From fresh prints and shades of sage to exaggerated lines and the return of the bucket hat, the runways of Spring Fashion Week saw the ultimate post-modern revival of men’s couture.
Get the look: From the high-end to the high street, Ashlee Starratt helps you to get the look.
Re-live those formative years of ‘Teen Spirit’ and embrace the 90s as grunge chic and rave revival come full circle once again. Think oversized, bold apparel, and big-collared shirts. This coral-stripe short-sleeve shirt from River Island will have you ‘Big Lebowski’-ing all the way to the bowling alley. Snag it for RO12.7.
Spring/Summer’s go-to guy accessory is less your father’s fly-fishing kit, and more ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’. It will, however, keep you looking fly – as this season’s bucket hats will have you brimming with style (all puns intended). Don this black jewel print version from Versace for RO108.
There were some serious kicks stomping out the men’s footwear edit for Spring/Summer. Topping them all was the iconic cowboy boot. Bold, brash, and brave, it’s a look that takes confidence to pull off. Not ready to go full frontier? These dark tan leather ankle boots from Clark’s are the perfect starter kit. Own them for RO48.5.
Everything old was new again across the season’s top fashion houses as the retro watch revival brought a subtle touch of hipster to the wrists of this season’s menswear models. Strap on this steampunk-inspired gold-leaf sun-and-moon version from Mr. Jones for RO133.4 and never be late on style.
Of all the earth tones to strut down the menswear runways this season, nothing caught our eye more than the gorgeously versatile sage green. The perfect shade; dress it up or down – especially on a pair of trousers, like these five-pocket straight-leg stretch-twill ones from Faherty. Own them for RO61.41.
Unexpected shirting had us doing a double-take at the Alexander McQueen and Lanvin shows – but untucked doesn’t have to mean unkempt. Keep your tails and cuffs flapping in this asymmetric heap-front shirt from Dresslily for just RO19.1.
More compact than a carry-all and sportier than a ‘man-purse’, cross-body bags were taking over the catwalks as one of Spring/Summer’s hottest trends in menswear accessories. And c’mon guys – do you really want to keeping stuffing your keys, phone, and oversized wallet in your pants pocket? Sling on this monogram cross-body bag from River Island for RO7.6 and be on your way!
