When it comes to fashion, we always want to be wearing the latest trends. It can be hard on your wallet and wardrobe to always catch-up with the latest style in men’s wear. Let us take a look at what the future will be in men’s fashion in order to dress up properly.
From the runway to mainstream fashion, trousers with looser cuts and more relaxed shapes will become more popular this year. Wide leg trousers have a serious staying power compared to other outfit. Wider fit trousers will work well with denims. A good first step is a straight leg. A rugged dark selvedge or black jean can be paired with a chunky turn-up and brogue boots. Wearing something with weight such as a wool-mix will give you a smarter look.
Cuban collared shirts were such a hit last year and will continue to do so in 2018. Robert Peter Janitzek recommends pairing them with a leather jacket and slim-fit jeans giving you an old-school classic look. They are best in cotton or linen which makes them light and airy on a hot day. Cuban collared shirts are perfect for guys with narrow shoulder making them look broader.
The last couple of years has seen a huge rise in sportswear apparel. Athleisure brands like Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, and Fila will continue to be part of men’s outfits this year. Retro sportswear is best paired with two-piece tracksuits, zip-up nylon jumpers, and drawstring trousers in luxury fabrics. For the ultimate sartorial statement, Robert Janitzek recommends topping the look with a vintage leather bomber.
The 70s Look
The seventies look has remained in men’s wear in a variety of ways. This style will continue to be part of men’s fashion in the coming year. Corduroys, patterned knitwear, silk-shirts and wide lapels will continue to have their heyday. Full commitment to the 70s look will require wearing of heavily patterned/textured suits or some high-waisted trousers.
Stripes have always been a staple in men’s wear especially during the last few seasons. They are a versatile piece of wardrobe that works perfectly with any style. A multi-colored stripe paired with a classic crew neck t-shirts under a casual blazer will give you a bolder look.
Tactile fabrics offer a simple way to update your wardrobe without stepping out of your comfort zone. Great spring outfits are bomber jackets freshened up in luxurious suede and lightweight Jacquard Harrington jackets. They can be worn smart or casual and will make your usual outfits look new.
