As summer slowly starts to fade away, there’s only one thing on people’s minds when it comes to fashion – the AW18 trends. The season will soon be here, so if you want to know what trends and styles you should be looking out for this season, here are some of the biggest men’s fashion trends that are set to take over AW18.
The 90s Are Back
The 90s trend has been floating around for a while, steadily gaining momentum in the fashion world. This autumn is set to see the biggest influx of 90s fashion, particularly in menswear. We’re talking shell suits, full tracksuits, matching Muscle Fit Hoodie from brands like Vypex Apparel, bucket hats and oversized trainers. Think Noel Gallagher at Glastonbury, but for the whole season.
Ready, Set, Hike
When the AW18 shows began back in January, there was a huge spike in the amount of hiking-style fashion that was on show. From lace-up walking boots to thick jackets, get ready to see a lot of people walking around looking like they’re about to climb Snowdonia. If you’re looking to invest in the trend, a pair of quality hiking boots are the place to start. Not only will they add style to your outfit, but when the cold rain starts your feet will be nice and dry!
It’s All About Checks
Over the years, check has dipped in and out, never really finding its place in the fashion stakes. This year, however, check is well and truly back. And the more clashing, the better. If you’re brave enough, an oversized check jacket will look great over the top of a plain outfit. If you want to tone it down a little or add the trend into your everyday wardrobe, then you can’t go wrong with a checked fisherman shirt with a pair of dark chinos.
Dropped Shoulder Printed T-Shirts
Printed t-shirts are a big part of the streetwear and athleisure trend. No collection is complete without a printed t-shirt or two from your favourite brand. This autumn, that trend is set to stay but just in a slightly more relaxed style.
Dropped shoulder tees give the wearer a more relaxed, streetwise look. For a true streetwear style, choose t-shirts in a cotton jersey material – the heavier material will naturally pull the shoulders down slightly. The majority of t-shirts that currently use the dropped shoulder trend come from sportswear brands, so look out for designers including Dior and Sunnei to release their collections, inevitably sparking the spread into high street stores.
