With mornings getting brighter and daffodils popping up everywhere, it’s time to refresh your wardrobe with the 10 items menswear editor Ian Wright will be wearing this spring
Nothing signals the start of spring like linen – the soft and airy fabric is the perfect companion to chinos. I’ll be wearing this sharply cut shirt under a navy blazer.
I’m taking my spring style cues from movie stars this season. A rounded frame flatters most face shapes, while the refined arms and honey tone add a hint of old-school charm.
If, like me, you’re a smarter kind of guy, put away your winter wools and choose a lighter unlined cotton blazer. Combine with a pocket square and tie for a formal look.
When the weather’s finally good enough to get our legs out, I’ll be pulling on these printed tailored shorts with a plain T-shirt and – hopefully – a tan.
Slip these snaffle loafers on with slim chinos (remembering to roll the hems) for an elegant spring look. Wear with invisible socks to stop any rubbing.
This lightweight straw hat has a classic trilby shape and a two-tone finish that makes it stand out from the crowd. Perfect for when the sun’s got his hat on too.
The timeless stripey tee is a natty spring staple. I like this one’s soft indigo wash, which gives it the feel of an old favourite from day one.
Our calendars will soon be chock-a-block with weddings, and this classy Linen Miracle suit fits the bill. Its crease-resistant tech makes it just as smart on a cruise ship, too.

I’ve been a fan of woven belts ever since I picked one up on the Amalfi coast. They’re smart but not too formal and adjust easily to a holiday waistline.
Softer than a silk style, the knitted tie is my go-to for everything from evenings out to weddings. It’s a sartorial side-step from the norm that’ll set you apart.
