Men have become more fashionable throughout the years…….A return to the 1970s has been one of the overarching trends of the last five years, and it shows no sign of slowing down in 2021. For the spring/summer season, it manifests itself as floral prints a la grandma’s curtains, which is actually a lot more wearable than it sounds..
Splashing bold florals onto shorts, vacation shirts and tailoring amongst others. But fashion experts suggest keeping it to one statement piece per outfit and as always, ensuring the rest of your look is nice and muted.
This season we’ll be seeing the return of longer, wider shorts, echoing a broader shift that has been taking place across all areas of menswear for some time now
The key to nailing it is making sure you get the length just right. Aim for a couple of inches above the top of the kneecap and opt for tailored styles that can be paired with either casual or smarter pieces with that blend together.
A resurgence of the styles popular in the 1980s and 1990s that has been on the up for some time now and while it may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it can look great when executed well.
Business suits look smart for the office or that special occasion, why not pay your local tailor a visit. Relaxed well-cut suits can still be flattering, but only when they fit properly….. Whether it was oversized suiting or wide-leg trousers, pinstripes were everywhere at the menswear shows says fashion experts…It’s a welcome return for one of the coolest patterns in tailoring.
Looking around it seems that mid-wash denim is everywhere in the menswear collections and this time it looks as though it could be here to stay. Denim never seems to go out of style.
Old habits die hard, but if your ankles are still on constant display, this is your last chance to get them covered. Bare ankles were one of the overarching trends of the 2010s, but a year into the 2020s they’re beginning to look more than a little dated.
If you must brandish the lower portions of your legs while wearing trousers, we’d advise limiting it to the summer months. Nothing looks more out of place than a pair of exposed ankles peeping out from under the cuffs of a pair of jeans on a frosty winter’s day. There are some really nice socks out there. Why not treat yourself to a pair?
Due to its good looks, ruggedness and timeless appeal, leather will continue to be a trend winter after winter. A quality bomber jacket made from the stuff will probably be one of the soundest style investments you’re ever likely to make. If you haven’t already added one to your collection, this coming winter is the time to do it.
Skinny leg wear is off the menu and even slim-fits are dwindling. In their place, we’re witnessing a return to the relaxed-fit pants of the 1980s and 1990s.
It doesn’t seem like long ago that cargo trousers were the absolute pinnacle of uncool. The more pockets a pair of pants had, the less trendy they became. Yet this year that couldn’t be further from the truth…. Pockets are back, and this time they’re here to stay.
From the return of florals to the continued widening of silhouettes, these are the men’s fashion trends to embrace in 2021.
