It’s a widespread myth that following patterns diligently equates to successful dressing. This, in our view, is not the case. The ability to distinguish between fads and long-term trends is crucial to maintaining sartorial self-respect.
And, to help you get started, we’ve put together a beautifully curated list of menswear trends worth adding to your wardrobe this year.
These are the men’s fashion patterns to watch in 2021, from the revival of florals to the ongoing expansion of silhouettes.
One of the overarching themes of the last five years has been a regression to the 1970s, and it shows no signs of slowing down this year.
From Tom Ford to Burberry, bold florals have appeared on skirts, holiday jackets, and tailoring, among other things. However, we recommend sticking to one statement piece per dress and, as usual, leaving the remainder of your ensemble simple and subdued.

Camp collar shirts
Camp collar shirts have been around for many years, so you can be confident they aren’t just a fashion statement. The simple, lapel-style collar provides a subtle focal point to an otherwise unremarkable dress, providing a subtle focal point to bring a look together. Perfect for a light lunch at a beachside restaurant when paired with fitted swim shorts.
In any way, shape, or type, checks are still in style. There are many ways to incorporate these designs into your everyday wardrobe, but one of the most straightforward is with the use of a flannel shirt. A checked shirt, worn alone or over a vest or tee, is the easiest way to own it in the style stakes next summer.
Big and bold Bermuda shorts
Bermuda shorts are becoming more common on the runways around the world. Shorts were tailored in shades of seafoam, lilac, and candyfloss at Casablanca, MSGM, and Zegna, while designs dominated at Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci.

Choose a pair that finishes just above the knee and make a statement about your boots if you want to rock your own Bermudas next year.
Splash of pastels
We’ve said it before, and we’ll repeat it: pastels work for Spring. If you’re not sporting dusty rose, Dijon mustard, and periwinkle next season, you’re doing it wrong.
Please pay close attention to this important trend; it’s heading our way. These vests, which are typically worn over the top of your suit, give you an immediate boost of confidence and can quickly complete your look.
It’s all about presenting yourself, so choose an accessory with pockets, zips, or a bold design. Stick to colours of grey, khaki, or brown to maintain the military vibe.
