A good-quality chino pant
A great pair of chino pants is like a young woman’s equivalent to a pretty black dress – it looks flattering and most importantly, it’s comfortable! If you’re looking to find a street look with a hipster edge, a light or dark brown chino ticks all the right boxes. Do you have a cool graphic t-shirt? Wear it! Complete this look with a pair of canvas boat shoes and quirky patterned or personalized socks, and you’re ready for a great afternoon with friends. For a chino with a bit more versatility, you can try a black or navy coloured pant. Pair this with a white button-up shirt and a brown leather belt and you’re sure to make the girls swoon when you walk into the party!
A classic and modern denim jacket
Ah, it’s like we’ve been transported back to the 90s, except now we know not to wear denim over denim – well some of us. The classic denim jacket exudes masculinity with a hint of class, making it a stylish solution to your casualwear dilemma. Do you want to elevate your denim jacket look? Splendid. Perusing through your local Universal Store, you’ll find a whole range of contemporary denim jackets to suit different occasions. A popular choice this season is the black denim jacket with leather sleeves, redefining the ultimate rock star look; Bruno Mars eat your heart out!
Retro Shades and a Fedora Hat
If you want to score some major suave points, then a pair of vintage shades are a must-have for your spring and summer wardrobe. Nerdy glasses, take the backseat with Rebecca Black! These round and quirky vintage shades are the best accessory to emphasise a man’s facial features. Rock these shades with a pair of denim shorts and a printed shirt, the perfect three-piece ensemble for a day at the beach or an early afternoon gathering. Sticking with the vintage theme, the fashionable man can’t go wrong with a fedora hat. Typically matched with a more tailored outfit, a fedora hat contrasts well with your casualwear attire and adds a hint of sophistication.
