As seasons change, so do the trends. Be it for men’s corporate wear, outerwear or formal wear, trends widely vary from one category to another. Especially for men who go to their offices each day in the same black suit, it is time to spice up their corporate clothing from boring to glorying.
Coming down to the hottest men’s fashion trends from the runway of the Milan Fashion Week and Paris Fashion week Spring/Summer 2012, the preppy corporate clothing runways were set on fire by designing houses like Burberry’s, Dior Homme, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, John Gilliano and many more which redefined summer for men’s corporate wear through the following trends:
· Perfect In Pastels:
With the summer heat, pastels are by far the biggest trend in corporate clothing that is set to spread throughout this season. Be it a pastel coloured shirt, trouser or a blazer; it can be worn as corporate wear without a doubt. Much softer tones of pastels are more preferable than the darker tones for men’s corporate wear to look more versatile and professional at the same time.
· Never Say Never To White:
Be it off white, bone, dirty white or absolutely any shade of it, white is back on the runways with complete white looks. For the perfect look of your corporate wear, white blazer, white pants and a printed collared shirt can be teamed up together to give just the look you need to dress to impress.
· Go Bold Or Go Home:
If you like to add crisp to your corporate wear, then why not go crazy with bright orange shirts under a sophisticated suit? Not just that, the summer of 2012 is going bolder than ever with tribal printed shirts straight from the Milan Fashion Week runway while abstract prints, bright checks, boxy prints and wild florals add up to this big trend. Colours such as deep blue, red, green and even pink can be considered as a good palette for corporate clothing.
.Say Hi To Khaki:
Don’t have a khaki suit? Well it is never too late to buy one! With men’s corporate wear trends steaming up with colours, khaki suits become one of the highlights by maintaining your corporate clothing's look with a cut throat style.
· Double Breasted Blazer:
Even though the usual blazer is a classic for corporate clothing, there is always room to add a few more buttons to your jacket to make it look more hip. Perfect for all seasons and work types, a double breasted blazer is just what a man needs to pull off the summer trend look.
· Not So Skinny:
Even high end fashion brands from Milan Fashion Week this year say no to skinny looks for corporate clothing. As suggested by the runway fittings, loose trousers and blazers are coming into the forefront while the world of men's wear and corporate clothing says goodbye to fit-to-skin clothing. It is perfect for donning that stylish corporate wear look that's also suitable for the hot weather.
· Casual vs. Formal:
For corporate clothing, striped polo shirts and printed tees under a versatile suit add up to the chic look of a man with the trend of mixing your casual and corporate wear. Pull off the mixed up look may be difficult but you can always play safe by a simple coloured polo shirt.
