The men’s style world is, thankfully, a tad less fickle than the merry-go-round realm of women’s fashion. The concept of “trends” doesn’t really resonate with most men, which is why they tend to buy more expensive items but less often. The way men dress is slowly getting more colourful, more adventurous and less constrained by old rules and dress codes. As white-collar workers where hoodies to the office and streetwear designers reimagine tailoring, change is everywhere.
So, this spring/summer, you don’t have to concern yourself with the messy business of sorting the cool from the crap. Thankfully, key shouts from the 2019 men’s fashion trends are here—and ready to inject a little fresh energy into any dude’s wardrobe.
Kaleidoscope of Pastels
We all have a comfort zone. A place where we feel cosy and safe and dry. For most guys, this takes the form of a woolly cocoon in some shade of navy, black or grey. But every now and then we need to step outside. So, fortunately, the colour is making a long-overdue comeback. Pastel colours are a big trend at the moment from the high end to the high street. Creating an ensemble with them can go from quite safe and simple to extremely bold and charming. The perfect starting point for beginners- they should try pastel with a solid neutral shade, more like black, charcoal, navy or skin. The neutral shade will accentuate the charming pastel shade.
Pleated Pants just got a stylish new remix
Fashion system, as it often happens, is ready to steer the other way. A jump forward that draws inspiration from the past. Forget about the slim fit and the essential silhouettes we were used to, now men are going towards much more comfortable wearability, Yeahh its pleats. A pleat is a crease you sometimes see going down the front fold of pant legs, adding another dimension to the surface of the fabric. There is the number of pleated pants from front pleats to backward pleats and from modern to vintage ones. One can amp up the aesthetic by pairing this style with a Cuban collar shirt, white T-shirt or a classic button-down that’s rolled at the sleeves. Sneakers and dress shoes are the best options for this outfit and try a lightweight blazer to complete the ensemble.
Men in Heels
Outside of sneakers, heeled shoes have been a trend for men in 2019. Though men’s heels are coming in all shapes and sizes, there’s indeed something undeniably cool and fresh about the Cuban heel in particular: that subtle lift gives even the most classic pair of jeans or suits a super sleek, modern feel. The stacked heels are also a refreshing change from the sneaker craze that’s been dominating the men’s streetwear scene the past few months
Camo getting trippy these days
Camo is another men’s style trend that by now feels like more than a trend. Instead, camo feels like a staple that every guy can and should feel comfortable wearing in a non-military setting. This print design can look great as long as it's styled properly, so to get you up to speed and give you the confidence you need to rock this street-ready look. The design of a camo jacket or camo printed trouser as outerwear is a bit of a classic and less of a bold statement, making it much easier to fit into your wardrobe and you’ll be the coolest man on the yacht.
Monochrome: The cheat code for good style
The monochrome or one colour is a classic yet sits perfectly in a contemporary world, it is suave and sophisticated yet rebellious at the same juncture. It has become a trend that many designers and other premier brands have incorporated in their collections. Men can try wearing a monochrome outfit with different coloured shoes to make heads turn!
Menswear has blossomed into its own strange, beautiful beast. These following 2019 men’s fashion trends are sure to delight the most style-conscious—and style-evasive—men in your life. Stock up.
