Men’s Spring/Summer 2016


by Lee Fancy

This year, Spring 2016 collections saw a return to accessories, showcasing novel baseball caps and boy-scout neckerchiefs, perfect for an everyday casual look. These trends for spring and summer can be seamless, given their versatility and the wide array of styles available.

Four accessories that you should be considering this spring.

1. Baseball Caps
Cool and laidback caps showcase '90s street-style with darker hues and accompaning white t-shirts. Switch things up with different shapes and tones to hide that bed head, or a washed out baseball cap to keep it casual and preppy.

2. Bandana Neckerchiefs
Bandana neckerchiefs were the accessory highlights with all luxury brands. Accessorize your outfits with a loose fitting bandana for a more youthful and casual look. Ensure your bandanas are long enough to enable to have a fashion worthy knot.

3. Slip On Shoes
The options are endless with the latest styles, shapes and materials that provide an easy and polished finish. Pair slippers with traditional trench coats , or incorporate a slipper with more colourful and casual wear. Well-tailored trousers are a must when trying out the slipper trend, maintaining the outfit balance is key.

4. Long Scarves
The long scarf trend in a vibrant colour and in a thinner fabric is a must for casual days. Accompany with trenches or light spring jackets for more of a fashion statement, or go for washed out patterned scarves for those laid back spring days.
