The biggest fashion trends for men this SS19

It’s the time of year again when huge brands have just come together to showcase their new collections and style pieces during fashion weeks around the globe and eager fashionistas are keen to see what the new trends will be for next season. Although the trends seen on the catwalk may seem a bit far-fetched and unwearable to most, it is those trends that trickle down and influence the styles that we come to see on our high street. Therefore, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a style icon, you can get ahead of the curve for next season by looking at the new trends coming through during Fashion Week. To help, we’ve rounded up some of the most prominent men’s fashion trends for SS19, as seen on catwalks of recent.

Shorts

And by shorts, we mean short shorts, in all variations and colours. Many brands showcasing future trends included men’s shorts in their catwalks. From leather shorts to elasticated, sporty styles and everything in between, expect to see short shorts on the rails of fashion rails up and down the land. Keep it casual and create an effortless outfit by teaming with a slouchy knit or relaxed bomber jacket.

Shades Of Green

Sage and khaki is a colour trend predicted to be huge this spring/summer. Think earthy green colours and you’ll be on the money when it comes to fashion colour trends next season. From sage trouser suits to khaki trench coats and military style trousers. Neon colours, such as fluoro lime, were also a big hit in the trends set to be huge in SS19. However, if a relaxed, subtle look is more your thing, why not try a trend-inspired muscle fit hoodie in khaki green or if you aren’t daring enough to go full sage, add a sage green tie to a grey tailored suit.

Tailoring And Double Breasted Jackets

There was a big return in tailored clothing across London, Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. Taking inspiration from the 80s, tailoring is set to make a huge comeback in the spring and summer months of 2019. The suiting shape of next season is the double-breasted jacket. Although tailored suits are in, the tight, traditional shape of suits in years gone by are no more. Instead, opt for oversized, fluid shapes with an equally oversized double-breasted jacket which are best worn open this spring/summer ‘19. For the brave, suits worn with bare chests were also a huge trend on the catwalk.

Bucket Hats

For those of you who love to rock a bucket hat at a festival, we have some good news for you… bucket hats are making a huge come back this spring. Taking inspiration from the 90s music scene, Britpop and the Stone Roses and injecting a new, stylish twist, the traditional bucket hat has come a long way from the days of Kangol, with designer brands such as Fendi and Valentino jumping onto this trend for SS19. Many bucket hat designs seen on the catwalk adorned printed or textured designs, with patchwork also making an appearance on these classic hats.

Dad Jeans

Over the years we’ve seen an array of denim trends, from flare jeans to oversized denim jackets, embellished to ripped, and now it’s time for the dad style jean to make its way to the top of the denim trends for next season. A top tip is to opt for a medium or light-wash denim effect for a dad jean that can be perfectly teamed with a more “out-there” patterned shirt or jacket.

Autumn 2018 Fashion Trends You Can Shop Right Now

Autumn 2018 Fashion Trends You Can Shop Right Now

Even though the fashion month is in full swing, we won’t be seeing those trends ‘come to life’ for months to come, but that’s perfectly fine, as there is an entire universe of fall trends that are just getting their place in the limelight and are just waiting for us to shop and flaunt them. Given how inspired and inspirational, not to mention far from drab and inconspicuous the autumn 2018 trends are, there is no chance you won’t shine and make yourself feel just a little bit better in amazing clothing that spites the autumn, which, let’s face it, can be gloomy sometimes.

There is a plethora of trends, but we have chosen the very best for you, and the best part is, they are now all yours for the picking, so pick away and go dazzle.

You’ll Love It

Whether we’re keen on a particular pattern or not, the runways have a way of making us inclined towards it once we see it on the models. Such is the case with animal print, about which opinions have been heavily divided, but more and more people are giving in to the trend. A statement leopard print coat seems to be all the rage right now, at least according to the street style section, and we have to say, it looks pretty darn classy when worn with neutral colors. However, if this isn’t really your cup of tea, you can always embrace the trend in a more subtle manner, with a pair of leopard print ankle boots for instance, which are enough to elevate an outfit but not as risky as a larger garment, so you don’t run the risk of making a fashion mistake.

