gant – £180, Belt: Hackett – £75
