The street style patrons have cleared out of SoHo, the designers have returned back to their design rooms—New York Fashion Week: Men’s is officially over. And now with the shows, presentations, and festivities finally behind us, it’s about time for a little reflection on what we saw. From unstructured parkas to street style inspired hoodies, here are the 10 biggest trends coming out of New York Fashion Week: Men’s spring/summer 2017.
Oversized, Unstructured Outerwear
Get ready for the full-cut and drapery attire. Kanye tried to tell you; the move towards loose and unstructured fitted clothing has been happening now for the past couple of seasons, and now more than ever it’s more apparent with coats and parkas of this season’s s/s 2017.
Tunics and Pullovers
To follow the unstructured trend, probably the most unstructured of clothing trends by designers is the tunic. Whether in jacket or shirt form, longer pullovers were all over the runway.
Satin and Sheen
From jackets and shirts to even trousers, satin was a popular choice of fabric for designers this season.
This trend has been popular since last season; in fact nearly every designer included one of these dope jackets in their collections.
Apparently athleisure wear doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon, because tracksuits were a major staple of this seasons collections. From new innovative patterns and designs to the classic fit, a wide variety was showcased at fashion week.
Usually spring/summer collections are known to be colorful and full of life and ambience, but this year it was all about the beiges, greys, whites and olives.
If it was one single accessory that popped on the runways this year it was definitely the belt. Whether on trousers, over even joggers statement belts were the rage.
Street style continued to influence luxury brands and designers to up their game and popularity by incorporating hoodies, in fact this season had a heavy presence of the street style hoodies.
Not only are the trousers getting baggier but the hems are as well. This seasons runways were filled with the new style, which is a complete opposite of last years slim fit approach.
Work wear/Military Influences
Military and work wear inspired clothing was in heavy rotation on the runways as well. Utilizing tonal palettes like olive green, burgundy, navy blue, and beige was all over the scene fashion week.
