Now that the Fall Winter 2017/2018 shows are over, you have less than six months to get your wardrobe in order so read on for all the big menswear trends you absolutely have to be aware of for Fall/Winter 2017 – from corduroy trousers to camel, well, everything… – it’s time to catch up on this season of men’s trends for Autumn Winter.
Most will be pleased to see that comfort-wear was a style obsession that was all over the runway this season, as the full quilted look was in the forefront among some of Europe’s most established brands like Craig Green, Dries Van Noten and Zegna. If you only buy one piece, make it the new padded jacket which combines genius fashion craftsmanship with high-tech fabrics in wonderful new ways to create hybrid forms.
Corduroy Makes a Big Come-Back for Autumn/Winter
When it came to tailoring this autumn, corduroy found its way back and if you haven’t already, you should think about getting a full corduroy suit, slim-cut, in this season’s favorite shade of olive green, or even in the understated shade of navy.
At the very least, you should get yourself a pair of comfortable trousers to wear on casual outings. You can pair those with a leather jacket for a more ‘rock and roll’ feel.
Camel has previously been limited to outerwear, but next season we’re keeping it ‘camel’ everywhere. This autumn we’re wearing it from head to toe! For maximum impact, it’s best to mix different shades and patterns, but if you feel that this is a little bold you can break it up with some navy or cream.
High texture fabrics in deep, rich, mossy green were applied to everything from streetwear to suiting, and they proved to be the most popular shade on the catwalk – probably owing to the fact that this color works perfectly on all skin tones. Not a big fan of curdoroy? There are still plenty of other looks to try.
Men’s Trends You Need to Know for Autumn
When attempting to add some vitality to your wardrobe this autumn, you won’t be able to do much better than bright orange – according to some of the top designers. Your black, grey or navy staples could use this sunny color to turn them street-ready in an instant. Try an orange tee to give your dark knit or suit a pop of color this autumn.
More abundant and creative than ever on the catwalks were the roll necks for the coming season. They came in different thicknesses, styles and patterns, and in a rainbow of colors. If you’re not sure what to go for, try getting a roll neck in each of these two main styles – a camel, thin-gauge Merino iteration to wear under your suits, and a thick chunky-knit to pair with those corduroy trousers we just talked you into buying!
The Seventies revival continues in menswear right now with silk shirts trending hard into next season in more variety than just the pyjama shirts that we’ve grown used to – although the signature piping around the edges is still as popular as ever.
