Latest Menswear Trends: Spring/Summer 19
As much as I love Winter clothing it is time to turn our attention to lighter layers.
But if the idea of buying new clothes leaves you cold, don't worry. A lot of the current trends show no signs of leaving us in the coming months.
Given that this is the UK and Summer pretty much consists of 4 days in June, don't put away your coats just yet. When worn over lighter layers, or even just a t-shirt, that duster coat can be worn all year round.
With the April showers starting early this year, every Spring wardrobe needs and Waterproof. Team with tailored trousers or shorts for a look which is more trend-spotter than train-spotter.
An all-year favourite. Bomber jackets have been in and out of style since the 50's. Opt for a wool or printed version for a contemporary edit.
The undisputed accessory of the next Season. Fedora, Cap, Wide-Brim or Bucket. They come in all shapes and sizes, just make sure you have one.
These have been getting increasingly short over the last couple of years but luckily for anyone with nobbly knees there are still some designers creating a more City-friendly tailored short.
In the words of Madness, Baggy Trousers, Baggy Trousers, Baggy Trousers. But make it fashion. The modern parachute trousers have a high-fitted waist to make the extra volume seem deliberate and not like you've stolen the trousers of a much larger man.
Next season's silhouette is oversized in every direction, including suit jackets. Upgrade to a Double-Breasted jacket for serious sartorial chops.