Puff It Up

One of the most romantic trends, at least in our opinion, is the puff-sleeve trend that has been spotted on a number of garments, from simple tops to dressy blouses and even amazing autumn dresses. The best part is that, since the jeans plus a dressy top trend has made a low-key comeback, you can feel free to rock your puffy blouse with a pair of mom jeans or any other jeans that do your body justice and feel amazing. The fabrics are usually soft, so you can always put a trench coat over the blouse if it gets chilly and you’ll look amazing and a little ostentatious – in the best way, when you remove the coat.

Check, Please!

The popularity of the grey oversized checked blazer, usually long enough to serve as a tuxedo dress at times, doesn’t seem to be dwindling down. If you haven’t grabbed your version, make sure to hop to it ASAP, because the pattern didn’t only mark the fall season but also has staying power, which makes it a great investment. Aside from that, with the mixture of menswear-inspired garments and those purely feminine, you’re going to need this baby to exude those mixed vibes. And if it remains as popular as it is now, it might just dethrone the mighty trench coat.

In Layering We Believe

Some are still in mourning over the end of summer, but instead of wallowing, jump on the amazing layering train, which allows you to show your mad mixing and matching skills and lets you unleash your inner fashion persona. There’s no need to say goodbye to dresses, as you can buy women’s dresses online, amazing and affordable ones at that, and practice the art of smart and chic layering. You can rock strappy dresses with shirts underneath and exude those trendy ‘90s vibes, and add a touch of athleisure with a warm and cozy pair of sneakers and cool and trendy polka dot tights. Finish off the look with a luxurious-looking long grey cardigan and bam – you’ve got yourself some layering gold.

A Complete Inevitability

After a close inspection of the street style section of every fashion capital from Oslo to New York and London, the verdict is in, and the white boot trend still remains untouchable. Whether you’ll go for knee-high or the ankle ones is irrelevant, you simply must snag a pair. They have proven not only their chicness, but also their versatility; they’ve been rocked with simple jeans, tracksuits, frilly dresses and power suits. So, it’s time for us to give in and let them elevate our look and mystically blend into each one at the same time. We don’t know how, but these boots have become a complete style chameleon.

Colour-block It

Carolina Herrera may have given away the creative reigns, but she did leave us with one final message – always be elegant and don’t be afraid to play with colour. One of the absolute best looks, one that we presume will be remembered and worn for years to come, is the one featuring a simple crisp white shirt, a ball gown skirt and a wide belt in a contrasting colour. This is a look worthy of the red carpet and meeting the queen, but it is also great for going out or even rocking it at work. We have been reminded, once again, that there is so much beauty in simplicity, even when that simplicity includes colour-blocking. As pieces like these are easy to find, go and find your go-to colours and mix like there’s no tomorrow.

Power Up

Finally, let us not forget about
the mighty power suit. Every woman should own one, whether she is a ladyboss or not, because we all deserve to feel and look powerful. There are so many cuts that you can choose from fitted and oversized tailored blazers and wide-leg trousers in checked pattern, pastels or saturated colours, so make sure you pick one out and wear it as often as you can because this is unquestionably the outfit of autumn 2018.

Planning your Autumn wardrobe in 5 simple steps

With the summer already a distant memory, now that the temperature has started to drop, many of us are diving deep into our wardrobes, trying to find last year’s coat.

Published in Trends

Adapting to changing seasons is no easy task when trying to balance appropriate clothing and keeping up with fashion trends. As seasons and trends change, so does the relevance of certain items in your wardrobe and your favourite, go-to garment of choice last Autumn may no longer be “on-trend” or looking in great condition. The key to creating a wardrobe that can be easily adapted to seasonal trends is to mix staple, timeless and versatile pieces with trend-led statement items so that you won’t have to completely overhaul your wardrobe every time a new season rolls around. Just because the leaves are starting to turn brown and shrivel up, doesn’t mean your sense of style has to as well. We’ve rounded up five essentials that every man needs in their wardrobe to keep them looking sharp this autumn.

