Women have trusted Saffron Road for over 20 years for the best in quality and fashion. We've been working to do the same for our Saffron guy for the past couple years and now we have it down! Men's fashion doesn't change at quite the rapid pace that women's does, but that doesn't mean it has to be boring! We've found the must haves for every man's wardrobe, but made sure it's the right mix of fun prints, perfect fits and bold colours, while maintaining the same quality you'd expect from Saffron Road.

Our guy likes to have FUN! Mixing muted plaids and bright solids make the sometimes preppy look fun and fashionable. Autumn Cashmere and Vince play up texture with perforated details and colour blocking, yet offer the ultimate in comfort and fit. The classic Vince chino is ideal for any look. Rolled up and cuffed to give a more playful feel, or worn at it's regular length, this is the perfect pant for all the Mr. Saffrons our there!

Whether your head is in a book or in the game, it's easy to add a sporty element to any guy's look. A casual, lightweight crew neck sweater is perfect over a tee or a button up shirt. Roll up the hem on your jeans, pants, and even your shorts, and pair them back to a low profile runner. We're seeing blue everywhere! Bright indigo, deep navy, and weathered blue are great worn together for a tonal look or layered back to neutrals. Blue is this season's most popular colour.

There's a little bad ass in every guy, and we channel that in the most sophisticated way possible! Dark denim and a leather jacket are a staple for every man's closet. Tying your plaid shirt around your waist isn't just a 90's one hit wonder, it's back and we love this look! Keep in mind, not all plaid shirts are created equal. This season, Ben Sherman offers short sleeve button ups and light weight long sleeve options, and Vince shows luxe, bold colours.

Once you find your perfect TEE you are set! Get the right fit; slim through the chest and body, with the hem hitting just below the belt. Throwing on a James Perse Tee is probably the most comfortable decision you can make in your day. Want a great way to add colour to your outfit? Vince offers the season's best in colour and can be a little more fitted, making it perfect for layering. Either way, we have effortless dressing perfected with the right t-shirt.

We firmly believe you can never have too many shoes! Slide in to a comfy Frye shoe, lace up a sleek boot from Modern Vintage or keep it classy with a lace-up loafer from Bed Stu. We've got you covered for all your footwear wants and needs!

SPRING 2014 TREND REPORT

It's FINALLY here! Longer, warmer days filled with promises of sun kissed skin and liberated toes. We can't help but daydream of weekends at the cottage, BBQ dinners, backyard weddings, road trips and garden parties. Whatever the coming months have in store for you, we're certain we can dress you for the occasion. Here's our Saffron Road Spring'14 survival kit: the MUST HAVE trends, looks and accessories to get you through this long awaited season.

C O L O U R  &  P R I N T

Anything goes with colour and print for Spring! Go bold with floral, plaid and graphic prints. Play with pop colours in yellow, pink, green and orange. Keep cool with neutral, muddy tones. We're hearing a lot about the always-popular-for-Spring pastel. We understand that this trend can sometimes be tricky, so we suggest trying a soft, blush pink.  

S P O R T Y   C H I C

We put enough effort into making our workout gear look good, so why not take it to next level and make comfort look fabulous?! We're seeing this trend everywhere! In footwear we have the wedge runner and platform slip on. Dresses from Robert Rodriguez's and Bailey 44 are detailing with perforated textiles. Judith and Charles, DWP and theory perfect the slouchy, sporty chic pant. Sporting this look is fun!

B O T T O M S   U P

Things are looking up...in the rise, that is. Be it the still popular skinny pant, or the fun and flirty circle skirt, you have plenty of options. This is perfect timing as it will be a necessity for the new shapes and lengths we're seeing in tops this Spring.

C R O P   I T

Not sure you want to bare your midriff? Don't panic! It's not the only way to wear this popular trend. Pair your mini top to your high rise bottom or try layering it over a dress. You can even wear it to the office layered over a blouse and pencil skirt. Don't knock it 'til you try it.

L I K E   A   L A D Y

Sophistication and elegance go beyond colour and accessories this season. The lady-like trend comes in the form of suiting, skirting, blouses, and dresses. Within these forms, you will see a dramatic change in structure and shape with feminine details such as florals, soft pinks, and lace.

A C C E S S OR I Z E

At Saffron Road we offer a variety of jewelry to suit every possible outfit your wardrobe has to offer. You can sparkle with Myka, channel your inner bohemian beach babe with Chan Luu or find intention with Pyrrha and Love Heals. These collections not only enhance your wardrobe, but make for fabulous gifts.

10 Reasons

We couldn't agree more with Elite Daily's Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Dress Up:

1. Looking good improves your overall mood and personality. 

2. It makes a good impression.

3. You never know who you will run into. Don’t you want to look your best?

4. Life is too short to wear boring clothes.

5. The feeling of confidence. When you look great, you feel great.

6. Fashion is a method of self-expression. Express Yourself!

7. Acts as an instant pick-me-up.

8. If you’ve got it, you should flaunt it.

9. It puts you on your “A” game.

10. You deserve to look fabulous!

Office Ready

We haven't even hit the peak of winter and are already trying to find ways to brighten up our cold weather wardrobe! We love this printed Rachel Roy top and pencil skirt; the floral print is fun and vibrant.  In keeping with current colour trends, we paired the black based print with a navy Judith & Charles jacket. 

Our guy is sporting some classic pieces from our men's collection.  Depending on your lifestyle, our menswear can be incorporated into a casual, work, or formal outfit.

Fall Casual

Todays beautiful weather calls for a comfortable, casual outfit.  Try a cable knit sweater, boyfriend jeans, pointed flats, and a knit headband.  Our ensemble features Theory, Rich & Skinny, Frye, Ugg Accessories, and a cup of tea!

Date Night!

There are a couple things to think about when trying to plan a fun night out in London, Ontario:  1. Where to go?  2.  What to wear? 

A favourite dinner spot for the SR ladies is The Tasting Room, a couple blocks down from us on Richmond Street. We love that you can choose a few plates from their sizable appetizer menu and share them, or enjoy a delicious main. We recommend taste testing a flight of wine and finding a new favourite to have with your meal. 

Below Jesse and Holly are trendy-casual ready for their date! Their look is effortlessly chic with pieces that offer versatility. With just a few easy changes in accessories, Holly's look can easily take her from the office desk right to dinner. Jesse's sweater can be worn back to a button up shirt and slim pant for a more work appropriate look.

Fun and fashionable, both in attire and location!    

Jesse is wearing:  Autumn Cashmere, James Perse, The Fry Company, Graf & Lantz and Fidelity Denim  

Holly is wearing: Vince Camuto, Doma, Marie Saint Pierre and  Amet & Ladoue

Trend Alert: The Silk Bomber

The silk bomber is trending for both the current Fall season and moving forward into Spring 2014! We've picked up this fun trend from Equipment because when it comes to silk, no one does it as well as they do. We're currently offering both a classic black & white print and a bold floral print as featured above.


So how do you make use of these must have jackets? We suggest throwing one over a LBD, pair it with a fitted skirt or back to a great pair of jeans. Play with layers and textures under the bomber, like a boxy tee or fine knit sweater. Still not sure? Take a look and get inspired by some street styles that have incorporated this hot trend.
