Firstly, a very happy new year from Kings & Dukes. And with a new year, comes a new season and a whole new stream of new looks and trends to consider. Here, we shall highlight three of the key trends that you can begin working into your wardrobe to welcome in spring:
1) Roll out the Red Carpet
Red has been one of the front runners colour wise during the Christmas period and is planning on continuing its reign in 2015. With the coming of spring, it’s no surprise that there is going to be a transition from bold, deep, berry toned reds to more vibrant, brighter toned reds. Having seen it draped across the Dolce and Gabbana collection, red is bringing bold separates to the forefront of fashion.
For those of you who are a little shy or prefer a more subtle look, a statement red polo shirt may well be the answer to your prayers when attempting this trend. However, if you’re a little more adventurous with your day to day wardrobe, you could attempt a red two piece suit- tailored of course.
2) Say it with Flowers
Yes, florals have made a valiant return once again. Having been sported in the spring/summer collections of Givenchy, Gucci and Scotch & Soda (to name but a few), it’s no surprise that florals are going to be dominating our wardrobes this spring. Floral motifs are, however, becoming much more varied this year from very subtle to very loud- there’s something to suit every gentleman.
When dressing up florals, make sure that you frame them with a muted palette; no print clashing please, neutral trousers alongside loafers and a floral shirt would form a very simple but stylish combination.
3) Earn your Stripes
And the next comeback kid is, of course, stripes. Whether they be integrated to a formal or casual outfit, they’ll certainly be making a statement this spring. Toast, J Crew and Bally have all featured stripes in their new collections. If you’re a stranger to stripes it may be wise to start with a classic Breton top. However, if you’re a seasoned stripes parader or just keen to put a more unique spin on you’re wardrobe striped knitwear and bottoms may be the way (not together of course).
What do you think of these trends? Will you be embracing them this new year?
