Oversized Shirts

How about some inspiration from the 50s and the 60s and prefer oversized dress shirt in 2021 and beyond? The best thing is that you add stylish and fancy touches without overdoing them. Choose from a range of mesmerising color options or even those with intricate patterns or floral motifs, or just keep everything simple yet sophisticated by opting for white or black shirts.

Sorbet Pastel Tones

The year 2021 is expected to be dominated by pastel tones. Sorbet-inspired colors would be the perfect option for this summer. Interestingly, they go well with a wide range of skin tones. You can choose from an oversized trench coat in soft lavender or a boiler suit in cool mint green. Better yet, you can try them both simultaneously. Suits in the buttery and soft hues can significantly elevate your overall aesthetics to become your chicest style for seasons ahead of you.

Balloon Sleeve Dress

In years past, norms were hardly redefined but the year 2021 is expected to bring in a series of fashion options such as Balloon Sleeve Dresses. Invest in a Balloon Sleeve Dress that will breathe new life into any oversized sweater for the coldest of days.

Puffer Pieces

You don’t have to depend completely on your outwear for warmth. How about taking some cues from the runways of Dior and Prada for making fashion-forward puffer jackets an important part of your stylish outfits? Look out for details such as deep-set side pockets, non-traditional zipper placements, and cinched waists to tackle even sub-zero temperatures with complete elegance and style.

Monochrome Matrix

Gone are the days when a fashion magazine landing at your doorsteps or a trip to the mall was the only way of uncovering innovative and latest fashion trends. And there is nothing more delighting than the Monochrome Matrix in a year when our world seems turned upside down. One of the best things about Monochrome Matrix is that investing in it would not ever make you regret.

Bermuda Shorts

The year 2021 is likely to see the return of wider, longer shorts to echo a broader shift that is happening right now across different segments of menswear for quite a time. The important thing is to ensure you get the length just right. For this to happen, you should emphasize on a couple of inches above the kneecap’s top and choose tailored styles that you can pair with either smarter or casual pieces with complete ease.

More Gorpcore

For the last few years, the great outdoors and high fashion started flirting, and now they are loudly calling from the rooftops about their admiration for each other. Fashion journalists call it ‘gorpcore’ (gorp being termed as a colloquial term for trail mix). Whatever you want to name it, it is here to stay for long! In recent months, there have been collaborations such as Gucci x The North Face and Palace x Arc’teryx to further cement the fashion industry’s relationship with outdoor gear. You may opt for the odd outdoor-inspired pieces into your outfits instead of going complete cosplay mountaineer.

Mid-Wash Denim

Raw or dark denim can be defined as a bonafide menswear staple but it stops to become practical when the weather turns hot. Thankfully, you can opt for a few shades lighter and casual that can go with almost everything. Mid-wash denim looks like it is here to stay.

Camp Collar Shirts

Classic collar short-sleeve shirts may at times carry with them some form of unwanted “lads down the pub” connotations. Camp collar shirts have been in demand for some years now that means you can always be assured of some kind of longevity in them. The best thing is that the lapel and flat collar does add a stunning touch of something unique to what might otherwise be a bland outfit. Keep your eyes on long-sleeve versions of Camp collar shirts.

Textured Tailoring

This year, ditch the smoothing fabrics and watch tailored looks taking off. Materials such as wool, corduroy, and tweed can be of great help when you want to take your sartorial shops to the ultimate level, while creating focal points and adding character within the outfit. Save it for dates, weddings, and parties.
