Tommy Hilfiger has been a classic American label since 1986. The brand is known for giving time-honored classics a modern twist, and is the definition of East Coast chic; think cable-knit sweaters, seersucker shorts, crisp button-downs, and boat shoes. From the tennis court, to the pool, to the putting green, Tommy Hilfiger attire will serve its purpose in keeping men and women timeless, clean, and fresh.
According to the maestro himself, there are a few words of wisdom to live by in order to master the Tommy Hilfiger look. First and foremost, it is a sign of insecurity to be overdressed. Luckily, Hilfiger attire is versatile enough to cover a number of scenarios, keeping men and women looking polished and confident, but not the least bit overdone. Secondly, high quality, classic shoes are a must; Tommy Hilfiger boat shoes or loafers will do the trick. Next comes the rule for weekday attire: Monday through Friday means crisp, pulled-together looks; nothing too casual. Finally, Mr. Hilfiger claims the most foolproof way to look eternally chic is to dress with a nod to the preppy; a button-down, V-neck sweater, and khakis will always be in style.
For 2011, Tommy Hilfiger menswear involves revisions of the classics. Crisp light-cotton khakis, rolled at the ankle were abundant on the runway, and paired with everything from madras-printed blazers to cargo-pocket military jackets. Cardigans also reined the runway, boasting stripes, toggle-ties, and solid, nautical colors; they are the perfect layering piece for any spring wardrobe. Another popular style choice for spring 2011 is the boat shoe; Tommy Hilfiger offers them in a variety of materials, styles, and colors, such as classic leather, suede, and canvas. These shoes can be found throughout the look-book, and can be a great addition to any outfit, whether it is a sports jacket and khakis or swim trunks and a hoodie.
