Men’s AW20 Trends – Look 1
A year that will go down in the history books, 2020 has ushered in a sequence of precarious living like we’ve never experienced before and we’re sure many of you found yourselves stuck at home on furlough over the spring / summer period.

Whatever the circumstances, getting back into a routine and returning to the office can undoubtedly feel challenging, which is why this first outfit uncovers a harmonious balance between nonchalant dressing and work-place appropriateness.

Doubling-up on layers ensures the upper ensemble is warm enough for the journey in and out of work while the mix of smart and casual means this look can take you from A to B seamlessly. White Axel Arigato Clean 90 trainers and neutral, turned-up trousers further elevate the fusion of suave, laid-back styling.

For the man that’s always on the go, this next look takes note of your hectic day-to-day schedule while still encouraging you to take pride in your own personal style. Here to stay, the utility trend is as prevalent now as it ever has been.

The initial look is then topped off with a waterproof Patagonia tote bag for keeping all your possessions safely stored, paired alongside a front buckle fastening for heavy-duty edge.
The lower-half of the outfit leans on khaki Kenzo cargo pants, detailed traditionally with a multitude of pocket space and a loose fit while Nike Blazer Mid 77’s sign off in retro Swoosh style.

- Norse Projects Wave Logo Sweatshirt, £129
