This season mens fashion has truly taken the stage and grabbed attention more so than ever. Hints of inspiration from the spring/summer catwalk will soon hit the high street and key mens fashion retailers such as Topman, French Connection, Ted Baker and Burton will be incorporating these key trends into their collections. Although subtle, it’s obvious to see the influence of Spring/Summer colours/patterns making their way onto winter knits and flannel shirts in the ‘New Arrivals’ sections, bridging the gap between seasons. However, it’ll be a long time before we see the crisp whites and Hawaiian inspired shirts of Spring/Summer13 fashion week on the high street so here is a mini breakdown of key mens fashion trends you’ll be seeing on the shelves very soon:
Graphic print shirts
Patterns and prints are a key mens fashion trend this season, with Topman offering a range of South American style patterned shirts and knits. Browns and neutral tones are the key colours of the season with hints of red, orange and navy incorporated into the quirky prints.
The ever popular and practical knit will be sticking around but with these seasons’ quirky prints; you have a staple investment piece that you can dig out year after year as soon as the cold hits.
This season’s colour scheme works perfectly with the heritage-inspired mens fashion pieces hitting the high street. Very much influenced by the British hunting, shooting and fishing culture, these heritage inspired pieces will adapt perfectly to your winter wardrobe and work well with layering for those cold winter days. If this isn’t enough to persuade you then Republics current 20% student discount should do the trick!
Long gone is the taboo of carrying a bag, man bags are not only practical, but are becoming increasingly fashionable and readily available on the high street. They fit in perfectly with this seasons key trends and are a perfect addition to your start of term wardrobe.
