The '90s takeover continues this spring with the decade's fresh pastel hues at the top of the menswear agenda. Here's how to wear the trend well.
HOW TO WEAR: '90s PASTELS
By Kasia Hastings, May 20, 2017
Look 1: minty fresh
We called out oversized, rugby-style shirts as one of 2017's key styles to try pretty early on this year. Fast forward a few months and the look has officially landed in the form of this purple and mint polo shirt.
A pastel piqué weave, striped collar and graphic back print make for a nice, solid update on an old-school classic. Wear with slim-cut navy Dickies and a pair of crisp, adidas sneakers to keep things looking clean cut.
Look 2: just peachy
Pink always packs a punch so, this season, take things in a peachier direction to up the ante a little. For best results, go for simple cuts with cool prints in a light sugary hue, like this retro oversized sweatshirt and pair of tailored chino shorts.
Wear all pastels with matching socks and black sandals for a particularly strong look, or team with light, summery kicks for a more pared-back approach. Finish up with a cream side bag or hat to do some solid tonal work.
Look 3: to dye for
Tie-dye was everywhere in the '90s and, believe it or not, it isn’t just for festivals. For a techy take on the trend, try this multi-colored mesh T-shirt. Worn over a plain white tee, it’s a steezy new way of combining a wavy print and interesting texture.
