In an era where everything is changing – from changing work culture to changing lifestyle –in as far as men are concerned, one major trend of 2019 reflects the transformative mood, mixedwith the nostalgic air of the 70s and the 80s, and that is in the shirts men wear.
For silhouettes, there will be a sharp rise of tailored, shaped, well cut, suited-up look as well as there will be oversized, shoulder dropping shirts with the re-imagined style of classic 80s! An inclination to embrace the colour Pink in moderate hues will be seen.
Major Design Players
The major design players will be detailing. In 2019, expect to see a lot of the suited-up conference room look with a design details like the Eton collar, the Camp-collar and the French cuﬀ. The ‘carry over double look’ i.e. a look which can easily be carried over from work to an after-oﬃce party or simply to a tinder date, will be extremely popular!
Twin or multiple pocket shirts will see a major comeback, as will the oriental ‘kurta-shirt’ and mandarin collar. All will be seen in abundance with interesting styling. The jumpsuit looks of the 80s will continue. Expect experimental folks to indulge in a bit of skin show with clever semi-transparent shirts ala the Dior collection.
The Hues of 2019
The prominent colors will be pink, sage, hues of brown/ earthy, powder blue, denim blue, silver, white and of course, the rockstar classic black. In case of prints, 2019 and beyond will see lots of pinstriped shirts, formal to casual everywhere. The sophisticated chequered look will be prominent in Dior, Tom Ford and Todd Snyder collections. Scribbles, camouflage print and statement print with brand names will also play important roles in the upcoming 2019 shirt trends for men.
Another style statement will be jacket shirts in corduroy or suede or cotton travel shirt like the Shift collection, or simply tailored cotton jackets which can be worn over shirts or over tees.
