The Best Menswear Trends for 2020
As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time to look forward to a new year of fashion trends and styles, as another 12 months of seasonal fashion emerges. When it comes to menswear, many trends seem to transcend the years, remaining popular through more than one season.
From men’s winter coats that seemingly take you from autumn to spring thanks to the British weather, to popular prints and patterns that remain prevalent throughout the year, here are some of the best menswear trends you’ll probably see in 2020.
Despite the huge influx of streetwear over the last few years, smart menswear is still very popular. Due to that, there has been a pattern of both streetwear and smart styles coming together in one look. Think parka coats worn over suits; a subtle nod to streetwear without foregoing a smart appearance.
The best thing about this trend? You probably already have all the pieces, you just need to combine them differently to achieve the look. So, on your next commute to work, consider switching up your smart wool coat for something a little edgier.
Co-ords have been a popular choice in women’s fashion for some time and it’s now beginning to enter the world of menswear. Perfect for the spring and summer months, patterned co-ords for men are becoming more widespread.
Short sleeve shirts with matching shorts will likely become a holiday staple for SS20, offering an alternative to the usual summer styles. This is a trend you can replicate throughout a number of styles, from the traditional tracksuit to retro double denim.
Throughout 2019 the utilitarian trend was seen across both men’s and women’s clothing. In 2020, this is set to stay through multiple pockets, zip detailing and khaki. What’s more, 90s style cargo trousers are predicted to be a big thing next year, with drawstring waists and earthy tones.
Whether it’s for work or leisure, utility style clothing will be seen everywhere throughout the seasons next year.
The beauty of the British weather is that many styles can work across different seasons, due to the dull weather. With this in mind, this next trend will be favourable whether it’s spring or winter. Quilting breathes new life into padded designs, including your favourite streetwear styles such as puffer coats and gilets.
Quilting works with many different colours and styles to create your own unique look; glossy blue, bold red and shiny black are all best-selling designs for quilted jackets.
Knitwear can be reinvented throughout the months, whether it’s chunky knits through the winter or lightweight jumpers in the spring. In 2020, the streetwear edge will appear again through distressed knitwear styles that add a unique element to your look.
Whether it’s ripped patches, unwoven yarn or frayed edges, the distressed can be made as extreme or subtle as you like. Consider layering simple t-shirts under extreme knitwear, or you may end up feeling the chill either way!
