About the Fashion for Men Report

The Fashion for Men Trend Report comprises trends and patterns found within the menswear industry.

Sample Fashion for Men Pro Trends

Each Fashion for Men PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online fashion for men articles, videos and images. Examples:

Half Formal Classed up business casual is a reflection of the new corporate attitude Implications - Young adults joining the workforce were raised to value individualism. As they join the professional world, they shake up traditional environments with more laissez-faire, be-yourself attitudes. They celebrate diversity of interest, style, learning techniques, and are thus revamping traditional work cultures.

Power Couture Professional, tailored menswear signal return to classic authoritative style Implications - Despite the recent shift towards business casual dress, more designers are returning to classic menswear, creating sharply tailored 3-piece power suits. The popularity of retro-styling and shows like ‘Mad Men’ may be influencing men to emulate the tailored and polished style of the traditional career man, who embodies authority, power and style at all times.

Unisex Dress Clothing designed for both men and women eradicate gender norms in fashion Implications - Over the last couple of years, fashion has been obsessed with the androgynous aesthetic, showcasing men dressed as women and vice versa. Now, designers are creating entire collections of unisex garments that can be worn by both sexes. By eliminating gender norms in clothing, these collections pave the way for a completely new approach to style that underscores the idea that fashion is more about expression and art than it is about gender.

Mischievous Masculinity Consumers are intrigued with the bad boy attitude Implications - The men’s fashion world has gone through a variety of styles and aesthetics, from professional and preppy to rough and rugged. Now, it is seeing a throwback to the ‘50s greaser look and its accompanying “bad boy” attitude. With provocative images of mischief-seeking men, advertisers are using this retro revival to gain the attention of both females and males who are simply looking for a good time, if not a bit of trouble.

Polka Dot Poise The traditional print is no longer confined to informal, girlish attire Implications - Polka dots, once reserved for informal, schoolgirl attire on the playground, is getting an haute couture makeover. Designers are incorporating the traditional print into elegant products for menswear, dog clothing, interior design and kitchen accessories. No longer indicative of innocence, polka dots are now more readily used by designers.

Shabby Chic Couture Pre-distressed materials offer consumers a sought-after edge Implications - What is typically associated with everything shabby has taken on a new form in the market. It now costs big bucks to buy products with already distressed-looking materials. Shabby-chic fashions—with high prices—give consumers an edge to set themselves apart, yet allow them to maintain a high-fashion look.

Cosmic Couture Space-inspired design puts a galactic spin on clothing and accessories Implications - An obsession with space and all things related to galaxies far, far away has spawned a number of fashion items inspired by galaxies, stars and distant planets. This celestial inspiration is making its way onto accessories and apparel, appealing to fashion consumers with a love for science fiction and fantasy while giving clothing, shoes and accessories a fantastical dream-like effect.

Hipster Ubiquity (UPDATE) This individualist subculture continues to explode in popularity Implications - Instead of fizzling out, the hipster lifestyle phenomenon proves to have staying power. This subculture has pervaded nearly every aspect of pop culture, and is no longer restricted to young adults. As these consumers value independent thinking and expression, companies must similarly seek ways to stand out to reach this market segment.

Mancessorizing Men are fine-tuning their look with a concentration on extra accents Implications - With a sharp focus on the accessories that pull together a final ensemble, men are no longer abandoning the more intricate details of their wardrobe.

Fe-Male Fashion Traditionally female fashion and accessories are getting a macho facelift Implications - From man purses to male lingerie, nearly every category of female fashion and accessories is getting a masculine touch. What makes this trend so interesting is that it opens up dozens of product categories that only need a simple refit. We’re at a point where acceptance is increasing, but limited selection means that new products still generate massive buzz.

MANimal Animal-inspired menswear give men fashion ferocity Implications - It wasn’t common, until now, to see a pair of zebra sneakers or a leopard pullover designed for a man. However, animalistic clothing and accessories—always a hit with the ladies—are now making their way into the wardrobes of men everywhere. Allowing a man to show off his “wild side,” the emergence of animal-inspired fashions for men also shows how the fashion trends of men and women are constantly converging. While women can revel in men’s watches and boyfriend jeans, men can enjoy animal prints to their hearts’ content.
