MENSWEAR TRENDS FOR 2018


With the New Year fast approaching, I thought it would be interesting to look at the top new trends in menswear for 2018.

NOT JUST A SUIT: 
Suits are a staple in every man's wardrobe, but the newest suit trend is one for the more daring. I personally think this trend is really cool but I can't imagine myself wearing it. I think that turning up to a wedding or special occasion in one of these suits could come across quite narcissistic and almost attention seeking. 


JUMPSUIT: 

I love this trend. I personally have invested in a jumpsuit in preparation for my trip to New York in January. I feel as though this trend has been creeping in for quite a long time despite the controversy behind the idea of a man wearing a romper. As demonstrated on the photographs above, a jumpsuit can look extremely masculine. This trend is daring, but Vivienne Westwood is sending men in skirts down her runway, so really a jumpsuit isn't the most rebellious thing in the world. 


TAPE IT UP: 


Since the obsession with the brand 'OFF-WHITE' the idea of tape as a detail is now everywhere. I think that it can bring quite a boring look to life. I have recently bought a pair of trousers with red tape detail down the sides and I can't wait to wear them and embrace this trend. 


SURF READY DUDE:
I feel as though this trend is embracing the 'dress like your dad' trend but it in a way that is more accessible and less daring. I feel as though the key part of this trend is the print but I also feel that the fabric is almost just as important. Viscose is probably the most commonly used fabric for Hawaiian shirts. I love viscose. I don't know what it is about that material, but I just love wearing it. I have quite a few printed viscose shirts, so I am looking forward to experimenting with this trend. 

COLOURS: 

These three colours; statement red, bright orange and highlighter green, are the three colours that will be so prominent next year. These colours will be seen a lot during spring/summer but I feel as though they could stick around for the whole year. The highlighter green colour is actually described as 'Lime Punch' on Pantone and it is my favourite colour for the new season. Unfortunately I don't own anything in this colour, but its definitely the first thing on my list when searching through the January sales.  


Whilst looking through all of these 2018 menswear trends, I have noticed that all of them are embracing the maximalism era. This is something that I am really excited about seeing! I can't wait to see people experimenting and being more daring! 

THANK YOU
