These Are the Men’s Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2022 You Need to Know About

It is a common belief that following trends religiously means you are good at dressing. This is, in our humble opinion. Blindly following every seasonal trend is a recipe to poor style. It’s also an easy way for you to go bankrupt.

Your ability to distinguish between current trends and future classics is key to maintaining your sense of style. We’ve compiled a list of menswear trends worth adding to your wardrobe in an effort to help you get started.

These are the fashion trends for men in 2022: From the return to florals to the widening of the silhouettes,

Oversized Outerwear

In 2022, tailoring will not be the only thing that is going to get looser. Long parkas, long puffer jackets, and slouchy coats will all be in fashion as we move into winter. Particularly, oversized belted coats are worth your attention.

This trend is a great example of winter menswear’s ability to layer. You have a lot of options for layering, so you can be creative with the pieces beneath. This makes it a winner in my book.

WFH Cosiness

Although it’s impossible for us to predict where we will be in 10 months, there are still fluctuations in coronavirus restrictions. Luxurious loungewear and high-end house shoes will be in fashion.

Stocks, hoodies and slouchy shirts are all acceptable. This is the kind of clothing that borders at pyjama comfort, but won’t get your boss fired if you need to join an impromptu Zoom meeting with your boss.


The revival of fleece is indicative of a wider trend in menswear toward outdoor-inspired clothing. For many seasons, thick-pile retro fleeces have been a popular choice for standalone outerwear. Designers continue to incorporate more of this fabric into their fall/winter collections.

This trend is best enjoyed in small quantities. To avoid looking like a sheep, keep it to one fleece item per outfit. You can mix and match other textures to add texture to your cold-weather looks.


Leather will be a popular choice year after winter due to its timeless appeal, ruggedness, and good looks. It’s one of the best style investments you can make. A bomber jacket made from it will be a great choice. Although it won’t be cheap, the jacket will last for a lifetime. This winter is the perfect time to add one to your wardrobe. If you want to be on-trend, consider a model with a belted waist.

Textured tailoring

Once the cold season sets in, ditch the soft fabrics and see your tailored looks flourish. Tweed, wool, corduroy, and twill are great options for enhancing your style and adding character to any outfit.

It will not look as elegant as traditional tailoring so it is best to save it for dates, weddings, and other formal events.

Tech Jackets

Technical outerwear has been a major trend in fashion over the past few seasons. This trend will continue into the new year. It’s the cropped, zip up silhouettes that are taking center stage this season. They can be worn as a layer under your winter coat or as an easy way to add ballast and protection from the elements to your outfit.

The North Face, Canada Goose, and Woolrich will remain solid investments. However, it is worth looking out for smaller brands such as Crescent Down Works or Adsum as well as full-fledged outdoor brands such as Arc’teryx.

Relaxed Legs

Slim-fits and skinny legwear are disappearing. We are seeing a return of relaxed-fitted pants from the 1980s and 1990s. For the better part of a decade many of us have been wearing tight-fitting jeans for most of our lives. You might be surprised at how much you love a looser leg. It’s not only stylish, but also comfortable.

Chelsea Boots Commando-Soled

The boot is one of the most elegant and sleekest options. They are practical, but they become unpractical when there is a lot of rain or ice.

The commando-soled Chelsea boot is here. These thick, rugged soles are becoming more common in men’s shoes but they don’t make sense any more than here. This classic silhouette is well-equipped to withstand the cold. The added chunkiness also opens up your wardrobe options, allowing you to experiment with looser fittings and heavier layering.


Pinstripes were seen everywhere at the menswear events, whether it was large-sized suits or wide-leg pants. This is a welcome return to one of the most popular patterns in tailoring. Pinstriped suits are a fine choice if business casual is too casual.

A classic choice is the single breasted, but you can also go 1980s-style and get a double-breasted jacket featuring peak lapels. It’s true, tailoring is now full circle.


Checks are always in fashion. For the colder months in 2022, Black Watch tartan and buffalo are the best choices. These patterns can be incorporated into your everyday wardrobe in many ways, but the easiest is to use an overshirt or flannel shirt as the medium.

Plenty of pockets

It seems like a very long time ago that cargo pants were considered the pinnacle uncool. Pants with more pockets are less fashionable. This is a farce that was proven to be false this year.

The popularity of pockets is on the rise. Premium casualwear brands like Brunello Cucinelli or Barena have revived cargos and we are loving the extra storage. Multi-pocketted outerwear is also a trend from the most prominent names in the industry. Pockets are back and they will be here for good.


The trend of returning to the 1970s is one that has been a dominant theme for the past five years and will not be slowing down in 2022. It manifests itself in floral prints akin to grandma’s curtains for the spring/summer seasons. This is actually much more wearable than it sounds.

Everybody from Tom Ford to Burberry have been doing it, putting bold florals on shorts, vacation shirts, and tailoring. We recommend keeping your statement pieces to one and making sure the rest of your outfit is muted.

Bermuda Shorts

Short shorts are a favorite choice of many. D&G, Gucci, and a host of other high-fashion tastemakers are not for you. If their SS22 shows are any indication, it’s not. We will see the return of longer and wider shorts this season, echoing the larger shift in menswear that has been occurring for some time.

It is important to get it just right. You should aim for the top of your kneecap to be at least 2 inches. Choose tailored styles that can be worn with casual or more formal pieces.

Relaxed tailoring

As we enter the 2020s, our style preferences will shift to more relaxed silhouettes than slimmer, form-fitting ones. This style is a return to the 80s and 90s styles that have been in fashion for a while now. While it might not be for everyone, it can look amazing when done well.

We recommend that you visit your local tailor before you consider taking a long walk on the broad side. While relaxed cuts are flattering, they should only be properly fitted.

More Gorpcore

A few years ago, high fashion and the great outdoors started to flirt. They are now shouting out their love and adoring one another. It was dubbed ‘gorpcore’ by fashion journalists (gorp being a colloquial name for trail mix or ‘good old peanuts and raisins’). But whatever you call it, it seems like it will stay.

We’ve seen collaborations such as Palace x Arc’teryx or Gucci x The North Face in recent years, cementing fashion’s connection with outdoor gear. We recommend that you incorporate a few outdoor-inspired pieces into your outfits, rather than going all cosplay mountaineer.

Vertical Stripes

There are two reasons to embrace the vertical stripe trend: First, it looks great and allows you to experiment with prints in a sophisticated way. It can also reduce your body fat, making you look slimmer and taller. Styles with stripes of different widths are a bonus. If you prefer subtlety, stick with classic stripes or seersucker.

Get Nautical

Menswear has always looked to the seas as inspiration. For proof, just look at the peacoat. It’s set to rise to the top this year as Breton tops, fisherman beanies and other staples of dock-workers creep into mainstream men’s fashion.

This is a subgenre in workwear that fashion editors are now calling “shipster”! It’s not something you want to wear from head to foot, but a few key pieces here and there can help you get your wardrobe up-to-date.
