2. CHECKER PRINTS
Wynwood hipsters have played out plaids, but checker prints, like this one from Phillip Lim 3.1, are fresh and on-trend for spring. Sleeveless shirting is also big this season.
2. PERFORATED LOOKS
This trend crosses genders. We saw it in womenswear at Rebecca Taylor, Lacoste, and myriad others. This breathable Lanvin jacket is a great way to do outerwear on warm spring days.
One of the biggest trends for spring is a Miami standby. Monochromatic white looks can be seen in suiting and casual wear from labels like Berluti, Jil Sander, and Dolce & Gabbana. White denim is also a bubbling menswear trend.
Black-and-white styles—from broad stripes to graphic prints to contrasting separates—were seen across runways from Balmain to Alexander McQueen to BLK DNM.
2. PEAK LAPEL SHIRTS
Like those fifties-style trousers? Spring has another mid-century fashion revival: The short sleeve, peak lapel shirt made appearances at Ermenegildo Zegna, Missoni, and Bottega Veneta.
2. FIFTIES-STYLE TROUSERS
This is a blast from the past, but pleated, high-waisted trousers with a loose fit and wide leg are perfect for the Miami spring. Seen here from Michael Kors.
Loose fitting tunics are ideal for tropical climates, and labels like Gucci, Z Zegna, and Jean Paul Gaultier are making some great ones for spring.
2. SKIRTED PANTS
Reminiscent of the ‘90s trend of shirts tied around the waist, skirted looks—like this one from Maison Martin Margiela—offer a high fashion, if a bit hip-hop, lean to the grunge look.
2. BROAD STRIPES
Last season’s color-block trend remerges for spring in the shape of broad stripes across shirting, jackets, and light sweaters.
Spring runway styles aren't always embracing of tropical climates such as our own. All of those buttery leather jackets, slick trench coats, and cashmere sweaters are a no-go for guys in the Sunshine State. But we come bearing good news and sartorial inspiration: these nine trends are totally wearable for a South Florida spring.
