Bold colours rule men’s fashion

Bold colours rule men’s fashion

This season, you don’t have to concern yourself with the messy business of sorting the cool from the crap – we’ve gone and done that for you. What’s left is all killer with no filler. Here are our 12 key fashion trend predictions for all the men in the audience.

Printed Shirts

This is a wild child trend. Structured shirts in dynamic prints are big news this season, in colours ranging from deep blues to golds. Wear with plain chinos or dark jeans to avoid pattern overload, and button down at the neck to give off Hawaiian beach vibes.

Long Sleeve T-Shirts

What’s not to love about fashion trends that also keeps you warm? Go for an oversized fit, and bright colours, to emanate this trend. Athleisure isn’t going anywhere this year, so logo and printed tops are big news 

Cargo Pants

Functional and hard-wearing, cargo pants are set to be a key item for the year’s wardrobe. Team with heavy boots for a job-site approved look. Worn long and loose, with a waistline that sits right on your hips, cargo pants suit any shape. Wear with a bright coloured top to look “off-duty cool” rather than “off to work”.

Bucket Hats

Prada showcased bucket hats in both their male and female launches for SS18. This accessory lends an eclectic air to a street-wear look. It also hides your hair when you can’t be bothered to do anything to it – Bonus. Wear with a full tracksuit for an interesting style that pulls the bucket hat back from “gone fishing” territory.

Nylon Tracksuit

Fashion trends come and go, but tracksuits are still the athleisure staple you have to be wearing this season. In 2018, think bright colours, exposed zips, and side stripes. Side striped tracksuits are an interesting twist on the traditional style, and add a bit of interest to your look.

Baggy Jean

This retro jeans style is back in a big way for 2018. Go full on 90s you’re your styling, pairing with layered t-shirts and white trainers. This look is functional, comfortable, and fashionable – Everything you should look for in fashion trends. Not sure this look is for you? Read our denim fit guide here to find your jeans style.


Checks are anything but boring in 2018. Forget your muted check shirt, this pattern should be bright and clashing. Checked trousers are the perfect way to let some personality shine through in your outfit. Team with a tracksuit top for street-style cool.

Dad Jacket – Balenciaga

Apparently, this look is supposed to be what VIPs wear when they’re kicking back. This look includes old-school bomber jackets and puffer jackets, but the most noteworthy style is the cagoule.

This waterproof design can actually look super stylish when worn in an oversized fit.

Matching Sets

Forget about clashing and go for the all in one look this season. Avoid looking like you’re wearing your pyjamas by wearing this look with a colour coordinated trench coat, for more grown-up vibes.

 Track Jackets

The athleisure trend isn’t going anywhere this year, so track jackets are still a key investment piece for your wardrobe. Go for a full tracksuit for chilled out days, or team your jacket with slim fit jeans for a look you can hit the town in.

Bold Colours

Add some noise to your style with pops of colour in 2018. Bold, primary colours are where it’s at, and colour blocking with clashing shades is an effective way of wearing this trend.
