You may feel confident when dressing-up for your man, but can he dress to impress you? Hopefully, the only way is up, for him, with a style injection from Men’s Collections SS21 followed by a second dose of affordable high street fashion. The latter plays a crucial role in the accessibility of catwalk trends. What is more, the best menswear fashion SS21 has arrived on the high street and offers a myriad of trends and styles, notably the resurgence of ‘70s and ‘80s fashion. Fashion has a way of repeating itself but remains contemporaneous with the current times.

The quality of high-street menswear brands has evolved (I am pleased to say). When personal shopping for men, in retrospect, some fast fashion brands looked too cheap. Their clothing lacked a polished finish. Nowadays, certain high-street brands have more pizazz. Zara’s current menswear collections, for example, can easily pass as high-end luxury fashion, especially when styled well.

Utility – Menswear Trend SS21

Here are five top SS21 fashion trends that are making waves on the high street.

  1. Utility – the trench and safari jackets reign supreme in traditional fashion. They are perfect for the summer and complement other wardrobe staples such as a classic t-shirt and a pair of jeans. TK Maxx has a trench coat in cream plaid at £79.99. The epaulettes and waisted belt add further detail to such a sophisticated style. The trench jacket is a must-have SS21 practical piece. Additionally, look out for cargo trousers and oversized shirts.

1970s Resurgence

2. 1970s Resurgence – flared jeans, wide collars, aviator sunglasses and leather bombers are making a comeback from the days of Starsky and Hutch. Perhaps, incorporate one or two statement pieces into a casual ensemble as opposed to all styles at once. Topman’s monochrome bomber jacket is super stylish and would look uber-cool with a pair of jeans. It also costs £49.99. Such good value for money.

Neon Classics

3. Neon is not the easiest colour to pull off, especially if your preference is the more subdued outfit. However, spring is here and, I believe, we are all in need of cheering-up after being in lockdown for so long. Marks and Spencers stock a vibrant pair of shorts in neon pink, priced at £12.50.

The 1980s Suiting

4. 1980s-inspired suiting pays homage to flamboyant styles, harem trousers. The style of MC Hammer was untouchable at the time. Look out for double-breasted jackets and big collars, both of which are fashion statements in themselves. Why not sport Marks & Spencer’s double-breasted wool-blend coat for only £99.99.

Fresh Florals

5. Fresh floral – Do you love prints? Paul Smith offers an array of beautiful florals and bright colours. Florals always bring a breath of fresh air to the spring/summer season. Also, the high-street offer affordable options in terms of Bermuda shorts, classic shirts and jackets. Matalan’s tropical print shirt, priced at £12.50, oozes holiday vibes. Stay tuned!
