We were fortunate enough to have our opinion enlisted by Capitol File Magazine regarding Spring trends for men.  If you've kept up with IG over the years you know we rarely endorse trends.  However, it is nearly impossible to escape them and it's best to be mildly aware of them rather than pretend they don't exist.  Remember, a trend is just that, a trend.  So keep them in perspective and approach them wisely. "We recently revealed a new spring trend for women, so now it’s time to turn our attention to menswear. We chatted with DC style and fashion expert Grant Harris, founder of image consulting company Image Granted, LLC, to find out the top five items every man must have in his closet this season.

For starters, Harris tells us that “bright and saturated colors” are in. Whether they’re on shoes or jackets, it’s all about going bold this season—and orange is one standout. “Going out calls for one special item to grab attention,” Harris adds. “The jacket, the shirt, the shoes, the cufflinks, whatever it is, one thing [should] just be the center of attention while everything else is the supporting cast.”
