An NYC native, Calvin’s personal style is shaped by his experiences working with iconic American prep houses like J.Crew, Club Monaco and Ralph Lauren, along with European influences from his time spent studying and traveling throughout Spain, England and Holland.
As you can see from his previous feature Tall & Lean in Style, Calvin’s style is all about slim tailoring and layers. This season he’s injecting his look with some unexpected Spring color.
Here’s three examples.
1. Seasonal Re-Purposing
“Your fall/winter favorites can work well into the spring, and even summer, provided you complement them with seasonally appropriate pieces…to show that you are cognisant of the time of year, and weather.
This burgundy mohair cardigan, for example, is typically associated with colder contexts, but with a crisp white band collar shirt and mint green chinos, the look is great for a breezy Spring afternoon.”
“That said, colored chinos don’t always have to be tied down by neutrals like navy, gray, and white. With a good understanding of color theory and color harmony you can create a picture that is unexpected but pleasing to the eye.”
