Top Five Summer Trends: Mens Edition
A few years back, while perusing the ‘mens’ section for a birthday gift, I had an epiphany - menswear is better. Like a lot better. The tailored cuts, simple shapes and room to layer make for a much more adventurous dressing process. One I was hellbent on incorporating into my own wardrobe. Fast forward three or so years later and the androgynous look is all the rage. A trend (dare I say, movement?) providing us with the perfect platform to get spicy and step across the aisle and into a pair of slightly oversized chinos and a coveted scumbro Hawaiian shirt.
All this to say, that while this is our Summer Trends: Men’s Edition, any self-proclaimed fashionista will benefit from exploring the looks of the season. Happy shopping!
Sleek and fitted looks are back in a big way this season. Seen across the SS19 runways in London, Milan and Paris, an overall “return to elegance” has taken center stage.
Get yourself a pair of short-shorts, trust me! Another trend seen all over from brands and designers like Prada, Off-White and more. Straight men are certainly the last to this party, but we are welcoming them with a glass of rosé and open arms!
Not your kid brother’s tie-dye either. Slowly but surely we’ve been seeing more takes on the well known psychedelic rainbow swirls, opting for more simplified patterns that turn a look without taking it over completely.
To be clear, I am not referring to fanny or “belt” packs. While the slouchy, chest grazing, fanny pack is definitely here to stay, it is time to graduate to a more structured and aesthetically interesting method of carrying your phone, keys and wallet. This season, you need to find yourself a handbag!
Last, but certainly not least…
Clunky, generally ugly, and all around the coolest addition to any Summer wardrobe - the hiking sandal! A sandal with many names, forms, price points and styling choices it’s impossible to not include.
