The 7 Things You Need for Spring

March 24, 2017

You should totally ignore that massive snow storm that hit New York last week because Spring is here! It’s time to store your chunky knits, scarves, boots and down jackets with fur-hoods and get ready to upgrade your closet with all need Spring Essentials.

 

If you haven’t heard already, Canali, The Ferraris and Bentleys of Italian tailoring,  recently launched their new e-commerce site and offers a range of suitspolosaccessories and every shade of blue you can think about (well, almost, but you get where I’m going with that).

I’ve chosen Canali to share with you guys my 7 must haves this Spring!

A Suit That is Not Navy

 

Navy suits are so last season. Spice up your suit game with a suit that is blue and appropriate for the new season. ($3,095, canali.com)

Transitional Outwear Piece

You need a transitional jacket that is lightweight and not to warm. Plus a number that will have you prepared for April showers and protected like this rain and wind field jacket with a fold-away hood ($1695, canali.com)

A Spring Knit

 

A knit is probably the most versatile piece in your closet during the Spring season. On the cooler days of Spring you can layer it under your suit or shirt, while the warmer days you can  wear the knit solo. ($595, canali.com)

A Color-block Polo

Polos are back, and aren’t just for the dad that likes to golf on the weekends. Try something fun and loud like this tricolor polo ($375, canali.com)

Stonewash Denim

It’s not quite time for white denim just yet, so keep those in your closet for just a little bit longer. In the meantime opt in for a pair of stone wash denim that are super versatile, like these. You can dress them up with a button down, tucked in of course, with a sleek belt or dressing it casual with a tee or polo, it’s totally up to you! ($450, canali.com)

Wrist Candy

A little accessorizing never hurt nobody. ($195, canali.com)

White Kicks

It should be a tradition, if it isn’t already, to buy a new pair of white sneakers every spring season. Try these perforated leather kicks with brown trim.  ($550, canali.com)

I’d like to thank Canali for the collaboration.

The New York chill has made me miss short-sleeve shirt and swim season (a whole lot). So, when I made it to Miami you know I was super pumped to show some skin. Here are some of my looks that I wore from my recent trip. A few highlights included attending the Veuve Cliquot #VCCarnaval, strolling around the art deco area and living my best life over at the EAST Miami hotel.

Joseph Abboud F/W ’17 Show

Joseph Abboud is one of my favorite shows during New York Fashion Week Mens. This time around, Abboud switched things up and took us to church where he debuted his new Fall/Winter ’17 collection. The new line featured dark hues like navy, brown and grays, in addition to an array of textures like corduroy and tons of velvet.

For the show I had the chance to design my very own JA suit. I went with something more dark and appropriate for the winter weather, a dark deep and luxe navy corduroy suit. I can’t wait to wear this guy over and over again, and then break it up and wear it as separates too.

Prior to the show I had the opportunity to catch up with the man himself, Joseph Abboud, to discuss the new collection, his inspiration and how he manages to have the best looking cast each season. (Check out the video HERE).
