Fashion week is always our go-to source of inspiration for menswear trends. Fashion Week comes to define the trends for the upcoming season and they’re your first look at what everyone else is going to be wearing within a few months. Whether it’s the street style of celebrities and influencers or what you see walking down the runway, fashion week gives us an idea of what trends are on the horizon. Give your closet an update with five trends from men’s fashion week that you’ll want to invest in for 2021.
Brands like Moncler have been dominated recent menswear trends, so it’s no surprise that puffer vests were one of the biggest trends at men’s Fashion Week. This utiliary style is easy to wear and gives you a laidback athleisure look. If you want a versatile piece, add a puffer vest in a neutral tone to your closet. You can keep it sleek with a fitted puffer or go oversized for a streetwear look.
One easy trend you can add to your closet from Men’s Fashion Week is the beanie. It’s a classic accessory that you likely already know and love. It gives you the casual off-duty look while giving you a little extra comfort and warmth during your commute or socially distanced walk. While you’re shopping around for a beanie, keep an eye out for ones that have a snug fit, as this will create a more streamline look.
After a year in lockdown, no one is ready to give up the oversized silhouettes. The same is true at Men’s Fashion Week. We saw this universally flattering sweater style everywhere from the digital runways to our favourite influencers’ Instagram feeds. You can thank Harry Styles for making striped sweaters a trend. Now that they’ve reached men’s Fashion Week, it’s the time to add one to your closet. Shop around for a striped sweater with contrasting shades to make an effortless statement with a piece you can wear with any outfit.
Blue is the standout hue in both menswear and womenswear for 2021. This colour will take you through every season with ease. It was Pantone’s colour of the year for 2020 and shows no sign of disappearing into the background. The bright blue trend is easy to jump on. You don’t have to wear the colour from head to toe. Instead you can build into your closet with separates like t-shirts or accessories like scarves and sneakers. If you want a more gender-fluid hue, keep an eye out for icy blue shades.
Menswear is becoming more open to the idea of carrying a bag. Gone are the days when ‘man bag’ was in our vocabulary. Some of the latest bag releases in menswear collections are giving fierce competition to their womenswear counterparts. The crossbody bag has been a staple in men’s streetwear fashion for several seasons now, and Fashion Week shows it’s not about to slow down. A black crossbody bag goes with everything, whether you like your bags nano size or oversize. Pick up a black crossbody to carry your daily essentials, including your hand sanitizer and back-up face masks.
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.
Before the pandemic hit, TikTok was app that few of us took seriously. In fact, most of us swore to never download it. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. With endless hours in the days that we needed to fill, TikTok became the leading social media platform by the end of 2020. While we often associate Instagram with fashion trends, TikTok is rivalling the app for its fashion crown. With its viral videos, TikTok has become a breeding ground for every type of subculture. The algorithm allows you to curate your ‘for you page’ to reflect your fashion and personality.
We all focus so much on Paris, New York, and Milan, that we often overlook the other Fashion Week events. Earlier this month, Copenhagen hosted its autumn/winter 2021, making it clear that the more established fashion capitals have some fierce competition. By moving Copenhagen Fashion Week online, it’s made it more accessible to the general public and raised awareness of some Scandi trends we want to add to our wardrobe ASAP. We’re rounding up 10 of our favorite trends from Copenhagen Fashion Week.
Fashion Week is like the holiday season for fashion followers. It’s our favorite time of the year and a staple in our calendar. While this London Fashion Week was a unique experience thanks to the pandemic, it didn’t rob us of inspiration for our spring wardrobe. Digital presentations replaced the usual runway shows and influencers took to social media to share their outfits instead of photographers catching their street style outside events.
