The world’s leading menswear brands have been reinventing their old-fashioned ways for several seasons now, allowing them to focus on new ways that redefine how we look at men’s fashion. Groundbreaking brands such as Gucci, AMI and Kenzo have all contributed to this new wave of modern menswear with their unique approach to style.

With most of men’s fashion rules thrown out the window, the Fall/Winter 2016 collections are expressions of those who dare to be different. From Raf Simons’ silhouettes to Paul Smith’s bold colours, brands are encouraging you to stand out from the crowds in the most fashionable way, and so are we. Here are five of the most daring trends to implement this coming season.

1

Hot pink

They say real men wear pink, and this season, the most fashionable ones will. Brands like Paul Smith, Kenzo and Gucci all featured at the hottest of pinks for Fall 2016. For those who dare to be different, style one of these statement pieces with simpler items in your wardrobe instead of wearing pink head to toe.

Metallics

A trend we’ve seen for women season after season, metallics are all over menswear this fall. Calvin Klein, Versace and Dsquared2 all featured the trend in their designs. We like the edge it can bring to your wardrobe, though we suggest you get a metallic jacket and stay away from the trousers.

Pyjamas

Pyjamas have never been this stylish and acceptable to wear outside, but this season, all that has changed. Though we don’t recommend you head to your next meeting in pyjamas, now that they’re the perfect statement pieces — as shown by Gucci, Roberto Cavalli and Fendi — you can wear them from day to night.

Scarves

Silky smooth scarves can be the perfect finishing touch for many outfits. Whether you’re in your suit or your weekend shorts, scarves are the next big thing if Louis Vuitton, Acne Studios and Raf Simons have anything to say about it.

5

Sequins

Who says men can’t wear sequins? This season, brands such as AMI, Balmain and Burberry all used them in their collections. We’re expecting you ti shine bright this fall, guys.
