Menswear Minute | The White Out : Spring 2015
We are fully out of the doldrums of Winter (we hope) and it's time to get our minds on what aesthetic will carry us through the warm months. As much reading and research as I've done, I can't escape the idea that white is going to play a major role in how we dress this spring and summer. Whether we dress head to toe in the refreshing color or pair it with the outrageous prints from brands like Kenzo, we have got to take a step into the white out !
White shoes. The first thing I hear you saying is, "How will I keep them clean?" There is a great company by the name of Jason Markk that will clean your sneakers/shoes like nobody's business. Back to the shoes though. High tops, low tops or slip ons...white shoes instantly add class to what you're wearing. There pristine appearance will keep your looks fresh and current. My favorites would have to be the Veja Esplar Sneaker in Extra White and the 3.1 Phillip Lim PL 31 High Top Sneaker in White. For the full offering of white shoes available from East Dane.
There is nothing more stylish than a crisp white shirt. Whether it be a t-shirt, oxford or sweatshirt. The great thing about it is when you pair it with your favorite pair of raw denim, shorts, chinos or joggers, you have a complete outfit. You don't even need accessories, it just is by itself. Brands are providing subtle accents on white shirts and even offering them in a variance of fits and designs. My current favorite is the Han Kjobenhavn Mist Shirt, the sleeve detail makes it an instant go to for me. For more choices on white shirts, East Dane has you covered.
The coolest part about white pants is the many different ways that they are being presented. Joggers, slim sweatpants, chinos and even a jumpsuit. There is something for everyone and this means you don't have to be left out because of your personal taste. I'm probably going to go with the Zanerobe Dynamo pant, their pants are comfortable and stylish with just the right amount of tailoring. Check the full scope of white pants from East Dane here.
I've gotten you off to a pretty good start for the White Out...I encourage you to browse around East Dane's expansive stock to add accessories to what is already going to be a fresh look.
