Everyone has high expectations from 2021. This should be the year of rebirth, after dealing with a full year of staying in and fighting off the pandemic. And, emerging fashion trends support that statement. If nothing else, 2021 is definitely going to be great in terms of fashion.
We see some old trends paired with a modern twist, completely new color stories, and interesting cuts and designs. If you’re a passionate fashion-lover, then be excited! Here’s what 2021 will bring for men’s fashion:
1. Modern Utility Wear
The classic utility menswear trend has been around for a couple of years now. However, it has changed shapes and forms since its emergence, and the 2021 utility trend is no exception.
So far, this trend has brought back safari jackets and camo. This year, it boasts a more modern and clean high-functioning vibe. Expect pockets everywhere, crocodile materials, canvas, leather, and a lot of belts. Oh, and clean cuts and strong material structure. Think Gucci meets Balmain, but with a twist. One thing’s for sure – we love a good utility-inspired piece.
2. Bomber Jackets Galore
Bomber jackets – we all love them and can’t get enough. Well, if you’re a bomber jacket fan, then 2021 just might be your year. The whole buzz surrounding these jackets is nowhere near dying down.
Recent Spring/Summer 2021 runways have boasted various bomber jacket cuts and designs, proving that bomber jackets are slowly becoming a staple in everyone’s closet. Currently, 70’s inspired cropped bombers are in the spotlight, alongside nylon and neon materials, which we will discuss below.
3. 1970s Comeback
If you haven’t felt the vibe already, the ’70s are making a massive comeback. 2021 will be the year of old trends with a new, modern twist. You’ve been celebs like Harry Styles rocking these looks both in private and at award shows.
And, the 70s are anything but plain and boring. Expect many beige/brown/navy blue combinations, a lot of intricate patterns, and corduroy. Check out the latest Celine and Gucci runways, and you’ll get the vibe for this year.
4. Bright Neon Colors
Bright neon colors have tried to make a comeback since the 90s. Although it might not have been as successful until now, these are for sure the years of neon colors.
Not only are neon colors dominant in everyone’s homes thanks to the popularization of LED lights, but they have also made a massive appearance in the fashion world. Instead of going all-neon, we recommend pairing certain statement pieces with simple add-ons. For example, a statement neon jacket with plain black pants.
5. Pastel Chic
On the other hand, we have pastel colors, which are the opposite of neon colors. Regardless, pastels are also making a comeback in both men’s and women’s fashion. And, nothing looks better in Spring than cool pastel designs. Expect to see a lot of baby blues, candy floss pinks, greys, and mustard yellows. Dominant brands in this field are Gucci, Zegna, and Prada.
3. Tips for Online Shopping
Because of the current stay-at-home orders, we don’t have the luxury of window shopping in prestigious shopping centers. Instead, we’re forced to stay at home. However, that doesn’t necessarily have to be an issue in terms of online shopping. You can score some great pieces from the comfort of your home if you follow these three tips below:
1. Use a VPN
VPNs are an amazing tool for online shopping for multiple reasons. One of the most important aspects is that it’s a great way to protect your information while shopping online. Cybersecurity is more important than ever, so don’t forget to turn on your online safety tools before preparing for a big shopping spree because a VPN connection ensures that your user data is encrypted and location hidden.
2. Look for Discount Codes
Many users don’t know that, by performing a quick and simple Google search, you can find discount codes that will give you up to 50% off on certain items. Or, you can always employ browser add-ons such as Honey, which scrape the web for coupons, and then automatically apply them to your account.
3. Check Reviews
While online shopping is great, many fake websites have emerged to try to trick customers into spending their money on fake goods and low-quality clothes. To ensure that a website is not a scam, make sure to check reviews before finalizing your purchase.
