Spring-summer 2018 men’s fashion: focus on the trends for this season
Men’s fashion trends today are not much different from those of previous years. The style is sought after. Wanted to be found and assumed. It is something in permanent construction, we choose it according to his age, his musical tastes and his way of life..
All looks are accepted, but there is one thing in particular that you always need to have: the balance of the elements. But what do we mean by that? It is about finding a harmonious combination of materials and colors with a small element (clothing or accessory) accentuated if desired. And to be really comfortable with your outfit, we always favor comfort without neglecting aesthetics. In the following lines you will find a lot of outfits of various styles. Choose the one you like the most.
The sporty and elegant look is in the spotlight this year.
Being comfortable with your outfit is the key to a successful men’s look. Hence the tendency to combine sporty side with elegant side and this is not new. It is not only very stylish, but also very comfortable. Combining a jacket and sneakers is a great idea for going to college or work, for example. It is very classy and moreover, you enjoy the comfort that sneakers provide on a daily basis. This look is undoubtedly THE man and woman look of the year.
Squatting slavs or the return of the sports costume
For a long time, wearing a sports suit every day and every day was not viewed well by fashionistas. Well, for a few years now, we have seen sports clothing items reappear on fashion shows. Inspired by the countries of the East and their eclectic style, it is not uncommon to see a man wearing jogging pants (long or short) every day. It is true that this piece of clothing made of cotton is very comfortable. We like the eclectic street style below: jogging pants, jeans jacket, striped t-shirt. Sounds very bad boy, can’t you think of it? The look of the boy in the background is also super cool! Photo taken in the streets of Paris.
Wearing flip flops with socks is one of the worst ideas ever, but not anymore… Indeed, fashionistas have even accepted this previously unthinkable combination. Below: three ideas of how to wear shorts with sneakers or flip flops.
And for a really successful bad boy look, add a cap to your outfit. The latter is not only stylish, but also very practical because it protects you from the sun. For a hip-hop look, you can put it upside down like in the picture. To feel comfortable with it, it is important to choose the model adapted to your size and according to the morphology of your face.
The forever denim jacket for every day.
It is this timeless, unisex and super comfortable piece. It’s the denim jacket. Long, short, sleeveless or sleeveless, having a denim jacket in your wardrobe is always a good idea. In addition, it will serve you for many years and all seasons! You can wear it in spring, summer and fall. If you are used to wearing only dark colors, the denim jacket will balance the set..
What colors, what patterns ?
All colors are permitted. Usually, they are chosen based on personal taste, but also based on hair color, eyes and skin tone. It is still obvious that to make it more chic, we will opt for the dark and neutral color palette: black, gray, white, khaki. While to make it more summery, we opt for bright and vibrant colors: red, orange, mustard yellow, pink and others. Blue and green are always in the spotlight. Indeed, blue is the favorite color of the majority of French people followed by green.
Regarding the patterns, we discover the same as in previous years: stripes, polka dots, flowers, lines and geometric shapes. Zebra and leopard patterns are also not excluded from the Spring-Summer 2018 men’s fashion list. Wear with moderation.
Checks are still on trend this season, in both men’s and women’s fashion. The plaid shirt, most often associated with Canada, is a must-have fashion piece for any fashionista. We can wear it all year round.
Khaki color and camouflage patterns are always in fashion.
The khaki color is a yellowish-brown shade most often associated with military clothing. It is a universal, unisex color that really looks good on everyone, regardless of hair and eye color or skin tone. The khaki color is easily combined with all other shades: black, white, gray, beige, blue and others. Combining it with denim is a great idea. In the same category of men’s fashion inspired by military uniforms, we discover the camouflage patterns that were very fashionable in the 90s and are back today..

What are the trendy men’s fashion accessories this year ?
In the 90s under the influence of boy bands we often saw men with small earrings and sometimes bracelets. A few years ago men’s fashion accessories made a comeback. The majority of men’s clothing and accessories stores carry a wide variety of original jewelry. There is a very sexy ethnic side to it, don’t you think? Look :
And now let’s explore some men’s looks of different styles …

Usually, we choose clothes in light colors, but dark colors are also allowed. White is usually reserved for bride and groom outfits, but it is also possible to choose it for her wedding guest outfit.
Mustard yellow is one of the hottest shades this year. Don’t hesitate to include it in your outfit! She is very easy to be married with almost any other color.
Jeans, blouse, sunglasses and stylish shoes: the men’s look in the photo below is chic and casual at the same time.
Pastel green is one of the most stylish shades. It has a very pleasant vintage feel. Perfect combined with white or black !
“The most beautiful color in the world is the one that looks good on you. ” Coco Chanel
Burgundy t-shirt, slim and ripped black jeans and white Adidas sneakers and Undercut cut: the total young hipster look.
Some men love t-shirts with an interesting print, while others will never put them on. If you are one of the first, we have a little advice for you: always combine them with clothing pieces of a dark or neutral color so as not to look very kitsch. The look in the photo below is a perfect illustration of our idea: t-shirt with animal print (awesome!), Shorts and shoes in black.
“When I find a color darker than black, I’ll wear it. But until then, I’m wearing black! ” Coco Chanel
And yes, an all-black outfit always looks classy and Coco Chanel said it a long time ago. If you like, you dress in black, that’s fine! You will always have class.
And as we already mentioned before, you can combine your all black and stylish outfit with sneakers – comfort and elegance at the same time.. Marry black and white is a great classic that is always successful. We like the style of the gentleman in the photo below: a large, short-sleeved linen shirt and black shorts.Denim shirt, ripped black jeans, white sneakers and chic sunglasses – a perfect look for cool spring and summer days.
The bow tie: is it still in fashion ?
It all depends on how you wear it. The bow tie is vintage, chic and cute at the same time. If you combine it with a very vintage outfit, you might look too old school. It is better to combine it with some modern elements so as not to look too grandpa or the bunny from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
For a long time a man wearing a pink t-shirt or shirt had an effect. Well, that’s no longer the case. A few years ago, clothes in pink made a lasting impression in men’s wardrobes. If you like the idea of wearing a t-shirt in pink to change from the classic, we advise you to combine it with shorts or jeans in black. Gray is also a possible option.
The tight polo t-shirts are also one of those unisex and timeless fashion pieces. Don’t hesitate to include them in your wardrobe and combine them with jeans or shorts.
It’s up to you to choose the model of the shorts: denim, cotton, without or with patterns. On the Asos website as well as in clothing stores, you will easily find a model that you like.
Choose clothes made from natural fabrics: cotton, linen, silk, etc..
This is even more important in spring and summer when you tend to sweat more. Natural fabrics allow the skin to breathe. And when it’s cold, there is nothing better than merino wool … It is light and really very warm !
Accepting your personal style is important.
It would be a shame if we were all dressed the same. At the same time, we go shopping and it’s not uncommon to see someone wearing the exact same t-shirt as us. And sometimes in the desire to be more original, we choose thrift stores. In short, it’s all a matter of choice. Some gentlemen don’t want to invest too much time in finding and choosing clothes, others are interested in men’s fashion blogs. But there is one thing to always keep in mind: style is built. The style of life.
