IT’S TIME TO PACK ALL YOUR WINTER clothes and put together the coolest outfits for the summer. Sadly, Covid is still around and we are still living under the new normal. So, let’s beat the blues and heat in style with a new wardrobe. And in order to give you a nudge in the right direction, we have curated a selective edit of the outfits that could be a part of your wardrobe. From florals to Bermudas, to linens and widening silhouettes, these are the men’s fashion trends to embrace in 2021.

UTILITY IS THE NEW WAY

The utility trend has been making a strong appearance at the streets and on runways for several seasons now. There seems to be no letting go of this trend as fashion continues to be fascinated with the many facets of the military uniform, safari look, and workwear. A part of this trend's appeal lies in its practicality. The larger pockets could fit just about anything. But, for 2021, the utility jackets have got an upgrade, as they have been made higher functional. Cargo pants and utility vests adorned with multiple pockets will reign supreme this summer. Some silhouettes also take distinctively monochrome military essence. This summer utility wear also comes in unexpected shades of lilacs, purples, pinks and other pastel colours. This summer will all be about looking like you’re coming out of the apocalypse fighting (which you kind of will be, as we are still fighting a pandemic!).

THE BOMBER JACKET RETURNS

Well, you might think, bombers? For spring? Whose groundbreaking idea was that? But truth be told, there were more takes on these classic aviator jackets at the Spring/Summer 21 shows than we could count on our fingers. From 1970-style bomber jackets in nylon, to shine high flight jackets and cropped bombers, the 2021 Spring/Summer versions of the bomber jackets are less maximalist, cleaner and leaner than in previous seasons. These zip-up style jackets may remind you of your high school letterman jacket or when paired with combat boots, may even give off a grungy aesthetic, but either way, it surely deserves a spot in your closet.
