When it comes to weather, there are four seasons. But in terms of clothes, there are essentially two seasons: spring/summer and fall/winter. As we approach the spring/summer season and get ready for warmer temperatures again, we’ll have to consider what’s in style and what you can wear that will maximize your comfort and confidence. Here are some great spring outfits from Vintage 1946.
Fashion Trends For Spring 2019
Classic Vintage Twill Shorts From Vintage 1946
Spring/summer 2019 officially kicks off an entirely new way of looking at fashion. What’s in style? Here are a few trends that are on our radar:
- Shorts with anything. GQ points out that every man needs a good pair of shorts to get ready for the new season. These days, a more casual style makes it possible to wear shorts with just about anything—including, sometimes, blazers. That doesn’t mean you can wear any pair of shorts with any old top, of course. But it does suggest that you may get more mileage out of your High Performance Shorts than usual.
- Experimenting with your shirts. GQ calls it “unexpected shirting,” but you can use this as a more general recommendation and think about trying any new type of top that you haven’t incorporated into your wardrobe yet. For example, if you haven’t incorporated any short-sleeve shirts into your regular routine yet, this is as good a time as any. You can also experiment with a wide variety of tuck styles—like half-tucked or a French tuck, for example.
These trends point to an overarching trend: it’s perfectly okay to be a little eccentric this spring and summer, especially if you intermingle casual and formal styles in unexpected ways.
Making Your New Spring Outfits Work

Even if you stay current with the trends, you might wonder how to capitalize on these trends with some great clothes you can have ready for this spring. Here are some tips for choosing the right clothes—as well as some suggestions for additions to your own wardrobe:
- Wear bright colors. Spring and summer are your best chance to wear the bright pastel or floral colors you wouldn’t otherwise wear. They’re also great times to wear white. If you already have plenty of shirts with these colors, you might consider changing things up by browsing our Stretch Twill Pants for some unique colors that will suit the season. For example, Charleston Brick is a unique yet timeless color that fits into any man’s spring outfit without a hitch.
- Don’t be afraid of patterns. Spring and summer are also the time for bold patterns. Consider our Authentic Madras Shorts in Orange for a fun alternative to the usual shorts you wear. With the bold colors and unique pattern—combined with quality construction—you can pair these shorts with a solid color in your shoes and top for just a pop of color.
