I just returned from the fashion and trade shows held in NYC.
These shows previewed primarily fashion trends for men’s clothing for the Fall, 2012 season. Fall’s recommendations, however, should be useful as you consider your Spring, 2012 wardrobe updates.
The following translates the ideas of the designers in the men’s fashion industry into usable guidance for today’s professionals this coming Spring season.
NAVY IS BACK!
Above, Ewan shows us how to pair varying shades of blue into a wonderful, exciting Spring look! This is perfect for those days in the office when you don’t have critical client meetings…or when you have critical client meetings with very creative clients! You have to know your audience and dress accordingly!
For critical client meeting days, simply go to your favorite white shirt and dark ground tie!
USE YOUR DRESS COMPONENTS ON THE WEEKEND!
WATCHES CONTINUE TO MAKE A COMEBACK!
Again, my good friends at Hannoush, Frank Adams, Singer Jewelers, et.al. will love to see that watches continue to make a comeback in fashion circles!
In summary, the biggest single fashion swing I noticed is the resurgence of navy as the color of choice for suits and accessories. I’ll discuss suit styles, pant styles, and more in subsequent posts.
