With regard to the trends in men’s fashion, there are “differences”: deviations from the norm that distinguish you as a man capable of going beyond the fast track of fashion. Then there are those that you should completely divert if you do not want to look like a car accident.
This does not mean that you can not put the pedal on the metal on the last must-haves, especially if you want to avoid being accused of being stuck in first gear. But some looks are so much there that they need insurance.
In addition, it is always better to jump as in “avoid” rather than “regret bin”. So, with the caveat above, FashionBeans is here to indicate which current spring / summer trends you can safely remove, and for which the fashion police will probably attract you
It is hard to believe that we must even write that berets are a trend, let alone you should ignore them, but that is fashion . If you are Skepta or Che Guevara then maybe you can remove the activist-chic headgear without inadvertently channeling Frank Spencer or inviting the inevitable onion-selling jibes, baguette-toting. Other? We are skeptical.
What to wear instead: bucket hats
With the resurgence of the 90s in full swing, consider adding a new back to your list of trendy buckets. “With many and varied supports ranging from Louis Vuitton to Justin Beiber, bucket hats have been promoted from Britpop throwback to the haute couture accessory,” says stylist Giles Farnham of the River Island Style Studio.
Bucket hats are also handy, especially during the festival season, protecting your neck and face from the sun – or more likely rain as you watch the return tapes.
Primary Color Block
A chromatically punchy look is one of those that work a lot better on the catwalk or Instagram than IRL. (What looks like most trends nowadays, but maybe it’s just us.) Your main guideline in the case of combining block colors in a Lego palette is: avoid, unless you present a TV show for children early in the morning. ] What to wear instead: faded colors
“It’s one of my favorite trends this season,” says Olie Arnold, Porter’s style director , which advocates it for dressed summer outfits. “But it’s not the easiest to wear because it depends a lot on your complexion, if you have a darker complexion, it will probably complete your coloring, if not, then he can wash you.”
If paler, do yourself a solid by counterbalancing a bleached piece with a contrasting shade of the same color family: “For example, a faded gray summer blazer will work wonderfully with a navy blue T-shirt,” adds Arnold
Blazers Eighties / Nineties
Faded Sneakers and Jeans, Normcore / Dadcore a resurrected oversized and beefier clothes than an ordinary man trying on Anthony Joshua’s costume jacket.In reality, we will make fun of you even if you are not the star of Seinfeld which, we suspect nnons, constituted the vast majority of Balenciaga’s mood chart this spring / summer
Instead: Shirts from the 50s
Camp collar, Cuban, floral, Hawaiian necklace: all this what you call them, they are everywhere. “The shirts of the 50’s have become ubiquitous thanks to the luxury heavyweights that support the trend, and the high street offering infinite variety,” says Farnham. “That and they are just so damn wearable.”
The windy fabric, the prints and the neckline make a bridge between chic and casual. “Wear your chinos with an unstructured blazer and soft suede moccasins.” Dress it up? Wear it over a white T-shirt with denim shorts and a top. Happy days.
90/1965 Sunglasses  When it comes to glasses for the hottest months , the designers seem to have caught the turn of the millennium bug, with smaller frames and more square lenses, and references ranging from Britpop to The Matrix . Even Kanye himself has decreed, via an email to Kim with “millions” of reference images, that tiny sunglasses will be huge. But do not be blinded by the hype.
What to wear instead: Seventies sunglasses
Look further back, and not in anger. “The era of sunglasses is reviving – again,” Arnold says. “While there are normally clear rules on what you should wear depending on the shape of your face, the oversized aesthetic is suitable for most people.”
Except for violets that shrink, that’s it. “You need a lot of confidence to make things happen,” says Arnold. “And as for all looks that refer to a bygone era, make sure you do not look disguised by keeping a contemporary outfit.”
You remember the trends that work best on the catwalk and on Instagram only in real life? If you’re not standing on a beach, arms outstretched, in a video clip, then all-white-errthang is out of reach, if not impractical. You just ask for grass stains, or worse.
What to wear instead: Tonal colors
But not white, of course. “The first rule of tone is to stick to the colors you know,” says Farnham. And that’s not what you can recite from the farthest corners of a painting board. “If you only wear navy, gray, and black, going into the magenta office from head to toe will seem a bit unnatural, and that will happen too.”
The second rule for a top-notch look is to vary your textures. “Mix a monochrome set with different fabrics to attract attention,” Farnham adds. “For example, a clean, minimalist navy sweatshirt paired with navy blue corduroy pants or flocked fabric.”
