Men’s Fall Fashion Trends for 2017
Some say that men’s fashion doesn’t change and as long as you have jeans and a t-shirt you’re fine.
There’s nothing further from the truth.
Jeans come in all different cuts, rises and color, and t-shirts are just a Pandora box of details: graphics or no? Tight or loose? Long or short? Rolled sleeves or regular?
Men’s fashion changes with every season, and it’s something you can witness in the different colors, materials, and fits that comes along with it. Additionally, finishing touches like shoes and outerwear are especially crucial and can very easily make or break an outfit.
Thankfully, investing in a few staples in men’s fashion, including best basics, classics, stylish evening wear and casual street style looks, means that you are ready for anything that comes your way. This autumn, choose from the following trends and stay on top of today’s fashion looks, however you choose to express them.
This warm hue is a welcome addition to the autumn palette which includes oxblood, navy, and brown. This unusual color teetering somewhere between burnt orange and mustard yellow is surprisingly sophisticated and a great choice for jeans, shirts, or even coats.
Sneaker that’s a Boot
We are all in favor of versatility, especially when it means that it looks super stylish. The sneaker that’s a boot, or otherwise known as the boot that’s a sneaker, is truly the best of both worlds. It combines the comfort and culture of the sneaker with the utility of a boot, meaning you get something higher, with a thicker heel, and sometimes even some insulation. Now there’s no need to buy hiking boots and new street kicks, you just need the one pair!
Chunky knits, shiny oversized buttons and stripes are in and here to stay this fall. Think 20,000 Leagues under the sea, Scandinavian fisherman, and the US Navy, and you’re on your way to imagining your look for this season. Bring on the golden braid detailing and you’re as good as captain. Some popular ways to wear this trend are big, chunky turtleneck sweaters, oversized double-breasted blazers, and gold detailing on jackets.
Though matte textures seemed to be on top in the last few years, shiny looks have reappeared on the runways and on the streets. From shiny tuxedos, to jackets or even shirts, don’t be afraid to shine- yes, you’ll be getting attention, but all of it will be positive. This trend is best worn with formal wear though shiny bombers are a great way to make it casual.
Heavy Dark Denim
Trade in your light chinos for heavier and darker slacks this fall. Choose dark navy and intense black jeans for crisp looks that will carry you into winter and beyond. The heavier texture, though might seem uncomfortable at first, will soon wear out to fit your lifestyle and body, resulting in the most attractive and comfortable pair of jeans you have ever owned.
Military is always popular in men’s fashion, though the interpretation of it varies from season to season. This fall we focus on the military bomber jacket. Though the traditional army green one is still a good staple to have, don’t be afraid to experiment with different textures and colors.
Though not every man likes and can identify with all of these trends, choosing a few to sport throughout the fall with keep you looking fresh and stylish, even with just a few staples like boots or heavy, dark jeans.
