Men's fashion trends for 2021

As the year has barely begun, we're already wondering what 2021 will be like in terms of style. The exercise may seem perilous, but it is not so much. Of course, it is based on what worked last year and on what was rejected, and therefore includes a part of interpretation. But at the same time, the probability of not being wrong is higher than a game of roulette because the collections are known and produced a year in advance.

Before we start, it is important to remember that we often confuse dressing well with dressing according to the latest trends. If the changing side of fashion allows you to renew yourself a little, you should not abandon your entire wardrobe every season. This would make you a person without a style of your own, and it would also hurt your bank account.

The key to a successful style that doesn't gather dust is the ability to pick up a new trend every now and then to slightly evolve your look. To give you an idea of what might interest you this year, here are my predictions on what will be trending. All you have to do now is choose what will interest you.

Men's Trends Spring - Summer 2021
Floral prints
The return to 1970's prints has been a strong feature of the last five years. This trend will continue this season, with prints of rather large size.

If we now see these patterns on pants, shorts, shirts and jackets, better to keep it simple and wear only one floral garment. This way you avoid extravagance and still show off your style.

Bermuda shorts (slightly) loose
Of course, there is no question of wearing velvet pants or thick jeans in summer. But there are still several options, such as linen pants or Bermuda shorts. The latter, precisely, should be very present this summer.

Specifically, we will see the appearance of Bermuda shorts a little longer and a little wider than the past years. This cut is in line with the current fashion of clothing a little wider.

To wear a pair of Bermuda shorts rather loose, the key is to choose the right length. Specifically, it should fall 5 to 7 cm above the knee. For the style, aim for sober models that could be associated with both casual and dressy pieces.

The casual suit
As we move into 2021, more relaxed silhouettes will continue to take precedence over slim, close-fitting cuts. These slightly wider garments are actually a revival of the 1980s and 1990s style.

Slightly baggy cuts, especially for suits, can be both stylish and risky. A badly cut suit will quickly give the impression that you are swimming in it. To take no chances, make an appointment with your tailor. And if you're looking for one, drop me a line in the comments!

The breakthrough of outdoor
Outdoor (i.e. outdoor clothing) has been rubbing shoulders with haute couture for the past few years, so much so that you can't see a fashion show without it. And like all the trends of haute-couture, this fashion is then declined in the ready-to-wear. Recently, we have seen for example collaborations between Palace and Arc-teryx or Gucci and The North Face.

We see today many collections including technical clothing, and this trend will continue this summer.

Vertical stripes
Vertical stripes have at least two qualities: first, they are an easy way to try out patterns with a simple and elegant result. But they also allow you to slim down and enlarge your figure for those who want to hide a few pounds.

For a more advanced effect, you can choose a fabric with bands of different sizes.

Jeans are still allowed in the fall, early and late summer. That is, when the temperature does not exceed 22-23 degrees. If dark or raw jeans are among the great classics of the male dressing room, they are not ideal when the temperature rises a little.
In this case, it is better to turn to shades a little lighter. And this year, it is not the light jeans that will be in fashion but the mid-washed.

The Cuban collar
We've been talking about it for a few years now, and the trend is confirmed. Cuban collars, recognizable by their rounded and relaxed shape, are making a comeback this year.
They bring a touch of nonchalance while allowing the wearing of a shirt and will associate very well with smarts shorts.
