Men’s Spring Fashion Trends 2018

In line with my belief that fashion is a form of art (Be it, women or men) , I decided to start penning down fashion stories for men as well. This is going to be a first attempt at writing about Men fashion.

One surprising fact that I have discovered during the research for this post is that the most prominent fashion magazines and websites in India hardly have any articles on Men fashion. However, there are enough on women fashion. This disparity is not only observed in India but also in other major fashion capitals ( even though, the situation is much better in other countries) .

Without delaying, let’s get into the trends of this spring for men.

1. Pleated Trousers

Don’t judge by the name that pleats are only for women. Pleated baggy trousers are back in trend for men.

Stick to just single pleated trousers and a strict NO to multiple pleats. Keep it baggy in the bottom and slim in the top.

2. Vertical Striped Shirts/ Trousers

Vertical Stripes are everywhere this season – A Unisex Trend. They are literally present in every global fashion week.

Caution : Stick to straight and narrow vertical stripes. Avoid those wide striped shirts or trousers

3. Tonal Dressing / Coordinates

This is one more unisex trend of the season. It basically means a monochrome outfit with same coloured trouser & blazer / shirt & trouser.

Focus on the pastel shades of colours. Go for bright colours if you want to stand out.

4. Linen

Linen shirts have been in trend since long time. Adding to that trend, linen trousers made an entry this season.

5. Side Striped Trousers

One more unisex trend. Though, I am not head over heels with this trend. If you want to try something different, then this needs to be in your list.

6. Statement Socks

How many of you have seen Justin Trudeau slaying those bright pink or blood red ankle socks?? Yeah!! They are clearly in Spring trends list now.

If you are not comfortable with bright colours, try patterned socks in basic colours.

7. Track Pants

Athleisure is one more go-to trend and is completely comfortable. Pick those baggy tracks lying in your workout wear and pair those with hoodies from the similar colour palette – That’s it, you are good to go out in those tracks rather than just sticking to gym.

8. Logo T-shirts

80’s trend of logo t-shirts is back on runways and street style trends this season. This requires minimal knowledge of styling because you can just wear that t-shirt, pair it with a denim and a pair of white sneakers – you are done 😀

HUES OF WHITE

If you are one among those who categorize white shirt as a casual outfit option, then this post would definitely change your stance on that opinion.All I would like to convey here is that white shirt is versatile enough to be apt for any occasion if you style it on point.

I would be giving some styling gyaan on three basic looks which I believe would be helpful for you 🙂

The age-old classic combo of white shirt, blue denim : It looks absolutely elegant but isn’t it boring to carry the same look all the while?!! Well, you can bring a completely different perspective to the look by going for colorful juttis (Ditch those high heels, I wonder how one feels comfortable in stilettos though :/ ) , a messy updo and handmade tassel earrings.Trust me, it is going to work 🙂

Office wear : I agree that you need to be formal.Keeping that in mind, what could be done? There is a lot of scope : Tie around a beautiful neutral color tassel scarf around your neck or just tag along a grey colored kimono/linen jacket and match it with the bottom or just layer the white shirt over a plain neutral colored camisole.

Yeah, I heard you girls 🙂 The party look – Add a pop of a bright color like red or burgundy or yellow or royal blue to the outfit.If you are wondering how to do that, then the answer is accessories and makeup.Accessories could be a good pair of heels flaunting that bright color, a scarf, a pretty sling bag or clutch, statement earrings or neck piece.

Current trend of easy, breezy and sporty look flaunting those sneakers is what I have experimented with this time.It could be considered as an option for parties as well, if you are someone like me who hates dancing in uncomfortable bodycons or high heels.I choose a white on white look, paired the shirt with a pleated white skirt and a white choker, and maintained the monotony of white. However, I broke that monotony with a bright red tinge with my cap and lip color.Also, this could be your go-to summer look as well.Here goes the look 🙂
