Fashion trends, in general, have evolved over the years which mostly rely on style and comfort. It is self-expression of thoughts, ideas, and preferences that move from generation to generation.
The revival of fashion is quite prominent in menswear that can be seen in the trend reports of London, Paris, Milan, and New York. Last year was all about 90’s fashion, and comfort was the key goal for all the designers and brands. Fancy PJs and long comfy outfits were mainstream since we all were working from home in the initial days of the pandemic.
But it is changing slowly.
Life is getting back to normal again after Covid-19. The fashion industry is all set to rock men in 2022 with some amazing styles and trends.
Here are the top upcoming fashion trends for men in 2022:
1. Double Denim
You can never go wrong with denim. It is the safest and reliable option in your closet. A lot of designers have experimented with this particular material and now they are encouraged to wear denim over denim.
The designers Benjamin Huseby and Serhat Isik from GmbH have worked hard and finally, they came up with the idea of off-shoulder denims for men. This is quite new and appealing to a lot of fashion lovers.
The classic and elegant pieces are designed with the diagonal cut with full sleeves and paired with loose ripped denim jeans. The idea was to give a structure to the upper body and the deep cut gives some room for a statement piece around the neck. This trend can also be seen with the light-colored denim jackets and jeans with a white shirt inside.
2. Head-To-Toe Pink
The softer colors, particularly pink, are often associated with women. Breaking the gender stereotypes, the designers are now more focused on the brighter colors for men. Head-to-toe pink for men is new and already quite popular in the fashion market.
Men of all ages and skin colors are embracing this color like a pro. The jackets are paired with hot pink pants and a tie. Fabric belts are also in fashion these days which are loosely tied on the waistline.
To give a completely monochromatic look, the outfit can go with nice hot pink boots and some accessories.
3. Couture Dressing Gowns
Turning the classy couture gowns to fancy-looking bathrobe gowns is the talk of the town these days. Louis Vuitton and Fendi first came up with this idea and introduced a number of heavy and mid to full-length couture gowns.
The gowns are stitched with internal padding to survive the cold winds during extreme winter so it can actually be used in real lives rather than just on the ramps during fashion weeks.
The gowns come in a wide variety of colors and textures. The plain ones are usually light in color, like the traditional bathrobes while others have some pattern on them and are usually in darker tones.
4. Sandal Statement
Comfort is something that cannot be compromised when it comes to footwear. Sandals for men have come back in the market and have taken the place of big fancy boots and leather shoes.
Aesthetic designs with vibrant colors can give your shoe closet some retro feels. Slide-in slippers and flip-flops are all you want for the next summer of 2022.
5. Neon Craze
Virgil Abloh’s Louis Vuitton has already introduced a variety of neon range for the upcoming year. The neon article is paired with bright rainbow-colored hats and caps as a statement piece.
Full sleeve leather jacket with a loose-fitted pants looks quite trendy and cool at first sight. Men are willing to experiment with different neon highlights and to carry such a look will definitely boost the overall confidence.
Cross bags with the same texture with some silver oxidized accessories can add value to the overall outfit. Other than that, the neon range in knitted jumpers and raincoats can also be considered.
6. Mini Bag
There is rarely any outfit which is complete without a bag. Not only women but now men are also looking for mini-bags which they can carry and flaunt with their outfits.
These bags are designed to carry small but important stuff like credit cards, keys, or smartphones. These are travel-friendly and can be styled in numerous ways. You can wear it around your neck, on your shoulder with the strap or simply carry it in your hands as they are super lightweight.
Mini-bags come in a formal as well as an informal range so you can choose accordingly as per your event. Colors of these bags do not have to be the same as your outfit, you can always mix and match the shades.
7. Turtle Neck
Yes, you heard it right. Turtle necks are back in fashion. We all have worn turtle necks at some point in our lives, mostly childhood. Designers made a deliberate choice of making turtle necks a statement piece this time.
You can add two to three layers with the turtle neck depending upon the weather conditions you are living in. Wear it underneath your summer outfits to give a fresh look overall. Oversized turtle necks are quite trendy if paired with fitted jackets or cardigans.
Turtle necks are the anti-cold piece which you can keep for years and even pass on to the next generation. Style it with your favorite jewelry item like a big neckpiece or silver chains.
8. Geometric Knitwear
The designers of all renowned brands like Dior, Prada, and Versace are experimenting a lot with geometric patterns for men. Earlier, this type of pattern was only designed for women but now trends have changed.
The oversized silhouette of geometric knitwear looks classy and designed to give more dimension to the upper body. It can be paired with plain, shimmery, or textured pants. Since it is oversized, it is better to go for some skinny bottoms with a pair of long boots or leather shoes.
Fashion allows you to be independent in your thoughts and gives you the opportunity to embrace yourself. It does not just deal in clothing or footwear but it includes the accessories you carry.
Choose what works for you and follow the trend that gives you the ultimate happiness and comfort you want in your life.
