Every season brings its own trends and styles. This winter-to-spring fashion is all about staying warm, staying dry, staying comfortable — and looking good at the same time.
What you can expect to see are staple pieces with new twists, designed to help you exude maximum cool no matter how low the temperatures plunge. Let’s check out the biggest men’s street style trends for this winter -to-spring season to help you get the right look.
The Cowboy Look
Cowboys are back in a big way. HBO’s Westworld brought them back to TV, Red Dead Redemption 2 brought them back to video games, and now designers are bringing them back to cutting-edge fashion. And what man’s never dreamed of being a cowboy? Rugged denim is definitely in this season, with checked shirts, hard-wearing boots, fur-lined denim jackets, classic jeans and cord all on trend. There’s something timelessly cool and reliable about the cowboy style: you’ll look and feel ready for anything life throws at you. It’s also a great way to mix subtle and vibrant colors. Match a bright checked shirt with a black denim jacket and black jeans, or a brown cord jacket with a muted shirt. And hey — the cowboy hat’s in again too. These are amazingly versatile and add an amazing finish to a rugged look. Match your hat with a denim shirt, jeans and boots to unleash your inner Eastwood.
Cargo pants were all the rage in the early to mid 2000s, and while you might see someone sporting a pair once in a while, they’ve been out of style for over a decade. But now they’re back. And they’re awesome. This season men’s cargo pants are more about tailored cuts and streamlined shapes than those of old. Cargo pants come in all kinds of colors, fabrics and lengths. Velvet, checks, pattern prints — there’s more variety now than ever. You can dress them down with a parka and sneakers for a blustery walk on the beach, or you can pair them with a casual shirt and pumps to hit the bar. And who knows? If you’ve still got a few pairs at the back of your closet, maybe you can still make them work.
Go Big or Go Home
The big coat is most definitely in. One of the most popular types of coats you’ll see this season is the check overcoat. Smart, stylish and traditional, these sophisticated pieces are available in a good range of colors and fits. If you want a tailored fit that suits a trim waist, you’ve got it. Something a little roomier? It’s out there. They’re all ideal for the office when matched with a suit or add a gentlemanly edge to jeans too. Chunky puffer jackets work this season as well: they’re effortlessly cool, practical and versatile. Trench coats and parkas are essential big coats too. Finally, shearling jackets are everywhere. Most popular in denim and cord, shearling jackets’ lining adds volume to the overall shape in a subtle way.
Embrace the Fluff
Scarves have continued to play a key role in the discerning man’s look, and not just for staying toasty. The sheer range of fabrics, colors, patterns and lengths makes the scarf an endlessly-pliable piece in your collection. This winter-to-spring season, men’s scarves are fluffier and thicker than ever, adding a bold new texture to your style. You’ll find plenty of colors and materials to try, with something for every guy. Choose your scarf wisely, though — make sure it matches your complexion and clothes. You don’t want to disrupt your entire ensemble with your final piece.
Colorful is Masterful
Last but not least: color. Pink is one of this season’s MVPs — vibrant, dynamic, bold. This color actually does a lot for most men, even though some of you might think it’s a little too traditionally feminine (come on, guys, it’s 2019!). Alongside pinks, expect to see neon hues, yellows, oranges and other warm tones adorning the most fashionable men on the street. It’s an easy way to inject a little color into the season while looking like a man on the cutting edge.
Explore these men’s street style trends for this winter-to-spring season, and you know you’ll find some looks you just can’t believe you’ve lived without so far. From cowboys to cargos, from trench coats to anything in pink — this season has it all!
