Gentlemen, get your spring wardrobes ready! The warmer season is fast approaching, so make sure you’re not caught in your cold-weather gear when the sun makes its presence felt.

Don’t know what you should be wearing for spring? A good place to start looking is The Trends on MR PORTER.COM. To help you navigate the 12 items on their hitlist, we’ve created 4 what-to-wear spring looks that mix and match different menswear styles. Check them out below!

Spring Style #1: Spring Sportsman

Do you play light sports every now and then, but still want to look good pre- and post-game? Pair streamlined shorts with a laid-back v-neck for a smart look that offers unrestricted movement. This chambray varsity jacket finishes off the athletic look!

Spring Style 3#: Active Minimalist

Activewear pieces don’t necessarily have to be painted with bright colors. With designers increasingly using sportswear for inspiration, expect to see more tailored-looking activewear in fashion’s favorite minimalist motif: black and white.

An outfit of simplified colors gives you more opportunity to be adventurous with the textures and fit of the pieces; case in point: the stud details on these Valentino slip-on sneakers.

Find yourself jetting to sunnier destinations each spring? Make sure you hit the resorts and sands in style! The toned-down design of Sacai’s floral shorts make it easy for you to adopt spring’s floral trend, while the leather sandals are a classier alternative to flip flops.
