Men’s style has become electric over the past decade. Where once it was only the women’s market that truly flourished for the masses, now trendsetting men are a force to be reckoned with. Australia is an inherently stylish country; there is amazing retail, an impressive seasonal fashion week, great male bloggers and general style aplenty. For the record, here’s what men are wearing in Australia this summer.
The ’70s have made a comeback, whether it is on TV or in fashion, the style has filtered its back into the sphere of fashion, onto the runways and now into trends. Think wide leg trousers, belts and open bomber jackets.
Perfect for summertime, pop colours are a great way to soak up all those sunny vibes. Although a full outfit would be an impressive feat, this men’s trend will see more statement or featured pieces in pop colours, such as light jackets or runners.
Tailoring on the runway was in abundance for the season. Shirting is back again with modern takes on timeless classics. Contemporary cuts with fresh accents on sleeves, for example, were all the rage. Expect to see some pretty dapper dudes dotting the streets in Australia.
Both subtle and sensational, stripes are in fashion. Whether a more washed-out stripe floats your boat or full-on coloured stripes, the options are endless. Take things to the next level by mixing and matching clashing stripes.
Popping pastels into monochromatic outfits is going to be a game changer this season. Think jumpers, socks and light summer scarves of lemon, pink or blue. This is the minimal way to introduce colour into your summer wardrobe.
Cool, light and breezy, this summer style is perfect for Australia. As a key trend on the catwalk, linen suits were ablaze, as well as suit jackets, flowing kimonos, wide-leg pants and shorts. This is most certainly a practical summer trend to invest in.
Back again, the trusty sports luxe trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon (to our delight). This trend is one of the most versatile, covering a wealth of occasions from office-worthy to evening cocktails. And who doesn’t love outfit efficiency? When the Aussie summer heat truly kicks in, wear tailored shorts with shirts and runners.
Another nod to the ’70s, round glasses have come back with a bang! Although standard round sunglasses can be found in shops aplenty, choose pastel-coloured hues or pop colours to make a real statement.
