Winter is almost here, and it’s time for men to brush up on ten leading menswear trends that are going to be all the rage this season. The Fall/Winter 2017-18 shows have predicted what’s going to be fashionable and what should leave your closet. Designers are going back to basics, and some exciting new trends have shown up on the runway. So, here is the ultimate guide to the winter menswear trends you should look out for. From cut, fit, colour and fabric here are all you need to know to stay ahead of the crowd this winter.
Surprisingly, corduroy is back in a big way this season whether it’s Fendi, Prada, Hermes or Armani. Get ready for some 70s nostalgia, and if you didn’t live through it the first time, you could experience the glory decade looking super stylish. Whether it’s a slim cut cord suit or relaxed trousers, there has to be some corduroy in your wardrobe. You can even try to pair it up with a leather jacket for a little rock-n-roll remix. If you want to play it cool, pair a corduroy jacket or slack with something muted or monotone.
There has been some major quilting on the runway this year. While it has always been a favourite for Ralph Lauren, we got to see more quilted styles from labels like Dries Van Noten, Craig Green and ErmenegildoZegna. Quilted bombers, quilted moto jackets and even blazers are going to be all the rage this season. Stock up on a quilted padded bomber jacket from Calvin Klein to look stylish and stay warm.
While foliage is scarce these days, the runways from London, Paris and Milan fashion weeks have made up more than enough for the lack of greenery. A vibrant mossy olive green is going to be everywhere this season. Labels like E Tautz, Missoni, Valentino and Fendi just couldn’t get enough of it. It showed up on everything from suits to streetwear, and this is a trend that you just can’t ignore. The neutral tones are so easy to pull off, and moss green is a colour that can complement absolutely any complexion.
A bright sunrise orange is a menswear trend this winter, although it is probably not meant for the faint-hearted. The hip psychedelic tones are going to set streetwear on fire, and everyone from Dior to Givenchy thinks so. Use a bright pop of orange in your t-shirt or knitted wear to pull off this runway trend in style.
Nothing can beat silk when it comes to class and elegance and designers have created some very tasteful work this season. Silk shirts have been shown by Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Katie Eary and others. While silk shirts might sound tacky, they can become your new favourite party shirt if styled carefully. Wear a silk shirt with neutrals to avoid any clashing from happening or wear it unbuttoned over a solid tee to look extremely trendy.
Football fan scarves are the accessory of the season. Greenlighted by Vetements and Gosha Rubchinskiy, football scarves are a must-have in your wardrobe this winter and especially if you’re a fan. Gosha Rubchinskiy has even launched a long-term collab with Adidas Football with a logo fan scarf.
If you’re someone who’s wary of fashion trends because comfort comes first, then roll necks are perfect for you. Stay snug and warm while looking absolutely fashion forward with a big dramatic roll neck. It has been one of the most noticeable menswear trends this season with everyone from Louis Vuitton, Versace, Agi and Sam, Casely-Hayford and Dries Van Noten featuring it.
Leather is back with a bang, and it’s time to act on your rock n roll fantasies. Whether its sporty, retro or pop-art leather, trousers were all over the runway this season with Hermes, Prada and Maison Margiela. Put on some leather pants this winter and look all around irresistible.
Camel is a colour that designers have sworn for the season. We saw a whole lot of all camel outfits coming from MSGM, ErmenegildoZegna, Berluti, Ami and Canali. Camel suits look super classy, and this is a must-have for your winter wardrobe. The more skilled stylists should try mixing shades and patterns for maximum impact. Those who might be a little afraid to go all camel, why not try to break up the monotony with a little pop of cream or navy.
This has to be the coolest trend from this year’s runway. Valentino, Raf Simons, Dior Homme and Fendi have emphasised colourful slogans while sewing them directly into the knitwear. The slogan itself makes a bold statement so you should try to keep everything else subtle. Dealvoucherz.com
