One of the biggest trends in menswear for 2017 is utility style clothing. Think practical garments with added zip and pocket features teamed with earthy colours. To stay on top of style take a leaf out of Valentinos book and look out for colours such as khakis, creams and stones as well as bold checked patterns. With this trend we will see boundless choices of jackets; something which men of all ages will need as the seasons begin to change! These will include formal tailored jackets featuring tweed and heavy wools; perfect for pre SS17 when the weather is often brisk as the months beforehand, as well as more casual alternatives such as the parka.
Top Tip : One of the easiest ways to get a hit of utility in your wardrobe without breaking the bank is to grab yourself some camo! Camo products will be easily accessible on the high-street and will give you the versatility to team the products with more causal items such as denim or even some lounge wear which will be already hiding in your wardrobe!

Leather will be making a big come back in 2017 with the re-emergnce of the “punk” trend ; think skinny shirts , ripped detailing and tartan patterns which also swept the Coach runway.
