The birds are singing, the mornings are bright and everyone is suddenly a little more cheerful. That can only mean one thing — spring is in the air! If you fancy yourself a bit of a fashionista, you’ve probably already swapped your long coats for cute boleros and fleecy leggings for tights. But what about the man in your life? If he’s still wearing some of the same spring gear he had on when you met in 1999, it’s definitely time to refresh his look. Not sure where to start? Don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of four ways to transform your guy for spring.
- Begin with Basics
Before you get too carried away totally transforming your husband’s wardrobe, start with the basics, like a good quality undershirt. When the weather starts heating up, the danger of your man sweating on the gorgeous new shirt you bought him is high. He can avoid unsightly stains and even create the illusion of a more streamlined figure by donning an undershirt. Need help? Here’s a comprehensive compilation of the best undershirts for men.
- Add a Pop of Color
If your guy is allergic to anything but monochrome, it might be time to point out that men’s style magazine GQ has given a firm thumbs up to color for Spring 2018. Millennial pink is still seriously trending. But if that color is one step too far for your fashion-fearing honey, start small with a pastel tie or a dusky blue shirt. Once he sees that he can pull off the look, he’ll be happy to experiment with bolder designs.
- Get Him a Haircut
It doesn’t matter how on trend your guy’s outfit is if he doesn’t have the hair to match. Spring is the perfect time to debut a new style. For a bold but easy to pull off look, try asking your S/O to sport a sharp, blunt fringe, as popularised by British heartthrob Zayn Malik last year. For a fresh, young look, go one step further and break out the bleach. The choppy, blond style will lend your man an appeal that’s as chic as it is faux-grungy.
- Don’t Forget the Feet
It’s time to coax your husband away from his well-loved pair of worn sneakers or heavy-duty boots and into something a little more seasonal. Paris Fashion Week 2018 proved that strappy sandals need not be a women-only affair, but if you’re looking for something a bit more professional, sleek ankle boots in classic black, rich chocolate or chili oil brown are another runway approved trend. Some even sport the tiniest heel, which is great for elongating the leg and creating a slimmer figure.
Spring is a time for change and rebirth. It’s also the time you probably overhaul your wardrobe. So, why should you let the man in your life miss out on all the fun? By following these four simple steps, you can help him swing stylishly into spring.
