You might be working from home right now and staying in rather than enjoying fashionable parties, dates, or events. However, this doesn’t mean you have to let your style instincts slide.
If you want to stay up on the latest looks and feel cool, no matter how locked down the world may be, it pays to keep an eye on this year’s key fashion trends for men.
If you still don’t own any clothing in a shade of pink, now is the time to try something new. This pretty color is one of the key trends for summer, in all tones, from delicate pastels and classic pinks through to neon, look-at-me hues.
The benefit of this color is that you’ll find a shade to work for you, no matter your skin tone or age. You could try out a salmon linen shirt for a casual day out, a pale pink business shirt under your suit, or some bold magenta- or fuchsia-strong board shorts to dip your toe in these trendy waters. Alternatively, go all out with an entire suit or another ensemble in a shade of pink.
You might not be able to travel at the moment due to the coronavirus lockdowns, but you can still take yourself off to the tropics by getting on the latest trend for vibrant shirts. Think that “tropicool” vibe sported by young Leonardo DiCaprio in Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 Romeo + Juliet film, and you’ll be on point.
These bright patterns are filled with beaches, islands, flowers, gardens, and abstract details, as well as an explosion of color. You’ll find numerous styles available, so all you have to do is pick your preferred option, mix up a cocktail with an umbrella in it, and you’ll feel like you’re vacationing at home in no time.
An easy trend to get on board with this year is polo shirts. They’ve been around for a long time but are really coming into their own in 2020, after having been seen on many catwalks in the past six to 12 months. Comfortable and suitable for many climates and occasions, versatile polos will take you from day to night and help you amp up your style at casual events.
With their collars, buttons at the neck, and breathable, woven fabrics, fashionable polo shirts for men are a clothing item you need in your wardrobe. Buy them in pastel or bold, bright shades, and in traditional plain designs or newer, patterned options.
When it comes to practical trends, it’s hard to go past the latest fashion focus that sees plentiful pockets added to clothing of all types. If you hate having to carry a bag and want to be able to keep all your gear, including earphones, smartphone, wallet, keys, etc. on your person, you’re sure to love this current movement. Many fashion houses have created jackets with multiple pockets, but we’ve also seen the safari-utility style crop up in pants, shirts, shorts, and vests.
Have you always longed to echo the stylings of James Dean, Mick Jagger, or Marlon Brando, but haven’t felt you have enough “cred” for the look? If so, now’s your chance to channel your inner rocker with outer swag. Biker jackets are a big trend for 2020 and have hit many fashion runways over the last few months. Go for the classic look, or add some fringe or a sleeveless cut for a fresh little twist.
When you hear the phrase “double denim” you might get flashbacks to that 2001 outfit Justin Timberlake wore to the American Music Awards. Outfitted in head-to-toe denim and attending with his date, Britney Spears, who also wore all-out denim, the look was memorable yet…not the best!
Today, though, while double denim still isn’t the easiest trend to pull off, it has made a big comeback and can look cool and sophisticated when done right. Tackle this trend by either breaking up the denim-on-denim look of similar washes with a white or gray tee or sweatshirt or opt for denim in visibly different shades.
For instance, wear a blue denim jacket with a crisp white shirt and blue denim straight-cut jeans, or pair some black, tailored jeans with a blue denim shirt or vice versa.
Spice up your home-time right now with some of the above looks, and you’ll know you still look fashionable when videoconferencing with colleagues and clients. Plus, you’ll also have no excuses to sit around in your PJs all day!
