The Freshest Way to Wear a Belt
Get waisted this season with the latest waist defining belts, because nipped in waists are back. At the Spring 2017 men’s runway shows, designers put a focus on the waistline by utilizing skinny belts, rope ties and colorful statement belts. The nipped in hourglass effect was everywhere from Paris to New York, as designers used belts to cinch in coats and jumpsuits, or to hold up exaggerated, high-waisted trousers. Others used extra, long belts, leaving the long end hanging over loose fit trousers. Some designers used belts in ultra bright patterns and bold colors to add a touch of playfulness.

The Return of Short Shorts
One of the most unusual and surprising trends that caught our attention during the spring 2017 menswear shows in New York was a resurgence of short shorts, and way above-the-knee shorts for men. We’re talking short shorts and chubbies that seem somewhat inspired by athletics and Baywatch. Some of the shorts are reminiscent of old school basketball and skater styles with a modern athletic twist. The cool thing is you can style them as grunge, preppy collegiate, or as a laid back beachy look. One things for sure, coordinated short shorts are set to become the new summer staple.

Lose the Skinny Jeans
Stash your skinnies this spring and opt for more relaxed, loose fitting trousers. This trend has been steadily growing over the last few seasons and shows no indication of slowing down. At all the major runways shows, designers featured a diverse range of wide legged trousers in their Spring 2017 collections. The wide-legged trouser allows for a relaxed, polished look when paired with a tailored blazer, or can be dressed down look with a graphic t-shirt. See more on this trend here.
How to Rock Dark Florals
Designers across both sides of the Atlantic embraced dark florals and tropical prints for Spring 2017, imbuing them with references to exotic travel destinations. Fashion escapism was a major trend confirmed by the many beach themed collections decorated with exotic tropical florals, psychedelic patterns and bold geometric prints.

The All in One Jumpsuit
Jumpers, rompers, overalls, call them what you want, but the fashion world won’t stop obsessing about them. To say that the traditional work wear staple has become a sartorial look in men’s fashion would be something of an understatement. However, if the Spring 2017 Men’s runway shows are any indication then you are going to see a lot more of them. See the full jumpsuit trend report here.
Sunny Yellow Like the Color of Sunshine
Yellow is another favorite hue for spring, radiating hope, optimism, joy, happiness, which is something we all desperately need right now. See the full yellow trend report here.
A New Punk Ethos
In the early 1970s, Vivienne Westwood and her boyfriend, Malcolm McLaren, made the ultimate anti-fashion statement by introducing punk to the UK.
“Punk provided a way out for the “No Future generation.” It was never meant to be about nostalgia”says Punk in its original form may be long dead, but it was alive and well on the spring 2017 men’s runways. See more on the punk trend here.
