We have seen all types of wonderful and strange trends emerge in men’s wear this season, from bold cutout pieces to vivid color blocking, skirts and lace, and many more.
Of course, there are interesting and striking from a runway perspective, but when it comes wearability is something that most serious means will struggle with.
Fortunately, more muted trends will trickle down to high street and luxury fashion to make some cool wearable items.
- Varsity Jackets
Sportswear, in general, is a massive trend in menswear this summer season, from basketball and football items, hooded sweatshirts to jogging suits, and many more. However, varsity jackets are making a massive comeback.
Very wearable, chic, and super on trend—it is well worth adding one to your summer closet this season.
- Black and White
Bold prints and colors are extremely in fashion for 2022, but we are seeing a lot of monochrome black and white on the opposite end of the spectrum.
Elegant and simple, yet a scaled-back color palette enables more bold men to bring experimentation to their wardrobe. It is an unforeseen yet fresh option for summer.
- Summer Knitwear
Knitwear is not something that you might think about when creating your summer wardrobe. However, it is a functional staple for the cooler days and evenings. Summer/Spring ’22 catwalks were rampant with statement knitwear from Burberry, Versace, and Gucci.
This year’s summer knitwear is all about youthful prints and bold novelty. Simply pair it with lighter staple items—ideal for early summer and the transition through the autumn later in that year too.
- ‘90s Style
The nineties fashion is here again. Think skater-style clothing, graphic t-shirts, and Vans. Skater style looks cool, is comfortable to wear, and is also a style that most body shapes could pull off.
As we can notice from luxury brands, this returning trend has taken on a more sophisticated, flattering silhouette than the baggy style that skaters nailed a few decades ago.
There’s no doubt it’s still nostalgic of the initial trend that most men would have worn as teenagers but takes it to a new level.
- Bold Prints
Prints are more likely to feature heavily in summer fashion, but 2022’s prints bring art to men’s fashion. You will find everything from bold geometric prints to graffiti, tie dye, and patchwork.
For example, Marques Almeida splatted festival-friendly print across hoodies, and other items on the Sprint/Summer 2022 catwalk, and other designers also featured numerous tie dye designs.
Moreover, bold printed pieces are effortlessly styled because you can pair a colorful top with basic bottoms or shorts or vice versa.
- Minimal frames
After experiencing freedom in fashion with mixed patterns and oversized trends, it’s time to return to our roots and embrace the beauty in basic things.
Defined by sleek shapes and simple designs, minimal frames are both gorgeous and minimal. If you don’t want trends that are so in your face, the Monohull OX5151 Eyeglasses by Oakley is here for you.
Whether you are going on a vacation or planning a staycation, those are the things you would like to wear this summer season.
