11 Men’s Fashion Trends You Need To Know In 2021

It’s a frequent misperception that following trends religiously leads to good dressed. This, in our judgement, is not the case. Following every seasonal fad blindly is a recipe for the wrong style. Not to mention a quick way to go bankrupt.

The ability to correctly distinguish between passing fads and future classics is crucial to maintaining your sartorial self-respect. And, to help you get started, we’ve put up a carefully curated list of menswear trends worth adopting into your wardrobe this year.

These are the men’s fashion trends to watch in 2021, from the return of florals to the continuous widening of shapes.

Florals

One of the overriding men’s fashion trends of the last five years has been a return to the 1970s, and it shows no signs of slowing down in 2021.  It takes the form of floral designs a la Grandma’s curtains for the spring/summer season, which is a lot more wearable than it sounds.

From Tom Ford to Burberry, vivid florals have appeared on shorts, vacation shirts, and tailoring, among other things. However, we recommend sticking to one striking piece in each outfit and, as always, keeping the rest of your ensemble simple and understated.

Bermuda Shorts

Short shorts aren’t everyone’s cup of tea. D&G, Gucci, and a slew of other high-fashion houses don’t fall into this category. But, if their SS21 performances provide any indication, they won’t be. Instead, longer, wider shorts will come back this season, echoing a broader change that has been occurring across many sectors of menswear for some time.

Making sure you get the length just perfect is the key to nailing it. Aim for a few inches above the kneecap, and choose fitted styles that can be easily combined with casual and fancier pieces. Avail the best Bermuda Shorts at the lowest price by using a price drop alert notification like Wispri.

Relaxed Tailoring

As the decade progresses, airy silhouettes will continue to outnumber slim, form-fitting designs. It’s a comeback of men’s fashion trends in the 1980s and 1990s that’s been on the rise for a while, and while it’s not for everyone, it can look beautiful when done right.

If you’re thinking about taking a stroll on the wild side, our first piece of advice is to pay a visit to your local tailor. Relaxed cuts can still be attractive, but only if they are well-fitting.

More Gorpcore

A few years ago, high fashion and the great outdoors began to flirt. They’re now shouting their love for each other from the rooftops. Gorpcore (a colloquial word for trail mix or ‘good old raisins and peanuts) was coined by fashion journalists, but whatever you choose to call it, it appears to be here to stay.

Collaborations like Palace x Arc’teryx and Gucci x The North Face have recently emerged, further reinforcing men’s fashion trends with outdoor gear. However, we recommend including the occasional outdoor-inspired piece into your clothes rather than going complete cosplay climber if you want to participate.

Vertical Stripes

There are two reasons to embrace the vertical stripe trend: first, it looks beautiful and provides a simple, sophisticated approach to experiment with prints; second, it has the added benefit of making you appear taller and slimmer by shaving a few pounds off your appearance.

Choose styles with variable width stripes for extra points. If you want to keep things simple, go to classic lines or perhaps seersucker.

Get Nautical

The sea has long been a source of inspiration for men’s fashion trends. All you have to do is look at the peacoat to see proof of this. But this year, when fisherman beanies, Breton tops, and other dock-worker mainstays make their way into mainstream men’s fashion trends, it’ll take it to the next level.

It’s a workwear subgenre that has already been dubbed “shipster” by fashion editors. While you may not want to wear it from head to toe, including a few essential pieces in your wardrobe is a beautiful way to keep it current.

Mid-Wash Denim

Denim, whether dark or raw, is a true menswear classic. When the weather gets heated, though, it’s no longer practical.

Fortunately, there is a remedy to the dilemma this season. It’s a few shades lighter, more laid-back, and pairs well with practically anything. Mid-wash denim was seen all over the male runways this season, and it appears to be here to stay.

Warm-Weather Layering

While layering when the sun is shining may not seem like the most practical option, it is still possible if done correctly. For example, lightweight jackets and overshirts worn over basic tees, polos, or summer-ready shirts can take the place of heavy outerwear. This way, if you get too hot, you can take them off. Then tie them around your waist, shoulders, or torso to keep the decorative element while avoiding the extra warmth.

Camp Collar Shirts

For some, classic collar short-sleeve shirts have unwelcomed connotations of “lads down the bar.” This airy summer option is a chic way to get around it. Camp collar shirts have been popular for some years, so you can be sure they aren’t just a fad.

The flat, lapel-style collar lends a modest focal point to an otherwise uninteresting ensemble, creating a subtle focal point to bring a look together. Perfect for a quick lunch at a coastal restaurant when paired with fitted swim shorts. Look for long-sleeved versions this year to provide a twist to the ordinary.

Banishing Bare Ankles

Old habits die hard, but if your ankles are still exposed, now is your last chance to cover them up. Bare ankles were a big trend in the 2010s, but they’re starting to appear a little old-fashioned now that we’re a year into the 2020s.

If you must flaunt your lower legs while wearing trousers, we recommend doing so just during the summer. On a chilly winter day, nothing appears more out of place than a pair of exposed ankles peeking out from beneath the cuffs of a pair of jeans. There are some excellent socks available. Why not get a pair for yourself?

All White

One of the most popular men’s fashion trends this summer is a difficult one to pull off. But, if you get it right, you’ll be the king of the Riviera; if you get it wrong, you’ll be Andy Murray on match day.

Going all white, despite the risks, is one of the best men’s fashion trends you can make. It’s also a sure-fire way to stay cool while it’s hot outside. A fresh white T-shirt looks great with matching chino shorts and tone leather sneakers. If it all seems a little too much, throw on a navy overshirt to balance things off.