Warm Basics

Streetwear is a trend that is currently taking the fashion industry by storm and it shows no signs of slowing down. Bulk your autumn wardrobe up with some staple streetwear basics that can be layered under trendy jackets or jumpers. Whether you’re relaxing at home or layering your basics and using them as an undershirt on colder days, having a plain crew neck t-shirt in simple colours such as white, grey or black is a must-have for any man’s wardrobe this autumn.

Shearling Jacket

In the past year or so, we’ve seen shearling coats in multiple colours for women and now it’s time for the men’s shearling jacket to burst onto the scene. If there’s anything you should do this autumn, it’s to invest in a quality shearling overcoat that will keep you warm during the cold months. Leather is also a huge trend this autumn, therefore, you could even mix the two trends and by purchasing a shearling lined jacket with an outer layer crafted from a mix of leather and suede to add texture and detail and be bang on-trend.

Check Pattern

A quick browse through the “new in” section of many fashion websites and it will soon become clear that checks are a huge trend this autumn. The catwalks have embraced this trend and models have been seen dressed from head to toe in bold and bright checked patterns. If all over check isn’t your thing, then we suggest teaming a checked shirt under a double-breasted jacket (also on-trend this autumn) to create the perfect subtle outfit, suitable for work or casual drinks. If you want to take check to the next stage and make a statement, invest in an overcoat with oversized tartan or plaid check print to transform your autumn look.

Knits

Gone are the days when a men’s knitted jumper or cardigan is associated with the older generation. The fashion world has taken the autumn/winter staple and injected style into it. It goes without saying that knits are a go-to for most during colder months. However, this year, not only will a staple knit keep you warm but you’ll be creating a stylish autumn look too. Try to stick to timeless bold colours for an effortless, clean look.

Sturdy Boots

There was a time when sturdy boots were only seen on the feet of hardcore hikers who spend their weekends walking for miles over the hills of the countryside. However, this year, walking-style boots have been adorning the catwalks of major fashion shows, with Louis Vuitton and Giorgio Armani even getting in on the action. Not only will a pair of sturdy lace up boots transform your footwear into a head-turning, fashion statement this autumn, but they are also extremely practical and comfortable to wear if you do find yourself on a long walk or caught in the unpredictable autumn weather.

A Star Is Born

At Samaya UK, pomp and circumstance are conjoined in the highest expression of haute couture with the excellence of a tradition that inextricably interweaves refinement (with a capital R) and a very contemporary desire to delight.

The luxury of time, first of all, since thousands of hours of devoted labour goes into the making of a A STAR IS BORN dress.

The luxury of the exclusive comes next because of all the handmade embroidery, not to mention the fabrics, the patterns and the colours are all specially thought through and designed: the special prerogative of pure inspiration, the inspiration of A STAR IS BORN, resolutely, uniquely, singular.

The creators of this exclusive brand Sheetal and Suchi were born in India, home of the lavish and opulent design culture, an upbringing surrounded by the beauty of its culture, architecture, history and daring, elegant designs.

Suchi and Sheetal, raised in Mumbai, cultivated their vast knowledge of textiles and embroidery under the watchful eyes of their mother and mentor who was well known in India for embellishing intricate work on silk fabrics for Oscar De La Renta and many other such prestigious brands.

As children, Sheetal and Suchi was mesmerized by the handiwork, colour and cuts produced in their workshops and they always knew they wanted to be a part of this intensely visual, medium.

Suchi moved to the United Kingdom where she absorbed the ethos of modern restraint and the closely guarded secrets of draping, cutting and embellishing fabric to a create clean, elegant and timeless silhouettes for women who understand fashion and get what they want.

Between the equally opulent but aesthetically opposite worlds of India and the UK their style was nurtured. Remarking on the excitement being generated by the designs, renowned for her exquisite style, consistent originality and breath-taking designs, a vision of elegance rooted in the here and now, the forever and the incomparable, A STAR IS BORN.
