Men’s Fashion Trends – Bring on the Blues for Spring and Summer

When it comes to color in fashion, there is always a yearly trend that is usually set by Pantone, but there are certain colors that that are staples in every closet. Besides the classics of black and white, blue is one of those versatile colors that never seem to go out of style. It is a universally flattering color on most everyone and is “camera-friendly” hue.

For this Spring and Summer menswear collections, the color blue has been taken to new levels with the use of more intense blues and mixing them with unexpected colors and patterns. The first example of the prevalence of the color blue in men’s street style is this “ocean blue”, one button blazer that takes center stage over a white button-down shirt and white trousers. The cool colors of the outfit are warmed up with a cognac brown leather satchel and slip-on loafers of the same color.

Here comes a new feature us crackheads here at CE came up with, Do You Up Nice (DYUR).

If this piques your interest, feel free to submit your info to the form which will available on the sidebar within the next few days.

Today’s subject: Cam

Height: Tall

Notable features: One nosy nose
Price range: Upwards of $160.00 USD

Cam is my good bud, so if I go a little hard on him all is good. That being said, Cam really needs some fucking help.

Being tall, he more options than if he were short, so that’s good. But he is freakishly muscular, which might be a problem with some more elegant (read: dainty) clothing. Finally, he considers himself to be driven yet a boy at heart but nonetheless a creature of habit. What I prescribe for Cam, then, is a CHEAP POWER SUIT and a BEACH OUTFIT, all of which will only put him back ~$160. NOTE: Not included in this getup is shoes – I’m assuming that this mook has a pair of decent, black oxfords (which I know he does from prior experience).

The bulk of his money, of course, is going to have to go towards the suit and the tie. Fortunately, Perry Ellis (yes, we can’t talk Arnold Brants) is having a sale with “Cam” written all over it:

Charcoal subtle stripe jacket: $49.99
Charcoal subtle strip pants: $19.99
Sage colored Alfani silk shirt (Macy’s): $14.99

Beach Outfit
This one’s easy and dirt cheap, but it’ll work flawlessly.

Coving trunks: $12.00
Nat biege A-shirt 3-pack (Jockey): $17


Went a little over budget there, but only by a hair. There you go; go get sexified Cam.
