Fashion is not just the domain of women; men also want to look trendy and stylish. While some classics like grey suits and khaki pants never go out of fashion, one needs to keep an eye on the current and emerging trends to strike the perfect balance between traditional and modern. After all, style is individualistic; it means different things for different people. But te universality of it is that it should make you feel comfortable and confident.
The menswear trends 2021 are varied; no matter what your physique is like you’re sure to find something to complement it. Whether you want a casual look for get-togethers, a formal one for the office or a special one with your significant other, there’s plenty to experiment with and make your style statement. Here are some of the most popular 2021 menswear trends that’ll set you in the right direction.
The last few years have witnessed a return to the 70s’ trend of florals and its popularity continues in 2021, especially during spring and summertime. Whether it is a T-shirt or a short, every designer seems to be coming up with new and unique patterns and colors for floral menswear. A suggestion however would be that if you’re choosing to wear vibrant florals, keep it a one-piece statement. Being covered in florals from head to toe would be going a little overboard, so keep the rest of the look muted to balance it overall.
The trend of athleisure began because of quarantine during the Covid-19 pandemic but people loved it quite a lot and have hence stuck to it. With work from home becoming the new normal, dressing comfortably is a priority for most people. And there’s nothing better than wearing athleisure for those long meetings on Zoom and Teams.
3#. Animalistic Prints
The animal world has always been a major source of inspiration for designers who realize their wildest fantasies through clothes designing. Tiger prints, zebra prints, and the like are still all the rage. While some designers continue to use the prints in their original colors, some have even dared to experiment with them, resulting in purple leopard prints and blue pythons. Among these designers are Tom Ford, Versace and Givenchy.
4#. Relaxed Tailoring
In a post-pandemic world, the priority of the consumer in terms of clothing is centered around comfort, practicality and style. This is why designers are channeling their energy into making relaxed fits. The strict rules of suits are being eased down to lend air to tailored pieces. This is the resurgence of the styles that were popular during the 80s and 90s. Relaxed cuts may not be appealing to those who believe in conventional formal dressing but believe us they look incredibly stylish when executed well.
5#. Vertical Stripes
There are many reasons for you to opt for trendy vertical stripes. They not only give you a neat and refined look but also make you appear a lot slimmer and taller. You can choose from various kinds of stripes based on your mood and preference. You could go for stripes of different widths, classic stripes or seven seersucker in case you want to keep the look subtle.
6#. Soft Textures
2021 menswear is filled with designs in soft textures such as velour and velvet. These textures are reminiscent of the motifs of Victorian England; a lot of designers see the 2021 man as a traditional English club member. This is why well-known designers like Dolce & Gabbana and Ralph Lauren have used velvet fabric to create Bohemian ensembles and accessories.
7#. Logos & Letters
Another trend from the 80s that has found its way back into closets and designers’ collections is the increasing use of logos and letters on men’s clothing. Be it t-shirts, hoodies, turtlenecks, or sweaters, 2021 menswear is packed with logos and random letters.
8#. Bermuda Shorts
Bermuda shorts are your ideal wear for summer 2021. When purchasing one, it’s best to have them fitted right above the knees. They would look even better if you pair them with open-toed sandals.
