When it comes to fashion trends we want to indulge in, it’s always a good feeling to be sure of what we’re getting into. What if the fashion police absolutely hates the one trend we like? What if celebrities never end up wearing it? It might sound shallow but it’s true that we love it when our fashion aesthetic gets validated by influencers. Find yourself stuck in a similar situation? Here are 5 blogger-approved trends you should get your hands on. Thank us later.
1. Check Mate
Winter is synonymous with checks, isn’t it? Be it jackets, trousers or even shoes, anything in the check-adorned pattern looks pleasant to the eyes as the temperature drops. Year after year, the trend has got a stamp of approval from fashion weeks and celebs alike. This year’s no different. With Burberry coming up with an entire line of menswear in their version of checks and Matthew Zorpas slaying it in this checked suit, we’re certain this trend will be huge again.
2. Sneakers With… Everything!
Blame it on Anand Ahuja or the fact that Paris Fashion Week was all about sneakers, the sneaker fever is here to stay. And they’re not limited to ‘athleisure’ anymore. Think Indian wear or swap it with the good old oxfords when you take the formal wear route. We love how Tejeshwar has worked his mint green attire with white sneakers.
3. The Return Of Fanny Packs
You must be thinking that fanny packs are kind of stale in the fashion scene now, but here’s the thing - the appeal is not limited to the fanny pack anymore, it’s about how you wear it. Clearly, the bag has moved from the waist to the shoulder and it’s looking better than ever. Take a cue from Usaamah and nail the sporty look by wearing a contrast-coloured fanny pack that stands out.
4. Draw The Line
Stripes are more than just a trend, to be honest. They’re a fashion staple now. Don’t limit yourself to the nautical stripes, please. Contrast colours, bowler strips and abstract ones too - this is the time to wear the line you like and make a statement. Adam Gallagher sets the mood just right for winter in a navy and maroon striped sweater.
5. Get The Trench
Riaan rocks two of the biggest SS19 trends in one look - earthy colours and a trench. Both of which we’re sure will be all the rage in the coming months. Even though Riaan’s version of the trench is slightly shorter than the ones we spotted on the runways, it’s one that’ll go perfectly with your casual looks.
These uber stylish men not only make us want to copy their style, but also wish for winter to come sooner. Are you excited?
