Autumn-Winter Menswear Trends 2021
Here it is, this season’s menswear clothes are showing the following trends of the fashion industry. We have seen streetwear showcasing new, unique, and creative collections.
The pandemic this year has had a positive impact on the fashion industry and has inspired designers to create trendy clothing that people are excited and ready to buy.
The result? A new focus from brands such as Prada, Fendi, and Zegna and collections that are more intriguing than ever before. We are ready to guide you through the hottest autumn and winter menswear trends of 2021 you should be wearing.
Trench coat, the return
Nothing new – indeed the Spring/Summer 2021 collections featured classic outerwear clothing. For Autumn/Winter 2021, however, it’s about going back to basics with the original trench coat or mac.
Polos to go
The solution for a comfortable top is a knitted polo shirt, which is offered by a wide array of the biggest brands. Featuring all the requisite elements of a classic shirt (point collars, plackets, buttons) with none of the crinkly discomforts, the best could be found in heavy gauge cashmere and bright shades at Jil Sander and Prada, and in softer lighter constructions at Amiri and Hermès.
It comes as a surprise that some of the smarter designers chose to lean in fully to our living and home-working situation this season, with many highlighting wraparounds. At Louis Vuitton, Abloh showed what looked like actual dressing gowns worn out onto the runway by models holding cups of coffee and LV-branded newspapers.
Suits, but different
Most designers forewent classic tailoring this season (no one needs a double-breasted work suit when working from the sofa), but many did decide to show one form of two-piece or another better suited to lockdown life. Enter the non-suit. Defined by a matching top and bottom cut from tailoring fabrics and devoid of restrictive padding, canvasing and traditional lapels.
A hard world requires hard outerwear, which is perhaps why the vast majority of the biggest menswear designers chose to cut their most tautly tailored overcoats this season from heavy-duty leather.
