The denim jacket is a style staple again this spring, and not only in indigo blue. Taking on the season’s signature colour green, this denim jacket from Story Mfg, looks and feels spring fresh, thanks to its selvedge organic cotton, dyed using all-natural colorant. It’s also boxy and neat and cuts clean at the waist, making it perfect over chinos or tailored shorts.

All hail the smart casual shirt for spring, and the bolder the colour, or pattern or texture, the better. Paul Smith ticks all the boxes with this palm tree print button down. Made in Italy from a silky summer fabric, the shirt’s muted tones and long sleeves make it ideal for a luxurious night out. Dress it up with a cotton blazer or don it solo for a statement over plain pants.

The cornerstone to any smart casual look is the classic cotton chino. But for this spring, exchange your white or camel chinos for on-trend stone—sitting nicely tone-wise between the other neutral colours. Opt for quality, like Canali’s stretch twill chino, which is made in Italy. Pair with a polo shirt and sandals for springtime weekends, or style them up with leather dress shoes.

This season’s tailoring trick is the double-breasted blazer. Perfect for smart spring events, Haider Ackermann’s Jagger suit coat is made from mid-weight cotton and cuts a mighty masculine shape, thanks to subtle-padded shoulder pads and jutting peak lapels. Pair with light coloured trousers for daytime, or dark tones at night.

Shorts get a leg up this season thanks to a reworking of the casual bottom by most major brands.

Basic black means they’ll go with everything you own too.

Kick your old canvas kicks to the curb this season. In a poppy red, Prada’s release of the cult-classic hi-top shoe comes crafted from luxurious canvas, and the house’s logo lapping at the ankle. With a contrast white rubber toecap and tread, just add in some light linen shorts.

Warmer weather means more outdoor events. And, that’s where a tote bag comes in handy. Acne Studio’s Baker bag mimics the generic grocery bag, but in a nylon blue (not brown paper), giving it a sporty finish. Next, select how you want wear it: grabbing it by the two carry handles or slinking it over the shoulder, made doable by an adjustable cross-body strap.
