Staying ahead of men’s fashion trends isn’t always simple. In an ever-changing world where celebrities set off new trends on a near-daily basis, it’s easy to get lost in the crowd and stick to your old skinny jeans and a t-shirt.
But what major style trends can we expect in men’s fashion for 2017? Below, we’ve rounded up some of the hottest statement pieces that you should consider adding to your wardrobe for the year ahead.
Wide cropped trousers
Chilled-out wide cropped trousers won’t work for every figure, but if you’re looking to stand out and make an impression, you will struggle to find a more appropriate choice of clothing. Wide cropped trousers couldn’t be further away from the spray-on skinny jeans we’re all used to wearing, but they look great and are super comfortable to boot.
After Chance the Rapper graced the Saturday Night Live stage in the USA last year wearing an overall, the fashion staple has taken over men’s mainstream fashion. When you consider the fact that wide legged jeans are in fashion lately, overalls become all the more accessible – and less of a fashion faux pas. Pair your washed overalls with a colourful graphic t-shirt and shoes, and you’ll soon be looking like Chance the Rapper yourself.
Good tailoring never goes out of fashion. From weddings and social functions to job interviews and networking, you’ll always need a well-tailored suit to ensure you look the part. With new colours, fits and styles regularly updating the classic three-piece suit, there’s no excuse not to upgrade your existing outfit this year. If you’re looking for a bespoke suit in London, consider working with a tailor such as Fielding and Nicholson.
Pharrell Williams’ pink overcoat had everybody talking in 2016, and the fashion trend is expected to hit the mainstream this year. Whether you take style tips from the Happy hitmaker, take an adventurous turn with a leopard print fur overcoat or opt for a more traditional brown or black, overcoats are on trend this year. Make sure your pair your new overcoat with stylish jeans and clean white shoes to look the part.
Unique hair colours
The idea of dyeing your hair pink and blonde may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but that didn’t stop Kanye West from giving it a go. Unique and unorthodox hair colours have been hitting the headlines for a number of years in men’s fashion, and as more become comfortable with experimenting with their locks, there’s no reason not to try a new style.
There you have it – some of the best men’s fashion trends for 2017. Whether you’re keen on staying up to date or you just want to update your style for the year ahead, following these tips should help you look the part and impress. Remember to take advantage of fashion blogs, check out the latest celebrity styles on social media and don’t be afraid of doing something different – it’s good to stand out from the crowd.
