Keep calm and wear prints. If you are looking for a hot new trend to experiment with, look no further! One of the hottest trends in men’s fashion this spring is mixing patterns. When done correctly, the mixed pattern look is one of my favorite men’s fashion trends because it can be very eccentric. Adding a touch of patterns to your look may be just what you need to take an outfit above and beyond mediocre without looking like you tried too hard.
I spotted this Fashionisto near the hub on campus in his easy breezy laid-back outfit. He is wearing a blue and white, three-quarter sleeve, gingham printed shirt. Gingham print is very similar to plaid but they differ in that gingham checks are typically smaller than plaid. To some this may make no difference, but gingham print is considered very versatile and great for mixing in the men’s fashion world solely because of the size of the checks. This Fashionisto’s outfit is classic casual but the printed shirt adds a hint of spice and draws the eyes to his outfit. He keeps the rest of his outfit super simple and pairs his gingham shirt with the perfect shade of light washed denim.
Hint: This Fashionisto did a great job putting this outfit together because it looks great as is. But if you are looking to take this look from casual to a little dressier, try adding a solid colored blazer on top for an ultra sleek look.
