2020 has been one serious style curveball. We’ve all had to rethink our wardrobes this year. But when it comes to menswear trends for autumn/winter, well, you’ve still got options.
If your wardrobe is in dire need of an update, here’s a little heads-up… our Black Friday deals are on the horizon, and we’ve got all the trends you should consider buying. Casual wear has upped its game in a big way, layering has never looked better and utility details are the ones to watch. Read on for our pick of the trends to buy when the Cyber Week sale kicks off (or sooner if you can’t wait that long).
Trending now: loungewear
Shorter, colder days signal that it’s time to get your loungewear look wrapped up. Tracksuits and matching leisure wear sets have become an everyday uniform for comfort. We know, we’ve been a bit too familar with our sofa lately too. But, elevated details and fabrics have taken lounge-worthy looks to a new level. Basics just aren’t so basic any more. Check out the latest drop from the MB Collection too. You’ll find logos, prints and design details that stand out for a fresh take on this laid-back look.
This season, there’s really no rule book where layering in concerned. Denim jackets under a parka, bomber jackets with tailored coats, a puffer coat thrown over knits and gilets… we’re here for it all. This trend leaves room to get a bit creative (while staying warm, of course) and it’s the ideal way to mix up your look. Want to take things up an extra notch? Keep it tonal, choosing winter whites, golds or down-to-earth neutrals worn top-to-toe.
Business or leisure?
If your ‘new normal’ involves a 9-5 spent at home and conference calls at the kitchen table then your workwear wardrobe will no doubt have taken a bit of a dressing-down lately. So invest in some smarter (but still comfy) pieces for your top half teamed with a pair of relaxed trousers or two. We’re talking smart polo shirts and new-in knitwear worn with wide-leg chinos or laid-back joggers. It’s the perfect weekday wardrobe you won’t mind being seen in, whether on screen or while or on the coffee run.
A nod to Nordic
With temperatures dropping fast, take a little inspiration from the great outdoors with this off-duty trend. Invest in clothing in heavier, textured fabrics or recycled yarns and worn-in denim. Then layer on a check shirt or two to recreate the look. Throw a parka coat over the top and you’ll be ready to brave the elements in style.
The utility trend redefined
From cargo details on knits and joggers to our ultimate new essential – the overshirt – utility pieces fuse function and fashion. Ideal when it comes to building your winter wardrobe. Cleaner, more modern pieces won’t look out of place at the office (when you get back there), while a sportier take on the trend has weekend dressing covered. Shades of khaki and stone still have their place, but it’s the little details that make the difference. Look out for zips, pockets and cuffed hems on everything from shirts and jackets to tracksuits.
