As the weather is getting nicer, let the summer sun energize and inspire some color into your outfits. This is the perfect season to experiment with trendy colors and styles, and what better color to embrace than coral.
I have seen a few guys sporting this color around the American University of Rome campus and particularly like how this Fashionisto incorporated it into his outfit. His ankle length slacks in coral are complemented by his boat shoes and black cross-body school bag to create the perfect preppy look. This is not an uncommon look for men this season and can be seen all over the pages of W magazine and on celebrities such as David Beckham.
Hint: No matter the occasion or wallet size there are ways every guy can bring some coral into his outfit. Starting that new internship or taking a summer class? Check out Express for Men for an inexpensive pair of coral lightweight drawstring pants. Look to J.Crew for a more casual pair of coral shorts that can easily be worn to a bbq or find a coral bathing suit at Vineyard Vines for a day at the beach. For those ambitious enough to hit a few golf balls in the heat go to J.Lindeberg for a pair of coral Troyan Micro Twill Pants. To make an outfit with these colored pants just add a polo or button-up shirt in a light color or a preppy plaid, pair with boat shoes or flip-flops, and top it all off with a cool pair of shades!
