Before we start breaking down the key pieces you need to develop your own business-casual outfits, take a look at some current look book inspiration that embodies the type of aesthetic we are looking to achieve.

Men's Business Casual Lookbook For Spring/Summer

Tailored Pieces

As always, these are the key to any guy’s success at work. ‘Business-casual’ doesn’t really call for a full on suit, so why not invest in a few separates? I’m talking about a navy blazer, some mid grey trousers and perhaps something in a pattern such as Prince of Wales check or a chalk stripe to show that summer’s a time for play, not just work.

Alternatively, ignore the advice above and invest in a cotton/linen suit in brown, beige or tanand wear the hell out of it – together or as separates.

Look One: Beating The Cold Snap

Layer a denim jacket under a lightweight hooded parka and over a roll neck sweater to remove the chill from an unseasonal cold spell. The varying tiers of texture will add both depth and visual interest to your layering without necessitating the use of bold colours or prints.

Anchor the top half with simple, heavier weight trousers, neutral boot socks and workwear-inspired leather boots for an altogether masculine aesthetic:

Men’s Fashion Trend: Stripes

Posted: March 29, 2013 in Fashion

By nature, spring/summer represents the time of the year where colour and pattern is widely accepted as part of your everyday wardrobe and designers move away from the muted tones of grey, black and navy traditionally associated with the colder months.

This season, although bright colours are again proving to be a popular choice, fashion designers and high street retailers alike have made pattern much more of a focal point within their collections. And one of the biggest pattern trends proving to be extremely popular for SS13 is the return of stripes.

Although the Breton stripe and nautical inspired pieces continue to remain a popular choice amongst fashion-conscious men, this season stripes are being adopted in more varied ways – from Breton to pinstripe to Regatta to humbug.

Some designers have even adopted the use of bright, often clashing colours and incorporated this colour-blocking effect into their striped patterns – creating a striking visual impact.


Below you will see how the high street and mid-priced designers have chosen to incorporate and style stripes in their latest collections, including the likes of H&M, AllSaints and LBM 1911:

Current Pieces

When browsing the high street collections currently available, stripes are prevalent at all major retailers. Brands such as Topman, River Island and ASOS are already selling a plethora of striped garments – from classic Breton tees to more adventurous bright, bold coloured striped pieces.

At the more expensive end of the market, designer versions are available from the likes of Mr. Porter and Oki Ni. Paul Smith’s typical multi-coloured logo and signature stripe applies perfectly to this trend and features on messenger bags and scarves, proving that the pattern works well on accessories too.

Furthermore, Mr. Porter is currently stocking a double-breasted, micro-stripe blazer by Junya Watanabe which comes in a perfectly apt white and blue tone for spring/summer. There is also a selection of silk ties by Etro that feature an interesting striped pattern in various bold colours:
