If you came here after googling “men’s fashion trends 2021,” we must confess: it’s an odd moment to be trend forecasting! Between the sluggish speed of vaccine rollout and the late-January chill, there aren’t a lot of public platforms for getting clothes off, making it difficult to gauge what people are truly wearing right now or what—if any—true-blue trends are sprouting and blossoming naturally.
So, instead of any truly defining capital-M Menswear Fashion Trends 2021, we’re gifting you with an unusual collection of stuff Teeanime are really feeling right now. We want to wear new things, old things we’ve been wearing forever, and strange things that make us happy. It’s a lot less surefooted and cohesive than last year’s list of men’s fashion trends, which makes sense: this is a much less surefooted and cohesive period, and these are the feel-good men’s clothes styles that are getting us through the day. Hopefully, they’ll assist you as well.
