While autumn has lingered long into December, winter’s here and there are few fashion trends for the well-dressed man to look for this year. Courtesy of French Vogue, here are 10 winter 2016 fashion trends for men to consider:
Fur – While it may not be the first thing you think about when you think of men’s fashions, fur has had remarkable staying power in men’s clothing for centuries. Whether it’s a full coat, or the lining on the hood of a bomber jacket, you will spot more men sporting fur on their outer wear this season.
That 70s Style – While not a full retro treatment, look for 70s-inspired highlights on clothing and outerwear. We’re talking wider lapels and collars, flared pants and graphic prints.
The Colour of the Season: Burgundy – Winters usually feature subtler tones and burgundy seems to be a popular choice with leading fashion designers this year.
Baggy Pants – Whether it’s the end of skinny jeans remains to be seen, but baggy trousers and high waistlines are in this winter.
Oversized Coats and Jackets – The trend to baggier fits and wider collars extends to outwear in the form of large, warm coats and jackets. And ¾ lengths will be popular too.
The Long Scarf – Whether worn inside your coat or out, long scarves are the accessory of choice this season.
Rollnecks and Turtlenecks – While they are a perennial winter favourite because they combine good looks and warmth, rollneck sweaters and shirts will keep you warm, and fashionable, when it gets cool this year.
Leather Pants – Yes, they are back once again. This year look for new colours like olive greens and dark blues in tailored, not tight, fits.
Leopard Prints – In what might be an extension of the 70s influence on this year’s styles, bolder fashionistas will sport leopard prints on waist coats and winter jackets.
Velvet Revival – In the comeback story of the year, velvet returns to the fore in jackets and trousers, including velvet corduroy, in a rainbow of colours, from pastels and the aforementioned burgundy, to classic beiges and browns.
