For this sixth post about men’s style I decided to talk about some trends for next spring. Three good ones, three ugly ones and one that can be tricky but also challenging.
The Good Trends
Trench coat. I know, it may seem impractical and, with the crazy weather, chances are you may wear a trench coat only a few times, but it’s a beautiful piece of clothing, it immediately elevates a casual/sporty look and women with good taste find it classy. If a full length trench is not for you, try a shorter version.
Blue jeans. In classic blue hue. Possibly straight and not skinny. And that don’t expose your ankles. A breath of fresh air.
Clashing colors. Don’t be afraid to embrace some bold colors and patterns. Many people think colors and patterns are not manly but it’s not true. It’s a cliché.
Think about these three trends together: blue jeans + a sweater/a shirt in clashing colors + classic blue jeans (+ good shoes) = perfection.
The tricky but challenging trend
Cowboy boots. With the right attitude and the right styling they look great. But a fashion mess is around the corner, and if you don’t feel comfortable wearing them you will look ridiculous.
Robert Redford with not completely picture cowboy boots.
These boots by Society are Chelsea boots with some “cowboy” vibes. I love the words printed on the elastic band.
The ugly trends
I usually ignore trends I dislike, but once in a while I make an exception. Please don’t even consider these three items.
Bucket hats. Seriously, not even Leonardo DiCaprio looks good with a bucket hat. Even when he’s surrounded by 20some lingerie models.
Full leather outfits. They may good look on the runway, but many looks do and then turn out to be awful/ridiculous/impractical in real life. Plus, leather pants make you sweat a lot and, unless you wear clothes once then throw them away or return like influencers and celebrities do, keep things simple and stylish with a leather jacket.
Cycling sunglasses. Unless you’re a cyclist and you actually need practical (but ugly) sunglasses. With all the beautiful sunnies available, why going for unflattering ones?
And since I love quotes…
So true. I know people who keep saying they are not interested in fashion, they don’t follow trends, they’re not into this or that, but at the end of the day they are only annoying. And they also seem insecure.
