Men’s autumn fashion 2017
Certain colours are set to dominate men’s autumn fashion. First off, you’ll see purple everywhere. As the colour of luxury and royalty, you’ll feel like a king in this shade. Go for a lilac shirt with a grey suit and purple pocket square with matching tie for the perfect formal attire. If it’s a special occasion, why not polish off your look with an elegant pair of purple cufflinks?
Not feeling purple? Another autumnal colour set to whip up a storm this season is orange. Bold and vibrant, this is the shade of confidence, guaranteed to make an impact when you step out. We reckon you should play it cool with this warm colour. Wear a neutral white shirt and plain black trousers with an orange tie and fluorescent cufflinks to make this seasonal shade stand out. On colder days, throw on an orange, multi-coloured scarf with a black raincoat for a stand-out effect in this autumn fashion season.
Wide leg trousers
Forget skinny jeans, new men’s fashion this season is going to focus on wide-leg pants. More relaxed and comfy, these are ideal for the office. Or, even heading out to meet friends for a drink. You can easily create the perfect smart/casual look by wearing them with a fitted shirt and pair of loafers.
If you enjoy getting suited up, this is your season. Men’s fashion in autumn is big on fearless suits in alternative styles, from oversized lapels to fluorescent colours. Keep an eye out for unusual jacket designs and customise the trend by pairing your suit with a floral tie, or cerise bow tie and quirky cufflinks.
Baggy garments are another top autumn 2017 menswear trend. Rather than the tailored fit that’s dominated men’s fashion lately, there’ll be a surge in the anti-fit design. Get ready for oversized knitwear to be particularly popular this season. We suggest emphasising your long, oversized jumper by wearing it with slim-fit jeans for a powerful contrast that looks great on casual days out.
The puffa coat was once a Nineties boy trend to forget. But it’s going to make a big return to autumn fashion this year. Throw a quilted coat over a casual shirt and black denim jeans for a warm and comfy autumn outfit, or wear it with t-shirts, chinos and converses for a dressed-down look.
Out of all the new colours going to be big this season, camel is the most versatile. Camel is definitely your shade if you’re a man who likes to dress quickly and easily — neutral but with more warmth than plain black, white or grey. Wear a camel jumper with a pair of dark jeans and comfy camel deck shoes for a laidback look this autumn. Or put on a cashmere camel scarf over a linen blazer for a casual yet sophisticated outfit.
What you’ll notice in the next few months is a return to business-casual in men’s fashion. There’s no easier way to add style and personality to a suit than with a sleek tie. Luckily, the tie trend is set to take a hold of gentlemen’s style this season. If you have to get suited up for work or just want to look stylish at special autumn events, get neckwear that makes a statement. Flower, paisley and geometric ties really stand out while keeping you looking sophisticated, and these look incredible with suits of all cuts and colours.
Double-breasted suit blazers
Sticking with the smart-casual trend; this season’s also going to see a lot of suit blazers. Think boxy styles reminiscent of the Eighties that complement the swing towards oversized clothes we mentioned earlier. Make sure you get yourself a double-breasted design and pair it with anything from suit trousers to straight-cut jeans.
If you’re not feeling the Eighties, what about the Seventies? Autumn men’s fashion is making space for a disco-era revival in the form of the iconic silk shirt. If you think this look’s for you, pair it with a pair of formal trousers and matching jacket and you’ve got a dapper suit that’ll go down a storm at formal occasions this season. On the other hand, why not do your own version of the trend and wear a satin or bow tie with your favourite shirt?
