Just like for women’s fashion, florals are still going to be big this season. You might feel totally comfortable pulling off some floral pants, as shown in the Ami collection or go for a floral blazer like Kolor or Alexander McQueen showed you. But if you are feeling like this is a bit much, just go for the floral pocket square to add the word trendy to your business outfit !
This season will be blooming with suits…But deconstructed suits, like you’ve never seen before ! Say hello to new and soft lines, less figure hugging, more casual looking. Loose pants, long jackets…now you know how to feel comfortable AND trendy at the office ! For a very laid back business attire, try some pieces from Lanvin or Prada. But if you’re feeling extra bold today, try wearing one of Versace’s or Comme Des Garçons’ suits.
Let’s go back to the future this spring by taking a little 50’s inspiration and adding it to your wardrobes ! High waisted pants, spread collars…don’t be afraid to try ! These cuts and new 2014 patterns will create the perfect look for the summer ! We will enjoy the best combination pieces from Carven, Bottega Veneta or even Canali. And if you’re feeling extra James Dean-like (with jean) try the newest Sibling collection !
Speaking of back to the future trends, we will be able to notice the return of the dandy trend in the Summer 2014 ! And pieces like evening scarves or full silky suits will be the number 1 choice in your wardrobe. Be charmed by the last Berluti or Hermès collection. And definitely try adding some pieces from Dsquared2’s or Haider Ackermann’s collections to your outfits !
Even if the sporty trend has been seen on the runaway before, nothing compares to what we will be able to notice this season ! You can try adding a little surfing or skateboarding vibe to your wardrobe, as shown in Alexander Wang’s or Givenchy’s collections. Or be tempted by impersonating the real British style by picking up a cricket inspiration, with, for example, pieces from the Moncler Gamme Bleu collection !
We all know that 90’s song by Eifel 65 that stayed stuck in our heads for hours and hours without being able to ever forget about the famous melody. Well, this season, you will be able to claim ‘I’m blue’ as many times as you want ! Wear blue everything and do not be afraid of trying total looks as seen in the last Gorgio Armani or Calvin Klein collections. And if you just wish to spice up your wardrobe, you can also go for pieces shown in the Band of Outsiders’ collection.
Bermuda shorts are going to be one of the key pieces of your summer wardrobe ! They also work so well because they can be worn on every occasion. A casual day at the beach ? A date night ? Business casual with a blazer ? There is nothing you cannot do with bermuda shorts ! Enjoy these pieces from Fendi or Marni for the casual touch, and the ones from Jil Sander and Alexander McQueen to wear at the office !
Blazers, boyfriend jeans, casual t-shirts…we often see women stealing their significant other’s wardrobe to make an interesting statement with their outfits. What if this season, it was the other way around ? With what seems to be the biggest female wardrobe steal, men are coming strong with tunics this summer. So if you are feeling bold, daring and a bit excentric, you should definitely try those pieces from Raf Simons or Rick Owens. You could even try wearing them at the office like the last Christophe Lemaire collection shows you !
Another steal from women’s wardrobes : the bag. But not just your average bag : the soft bag. We saw on the runaway all kind of soft bags, looking more or less like flexible clutches. This is for sure the accessory to carry around this summer. Like Burberry Prorsum, you can match it with your tie on casual Fridays, or with your shirt’s pocket like Valentino. But if you really want to steal that style from your girlfriend’s closet, go with the bag matching the shoes like in Andrea Pompilio’s collection.
The Varsity Jacket
This spring will also be the time to walk down memory lane and grab that varisity jacket that you kept in your closet since your baseball or football days in high school ! You can wear it casual and comfy as the last Yves Saint Laurent or Salvatore Ferragamo collections show you. You can also try a more preppy style as seen in Ermenegildo Zegna’s runaway show. You will definitely be noticeable at the office by being able to pull off the business casual style like no one else!
