During women’s fashion week the Men are barely ever noticed. With the likes of top models and it girl running around men’s fashion goes unnoticed. This season we scoured the streets of Milan to find the trendiest and coolest guys to show you what you should be wearing this coming summer season. Looks ranged from men in suits to men in side bags and tropical print shirts, and we were loving it. The best part was everything was right on trend, so here’s a list of the must-have items for summer 2019 with the help of some well-dressed gentleman.
Whatever season a man needs a well-fitted block colour suit to wear during the work and play days. Whether it’s Tom Ford or Armani, Ralph Lauren or Topman the major key is to get it nicely tailored and wear it with a pair of trainers or take after the Italians and get a pair of good loafers.
Small sunglasses are all the rage so you should be able to find them anywhere. Versace did a great collection of small oval sunglasses for the Menswear SS19 season. Big obnoxious sunglasses are also back in style, thanks to GUCCI, in an ironic sense ofcourse, you can even wear ones with flashing lights if you like, just as long as the brand logo matches the level of extraness.
Each season you can guarantee there will be a brand taking on the tropical shirt, long gone are the days when Hawaiian shirts were only for your dad. You can find them from high street stores like Zara, MANGO, Asos, they are simple and smart. Styled with the right pants and shoes you can look clean and put together, a great look for a summer party.
Side bags are now so cool it’s actually become uncool to wear anything else while running around. Men have become inventive with how they were it, on the waist, hanging off the shoulder, or strapped across the chest like armour. It’s practical and stylish, everyone from Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, Burberry and Jacquemus are showing that it’s the new men’s staple.
