Any well-prepared, fashion-forward man will want to be ready for the chillier seasons ahead, which is why we’ve put together this list of the top three fall fashion trends for men in 2020.
This spring and summer have seen denim return in the form of bleached out and acid wash styles, but this fall is expected to see denim return to its roots. Designers from around the world have sent denim down the runway in a variety of styles for the upcoming season, from the patchwork denim trench coats and selvage denim overalls of Per Götesson’s collection to E Tautz’s classic tailored denim pieces and wide denim cargo pants. Bethany Williams sent a hand-painted denim co-ord down the runway while Stefan Cooke showed a number of raw, wide-legged denim pants and skin-tight denim styles.
Milan’s denim influx was in the form of grungy, vintage designs, including oversized, torn skater jeans and cut-off bell bottoms as well as bleached denim jackets and bootcut jeans that wouldn’t look out of place in the Wild West.
Paris’s collection of denim styles were unsurprisingly polished, with raw-looking Canadian tuxedos and wide-legged, untreated denim trousers.
If you’re considering adding to your denim collection this fall, consider opting for classic vintage designs in a medium wash to stay on-trend.
Black leather is a trend that comes around year after year and fall 2020 is no different. Due to its timeless, rugged, and masculine aesthetic, a quality leather bomber jacket will be a staple item in your wardrobe this fall and for many years to come. A leather jacket will cost more than most fabrics but it will last a lifetime, so opt for a style that will complement the majority of the items in your wardrobe.
For something a little riskier, a pair of slim-cut black leather trousers would be the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. John Lawrence Sullivan and Jordan Luca released an array of leather trousers for next season while Pronounce showed off their abstract, black leather trench coats, toggled blazers, and wide-leg trousers.
A number of Italian fashion houses such as Gucci and Ferragamo have launched everything from high-shine leather shorts and matching jackets to soft-touch leather pants, while Parisian designers released more structured leather pieces, such as leather blazers and brown, patent leather suits.
Corduroy is once again back on men’s fashion radars since Prada released their autumn-winter collection in 2017, which featured caramel-colored, head-to-toe corduroy designs. This year, corduroy is back, but in a slightly more subtle way.
Prada’s oversized corduroy jackets were mirrored in Brunello Cucinelli and Ferragamo’s collections, while Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, and MSGM showed off their vibrant, baggy and collegiate-looking designs in pink and toffee shades. To embody this sophisticated and classy look, invest in some wide-cut jumbo-cord trousers or a loose-fitting corduroy blazer.
