No one wants to be invited to a party looking like their wardrobe is stuck in 2018. While I champion reusing wardrobe staples, the party season calls for buying something new. That showstopper piece that will cement yourself as the best dressed guest at any event you attend.
To do this, you need to know what’s hot in the world of eveningwear. Here are five men’s eveningwear trends to get behind this season.
THE CAMEL BLAZER
Camel is no stranger to the autumn-winter colour palette seen predominately on overcoats. Why not extend this to a blazer. Style with a white shirt, cropped trousers and black patent shoes.
JEWEL TONED SUITS
This season’s dominant tailoring colour palette is the jewel tone. Think amethyst, ruby and emeralds. These monochrome looks will help you stand out of father crowd when guys typically gravitate to safe colours like black and navy. Style these jewel-tone suits with a white shirt and sneakers.
THE BLUE TUXEDO
Every guy should always have one badass tuxedo in their wardrobe as you never know when the black-tie invitation may come. Last season, white jackets and suede-like fabrics were trending. This season is about bending the dress code slightly, ditching the black and going for a dark blue. While simplistic, you can elevate your look by experimenting with the jacket cut and lapel shape.
THE DOUBLE BREASTED BLAZER
A single-breasted blazer might not be enough to wow the party audience, and if that happens, it’s time to pull out all the stops and go for the double. The silhouette is more tailored and figure-hugging, giving you a sartorial edge to your look.
THE VIBRANT COLOUR
To be the centre of attention, you have to wear a suit in the most unexpected colour. While regular guest will play it safe with navy, black and grey suit colours, you will be able to stand out with no trouble with a vibrant coloured suit.
Hopefully, these five evening trends will help you realise your perfect eveningwear look. What are some of your favourite men’s eveningwear trends?
