When it comes to Spring and Summer, it’s not only time to change out the wardrobes, but also time to take a look at what’s new in footwear. There is nothing worse than freshening up your clothes with a few new items and leaving your old, worn-out shoes to bring down the look.
This year, some of the top designers have revealed their men’s footwear collections for Spring and Summer. The first pair is from the design house of Jimmy Choo. It is an update on an old favorite: The Boat Shoe. This iconic, nautical shoe style has been enhanced with a more textured navy leather upper and a dark stitching along the white sole for interest. I could see them with your favorite jeans and a white polo shirt.
Next, is a pair of light grey lace-ups by Emporio Armani. With these shoes, texture is the key to what makes them interesting. The thick white sole looks like it would make a comfortable walking shoe, but I probably would wear them with a darker trouser to make them stand out.
Another one of my favorites in a slip on shoe style is this brown, black, and orange camouflage pair by Givenchy. Camo is a huge trend in all accessories this year and these will be the focal point of any neutral outfit.
One look in men’s Summer footwear that never seem to go out of style is the Gladiator-style sandals. This pair by Dolce & Gabbana offers plenty of foot coverage with the laced-up leather overlapping from the toes to the arch of the foot and leather heel support. This look would be a great pair of khaki cargo shorts or more dressed up with a pair of white linen pants.
Lastly, if you are more of a minimalist when it comes to Summer footwear, then the David Beckham endorsed K-Swiss flip flops with the multi-colored rubber sole and black fabric thong straps may do the trick.
The movie, “The Great Gatsby”, has been filmed a total of six times, with the latest version that is starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Toby Maguire is to be released May 10, 2013. The story is reminiscent of an era in America that reflected economic prosperity, the birth of Jazz music, and the flashy “Flapper Culture”. The 1920’s was also pegged as a time for criminal activities such as bootlegging. During that time, the parties were grand and the fashion even more grand. The iconic fashion that is showcased in “The Great Gatsby” can be seen as an influence in men’s and women’s fashion today.
The Fashion Community is always waiting to see what Couture Designers will come up with for their new collections each season. They work all year round gathering inspiration for their runway shows that debut their collections for the up and coming season. Some Couture designs are trendy, some are unique, and some are just outrageous.
When the temperature is rising, you’ll want to reach for something cool in your closet. A great tank will be just what you are looking for. The open neckline and sleeveless style will take you to the beach, out for a stroll in the park, or sightseeing on the town.
When you are out shopping for tank tops, you might want to take a look past the packaged ones in the department store. Designers have a way of using fit and style to turn something ordinary, into something much more interesting.
