SS17 Menswear Trends – Top 7 Wearable Trends

With the new season comes new trends, and there is no better time than spring to give your wardrobe a much needed overhaul. From stylish stripes to ultra relaxed fits, here are some of the top menswear fashion picks to keep your eye out for in spring / summer 2017.


Cuban collar shirts

In general, men’s fashion for 2017 seems to be looking much more relaxed, with loose fits taking centre stage. A cuban collar shirt is the must have shirt for spring and summer – this wider collared shirt is lightweight and airy yet with an air of smart refine. Whether for a formal event or for adding a dapper edge to your day to day look, a cuban collared shirt promises to bring your outfit to the next level.

How to style it

Pair a plain white cuban collar shirt with smart chinos for an effortlessly cool semi-formal style, or work Hawaiian inspired prints with jeans and trainers for a easy to wear day-to-day look.

Sports luxe

Good news for any fans of the sports-luxe trend – it doesn’t look to be going anywhere anytime soon! We spotted 90s inspired streetwear all over the SS17 runways – and even caught a glimpse of the classic shell suit! The great thing about the sports-luxe trend is its effortless appeal, and the fact it can be interpreted in a number of different ways. From zip up tracksuit tops and slouchy hoodies to trainers and joggers, the sports-luxe menswear trend is the perfect excuse to wear your comfiest clothes and call it fashion!

How to style it

This trend can be a tricky one to get right; to keep on the right side of fashion and avoid the look becoming too slobby we’d recommend picking elements of sportswear and pairing them with something a little more refined. Think a smarter shirt with relaxed joggers, or a pair of chinos with a cool sports jacket.



From jackets and jeans to distressed denim and double denim, this season denim is everywhere! While once doubling up on denim may have made the fashion police cringe in shame, this season all the usual denim rules have gone out of the window. Clashing shades? Totally acceptable! Denim patches? You got it!

Denim is perfect for creating a relaxed yet ever-stylish look. With an air of effortless cool, denim really is a man’s best friend.

How to style it

We’re loving denim shirts for the tricky spring / summer transition period. A medium blue denim shirt with bronze button detailing is perfect for a casually on-trend look. Team with a pair of chinos, or a pair of darker denim jeans if you’re braving double denim.


You heard it here first – suits are back in fashion (which perhaps begs the question, when were they ever out of fashion?)! This season however, step away from your three piece suit and instead focus on your separates. Suits in 2017 are set to be much more versatile. You can, of course, still wear your double breasted jacket with a smart shirt and tie for a formal affair, but you can also team it with a casual t-shirt and jeans to nail the smart casual look on more relaxed days.

How to style it

For a formal affair, suits in tonal shades are the way forward. Navy blue shades are perfect for this – choose a blue jacket, blue shirt and blue tie in slightly varying shades to keep the look complementary and fashion forward. If you can, opt for some different textures to help break the outfit up – a textured tie, for example, is a great way to keep the look interesting.

To work your suit into a more casual look, try wearing your suit jacket open and relaxed with dark, loose fit jeans and a simple t-shirt.

Relaxed fit trousers

From cuban shirts to wider legged trousers – relaxed fits are officially in. Both trousers and jeans this season have taken a comfortable turn. Gone are the restrictive skinny jeans and slim fit trousers of years gone by, making room for looser cut denims and chinos that project a laid back, casual style.

How to style it

This one is pretty easy – just style as you would your usual jeans or trousers! We love the the juxtaposition of darker, relaxed fit jeans with a suave blazer jacket and smart shoes.


Patterns are set to be huge this year, with stripes easily being the frontrunners in the style stakes. From classic horizontal stripes to modern, vertical stripes, stripes this season are worn muted and in varying widths.

How to style it

Opt for a full vertical striped shirt worn loose for a relaxed yet smart day to day look, or work a striped tie into your formal getup to keep your occasionwear looking fashion forward.
