With spring on the horizon, our thoughts are turning to warm-weather dressing. Along with the prospect of sunny skies and alfresco beers, the change in seasons is also bringing a new menswear mood. Pay attention, these are the trends that will inform your summer wardrobe.
1. Geek chic
Give the simple jeans and top combination a makeover this year by tucking your t-shirts into high-waisted trousers, ala the catwalks of Prada and Kenzo.

2. Dad dressing
This season dadcore has graduated to high-fashion status. Think 1980s office wear – all slouchy silhouettes, head-to-toe-muted colours and pleated, ankle-grazing trousers.

3. Feel the heat
Tropical prints are big news. From vibrant florals at Louis Vuitton and Paul Smith to subtle palm patterns at Dries Van Noten, Hawaiian vibes are now the norm for everyday dressing.

4. Get sporty
Sportswear has become a major player in recent years and 2018 is no different. From Lanvin to Hermès and Valentino, traditional sports shapes have been given a luxe twist on the catwalk with glossy fabrics and jewel colours.

5. Go practical
Utilitarian continues to dominate this season. Not feeling up to a daring boiler suit like the folks at Prada? Opt for shirts in practical – and stylish – khaki colours as a nod to the trend.
