2020 has been a year of uncertainty, stress, and plenty of time spent at home – but hey, at least we looked good doing it! Fall 2020 trends reflected a sense of power, reclaimed joy, and letting clothes do the talking when we cannot — because our masks are covering our mouths, of course! Let’s face it: we all know you’re planning on leaving much of 2020 behind, but here are the styles we recommend taking with you into 2021!

For the Love of Leather

There is nothing quite like a modern twist on a classic style. We are loving leather in all its forms: jackets, trenches, shoes, bags, and even pants. Coordinate an all-over leather look — trust us on this one — for a complete Vogue moment. Shop our favorite leather pieces with Zara, ASOS, and Vans.

Monochrome Madness

If you’re looking to make a statement, monochrome is a must. Coordinated color blocking reflects a pin sharp image, and your choice of a pop of color can fully bring out your personal style. Need some help finding the perfectly paired fits? boohooMan and Fashion Nova Men have the best looks to get the inspiration you need! 

Cool in Cardigans

Do some digging in Dad’s closet — cardigans are in! These cozy pieces are perfect for layering and adding depth, texture, and flare to your look. Don’t be afraid to button up! Here are some of our staple cardigan styles from summerhauls, Old Navy, and UNIQLO.

Red Hot

Down with the seasonal Fall and Winter greys and blacks, fiery red is the color to heat up your look in the winter months! We love a courageous pop that is sure to turn any ordinary garment into a bona fide statement piece. Be daring and weave a piece from Alfani or J. Crew into your core 2021 wardrobe.

Print, Print, Print!

This trend is not for the faint of heart, but is certainly for a man with style. All-over print is bold, but doable with the right colors, fit, and styling. We encourage you to get creative with your print choices, but if you need some advice, these options from ASOS and Fashion Nova Men should do the trick.

While 2020 has been a year like no other, its fashion trends have inspired us to boss up our closet game, even if it is just for our 11 AM Zoom calls. As 2021 approaches, we know you might be unsure of what’s to come, but we know with the right ‘fit, you can conquer anything. Bring on the new year!
