Men’s ready to wear SS16 trends

While it’s still a little bit on the chillier side of the scale for the time being, the latest spring / summer trends from the catwalk season have already arrived into the stores. Time to put away the skinny jeans, parker coats and heavy layers; it’s time to make room for the newest and most wearable trends for the warmer days ahead.

military safari trends


It’s hardly unheard of for menswear to have a uniform style design to them, and the colour khaki may have been over used in the past. This season shows us a palette of lighter, sandier tones, two chest pockets and chinos, inspired by the outback and safari. Surely a staple for spring this year.

Look out for: Canali, Umit Benan  and Balmain

Wide Leg Trousers

I couldn’t be happier to see the trend of skin tight trousers get left behind! There was a time where armies of men attempted to walk the streets in their spray-ons, now the wide legs are taking the stage. Skinny fit may be a new staple for most men, but a classic wide leg will never go out of style.

Look out for: Craig Green and Christopher Shannon

The 50’s Shirt

Listen up guys, this is probably the only time I will ever condone men’s short sleeve shirts, this shirt has a wider collar, and doesn’t button up past the bottom of the collar bone. Almost leaving an open chest- thus the 50’s shirt. Who doesn’t love retro style?

Look out for: Louis Vuitton and Lanvin

Mens oriental ss16


The term for Chinese influence in western culture. Embroidered bombers, pyjama style trousers and matching blouses. Oriental influences are huge this season, for men in particular. Think of it as an easy way to add a splash of culture to your wardrobe, and the embroidery is always going to be beautiful.

Look out for: Louis Vuitton, Saint Laurent and Dolce & Gabbana
