Slowly but surely, the temperature is cooling down and the weather is ever so slightly changing. This can only mean one thing – Autumn is on its way. In general, clothing trends are welcomed more during the A/W season and this year, fashion is set to be back with a bang.

During the catwalk shows at the start of the year, the runways were packed full of fun trends, must-have accessories and key styles to take inspiration from. So, with that in mind, let’s take a look at this year’s men’s fashion trends and accessory must-haves for the A/W season.

Find A Shirt That Works

Shirts are a must-have wardrobe staple, no matter the season. But, the styles can change throughout the year. For example, in the summer you might choose a lightweight linen shirt when the weather is warm. But, in the autumn, it’s time to change your go-to shirt style again. This year, it’s all about the utility shirt. They’re the ultimate autumn layering piece and can be worn open over a classic tee and paired with jeans and boots, or can be worn buttoned up for when the weather gets a little chillier.

The Ultimate Time Piece

When it comes to men’s accessories, there’s nothing more perfect than a stylish watch. It’s the ultimate accessory to any outfit, whether you’re suiting up for a day in the office or mooching to your favourite brunch spot on a hungover Sunday. When it comes to finding the right watch, this is something that is different for each man, depending on their individual style and preferences, but this season, it’s all about the material strap watch. Mixing functionality with style, this latest watch trend is being used by all the big watch brands, so no matter your budget, if you’re looking for a new wrist accessory, be sure to check out this latest trend.

Dark Chic

On the A/W catwalks this year, there certainly wasn’t a shortage of dark tones and colours. It seems that designers this year are taking inspiration from all things monochrome, with head-to-toe black. Another trend we can expect to see is layered black styles, for example, black tailored pants with a black shirt, blazer and trench coat for the office, or black joggers, dark oversized mens hoodies and a black puffer jacket for chilly weekends. Tailoring is key with this trend and well-fitted pieces are a must.

Streetwear Is Still Hot

Even after years of being a key trend, no matter the season, streetwear is still huge and, if anything, only seems to have become more popular. There are more luxury streetwear brands than ever before, all offering something slightly different from one another. Even though streetwear is a trend within itself, it still takes inspiration from the latest styles and fashion trends. You can always find pieces to suit your style and budget and layer them with other trends to create an on-season look. For example, oversized t-shirts paired with tailored trousers and trainers are a great casual office look.
