Spring Trend Report

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

 

GQ.com recently uploaded their Spring Trend report for 2012–and they hit the mark. GQ Writer Jim Moore features a series of over 100 looks taken straight from the runway and we’ve chosen just a few to highlight here.

The blue suit is perfect for spring and well into summer. Just because the weather brightens and the air warms up, doesn’t mean you’re exempt from wearing a suit to the office, partner meetings, and business dinners. Instead of heavy woolen and dark fabric, opt for something lighter like linen, preferably colored in light blue.

The All-American Look

There’s something ultra-classic about a pair of rugged jeans coupled with a jean jacket. Incorporate the new trends with this look, such as rolling up with pant leg slightly and pairing it with a brightly colored shoe.

Striped Knit Wear

Stripes always make a comeback every few years, but this season we’re seeing them on knitwear, which is pretty cool for spring. They are popping up on ties and accessories, like this Nautica look for spring.

Ah, enough about this shoe already, right? No! The chic comeback of the wingtip cannot be reckoned with. Get a pair, any color, this spring.
