Invisible Socks, No Belt, Over The Knee Shorts: Meet Men’s 2020 Fashion Trends
From no-show socks to cross-body bags, when America reopens, men will look snappier than ever this summer with gleaming ankles in full view. According to a wide range of fashion trend spotters, here are what stylish men will be sporting:
White Chinos: Thanks to white chinos, you’ve now got the effortlessly well-groomed thing locked down. With its clean-cut fit and lightweight feel, it’s your ultimate styling hack. You can also try rolling up the ankles for a more casual look, and your invisible socks are more useful than ever.
Seersucker Suits: With its breezy texture, accented by thin puckered stripes or checkers, seersucker lets you beat the sweat in style. This material works great with shirts, shorts and blazers – or any jacket, really, for when you need a simple, light layer for those dressier occasions.
Swim shorts: Rolling back to the ‘50s, back when short shorts were cool, are swim shorts. Not exactly ideal for the fashionably squeamish, but for those who don’t give a flying fidget spinner, let your quads fly free. Fashion forward men are on board with this super short trend, featuring ones in vintage-inspired colors (red, yellow and navy).
Lose the belt: It’s time to invest in trousers and suits without belts. The days of matching your shoes with your belt are now gone too. Ensure your trousers and jeans are well-tailored to suit your waistline, add a tee shirt or shirt, maybe even a polo. Classic combinations of white tailored trousers will continue to be a style stapled for every special summer soirée
Invisible Socks: Whether they are black, polka dot, beige or navy, invisible socks serve a real purpose: they keep your feet comfortable, calm, warm and sweat free on any given spring or summer evening. And they are style agnostic—they match anything you are wearing.
Cross-Body Bags: For keeping belongings safe and sound with a stylish flare is the super snazzy cross body bag. Whether it be a messenger-style or something small and neat, these are a great way to secure your stuff and do it fashionably. If the strap is too long for your liking, tie a small knot in it, and you’ll have a unique addition to your collection. This is a great way to jazz up an outfit and is a practical way to do it.
Oversized Blazers: Take it back to the ‘80s with an oversized blazer. Large and in charge, put a twist on the essential suit jacket by taking it up a few sizes. Whether it be a pinstripe or something one color, this is a great way to put a retro spin on a modern outfit without looking too formal. Choose a fit that’s slightly bigger than the regular fit or go all out with something massive. Pair it with a basic tee shirt or a funky button-down and jeans, and you’re going to be strutting down every street in style.
White Tee Shirts: Nothing’s more versatile in the summer than a well-fitting, comfortable lightweight tee. Opt for shirts that feel lightweight yet strong, and aren’t too see-through when you pull your hand up from the underside. Stripes are fun without being too loud, and solid colors like blue and even black add character to your wardrobe
Over the Knee Shorts: These are a fun fashion addition this year. Over the knee shorts are a great way to keep yourself mostly covered but stay cool in the summer heat. Whether you rock these bottoms with a bold pattern or you keep it hot in a bright color, you can’t go wrong in these statement pieces. Complete this look with an open shirt and fresh kicks.
Flares: The ’70s are back in a big way with these flares. With a thin upper leg and an exaggerated ankle, these trousers are sure to make an impact anywhere you go. Pair the pants with a slim-fitting shirt or turtleneck to emphasize the bell bottom, or keep it flowing with an oversized hoodie and T-shirt for a more casual feel. No matter how you style these, you’ll have the appearance of super long and oh-so-stylish pins.
Patchwork Print: Make it loud and wear it proud – patchwork prints are back. From Versace-esque designs to plaid, this is something that looks great on everyone. Wear a shirt with cutouts of different styles and contrasting colors with a white tee shirt to make the whole outfit pop. Stand out even more with funky pants, or keep the top half the hero by pairing it with dark trousers for a classic feel.
Shield Sunglasses: Sunglasses are such a personal preference, they can take literally hours to select the right pair for your face. This summer protect your eyes from the sun in the coolest way possible with these shield sunglasses. Futuristic and sleek, these are the best accessories of the season. Wear them oversized for maximum impact, or keep them small and colorful for a powerful punch. Whether you choose bright tones or something subtle, these shades will be your favorite way to complete any outfit.
Men have a lot of great fashion choices to look cool. Bring it on!
