Taupes, Creams, Beiges: Cool And Calm Summer Men’s Fashion

Comments Off on Taupes, Creams, Beiges: Cool And Calm Summer Men’s Fashion 28 September 2011

It’s not just brights that are burning up this season’s catwalk, for the understated neutral tones are also stirring up a summer storm in men’s designer fashion.

To compliment the cacophony of colour, most fashion houses have also released collections in less brash tones that fit well with rising trends such as the passion for the nautical. The blue and white of Breton is flaunted on the summer t and boat shoes are the latest in men’s fashionable footwear available in an array of elegant colours. Won Hundred adopt olive green for their Clay collection, while the Lark Coin Shorts of design house Libertine-Libertine and the Goa short from Acne sport navy, Sixpack France paint their shorts in Cinto style in basic beige and sand is stylish in tailored short designs from Reiss, Dr Denim and Jil Sander. For a knee-length short staple look to the cargo short, in brown from the Mick line by Tommy Hilfiger, simple stone from Henley and cookie-coloured delights from Luke 1977. For darker hues Goodsouls uses earthy greens, olives from Scandinavian label Norse Projects, back to black by Boss Green and dark blues from Henri Lloyd’s Arbroath and Farah Vintage.

Joining the regiment of men’s designer fashion, are the military styles that are taking fashion by storm including the hottest summer colour: khaki. Universal Works salute the army-inspired trend with their Hyde Jacket, Scout Jacket, numerous t-shirts with stripes and their bakers pant. Penfield, workwear-inspired American label, brings khaki and olive to their lines with their Dover Jacket, Idlewood Bag and Edgertown trousers. For the finishing touch look to Norse Projects’ Hektor cap or an army hat in green from Carhartt.

Blue is the new black with navy staples that will fill your wardrobe with style, Dockers bring skinny-fit chinos with diagonal weaving, Farhi by Nicole Farhi’s loose linen trousers and corduroy chino trousers from Our Legacy. To match B Store’s Liberty blazer is navy with flower-pattern inner, Polo by Ralph Lauren’s parka, lightweight in cotton or their cotton Baracuta jacket or YMC’s take on navy in pilot jackets, waxed coats or hooded items. Go even higher to match the look and you’ll find All Saints beanie hats, flat caps in cotton by Fred Perry and baker boy hats from Brixton hats all in navy.

Neutrals needn’t be boring, hitting the scene with as much flair as their crass counterparts. The chino in particular is a big favourite as the embodiment of the best of beige, but the straw trilby is also taking the desert-like neutrals and applying them to men’s fashion, this popular item has reached the boutiques of Criminal Criminal and Soul Cal Deluxe as well as high street labels River Island, Ben Sherman, Ted Baker and Paul Smith. A panache for pattern sees the re-emergence of the Burberry check and the flower pattern of Hartord, while Dockers military shirt is breathable in Hopsack linen-cotton. Add a little weight to the hue and you’ll find yourself in the equally pleasing territory of tans and browns to make sure you have the footwear to match, camel-coloured deck shoes from Pointer, Clae’s Khan ankle boot, designed lightweight for summer and Red or Dead’s Morecambe buckle sandal to allow you and your feet to breathe easy in comfort and style.

Be it taupe, mushroom, beige or oatmeal, there’s a neutral hue for those who shy away from the bright and the bold men’s fashion styles. Neutral can also extend to the toes with Pointer footwear and their casual hues. Step out in style!
