#OOTD 115 Festivals SS18

Menswear blogger Chic Geek OOTD festival fashion

We all love a good festival, it's as British as bunting and warm cider. So, when it's time to get those chicken legs out, go bold and put bright colour with bright colour. (Oh, and something waterproof, we all know how the weather works!).

It's also practical, because it's good to stand out from the crowd, just for your friends' benefit. Just add some Gallagher swagger!

#OOTD 115 Ginger Pink

Menswear blogger Chic Geek OOTD

When you're a ginger, you can match your Millenial Pink to your nipples! Bring out the baby pink pastels in various shades this spring. Add touches of coral to highlight and contrast and look for classic, collegiate shapes in jackets and sweatshirts.

Accessorise with a handful of balloons!

You've probably got the idea - I've been banging on about them for months - that this season is all about vertical stripes.

Every designer and brand worth their stripes showed multiple variations of them. There are many ways to wear the trend - matching and mixed. Clash, contrast or complement, the choice is yours!

Your shirt should be like fashion, this season - one minute you're in, and one minute you're out. Or, you could just compromise, like seen on the Marni catwalk, and wear it half-in and half-out.

It's like messy business attire. The walk of shame, the morning-from-the-night-before chic. Try it.

OOTD menswear World Cup The Chic Geek retro vintage sportswear

With the Russian World Cup coming, or should that be looming?! We're going to get all nostalgic for Panini stickers and short-short football kits. Retro sportswear shows no sign of slowing down in fashion circles and anything branded, or with brand's old logos, is as popular as ever.

For this World Cup, dress like it's Argentina 78. Think Sta-Press denim, simple loafers and you're favourite, skin-tight football top. Come on, England!

#OOTD 72 Peacock Geek 4/4

souvenir jacket spring summer 2016 menswear chic geek

Teach me tiger! One of the season's most fun menswear items, the souvenir jacket is a kitsch take on the classic bomber. Great for holidays or just something to have a bit of fun with. Forget Gucci, Saint Laurent or Valentino, this is only £55 at ASOS. It's also well padded for warmth.

Wear it, here, layered up with lots of pattern or print in fashion's new take on maximalism or use it as a standout item with a simple plain T-shirt and trousers, letting the jacket do the talking.

How do you wear yours? Get involved #PeacockGeek
