Fashion changes frequently, but you can get an idea for where it’s going when you keep up with the trends and check out what’s being worn at the latest fashion shows. We’ve done just that to find the men’s fashion trends that are going to be big in 2017.
1. Bold Choices
Over the last several years, men have been taking more and more risks with their fashion choices, and that trend will continue into 2017. If you want to stand out, you’ll need to be bold. One option for the daring man is an exotic overcoat with a unique color scheme or pattern. The key is that you stick to one daring piece for your outfit. When you have one, it stands out and looks cool. Combining several starts to look silly and makes you look desperate for attention.
2. Looser Fits
While loose clothing hasn’t always had a great reputation, men are starting to come around and choose more relaxed fits. Both shirts and pants are getting wider, and tailors are designing softer pieces. For more casual wear, looser fits are a stylish, comfortable option.
3. Shades of Pink
They say it takes a real man to wear pink, and the color has started to take off in men’s fashion. One shade that is becoming particularly popular is a dustier rose pink, which makes for a striking color on a suit. If you don’t want to commit to a pink suit, a subtler option is a pink crew-neck t-shirt or sweater.
4. V-Neck Sweaters
Speaking of sweaters, V-neck sweaters have gone in and out of style over the years, but they’re a popular choice now. However, it can’t be just any old V-neck. Again, bold is the way to go, so look for one with a sharp, angular V that cuts a bit lower than usual.
By far the most popular footwear choice in 2016, sneakers are still at the top in terms of men’s footwear. They’re versatile, comfortable and you can get them in all kinds of patterns, from simpler minimalist styles to brighter, more extravagant designs.
Big beards had their moment in the spotlight, but now the trend is shifting back to neatly trimmed stubble. It’s a classic look with a bit of an edge, so it tends to always be in style, but that’s true even more-so than usual in 2017.
There are all kinds of trends going on in men’s fashion, so what’s most important is finding the ones that work for you. Based on what we’ve seen so far, 2017 is looking like a good time to take risks and do something different with your style.
