For every man who likes to wear what’s in, there are ten who like to play it safe and repeat tried and tested looks. Therefore, trend reports always carry the risk of being totally ignored or being seen as amusing articles that needn’t be taken seriously. However, some of the most popular trends channelled through the Autumn/Winter collections from around the world for 2019 are extremely wearable. Here we give you six that any man can pull off:
1) Men in black
Tailored suits are appealing on their own but the complete Men In Black look that was channelled on the ramps of Saint Laurent, Celine, and Thom Browne is an easy trend to adopt. Think tailored black suit with a white shirt and a skinny black tie. So simple, and yet so easy to replicate. If you’re lean, then this ensemble will look especially flattering on you.
2) Oversized suits
On the other end of the spectrum, we have the oversized suit trend that was showcased on the ramps of Marni, Prada and Fendi. This is in keeping with the boxy/oversized trend that has been going strong for a while now. The best part is that you can layer oversized suit jackets over hoodies to take it to streetstyle territory.
One of the most endearing trends this season is the embracing of pink with abandon as shown by designers like Berluti, Boss and Kenzo, to name a few. And it’s not a particular shade of pink, it’s all of it – light pink, blush, salmon, magenta, neon, watermelon, rose, etc. That being said, magenta is the hottest pink of the lot. When it comes to incorporating it into your looks, we’re not talking about using pink only as an accent color; instead it’s tip to toe pink for the boldest trendsetters. If that feels too loud for your taste, just add a dash of pink in the form of a pink tie, pink shirt, socks, or pocket square.
Take a break from all those dark colors in your autumn/winter wardrobe, and go for a tip to toe neutral look. Fenid, Burberry, Ami and Louis Vuitton were some of the designers that put this look in their collections – think entire ensembles including accessories in a single shade, be it beige, off white or grey. Choose camel, a sophisticated grown-up color, that’ll suit most skin tones, especially Indian skin tones. Accessorise a camel suit and shirt combo with camel accessories, or accent it with dark brown leather shoes and bags.
5) Vintage florals
Florals are guaranteed to come every season, though in different avatars. This season, it’s all about vintage florals, as showcased by Vetements, Loewe and Gucci menswear collections. Think retro florals in muted or bright colors. Add floral print shirts to your wardrobe this fall. Pair it with plaid trousers or layer it under chunky cardigans to really pay homage to this trend.
6) Parkas over suits
Take a page from Berluti, Givenchy and Dunhill, and layer your suit with a parka instead of an overcoat, when the weather gets cold. At once utilitarian and stylish, this looks especially striking if you pair a sombre suit with a vibrant parka. For those who want to play it safe, stick to a black or navy parkas.
