Bow ties are no longer strictly the territory of southerners and hipsters. Updated versions in interesting fabrics like chambray are popping up from all kinds of designers. Great way to spruce up that summer wedding ensemble.
3. Washed Out Denim
Warmer weather calls for lighter denim, both in weight and color. A nice washed-out pair of jeans have that lived-in look and act like a nice light canvas for all your other bright spring items to stand out against.
4. The Floral Shirt
Not—repeat, not—a call for Hawaiian shirts. A nice subtle floral looks understated from afar but interesting up close. You can pair it with a suit and tie or do something more casual.
5. The Knit Button-Up
The perfect marriage of comfort and style, a knit button-up feels relaxed but looks put-together, and can be layered over for cooler evenings or worn alone with the sleeves rolled up when it's warmer out.
The world of sunglasses is enjoying an '80s moment with reflective lenses becoming a popular way to add a healthy dose of personality up top. Plus they just make you look like a fun guy.
7. Marled Sweats
Marled means woven with yarns of varying thickness and color, creating an intensely heathered look. That combined with a tailored fit has resulted in a new breed of sweats that can be worn both to the gym and out on the town (provided you know what you're doing).
8. Technicolor Trainers
A classic trainer (like these from New Balance) in a bright color is more versatile now than it's ever been. Stylish cats are even pairing them with suits. The key: wear with confidence.
