Do you remember those times, 10 or 20 years ago, when fashion was a preferred topic only by women and men were merely interested in flipping through the pages of fashion magazines? Well, here we are in 2019, and men’s fashion is equally exciting as female’s!
Nowadays, men are paying more attention to how they dress and they’re actively following new trends every season. This lead to a giant boom of men’s fashion all around the world. If you’re one of these men who like to make sure their appearance is always flawless, we’ve compiled useful information and formed a style guide for you. Make sure you upgrade your fashion game with it so you can play with creativity!
1. Dressing Up is a Skill
Before we dive into all of these trends that are covered in almost any magazine for men, you will need to understand that dressing up is so much more than just combining two or three clothing items, it’s actually a skill that can easily be developed. If you don’t consider yourself a gifted person when it comes to fashion, don’t give up just yet!
If you’re looking at some of your fashion icons, don’t think for a second their start was fabulous. We all have to learn when it comes to fashion. Not to mention that some things that are a big hit right now simply might not suit you. On the other hand, a last year’s trend that might be almost forgotten but if it looks good on you, keep rocking it on!
2. Vertical Stripes
One of the trends you will see on a sewing mannequin is definitely vertical stripes! It’s such a casual way to spark up any of your outfits and you can even wear it to work or on weekends. Verticals stripes look great and simple, yet your outfit will never look boring with it. If you’re brave enough, you can experiment with other prints as well. You might add a scarf in different colours and design or wear statement socks that will match your blouse. The great thing about vertical stripes is that it makes you appear taller and slimmer at the same time.
3. Jeans are Forever
If you’re truly new to this fashion game, you might feel discouraged to start playing with different designs and colours immediately and that’s perfectly fine. Start with purchasing items that make you feel comfortable and also look good on you. Your safest choice will always be a pair of jeans which can be paired with literally anything. If you would like to follow a bit of this year’s trend, you should buy light blue ones as they are huge on the streets! Every man is already enjoying its pair and is mixing it up with favourite t-shirts and there’s no reason for you to avoid it.
4. All White
White is the perfect summer colour as it shows your lightly tanned skin. If you’re planning on going to a sunset beach party or a casual dinner in the restaurant with your friends, choosing all white will not just make you look really good but will also save a lot of your time. Find the perfect fit of white jeans or shorts and a t-shirt of any breathable fabric, and you won’t go wrong with it! If you want to make your outfit a bit more interesting, check out white espadrilles which are huge this year as well. It will go perfectly with long or short pants, regardless of the design.
5. Sports Apparel
Let’s be honest, how happy are you that sports outfits are a major fashion trend right now?
Finally, you can walk all day long in your favourite sweatsuit without worrying you look like you didn’t have the will to put on something nicer. Everything that those big sports brands are selling us for years and years has finally paid off! As you probably have already sports clothing items in your wardrobe, you will be happy to hear that you can either wear an all sports look or combine some items with more casual ones. For instance, why not wear those light-washed jeans you’ve just bought and pair it with a hoodie and your favourite sneakers?
6. Shorts and Long Sleeves
Okay, maybe you’ve been wearing these already but this year, any colour shorts you might have at home with a long sleeve shirt or a blouse will turn you into a fashion icon! Your summer days and nights can be perfect with this light and simple combination and you can even have a t-shirt under it if the temperatures get too hot. You can combine another two trends with this one: white shorts and vertical stripes blouse with long sleeves. Of course, play with colours and designs as much as you want to. Don’t forget, it’s not fashioned if you’re not having fun!
