5 fashionable highlights from Menswear Spring 2017

As the season’s menswear shows wrap up around the world and before we get ready for the womenswear collections about to hit the runway, it’s time to take a look at some of the biggest trends and hits we spied from London, Milan and fresh from Paris.

Trends come and go, but certain key highlights stood out for us this season which we hope we’ll see more of as time goes by. And we hope many of these make it to the streets soon. From prints to accessories to footwear, here are five highlights at Menswear Spring 2017 we think will be all the rage in the next few months.

Boxy blazers

We noticed that designers are going towards the more boxy silhouette this Spring. The shoulder padding on Balenciaga, Dolce & Gabbana and E. Tautz blazers all seemed to be slightly longer than usual, coupled with a slight shortening of the blazers’ hemlines. This gave the models a more squarish and henceforth boxier overall appearance.


Paperbag (loose) trousers

To neutralise the boxy and rigid upper silhouettes, the bottoms shown on the runways were more loose this season. We believe that this trend is here to stay, as Etro, Fendi and J.W. Anderson presented loosely fitted pants that flowed more, in order to complement the more casual and relaxed Spring vibe.


Socks and sandals

It seems like grandpa chic is in right now, as more and more shows paired up socks and sandals, adding a little bit more detail to your footwear. Perhaps, the layering is meant to add a “pop” to your outfit, simply to keep your toes warm from a practical standpoint — all we know is that Versace, Prada and Gucci are doing it, and it doesn’t look half as bad as we pictured.


Athletic socks

If you are not into the aforementioned socks with sandals look, or don’t want to test it out, you could just scrap the sandals and go strong with the socks. Athletic socks seemed to continue the athleisure trend, with Dries Van Noten and Moncler Gamme Bleu pairing them with combat boots while Gucci did the same with chic, embellished sliders.


Bell-boy cabbies

Taking a little inspiration from the past, Spring 2017 was all over the cabbie. Whether you’re having a bad hair day, or you fancy going for that golfer look, Gucci, Kenzo and Moschino all sent their models down the runway with cap, which is clearly making a comeback.
