From the classic elegant total white to casual with fluorescent prints: the shirts directly from the ss 20 catwalks
The shirt , which has always been the emblem and fundamental item of the male wardrobe. Precisely for this reason, analyzing it you can understand the new spring summer 2020 trends, in which the center of gravity of men’s fashion has been moved from formal to eccentric .
It must be admitted that the shirt has always played the role of the male style balance, and its fabric, workmanship, and colors tell a lot about the wearer.
Etiquette teaches that the white shirt is synonymous with professionalism and rigor while the short-sleeved shirt with a straight cut is not even considered as such, perhaps because it is reminiscent of the Hollywood tradition that in the movies always kills the character who dresses poorly .
But designers no longer seem to think so, turning their creativity towards new creative horizons . First of all the trends that characterize men’s fashion this spring is the particular use of color .
We abandon the classic white and light blue, which however versatile and essential in the wardrobe, always have that too basic and traditional quid. These are replaced by pastel colors such as lilac, mint green and sugar paper, while maintaining the classic cut of the men’s shirt.
The level of originality increases when the stamps are added to the set of nuances. The printed shirt has always been a very complex garment to wear, one of those double-edged weapons which, if used well, result in a sophisticated and enviable look, but which otherwise pierce us with the sharp and lethal blade of kitsch.
However, it seems that some designers have found the solution to this problem, revealing shirts with the right balance of flair and wearability.
Valentino focuses on combining a classic tie-dye print in psychedelic shades with digital and fantasy prints such as dragons and floating dystopian cities, making his half-sleeved shirts real works of art to wear.

Despite everything, there is never a hint of dear old white and blue shirts, present in the collections of Giorgio Armani, Thom Browne and Hugo Boss , just to name a few.
To be combined with jeans, sneakers and amphibians, with cotton trousers, cargo models and moccasins for a more original and creative look, the shirts for spring summer 2020 are like experiments , the result of a mix of many different ingredients exploded on a white canvas .
Apparently every patch of color, every print and fabric looks random, but every detail of every single combination is exactly where it should be, and, perhaps for the first time in history, you can wear a short-sleeved shirt with a tropical print without dying all beginning of the film.
To complete your summer outfit you will definitely need a total white sneaker. Here is the selection of Wait on the best white sneakers of the season !
