Seasons come and go, so do trends. Following them blindly may not be your style, but let’s admit, indulging them every now and then can be fun. Dressing up is a way of self-expression. The way you dress gives an insight into your passions, your pet peeves amongst other things. It’s more than just vanity. It is a creative outlet, an art even and like every artist you need tools, a basic foundation to create a unique piece of art and that’s exactly what trends are. They give you an inkling as to what’s hot. What makes it hotter is your own unique touch. So let’s equip you with some basics, that you can build on.
These are not the same as the ones sported by your uncles on a vacation. They are sleeker, sexier versions of the once-frumpy fanny packs. They were big last year, and they continue to stay so by the grace of Dior, Louis Vuitton and other major fashion houses. They come in all the shapes and sizes imaginable. Here are some prime examples.
The Shirt Jacket
Simply put, cut like a jacket, feels like a shirt. This shirt-jacket hybrid is perfect for the summers, where you want to look sharp, without having a heat stroke. Made from light-weight fabrics, this outer layer sharpens the outfit while letting you breathe.
Statement Puffer Jackets
This trend is favourable to the lads living in the colder parts of the country; statement puffers are big this season. Crayon colours, tailored fits, and fun prints. What’s more? They now come in non-synthetic fabrics as well. This year puffers everything but staid and boring!
Transitioning from the melancholy of winter to the freshness of spring, shirts are colourful and full of life. Loud vibrant prints in poppy colours are big this season. Wear them in the loose over-sized cut for that retro hipster vibe!
Wide Legged Pants
While the skinny still retains its ‘IN’ status, there has also been a subtle shift towards more relaxed styles. Men are giving wide legged pants a go in breathable fabrics such as cotton, linen, bamboo etc. This trend complements the relaxed vibe of spring and how!
