Spring Color: In the Perfectly Clear Shades of Casual & Cool

One of the biggest perks of springtime is the ease in which we can get out the door to enjoy the weather. Layering on the scarves, gloves, and hats with the heaviest jacket we can find is out the window. When we are heading out for a day of golf, hanging out in the park for a game of catch, or enjoying drinks at an outdoor café, casual ease is the name of the game. And, gents, we can do that in style. Update some tried-and-true favorites with new t-shirts and shorts in the versatile blues and greens of the season. Revive your go-to shorts and twill pants with some of the best tan and grey neutrals we’ve found. It will all seamlessly slip into your existing wardrobe, but you’ll leave the house looking current and always appropriate.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. If you missed our picks for work and after 5 earlier this week, check them out in our Fashion Finds. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. See you next week.

We like a pop of color in a casual spring jacket – we are usually wearing neutral pants and shorts, after all. And Reigning Champ’s turquoise blue color looks great with tan, stone, white and grey bottoms – and, of course, denim. Known for their sleek athletic wear and wonderful fabrics, this jacket’s details like a stowaway hood and contrast taping on the front zipper showcase the line perfectly. It’s unlined so it’s lightweight and ideal for packing up for a weekend getaway or a day at the baseball field on a grey day.

You’ll never go wrong with adding some color when it’s from Tommy Bahama. Known for their beachy aesthetic, the worn-in colors and relaxed fit is sure to please on any weekend day. A cotton sweater is a good way to add some color to your weekend look. The pebble stitch of this cotton sweater perfectly compliments the saltwater washing technique, which gives this Habanero orange the perfect fade. (This sweater comes in plenty of colors through the ‘shop it’ button, but this is our favorite.) It looks great with jeans and any neutral shorts - white, tan, navy, stone and olive. Just layer it over a simple white t-shirt for a weekend of errands or relaxation.

Just like the sweater we just featured, washing techniques open up a lot of opportunities to wear color without feeling too bold. These Peter Millar shorts are another great way to do that. The garment washing process of these classic fitting shorts creates this easy looking burnt red (called “serrano pink” through the ‘shop it’ button) that is one of the trending colors of the season. The longer 9” inseam is not only practical, but modern with the return of longer Bermuda shorts. Wear it with a white or grey t-shirt, a polo, or a washed linen shirt in white or blue. Deck shoes, sneakers or flip flops are the perfect footwear.

A polo shirt is part of every gent’s wardrobe and it presents an ideal opportunity to show some color. Vineyard Vines version is made of ultra soft pima cotton and the 2-button placket and larger chest pocket are timeless. It comes in a few springy shades, but this pigment dyed turquoise color is our favorite - great with your neutral shorts and cotton pants on the golf course or around town.

T-shirts are another place to easily add some color to our looks. J.Crew does a great job incorporating some sun-faded color into this rugby stripe t-shirt, combining style and casual ease. Of course, it’s great with jeans or any of your favorite neutral shorts, but we also like it for a day at the beach. It’s perfect with a pair of solid swim trunks – and just as good with any basic color sweatpants when you’re done with that suit. White sneakers or flip flops complete the look.

A v-neck offers a nice alternative to the usual crewneck t-shirt. Tommy Bahama’s version has a higher v and raw edge seems that bring the style level up a notch. And you can’t beat the softness of the fabric, which is a perfect pairing to the “modern classic” fit (a bit trimmer than the line’s standard fit and really good-looking on most gents - if you are concerned, size up.). The shirt is pigment dyed and designed to fade over time to a comfortable worn-in look. There are a ton of colors to choose from, and we really like them all. The dark mint green we’re featuring is a great companion to your jeans and all your neutral shorts and pants.

Gents, just because you may not want to put a lot of thought in to what you wear on your most casual days, doesn’t mean you need to look like you don’t care. Save the boxers for bedtime and the running shorts for the gym. Once you have these J.Crew cotton twill pull-on shorts, you’ll be happy to wear them all the time. Start with the blue we’re featuring, and then add some of the other colors to the mix. The drawstring waist is made for comfort and the heavier twill fabric takes them up a notch, so it will look like you made some effort. You may get more attention from your significant other once you make this update to your house lounging apparel – and we mean that in a good way.

Whether you are on the golf course, the beach or doing yard work, gents need a hat to shade their face and keep the sun off their head. Barbour’s red cotton baseball cap is not only comfortable and functional, but it adds a pop of color to your weekend jeans, shorts and t-shirt ensemble. Obey has a cool bucket hat if that is more your style.

These New Balance 574 classics in orange and silver are one of our absolute favorite color statements of the season. These sneakers have all the New Balance comfort – a TPU heal insert for extra support, a cushioned midsole, a padded collar and tongue and a foam insole. And the urban orange/silver/white color combination is great with jeans and all your neutral color pants and shorts…an instant style update.
