Men’s SS15 Fashion Trends You Can Try Out Now

Men’s SS15 Fashion Trends You Can Try Out Now

Trying Out SS15 Looks Now

One of the great things about the fashion calendar is that collections are debuted a full twelve months before they actually hit shelves, giving us an insight into what we’re all going to be donning the following year.

With this in mind – and despite the fact it’s currently summer 2014 – here’s how to give some of SS15′s hottest trends a go right now…

Denim Days
On The Runway

It doesn’t take a highly-skilled trend forecaster to work out just how important denim will be next summer.

From Dior Homme’s full denim suit to Gucci’s paint-splattered jeans, the runways proved that SS15 will be all about celebrating this rugged, masculine fabric:

Denim is a material that makes any piece of clothing look effortlessly stylish, whether it be a short-sleeved shirt or skinny pair of shorts.

Perfect for casual weekends, team a simple white tee or grey marl polo with a pair of indigo jeans/shorts for an easy take on the trend.

Or, if you’re feeling extra brave, go all out and rock double denim. This 1990s aesthetic is back in vogue and easier to pull off than you might think:

Lounge Luxe

On The Runway

After several seasons dominated by sharp suiting and slick tailoring, it felt like a breath of fresh air to see designer’s adopt a more laid-back approach at the SS15 fashion weeks.

Slouchy loungewear pieces were given a luxurious update, with Bottega Veneta’s range in particular standing out. The fashion house utilised neutral hues and baggy drop crotch shorts to give off a relaxed weekend vibe.

Paul Smith was another high profile designer who backed the trend, sending models down the runway in silky, pyjama-esque trousers and shorts in beautifully rich shades of navy and purple:

Jersey shorts and tees in rich satiny textures are definitely key to this aesthetic. Forget distressed loungewear and opt for luxurious fabrics that both feel fabulous and look great.

As for tailoring, unstructured, fuller-cut pieces help give the look a masculine edge that’s off-duty but not sloppy – perfect for weekend dinner parties or summer daytime events.

In The Red

On The Runway

If denim is the fabric of choice for next summer, red is without a doubt the shade.

Dolce and Gabbana’s collection was a highlight and included both sporty pieces in burgundy and razor-sharp tailoring in ruby hues, with red separates also spotted at Burberry Prorsum, Boglioli, A. Sauvage and Dior Homme.

Similarly, design houses such as Balmain, Calvin Klein, Bally and Dunhill took a statement approach to the colour, applying every shade imaginable to striking outerwear that included everything from cropped biker jackets to tailored overcoats:

Why not go all out with a sharp suit in a rich pomodoro hue? You won’t wear it regularly but when you do you’ll be turning heads for all the right reasons. Not only that, the jacket and trousers can be split into separates to help inject a bold punch into any casual summer look.

If a coloured suit is too much for you, try working the red trend into your weekend wardrobe with basic polos and tees in rich ruby or burgundy shades. Avoid over-designed pieces to ensure the colour remains the focal point of your look.

Vested Interest

On The Runway

The vest looks set to make a huge comeback in 2015, but not in the traditional undergarment sense. Instead, it was worn far more modestly on the runway as an over or under layer.

For instance, Calvin Klein sent vests worn above t-shirts (and other contrasting coloured vests) down the catwalk, while Christopher Raeburn layered bold versions underneath see-through mesh/sheer tops.

Elsewhere, Versace welcomed back the string vest in all its 1990s glory, Ermenegildo Zegna focused on sleeveless jersey tees and Louis Vuitton included a lightweight knitted version in their showcase:

If you’ve already blown all your cash on your summer wardrobe update, this is an easy and affordable trend to get involved with now.

The best way to achieve the runway look is by investing in low cost, well-fitting basics from the likes of Uniqlo or ASOS and taking a layered approach. Pull a grey vest over a t-shirt in another neutral hue and team with slim-fit denim jeans and lo-fi trainers to score an SS15 trend hat-trick.

Alternatively, why not throw an unbuttoned lightweight linen or chambray shirt over the top of a statement vest in a bold colour or print? The shirt will help to neutralise its impact somewhat, making it easier to wear.

Finally, on extra hot days, keep it cool and comfortable by teaming a plain white vest with tailored shorts and sandals.

Flamingo’s The Way to Go

On The Runway

Another season, another pattern. Flamingo prints were a huge hit across social media when Marc Jacobs sent them strutting colourfully down his SS15 runway.

Although less obviously, the flamingo vibe also surfaced in other collections through the use of colour – Versace’s rose-hued suit and Brioni’s pink digital floral print were just two standout examples:

For the more confident gent, flamingo prints are great for adding some personality and quirk to your summer wardrobe. A shirt or a pair of shorts featuring the motif would suit a holiday abroad perfectly, or a day browsing vintage stores in East London.

If you’d prefer to take a more conservative approach to the trend, however, consider adding staples in shades of peach or pink to your wardrobe, which look particularly great when combined with classic shades of beige, grey, navy and white.

Lo-fi Trainers

On The Runway

After the recent obsession with colourful 1990s-inspired trainers, it looks like we’re about to take a more pared-back approach to our footwear. As recently reported on FashionBeans, ‘normcore’ is all the rage right now and this aesthetic is set to continue into next year with the unbranded designer trainer taking centre stage.

Tom Ford proved that men already have an appetite for minimal luxury with his SS14 plain leather and velvet pumps, which are currently selling like hot cakes:

Lo-fi trainers go with pretty much anything, from slim black jeans and a short-sleeved shirt for a mid-week night out to jersey shorts and a vest for a lazy Sunday walk.
If you want a weekend outfit that’s perfect for summer’s park life, try pairing white tennis shoes with blue denim shorts and polo shirt, layering a lightweight bomber/varsity jacket over the top when the sun sets.
