Joseph and the Technicolor T-shirt and Board Shorts

With the weather starting to warm up, it can only mean 1 of 2 things- global warming or spring. This week’s blog is about some of the major trends that will be hitting the streets/beach this summer and coming to a store near youOne of the biggest trends that has been continuing and growing even stronger over the last year is PLAID. It is a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. For spring though, you will be able to pull off lighter/brighter colors like this yellow one found at Opening Ceremony. It might be a bit much for most, but hey at least you will be noticed.

Another big trend is the tailored short. For years, we have been buying the same baggy cargo short from Abercrombie in 4 different colors. Now companies like Cheap Monday and John Varvatos have made the non-bulky tailored short in every color imaginable. Think of it, as if you took the pants of a suit and cut them at the knee, and sewed them. These shorts can be paired with anything from a t-shirt to a suit jacket (depending on the occasion) and are a great staple for every guy to have.

Finally, Spring/Summer is the time to be colorful (and I’m not talking about manly guys in pink), neon and bright colors are on almost everything this spring including screen t-shirts and board shorts. They can be worn together or separate but don’t be too matchy, or people will think you tried tooo hard.

Side Note: Just because board shorts have shorts at the end of it’s name, doesn’t mean you can wear them as everyday shorts, unless you plan on running in a sprinkler at lunch.
