Fall 2017 Fashion Trends For Him

When the weather starts¬†to cool, the nights get darker a bit earlier and my children start to crunch the leaves on the ground, it all means one thing… Fall is inevitable! ¬†I am a summer lover and am always sad to see it end, but one of the things I do love about Fall is the clothing (and Pumpkin Spice everything!!!) ¬†I sometimes feel like the men get a bit ripped off when it comes to fashion, as us women have so much variety in our wardrobes. ¬†This Fall may be the exception though… the clothing for men is looking pretty fun! ¬†Below I have summarized a few of the trends I believe you are going to be noticing in men’s fashion this Fall. ¬†Now it is up to you guys to see how adventurous you are feeling ūüôā

Quilted Coats:

This isn’t a new trend but will still be going strong for this Fall. ¬†I think we will notice more colourful options as opposed to the standard black and grey. ¬†Such a warm and stylish option for outerwear!

Quilted.jpgOne: Black Diamond Quilted Jacket *   Two: Burgundy Quilted Jacket *  Three: Midnight Blue Quilted Jacket

Fur Collared Jackets:

I love the look of faux fur or shearling on the coat collar!  Adds some interest and texture to the jackets.

FurOne: Flight Jacket with Faux Fur Collar  * Two: Olive Faux Shearling Jacket  * Three: Faux Shearling Camel Jacket

Graphic Sweaters:

Graphic shirts have been everywhere this year.  The graphic T-shirts from Spring & Summer will continue and be transitioning into fun knitwear for the cooler months.

graphicsweaterOne: Parachute Sweater *  Two: Alien Sweater *  Three: Motel Sweater

Turtleneck Sweaters:

Again turtlencks are not a new Fall trend, but this year the collars are a bit thicker and more exaggerated than some past years.  A cold weather classic.

TurtleneckSweaterOne: Wool-Blend Turtleneck * Two: Cotton-Blend Turtleneck * Three: Chunky Knit Turtleneck

90’s inspired:

Retro has been huge the last couple of seasons. ¬†This year is no exception and 90’s style sweatshirts are popping up everywhere!

90sInspiredOne: Vintage Fila * Two: Tommy Hilfiger Crew Neck * Three: Adidas Original


Not just the usual shirts and pants, but entire tailored, corduroy suits will be making an appearance this season.

cordsOne: Pigment Dyed Shirt *  Two: Modern Fit Pants * Three: Corduroy Blazer

Foliage Colours: 

Clothing this Fall will be coloured the same as the leaves falling from the trees.  Lots of camel, moss & olive-green and bright orange will be huge this year.

FoliageOne: Thermal Crew-Neck *  Two: Olive Chino * Three: Camel V-Neck Sweater

Silk Shirts:

A continuation of the vibrant prints from this summer will be continuing into Fall. (Think Bruno Mars 24K Magic!)  You can add a pop of interest with the collar sticking out from underneath a sweater or worn with a basic suit.

silkshirtOne: Tropical Foliage * Two: Scalloped Seashells * Three: Polka Dot

What do you think of these Fall 2017 trends for men?  I think that they are pretty interesting! Some classic and others a bit more out there.  Looking forward to seeing if my predictions come true!

Thank you for reading!
