Springtime is probably the best season for creating new styles – it’s already warm enough for leaving the thick jacket at home but still cool enough for wearing your favorite shirts, sweaters and pants. It’s the perfect in-between weather, where the first rays of sunshine make you want to go outside, go skating, have a beer with friends in a park, or a coffee date in the city.
That said, if you want to keep things sustainable and not buy a load of trendy new items, it’s not always easy to combine looks that are timeless and modern at the same time. After all, sustainability isn’t about following short-lived trends but creating sophisticated outfits that look good for longer than just one season. That’s why we at SANVT show you three styles with some of our sustainable essentials that work not only in Spring 2021 but also across the seasons, and for any occasion.
Casual: Tapered jeans + Sweatshirt
One of the main trends at this spring’s fashion shows is minimalism – representing a sustainable lifestyle rather than just ever-changing seasonal trends. If you want to go for a timeless and minimalist style, choose light washed tapered jeans with a basic sweatshirt. For an even more minimal look, wear a pair of black tapered jeans with a black sweatshirt in a monochrome color scheme.
This style works also on cooler spring days (and evenings) if you wear a coat above and a beanie. To make the style more spring-like, pair it with some cool sneakers, fancy socks, and a pair of sunglasses. This style is the perfect choice for a casual skater look – especially if you cuff the jeans around the ankles and wear them with a baseball cap.
And if you’re still looking for a sustainable sweatshirt as the ultimate contemporary essential to complement that style, check out The Perfect Sweatshirt from SANVT, crafted from 100% fine-combed cotton. Or if you want to go for the more relaxed version and wear the tapered jeans with a loose t-shirt, you can also layer it with The Zip Hoodie, featuring a soft and breathable French Terry Loopback. Either way, the casual look is a style that always works!

Smart: Chino + Statement Vintage Shirt
Speaking of casual, when it comes to pants, you really can’t go wrong with a versatile pair of chinos this spring. Chinos are relaxed, easy to style and look great with almost anything from a white t-shirt to a turtleneck. They’re the perfect all-rounder – being either casual or smart, depending on how you combine them.
If you want to give the chino a new edgy twist, combine chinos with a loose vintage statement shirt. Tucked in and open, layered with a t-shirt below, the vintage shirt will give the style a 70s vibe which is one of the main trends for Spring 2021. Simple sneakers or chunky oxford shoes are the best options for this outfit. Stay tuned for our updated and redesigned Smart Chino from SANVT – the perfect choice to be comfy and on-trend at any time.

Dandy: Pleated Trousers + Basic T-Shirt
If you want to go for a more classic yet daring look, you can pair high-waisted and cropped pleated trousers with a tucked-in basic t-shirt and accessories like a belt, fisherman beanie, or a hat. Pleated trousers are a versatile and timeless pair of pants to have in your wardrobe. This classic item can change your outfit entirely and is a vintage must-have for everyone who aims for a timeless style.
You can find these type of pants either in your grandfather’s closet or in any vintage store. Besides a basic t-shirt like The Perfect T-Shirt from SANVT, you can amp up this vintage classic by pairing it with a Cuban collar shirt, or an elegant turtleneck. White sneakers, dress shoes or boots complete the dandy look. A timeless style that will still look just as good 10 years from now as it did 50 years ago! True style never goes out of fashion, after all.

We hope that after following our style guide for men, you’ll be far less confused about what to wear in spring. And the best thing is, you can mix and match these styles depending on the occasion – the pleated trousers go just as well with a sweatshirt, the chino looks smart and cool with a basic white t-shirt and white sneakers, and the tapered jeans work well with a loose vintage shirt or The Longsleeve T-Shirt from SANVT. Now you’re more than ready to welcome the spring with style and confidence. Cheers!
