How to Make Smart Retro References this Spring
Colours, motifs and shapes from past decades are working their way back into contemporary men’s wear.
Nostalgia ruled the Spring 2017 runways, but past trends were reinterpreted and rooted very much in today. Bring some retro charm to your wardrobe by mixing modern elements and updated classics.
Printed vacation shirts and short sleeve knits with graphic trim are an easy way to energize a look with some good, clean fun.
’60s Flower Power prints and mod tailoring amp up an evening out. The classic Trucker jacket that came of age in this decade is a piece every guy needs.
Wider pant silhouettes in bold motifs can be worn proudly. Retro athletic layers are new basics.
The Awesome ’80s
Oversized pieces with graphic patterns are hallmarks of the decadent decade along with the classic windbreaker and distressed denim jacket that never really went out of style.
