Don't blink or you're sure to miss it. Summer is short here in Calgary so enjoy every moment of it. Put away the black, undo a button (or two) and hit the streets looking your best. Here are our top trends for the fellas in summer 2013.
Neon & Florescent
Fear not, you can do this. The key is to work this trend sparingly. You don't have to go head-to-toe, just a little splash will do. Think accents on shoes, bathing suits, ties, or anything else that catches your eye.
If you prefer a more understated look, you'll like the new safari pieces that are making their rounds. Khaki and olive tones continue to be important trends and we're seeing lots of pocket details, buttons and tribal-inspired patters for shirts.
Black, grey, navy, blah! Right now we're seeing lots ...
This Spring we are seeing a lot of exciting things on the horizon. We have extremes in the stores right now, so this is a time when wearing trends sparingly will serve you well. See below.
We're seeing this not only in tops but also in pants. Be careful not to wear them both at the same time, you may look like a nurse just getting off duty.
We're also seeing a lot of stripes and intense patterns like checkerboard coming our way. It's a show-stopping look, not for the wallflower at the party.
Two of the hottest prints this spring are tribals (that can mean a lot of things really) and python. Get your jungle on girls.
Come on, how hot does it ever really get in the summer in Calgary? Leather is everywhere. ...
1. The RIGHT jeans.
Calgary is a business casual kind of city, and we both work in casual work environments, so we are firm believers in wearing jeans on Friday. Just make sure that you're wearing jeans that A. fit you B. don't' have any holes in them C. don't have a lot of embellishments like crystals, pocket details, sanding on the front or are too loose. As a rule, dark, nicely fitted jeans will take you anywhere.
2. If you can work out in it, you can't wear it to work.
This means any kind of polar fleece, yoga attire or track pants (seriously, do we need to add that last one?).
3. Keep the shoes classy. Wear the same shoes you would wear with your monday-thursday work clothes. As a rule, don't wear runners. And if you wear flip flops you should probably be fired.
4. Blazer ...
