Because we live in a world that is filled with people that are damagingly strict about beauty standards, trends and image, it’s beneficial for us to have keen interest in the way we dress, accessorize and carry ourselves. Nobody wants to be the odd one out. No one wants to get bullied.
Besides, grooming and carrying yourself is the new sexy. No one wants to interact with the man with a bad odor, and an outdated haircut. You’re not going to meet the love of your life if you’re sporting looks from 2006, man. Therefore, we’ve compiled a guide to the latest fashion trends in menswear apparels and accessories.
We all know that pulling off a trend extremely well makes a man go from a 0 to a 100. Good for us, because while 2018 comes with a lot of climate and political change, it has also blessed us with remarkable trends in men’s apparel. Some styles every man needs to adopt into his life are:
- Upstanding Stripes
Stripes have made a major comeback in 2018, only this time they’re at 90o. You read that right. Vertical stripes in shirts and suits are menswear apparel’s go-to design now. To avoid looking like Pennywise the Clown, stick to straight and narrow single stripes. This sure is a stripy season!
We’ve all heard the saying, “When in doubt, wear denim.” Just when we thought jeans that we’re cutting off our leg circulations because of how tight they were are gone, 2018 bombarded us with circulation-friendly dad jeans. These are a more stylish, loose fit and unfussy alternative to the unisex denim we’ve been sporting all these years.
It’s time to leather up, lads! Yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you. We’ve moved on from wearing just a cool leather jacket on our shoulders to wearing full leather outfits. One thing we all know is that leather is a staple, it’s never going away. Why should it? It gives us such immense confidence and instantly turns us from a 1 to a 10.
