As the London Mens Collections grace themselves upon us I can't help but share what my 3 favourite trends are as the new season has officially started. As underrated as it is, there is something about men's fashion that intrigues me. I'm sure you've all noticed that a lot of trends we girls wear are inspired by males with the whole androgyny thing we've got going on, but what a lot of us fail to notice is that this works both ways.
Take coloured suits for example.
One of the strongest trends to come off both the menswear and womenswear catwalks, the coloured suit is a wardrobe must for spring. Reds and rusts like those seen at Paul Smith will make sure you stand out from the sartorial crowd or go for softer pastel shades for the perfect summer look. We all love a man in soft colours.
The honest truth is that I would wear these outfits above if I could have them tailored to by body shape and size. Rihanna did just that in this Acne ensemble as you can see below. Prints, androgyny, effortless cool, she's got it all sorted with this look.
