This spring, many of us will surely go big and bold with our wardrobe selection. Could it be the beautiful weather? Maybe some newfound confidence? Could it be the knowledge of having three full seasons to run and hide from winter that injects bravery into our sartorial choices? In a way, I think all have an impact on our choice to step out of the style box.

While playing dress-up can be loads of fun, especially when there is a conscious desire to reach for the unexpected, keep in mind that nothing drastic is ever necessary. It can be as simple as reaching for a double-breasted blazer in lieu of a single-breasted one or a cardigan to help add that supplementary level of class you are in search of. Let’s be honest, double-breasted tailoring is a surefire way to add some sophistication to smart casual ensembles while helping redefine formal ones.

Don’t just take my word for it though; these time-tested classics were on full display at the recent Gucci Men’s SS13 fashion show. The crowd in attendance were treated to double-breasted pieces in varying colors, prints, and patterns. My favorite look from the campaign featured a model decked out in a slim-fitting double-breasted jacket in a chocolate brown shade and printed with polka dots. The jacket was matched with suit trousers, brown loafers, and a clean white button-down shirt. Although not part of the actual ensemble, I choose not to downplay the importance of the Mad Men-esque slicked-back coif as it helped to accentuate the class factor of the overall look.
