Thinking about fashion is not at the top of every guy's list, but it's so easy to be in-the-know with a few pieces that fit a laid-back sense of style. Comfort is the catch of the day, while clean lines, modern prints and soft fabrics make selecting an updated look a breeze. Spring 2017 gives any man a fresh approach with these three updated essentials.
1. The Striped Polo
Polos have come a long way and they aren't just for tennis anymore. Swap your standard t-shirt for the sporty look of a classic polo shirt. Soft knit and short sleeves offer familiar comfort, while a button placket allows a quick style adjustment from work to weekend. Go for a bold look by popping the collar to enhance your smooth style, and add a fresh take with contrasting colored stripes
Get the look: Choose a polo shirt with horizontal stripes to broaden your arms and shoulders, creating a lean look. When taking in a flick with friends or meeting the family for an outdoor barbecue, pair the polo with flat-front khaki shorts. A quick front tuck lends modern appeal, while maintaining a relaxed vibe.
2. The Bomber Jacket
There's something about a bomber jacket that just embodies cool. Originally created for pilots in the 1950s, this jacket has taken on many forms but always raised the bar in men's fashion. Earn top marks this spring when the there's a slight chill in the air. It not only offers comfort with a rib knit collar and cuff, but this piece also has the durability of synthetic leather.
Get the look: Aim high with a fitted design for a clean and polished look. Layer over a printed V-neck tee and classic cut dark wash jeans to take your style from casual to confident.
3. The Anorak Jacket
Loving the great outdoors doesn't have to mean sitting in a fishing boat or hunting wild game. Take in a colorful sunset on a crisp spring evening in the rugged yet lightweight style of an anorak jacket. A spot of rain or a cool breeze can be tolerated, and even appreciated, as you ease your hood up for extra coverage. The large pockets are plentiful, ensuring you're always prepared. That is your motto, after all.
Get the look: Work in layers. A plain crew neck lays the foundation for your favorite plaid woven shirt. Select a colorful plaid to give the look a punch of springtime color, coordinating with relaxed fit jeans. Top it off with an anorak and you’re ready to go in style.
