With the Men’s Spring/Summer 2020 Fashion Collection now shoppable, new trends await from some of the top designers in the world. The Men’s Fashion Weeks have been a halcyon place of oversized suits, satin overcoats or printed patchworks…all that will make you go weak in your knees. As the trends begin to surface on the streets, it’s time for a quick style-check with these top 20 men’s fashion styles that are a must-have in your SS20 wardrobe collection.
Here’s our take of the biggest Spring/Summer 2020 trends:
1. Satin…beyond just drapes
Satin’s ultra-close weave offers it a liquid, glossy surface – an open canvas for designers to create anything fresh and vibrant. From Dior’s tailored satin suits to stylish shirts and harem pants at Saint Laurent or Zegna’s satin Y-cropped jackets, this men’s fashion trend is chic, wearable and elegant.
2. It’s all about leather
Uber-cool leather pants are back this Spring/Summer 2020. But this time, it’s everything from chi-chi to chic. The Men’s SS20 Fashion Weeks have seen some of the best leather trousers that are cut loose (and not skinny) and available in the trendiest shades of grey (Louis Vuitton), midnight blue (Lanvin), brown (Hermes) and black.
3. Double denim
The omnipresent and ever-essential denim made a resurgence in Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks this season. The ramps showcased double denim two-pieces – chic denim suits at Loewe, donkey jackets with patchwork denim jeans at Versace or a more rakish bell-bottom jean and jacket combo at Celine – denim is certainly back with a bang.
4. Animal prints back in style
This Spring-Summer men’s fashion collection has seen a lot of surprises. And animal prints are certainly one of the most intriguing amongst them. From Dolce & Gabbana’s leopard-print extravaganza or ombre sweatshirts at MSGM to Zebra-striped coats at Sacai, animal print is all set to make a mark this fashion season.
5. Biker jackets for a hardcore impression
The rugged and sexy biker jackets got a makeover this season. The SS20 collection showcased biker jackets encrusted with rhinestone at Philipp Plein, in alternative hues at Moschino and Armani, and Americana-inspired tasselled work at Versace. Pair it with skinny jeans and biker boots for a lasting impression.
6. Pockets…and more pockets
Multi-pocketed outerwear has got all the attention this season, especially in safari jackets, field jackets and field-safari hybrids. The show-stoppers are many – cotton styles & low-key canvas at Dolce & Gabbana, leather styles and ultra-luxe suede at Fendi and Tod’s, hooded jackets at Prada, or jacquard field jacket at Tiger Of Sweden.
7. Pink isn’t just for women after all!
Pink is in vogue this Spring-Summer season. Designers have been brave to work on it and rock it! Neon, classic pink and delicate pastels have been stealing the show in Emporio Armani suit, a Loewe tunic or a trendy safari-style ensemble at Dior.
8. Co-ord 2.0 is the go-to fashion (Double up)
Yes; the old-style co-ord fashion is back in trend this Spring-Summer season; however, in a more creative way. Double-up your short-sleeved shirt with a matching pair of shorts, perhaps in a denim jacket and jeans combo at Charles Jeffrey or a matching silk shirt and shorts at Edward Crutchley.
9. Bringing in the tropical flavour
For a fresh, vibrant and refreshing look, these tropical-style shirts will definitely make heads turn. Pick a typical bowler shirt, one from 1950s retro style, a Hawaii 5-0 or flaunt Baz Luhrmann’s striking Leonardo di Caprio look in Romeo & Juliet – the tropical touch makes everything look pulsating.
10. Go sheer
See-through is the next summer trend for fashionable men out there. From sheer shirts, meshy trench coats and Mandarin suit jackets at Versace and Giorgio Armani to rockstar-ready t-shirts John Lawrence or transparent tracksuits at Qasimi – the look was soft and sexy.
11. It’s the season of short shorts
This Spring-Summer season, the designers have taken the “short shorts” look to the next level by making it more intimate, ahem and aesthetic. The ramps have seen models featuring look-like boxer shorts in silks, exquisite satin shorts at Kiko Kostadinov, and light cotton at E Tautz and Fendi.
12. Effortlessly Stylish
Style yourself comfortably and effortlessly – that’s what designers had in mind when presenting their Spring-Summer 2020 collection. A new trend of comfort and liberty comes at the forefront, highlighting designs like Hermes’ baggy pants or oversized shirts at JW Anderson.
13. Bohemian is the way to go
In an ode to the “effortless” trend, the SS20 Men’s Fashion runways transformed into a bohemian paradise, featuring harem pants, printed ponchos and lavish prints.
14. Go out-of-the-box with long tunics
Why should women have all the fun, especially when it comes to long tunics! Therefore, extra-long shirts have made their way to the summer trend, exhibiting pieces by Fendi, Raf Simons or Vetements.
15. Overdyed, bleached and color-splattered
Artist Sterling Ruby led the way towards a paint-splattered, overdyed denim jacket and two pieces. Versace, Dior and Ermenegildo Zegna took the trend forward with a more refined look and bleeding colours through patchwork bleached donkey jackets, organza bombers and cotton co-ords.
16. Stylish stripes everywhere
Men’s suiting made an entry last summer. And for SS20, pinstripes have looted all the attention with a more laid-back, sophisticated and format suit style. Spotted trends are Casablanca, Celine by Hedi Slimane and Chalayan.
17. Tank tops with oomph
From classic designs to logo prints and eye-catching illustrations, tank tops for men certainly add an oomph factor to your style quotient.
18. Sailor-styled shirts win the runways
Classic berets, sailor colours, subdued tones and nautical style…Lanvin, Marni and Ann Demeulemeester revisited the modern sailor-style in their pieces.
19. Ouch…those open shirts
A well-sculpted torso beautifully shows off your masculinity through an open shirt…a must-have in your fashion collection this Spring-Summer season.
20. Bags to make heads turn
This season, the runways have seen major artistic transformations in bags. From basket bags by Fendi to champagne cases by Dior, every artwork had a striking feature you cannot ignore.
Hopefully, these men’s fashion picks will keep you in vogue this Spring-Summer 2020.
