Dulce De Leche: Sophisticated Caramel and Cream Menswear


Menswear turns a decidedly more sophisticated leaf for spring, employing the help of shades like caramel, camel and cream to accomplish the look. The neutrals make the pairing process quite simple while delivering a finished look that feels rich and stylish in that easy way we all vie for. Looking to the runways of such names as Ermenegildo Zegna and Salvatore Ferragamo tells a story of a stylish man on the go. Similarly, incorporating extras such as great, supple leather Gucci totes or cashmere separates from Thomas Pink is a great way to approach this nearly monochromatic trend. Whether tackling the look from head to toe or simply in small doses, you’re sure to look oh-so-sweet.
