Smart camouflage shirt with straight trousers
Camouflage is definitely not dead this spring. The military print remains a must-have item for men in spring 2017 and you definitely want to add some of that funky design to your wardrobe. But instead of just snatching a basic camouflage t-shirt, go with something a bit more trendy. Pair your camouflage-collared shirt with straight trousers in navy or black. Big luxury designers like Givenchy and Valentino have introduced camouflage prints to their shirt collections and you can use it for a classy look. If you want something a bit more affordable, then consider looking for smart casual camouflage pieces from retailers like H&M and River Island.
Wide-leg trousers with white sneakers
It’s time to draw everyone’s attention to your ankles. Don’t ask why this just seems to be the trend right now. The outfit does look super cool and it’s easy to create – and you won’t look silly, but super stylish.
Pick wide-leg trousers with a cut that crops the trouser just above the ankle. Best wide-led trousers are made with a light woolly mixture, such as these from Junya Watanabe. Add a casual t-shirt or a jumper and finish off the look with white sneakers – no socks! White sneakers are great for spring as it adds light and brightness to your look, which is much needed after the dark and cold winter. However, remember that light sneakers can quickly turn into black ones if you don’t remember to give them a quick wash and polish every once in a while.
Finish off your athletic look with a lightweight parka
If you are heading out to the gym, then why not add a bit of elegance to your outfit? Lightweight parkas are super trendy and work well on top of a tracksuit or a casual jeans and shirt look. The new parkas are also made from lightweight materials that breathe, meaning you won’t be sweating while wearing this jacket in the warm spring weather.
In addition, don’t be afraid to pair sporty items with more formal clothing either. In fact, athleisure is a big thing in the fashion world right now, turning your professional outfits into more comfortable, yet stylish.
Pair pastel with denim
In terms of the colour combinations, you definitely need to pair pastel with denim. Pastel is the spring colour – it’s fresh, it’s soft and it reflects light perfectly. You might not be interested in pastel pink, but you can try plenty of stunning blues and greens.
Pastel should definitely not be the main colour in your look. However, it pairs well with denim, which is a strong fabric and such a timeless option for men. You can pair black denim jeans with a pastel t-shirt for something casual. Or add a pastel blazer to your blue denim jeans and white shirt.

If you want something a bit more daring, then shop for embroidered trousers. The look works especially well with jeans and you can tone down the look with a casual hoodie or a jumper. Nonetheless, you add a bit more flair to your look without turning into a Christmas tree!
