When designers start to conceptualize their new and upcoming collections, color palettes are considered first. Whether it’s going to be jewel tones, neutrals or bright florescents, the qualities the colors take on bring a lot to the entire look and a create a cohesive collection. Summer is all about keeping fashion light and fun; therefore, the biggest trend that seems to grace runways for every spring/summer season is bright colors. A brilliant hue can do so much for a person. For men it can definitely bring a new dimension to their wardrobe, not to mention show off that bronze glow. The thought of wearing the same old black shirt and jeans can be so repetitive from season to season. Change it up because when the sun is shining, your outfit should be shining too.
This summer season I challenge you to walk down the street and observe the beautiful bright pigments present in both men and women’s fashion. You’ll notice that those wearing these colors stand out! This is exactly what happened when I spotted this handsome Fashionisto delightedly sporting a light orange button-down. Not quite neon but brighter than a pastel, these fresh new shades of the rainbow are exciting and perfect for this heat wave. I also noticed how he rolled up the sleeves on his shirt to show his casual cool vibe on his way to class. He definitely kept the look simple but sometimes basic can go a long way. His khaki Bahama-style Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes added the finishing touch to that beachy summer vibe he was radiating.
Hint: While solid shirts are always classic and wearable, take the trend to a whole new level and add a fun print! Something with a stripe or checkered pattern laced with bright colors will create a bold statement that’s sure to get noticed.
