Another menswear season has begun. With several men’s shows canceled due to Omicron surges, viewers were left with mainly Milan and Paris designs to follow. However, the labels that did exhibit attempted to make the best of the situation, with the great majority of designers displaying a fresh creative enthusiasm not seen during the previous lockdowns.
The fact is that the clothing on display was far more interesting to look at, talk about, feel, and (hopefully) wear than those shown on virtual runways in previous seasons. Overall, menswear appears to have evolved and is eventually having a bit of fun. Here are some of the top men’s fashion choices for 2022.
Overly dramatic shoulders are the most obvious current development in menswear across the spectrum. Designers have been exploring how far our shoulders can be pushed out, with outcomes ranging from the absurdly huge to the crisp and angular.
A robust shoulder may suddenly enhance a modest piece, such as a soft knit. You can easily DIY your shoulder pads for an extravagant-shouldered blazer and live out your runway fantasies.
You’ll enjoy a robe-style jacket if you have trouble getting out of your more than comfortable house robe, especially during the harsh winter months. These coats wrap around the waist exactly like a bathrobe, and the hemline usually falls just below the knee. In the rest of the winter months, a fur or leather variant of the coat will keep you warm, and lighter suede and canvas variations will be available come spring.
Balaclavas are all over TikTok and Instagram and are now pushing their way into authentic fashion via runways. Balaclavas are perhaps a by-product of the mask-wearing triggered by the pandemic. The truth is that the COVID-19 outbreak has made us more daring with our wardrobe choices, and while we’re constantly covering half of our faces, why not go all out? Last fall, it was introduced in womenswear shows, so it’s no surprise that we’re seeing it now in men’s fashion 2022.
If you watched Halston on Netflix, you probably noticed that the American fashion designer enacted by Ewan McGregor’s signature style is the turtleneck. He can be credited with starting the turtleneck trend currently sweeping men’s fashion. The protagonist made a wise fashion choice by wearing a turtleneck, which looks great on almost everyone, and one can wear it under any jacket.
Many designers combined patterned, multicolored, and cropped turtlenecks in their presentations, ensuring that you can’t go wrong with this style as long as you don a turtleneck in some form.
The practical puffed-up jacket has been all over the runways for the last several winters, and as per the men’s runway presentations, we can anticipate seeing more puffer clothing this year. With the rise of “Gorpcore,” a style centered on outdoor utility and sports, quilted material is becoming more fashionable. Pairing a bulky winter puffed-up jacket with the most useful hiker-style boots is a simple way to get into this vogue.
Now, more than ever, no one knows what the future holds. However, these 2022 men’s trends are a great choice. You won’t go wrong if you buy comfy, multipurpose apparel with a vibrant design.
