Mr. Porter: Color Me Confident


Hard to believe with this lingering winter gloom, but spring is in fact underway, and color is seeping back into our wardrobes slowly, but surely. The confidence color gives you–in the form of a bold red, mid-length pair of swim shorts–will have you standing taller and braving the water earlier. It’s a statement.

See and be seen in pale yellow Oliver Spencer round-frame sunglasses. Stand out among the ordinary in a Kelly green crew-neck sweatshirt by Margiela that was made for rooftop bar outings. Make a statement.

(And hey! Maybe if we wear color, Mother Nature will follow suit. Until then, at least we have this blue slim-fit Alexander McQueen.)
