Unlike women, men are a bit more sheepish when it comes to trends and fashion. Actually, men tend to cling to timeless fashion, like ripped jeans and monochromatic clothes. But it doesn’t mean they are not paying attention to fashion or slowly trying (is that a Yeezy or Adidas NMD, I see?). So without further ado, here are some fashion trends men should at least try this year.
This one could a bit tough to handle for some guys who have been accustomed to wearing black, white and gray. It can intimidating to wear colored clothes. There’s a stigma that you are overreaching in terms of fashion, or generally will look like a rainbow. But the trick here is gradually include colored clothes in your wardrobe. A colored tie here and there, a magenta shirt then combine it with darks you love. This will make you feel more comfortable, and sooner or later you’ll be able to wear more colorful clothes.
Retro sports wear
There’s a common trend in fashion-it comes back at certain periods. However, this time it’s different. Even if retro fashion comes back, it has been updated for more modern times. Case in point, retro sportswear. Giant brands like Fila, Adidas and Tommy Hilfiger have tossed their hats in the trend, and worked wonders for their respective sales.
It can work for a guy’s wardrobe as well. There’s nothing like wearing a blast from the past with a modern bang. Just as effective as a modern shoe or apparel, but with that classic appeal everyone seems to love nowadays. Can you wear it outside the gym or after your training session? Most are made for that purpose as well, which means our nest topic is…
Speaking of sportswear, that’s another fashion men should invest in. Now referred to as ‘Athleisure’, sportswear has been transformed into a lifestyle-sports apparel hybrid. Long gone are the baggy sweats and the high-cut, stiff shoes. Brands like Adidas, are at the forefront of Athleisure wear, churning out shoes and apparel that are good enough for every day wear (even for the catwalk, actually) as well as technologically-advanced and comfortable enough to be used for sports and training. It’s rare to get the best of both worlds nowadays, so guys should make the most of the opportunity.
Solid primary colors are nice in all-for shirts, pants and suits. But you have to live a little dangerously. While that seems like too much of an exaggeration, after all, you are going to wear stripped clothes, not just off a cliff. Most guys feel wearing vertical stripes is similar to jumping off a fashion cliff. Truth be told though, vertical stripes make any men look better, regardless of their body shape and appearance. You can choose the thickness of the stripes to emphasize effects.
Finally, remember that whatever the trend you wear, wear it with confidence. And that’s half of the job done.
