Spring Color: Confident, Rich Shades for an Easy Evening Style Update

When dressing for a night out, we often gravitate towards darker colors. As warmer weather and longer days approach, it’s time to break from that tradition and infuse some spring color. It’s easier than ever to do, as the colors of the season really play into the poised confidence all gents want to feel when they step out for the night. Classic shades of blues and greens look modern and fresh again. For less formal evenings, we pair them with the season’s best neutrals in denim, tans, greys and whites for stylish combinations. And for evenings when a suit or sport coat is required, popping in a bit of these colors in to your shirt and tie will instantly update your go-to pieces.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Thursday) for amazing spring color for our favorite days – the casual, easy ones. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

There are always occasions when a dark suit is a must - for an evening event or dinner at a fine restaurant - but warmer weather allows us to take some liberties. The slightly brighter shade of navy in this contemporary fitting cotton suit from J.Crew is an ideal option, and one of our favorites. The Italian made cotton is lush and comfortable on warm summer evenings – it’s a cloth that was developed by the British for their troops serving in Africa during World War II. So to say it was designed for hot, muggy weather is an understatement. Wear it with a white spread collar shirt and conservative tie for a dressier look or a bold pattern shirt for a more casual event. The pants are sold separately to ensure a perfect fit.

A casual night out is just the opportunity to play with some color. J. McLaughlin’s foulard pattern shirt is done in a cotton/linen fabric that is really comfortable – and the green shade looks so season-right with medium to dark wash jeans. You can absolutely add a blue cotton or linen blazer (or a sweater) to dress it up.

Not all tans are created equal. The heather pebble/stone of J.Crew’s summer cashmere is so rich- it brings tan and white to a whole new level. And that’s a great thing in our book. The 14-gauge Italian cashmere is lightweight and just perfect for cooler summer evenings at a restaurant. It is easy with dark wash jeans. We really like playing up the season though, by doing more of a monochromatic look, pairing it with white twill pants or jeans, and layering it over a simple white t-shirt. You will have one elegantly sophisticated summer outfit.

A summer-weight sport coat that you can wear with khaki's, linen and twill pants should be on your shopping list this season, and this classic fitting Peter Millar will allow you to check it right off. The 100% linen fabric and soft construction is just right for warm weather months. The liberty blue color looks great with any tan, white and grey bottoms. Add a pattern linen button up check shirt and you have yourself a modern looking outfit for a great night out.

This minty green just brings smiles – it’s such a cheery pop of color under a neutral sport coat for a night out. And, as Bonobos does with so many of their shirts and pants (which is one of the reasons we are such big fans), this shirt comes in both classic and contemporary fits – so every gent can bring some warm weather fun to his look. We especially like it with J.Crew’s tan Irish linen sport coat - its lightweight and unstructured with a shirt sleeve shoulder, in a contemporary fit. Add a pair of broken-in jeans or white twill pants to finish the look.

Cardigans are always an important staple in a gent’s wardrobe. So, invest in one that you’ll be able to wear for years. And of course, for that, we go to Canali. Made in Italy, the all cotton knit has a baseball style collar and 2-way zipper for a more comfortable fit and unbeatable quality. The marine blue color looks great with stone, white or tan cotton twill pants. And it looks just as good with dark wash jeans for dinner at a casual restaurant. It’s such a classic shade of medium blue, it will never go out of style. Besides going with all the basic neutral colors, it can play well with other colors too, like this linen red/orange check shirt.

Doing color in our pants can be tricky, but these bristle blue twill pants are one of our favorite ways to do it. The fit is contemporary, so they have a sleek look that works with the muted blue/green shade. It’s not too bold – just a fresh departure from basic denim or khaki’s that looks great with everything from a simple white t-shirt or polo to a patterned button up shirt. They also look great with a tan blazer. If the night is casual, wear them with white sneakers. Or, dress them up with these cool light tan Cole Haan oxfords.

There are ways to bring bolder color into your sport coat wardrobe, and this Robert Talbott is one of them. The terracotta red is bold, yet muted in the garment-dyed cotton so it gives off a relaxed feel that you can wear with confidence. Accessorize this jacket with neutrals, like a solid white or soft blue linen shirt and tan or white cotton twill pants – medium wash jeans are casually appropriate, too. Tan or burnished brown shoes will complete the look with ease.

Spring and summer is a great time to leave the black tie in the closet and wear a pop of color when you’re heading off to a formal affair, like a black tie wedding. Ted Baker’s turquoise and purple pattern packs the perfect amount of punch, so we recommend a black vest or cummerbund and white pocket square to let the colorful tie shine.
