There are tons of men’s Spring trends this year. However, blindly following every seasonal trend is a recipe for poor style and an easy way to bankrupt yourself. The key to stay trendy and stylish is differentiating between the fleeting fads and the all-time classics. From work-from-home-inspired pieces to weekend basics, not forgetting men’s accessories, JCPenney guides you through the men’s fashion trends to know for Spring 2021.
Time to Switch Fabrics
Chilly days are soon to be replaced with warmer ones, so those cable-knit sweaters and heavy wool blazers are going to be overkill. Now is the time to switch to spring fabrics like cotton and linen. You can choose a button-down shirt with short sleeves for casual meets or a full-sleeve white shirt for formal events. You can pair casual shirts with light color denim and sandals and formal shirts with chinos and dress shoes.
Jump Between Fun Prints & Solids
Introduce a mix of prints and textures to your Spring wardrobe with printed shirts, crew-neck T-shirts, chino shorts, and cargo shorts. These basics will do wonders to your daytime look with their hues and style. Depending on where you’re headed, they are best paired with white sneakers or bright flip-flops.
Stripes are Fun Too
You can never go wrong with striped shirts and tees in Spring. Whether you’re a fan of micro-check shirts, plaid shirts, or polo T-shirts, they all look fabulous for the season. All these picks are tailored from lightweight fabrics to ensure you stay comfortable for long hours. Plus, they can be machine washed, so maintaining them is a breeze.
As spring weather can be unpredictable, focus on layering pieces that add adequate warmth and style. Swap your winter puffer jackets and parkas for spring-appropriate options, like a shirt jacket, slim-fit sport coat, or suit jacket. Match them with coordinating tees or shirts and denim shorts or pants, and you’re good to go.
The key to nailing shorts is making sure you get the length just right. Ideally, you should aim for shorts that end a couple of inches above the top of the kneecap. Reach for styles that can be paired with either casual or smarter pieces with ease. Stick to moisture-wicking pants for strictly formal occasions. Round the casual look with a fanny pack and the formal one with a satchel.
The Finer Details
While style is important, look for comfort and utility too. Choose for deck shorts with drawstrings as they ensure a comfortable fit and cargo shorts with multiple pockets to hold your keys, wallet, and other small accessories. Also, look for lighter colors to stay cool through the season and beyond.
