Elevate Your Style: Men's Spring Tailoring

Embrace the Season with Stylish Menswear

With the clocks going back this weekend and spring in full bloom now's the perfect time to give your look a spring clean and refresh your wardrobe. Say goodbye to heavy layers and hello to light, airy fabrics and bold colours. Whether you have a special occasion or are just looking to update your look ahead of the new season mastering the art of spring tailoring is key to nailing a smart, stylish look.

Tailoring Tips for the Modern Gentleman

When it comes to spring tailoring the key is to reduce the layers and opt for lighter tailoring choices. Two piece suits are ideal for the warmer months ahead, opt for styles in a slim cut with added elastane that will flatter your frame and allow for ease of movement. For a fresh look, try incorporating lighter shades such as tans, creams, and light blues into your wardrobe. These colours will complement the current season and inject some much-needed brightness into your outfit. 

If you’re looking for a more smart casual spring look, smart shirts and chinos are two staples that you don't want to miss. These pieces are not only comfortable but incredibly versatile and easy to style. Whether you're dressing up for a casual day out or dressing down for a weekend brunch, these pieces will effortlessly elevate your look. When it comes to selecting a colour black, navy or tan are the most versatile colours that will effortlessly match with a variety of shirt and blazer styles. 


Building the Perfect Spring Wardrobe

If you’re looking to create more of a spring capsule wardrobe focus on versatile pieces that can easily mix and match to create a variety of stylish looks. Invest in a well-fitted blazer in a neutral tone like cream or navy. Selecting the right blazer will make curating the rest of your looks more effortless. A good quality cotton mix shirt is also a key piece that’s worth investing in. You want your dress shirt to have some percentage of cotton as this will ensure it washes well and stays crisp for longer. Equally, a statement shirt in pink or blue is just as important, depending on the occasion a pastel shirt is a great way to elevate an ordinary everyday look. 

Finishing the collection with quality genuine leather shoes is the final step to curating the perfect collection. A pair of oxford or brogue shoes in versatile shades like navy or tan will be the perfect accompaniment to your spring looks. 


Accessorise With Flair

Accessories are the finishing touch that can elevate your spring looks from ordinary to extraordinary. A statement tie in a classic print like polka dot or stripe can add a dash of personality and fun to your everyday looks. When choosing a pocket square the key is to remember it should never exactly match your tie, instead it should subtly complement your tie. Look for a pocket square that matches in colour to the tie. 

Finally a stylish watch or a sleek pair of sunglasses can add a touch of sophistication to even the most casual ensemble.
