A new season means new trends to whet your appetite and although changes in menswear move at a slower pace than in womenswear, it doesn’t mean you have an excuse to stick to a palette of navy, grey, black and perhaps green.  Be inspired by collections from top men’s designers ticking all the boxes for great style with colour and print to give your wardrobe a kick start for Autumn.

1.     Pink

Shades from the brightest fuchsia to lightest pink cropped up across the mens’ fashion weeks but it’s the dusky muted pink which you need to introduce to your wardrobe this season.  Think of it as a toned down, dirtied pink to partner with jeans and tailoring alike.

A pale pink shirt may be a workwear staple with many a suit but a casual rolled sleeve button-down in a heavier cotton will add an effortless twist to your weekend outfits. Smart wardrobe in need of an update? Try a pink paisley print tie for bonus style cred.

2.     Leopard

It’s been big news in women’s fashion forever but the impact of animal print on menswear is still in short supply. Until now, that is. The appeal of a leopard’s spots is no longer limited to womenswear and men wanting to make a style statement; this wardrobe staple for us girls has made its mark on the high street with ZARA Man, H&M and Ted Baker including the print in their Autumn/Winter collections.

Do not be afraid, the men’s take on this pattern takes on a more subtle form than it’s feminine counterpart in muted and abstract animal designs.

3.     Neon

Fluoro accents are synonymous with sportswear styling and as lines blur between a more casual working environment and athletic touches create hybrid multi-function styles in everyday wear, it’s no surprise designers are also bringing neon tones into mainline collections.

Look for neon t-shirts to layer with your neutral staples for a flash of colour and if you’re feeling daring, go bold with highly saturated outerwear inspired by Philip Plein.
