Metro Man & Metro Home

The sun is out, flowers are blooming and the temperatures are rising. Spring is the time of new beginnings and change, but it shouldn’t just mean the weather. Our Spring/Summer wardrobe, which was mostly tucked away until now, could probably use some fresh air along with some sprucing up and new additions. That’s why we’ve picked out some fun, yet classic looks to revamp your wardrobe and get you on trend with the season.

1. Blast From The Past: Double-Breasted Blazers

You may actually own this item already, but haven’t worn it recently for fear of being outdated. While the single-breasted European cut is still the front-runner in fashion, the double-breasted alternative has made quite the comeback this season, complete with a more modern fit and flair.

2. Training Day: Bright & Bold Trainers

Even if you’re not a track star, a pair of bright neon trainers will surely give life to a rather understated ensemble. Ranging with a variety of colors, textures and brand options, a bold trainer paired with tailored trousers and other more refined looks will add a surprisingly nice kick.

3. Man In the Mirror: Reflective Sunglasses

Retro seems the way to go this season. Reminiscent of the 80’s, mirrored shades are all the rage in fashionable eyewear at the moment. Luckily there are extensive options in varying shapes, sizes, colors and styles to choose from, making this look suitable for pretty much anyone.

4. Flower Power: Floral Prints

There’s nothing groundbreaking about floral print in the spring, however it is a wardrobe staple that never truly goes out of style. If incorporating the assorted options available seems intimidating, just remember less is more. If you do opt for a more bold print, keep that the focal point of the outfit.
There are so many more fashion trends out there, but these should get you pointed in the right direction. Whatever you decide on, just remember to have fun!
