Looking to invest in some new pieces for autumn/winter 2018? There are plenty of new menswear AW18 trends to covet and copy this season.
Tailoring is always key with the menswear collections and this really came to the fore in the autumn/winter 2018 collections. Workwear took on a distinctly more fashionable feel, with designers playing around with prints and textures to create fun twists on traditional suits. Checks in particular were a huge trend, with designers such as Versace, Marni and Thom Browne each presenting their own take, from Prince of Wales to tartan and plaid. Choose a statement oversized checked coat to channel the trend or, for a more daring look, team tartan trousers with a plaid shirt.
Brown is most definitely the colour of the season for menswear, with beige, chocolate, taupe and tree-bark hues coming to the fore. Perfect for autumn, these shades were seen across all four fashion cities, from Louis Vuitton to Ermenegildo Zegna and Fendi, and from full beige suits to textured brown teddy-bear-style coats and chocolate-coloured accessories. Be sure to punctuate your autumn wardrobe with this shade.
As we enter the new season, now is the time to invest in a new coat and quilted jackets were highlighted as the outerwear of choice for AW18. Quilted or puffa-style jackets dominated the catwalk, with many designers paying tribute to all-weather dressing and offering 1990s-inspired padded styles. Shearling was also a huge trend for the menswear AW18 collections, with many contemporary takes on the winter classic.
