Let's Hear it for the Boys

When thinking about popular men’s fashion trends, bold prints and daring patterns are some of the first things that come to mind. These styles have seemed to rule men’s fashion runways for seasons now. This spring however, menswear is getting a dose of simplicity with minimal white looks. White is shaping up to be one of the trendiest colors for spring and with it’s growing popularity around campuses its easy to see why.

The color first made its debut on the runway of designer pair, Dolce&Gabbana. The designer label showcased crisp and tailored all white suits. They even designed white dress shoes to coordinate with the rest of their all white ensembles. Their looks were the perfect mix of classic meets modern, which is exactly what this trend is about. Executing this style is about wearing an everyday look in a new and fresh way.

You don’t have to wear an all white-on-white outfit to rock this trend, though. Take a tip from our Fashionisto. He wore a collared white shirt with dark wash skinny jeans and comfortable Nike sneakers. His look is casual, but still fashion forward. By keeping the majority of his outfit simple he brings attention to his white shirt. This creates a focal point to his outfit and makes for an overall cohesive look.

If you want to do a little spring shopping for some new white pieces, then Nordstrom is a great place to start. They offer a big variety of clothing in white, including a shirt that is similar to the one seen on our Fashionisto. They also have some very cool white pants if you want to rock something a little more daring. If you want to ease in to the white look then check out Urban Outfitters. They have a ton of shirts that are more subtle. My personal favorite is an ombre, white and black option — perfect for a hipster dresser. So guys, don’t be afraid of trends this season- embrace them! Lighten up your wardrobe and put some white in your life.

Hint: If you have a dressier occasion to attend, try wearing a white-on-white ensemble. Pair white pants with a white top. Break up the look with a pair of shoes that are a different color. You will look fashion forward and stand out in a great way.
