Smart Casual is the Spring Fashion Trend That’s Never Going Out of Style

In Partnership with BOSS

Versatility is king in Spring, and you can truly pick your own adventure when it comes to style. One of our favourite seasons for dressing, there’s more than one way to go about styling yourself and it all depends on the occasion. Sometimes the simple polo shirt and chino combination will suffice, however, dressing up for parties, Sunday lunches, and special occasions is nothing out of the ordinary in the warmer months either. It’s time to step out of winter feeling refreshed with a new look and wardrobe. There’s plenty to look forward to in the months ahead, and we wouldn’t want you to look anything but your best. A spot of Springspiration is on the cards and Hugo Boss is coming through with the goods.

Spring Style Inspiration

In going about cleaning out our winter wardrobe and refreshing it with a new selection for the months ahead, we’ve put together three style ideas to get your journey started with some helpful tips and tricks full of Springspiration thanks to Aussie actor Lincoln Younes. Don’t forget, lightweight tailoring in suits and shirts is essential for the wonderful warmer days ahead, so keep that in mind when checking out all the looks down below.

1. Stick to Elevated Classics

Spring is the time for lightweight fabrics of the highest quality. It’s also the time to step away from the traditional styles for a second and consider something elevated with a little more texture. The terry polo shirt is a great alternative to the cotton versions we’re all used to seeing this time of year. Standing out from the crowd isn’t always a good thing, but with the terry polo shirt from Hugo Boss, you’ll be promised nothing but the gaze of the fashion envious thanks to the soft 100% cotton construction, open collar design, and cuffless sleeves.

Pairing the terry polo shirt with a pair of chinos is always a solid casual go-to for this time of year and we can’t recommend it enough. White is perfect for when the sun is out and the weather is balmy, however, don’t be afraid to opt for shades of khaki and tan either. A contrasting pair of white sneakers, or even matching a pair to your shirt of choice is never a bad idea either. No-show socks should always be on the cards of course.

2. Time to Dress it Up

The unstructured blazer is a Spring staple, and for good reason. This piece should be a part of every stylish man’s wardrobe and favours those occasions when dressing up in a suit is just a little too much but you need that extra edge. There’s been a notable shift away from stiffly structured ensembles towards a more comfortable and relaxed fit. And while it certainly depends on what you layer the unstructured blazer with, Spring is a time when lighter colours mix well with bolder patterns and pastels such as pink and blue.

When the occasion calls for something even more relaxed – say a boat party – let us be the first to recommend pairing your new Spring staple with a pair of white shorts and white sneakers. You’ll want to make sure both these items stay clean as a whistle but don’t be afraid to really set the mood if the weather is fine and the vibes are cool. It’s time to do away with those heavy weighted fabrics and structured fits, Spring is here and your wardrobe definitely needs a refresh.

3. Go To Town

Spring is the best time of year to hit the town in a coloured suit. Whether you opt for the matching ensemble or simply choose to match the blazer with a pair of chinos or denim jeans, you’ll be sure to ooze all the Spring smart-casual appeal you could look for. While this certainly sits at the ‘smart’ end of the spectrum there’s no problem wearing a fun coloured suit to a long Sunday lunch, baby shower, or even a more relaxed wedding – and lord knows there’ll be plenty of those to attend this Spring.

After a quality dose of Springspiration, you’re ready to refresh that winter wardrobe. BOSS is more than happy to oblige with a fresh menswear collection that features lightweight tailoring in suits and shirts, embodied in colour, stripes and prints. The selection is wide and each piece is simply essential for the wonderful warmer days ahead. To view the full range and pick up any number of pieces for yourself, be sure to follow the link below.
