Change is afoot. With the new year comes plenty of new looks for men—especially if you’re feeling bold. It’s a season of statements: wear your shorts to work; pink is the new navy when it comes to suits; pant legs are as wide as can be; dress like an athlete even if you’re more of a benchwarmer; pick one strong look and it may just be an endless summer after all. Read on to capture the season’s best sartorial inspiration.
Go Big or Go Home
This season, it’s all about “more” when it comes to pant legs. Forget those skinny-leg jeans and hipster-leaning silhouettes of late and instead think 80s and 90s-era volume. Wide leg trousers were seen on the runways of Etro, Emporio Armani, Versace and Gucci, evident that this trend has plenty of wearability—even off the runway. Click here to view.
Who doesn’t want to permanently channel the tropics? Those shaka vibes come in handy this time of year, when polar vortexes seem to cast a spell over the entire country. Embrace your inner surfer dude with some fun loving prints from Balenciaga, Salvatore Ferragamo, Fendi and of course, Vilebrequin. Click here to view.
That Sport Life
Whether you’re a natural-born athlete or needed a little extra encouragement to get off the bench, you can dress like an all-star this season. Windbreakers play a key role in outerwear as evident in Ermenegildo Zegna, Bottega Veneta and Ralph Lauren’s collections, as do some retro-inspired ski jackets according to Balenciaga.

This is what we like to call foolproof dressing. One simple choice and you’ve got an ensemble—no need to fret in front of that wardrobe door for hours. Jumpsuits made runway appearances at Gucci, Versace, Giorgio Armani, Bottega Veneta and so many more, proving that this is one look with plenty of versatility. Click here to view.
He Wears Short Shorts
Men, it’s time to show some leg. This new look isn’t about objectification, it’s more liberation! Feel free to break out of those pants and jeans and hike that hem line way above the knee—even if you’re not beach-bound. With the endorsement of Prada, Canali, Salvatore Ferragamo and DSquared2 among others, we think this look is a safe bet. Click here to view.
The Future is Bright
Maybe it would be more appropriate to say the present is bright, when you take a look at this new trend for Spring. We’re always going to be a fan of the classic navy, but this season’s collections featuring bright and bold suits in pink, green, mauve and magenta make a great case for technicolor dressing. Just take a look at the offerings from Dolce & Gabbana, Etro, Ermenegildo Zegna and DSquared2 for proof. Click here to view.
