Spring / Summer FaShion


This season men ’ s fashion is easy on the eye . Luxury Life International ’ s James W Phillips picks out your wardrobe essentials …
WITH SUMMER FAST APPROACHING and the season hotting up already , our minds turn to fashion and what we will wear this year . With so many options before our eyes on Instagram and in magazines , the choices can be overwhelming – and where to start can be a little daunting . But fear not , help is at hand .
The best advice I can give you is keep it simple . Think of the colour wheel – and for those of you who never took GCSE art , then check it out on Google – and keep those colours subtle and matching !
Let ’ s break it down for those main occasions , whether it ’ s a wedding , a trip to the shops or to your favourite restaurant .
The trend I am seeing for the summer wedding in the tailors of London are three-piece linen suits . Mix and match – there ’ s no need for matching trousers and waistcoats – and mix it up with pastel tones , houndstooth fabrics and a standout pocket square and tie .
Take inspiration from our Italian friends and the new season trends seen at Pitti Uomo this year . But choose
carefully – gone are those ’ 90s pinks and bright colours . Embrace the double monk strap shoe in brown . Check out my favourite tailors , Suitsupply . com .
For that casual , gritty look , the biker style is still number one . The black biker jacket will always be a staple piece in my wardrobe but don ’ t just stick with black . Consider washed out , worn-look browns , a white T , skinny faded jeans and a pair of biker boots . I always go for Red Wing .
The Yeezy phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down , with new styles being released , but prepare to dig deep as these are not cheap ! Fear not , so many other styles of sneakers continue to be in vogue on Instagram – from Adidas to Nike there ’ s a lot to choose from – but keep it tasteful and contemporary and keep those sneakers clean !
Skinny jeans , a simple T or a long sleeve full button polo or denim shirt , a white crisp fitted shirt with a blue V-neck jumper over your shoulders is perfectly acceptable for a trip to the restaurant and to the shops , but don ’ t stray too far down the road of ripped jeans for that special evening out . Keep it smart with a pair of loafers and definitely keep those socks at home !
