Updating your Autumn/Winter is no easy feat. As the new season beckons, we look to the new season to bring us fresh men’s styles. From puffer jackets to preppy ensembles and millennial pink, we explore the trends we’re currently loving.
Summer is officially over. As cooler days and dark nights slowly start to creep their way in, we look to the season ahead for our sartorial style inspiration. Speaking exclusively with the Fenwick buying department, we have the inside scoop for the men’s trends we can’t get enough of. From preppy ensembles inspired by the likes of [Polo Ralph Lauren](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/brands/polo-ralph-lauren), unexpected denim revivals and weather-resistant [puffer jackets](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/coats-and-jackets/padded); we’ve rounded up the top men’s trends we’re currently loving.
#### Puffer Jackets
Looking cool whilst feeling warm has never been easier than with a [puffer jacket](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/coats-and-jackets/padded). With insulated padding forming defined seams all over, this voluminous construction offers stylish layering on even the dreariest of days. A contemporary alternative to a classic [mac](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/coats-and-jackets/raincoats-and-macs), it’s the ideal choice for the modern gentleman influenced by men’s street style. From contrasting lining for an added pop of colour to removable hoods, say goodbye to the idea that winter dressing equates to boring fashion.
If you gravitate towards refined over rugged dressing, the preppy trend is for you. Classic with a collegiate aesthetic, this trend originally comes from high ranking American society mixed with quintessential British influences overtime. Full of [cable knit jumpers](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/sweatshirts-and-knitwear/jumpers), tailored [chinos](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/trousers-and-shorts/trousers) and button-down [shirts](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/shirts); look to heritage labels such as [Polo Ralph Lauren](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/brands/polo-ralph-lauren) and [Tommy Hilfiger](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/brands/tommy-hilfiger) for the building blocks of your arsenal. For fashion freshman dipping their style savvy toe, an invitation to a smart-casual event is the perfect opportunity to test the waters.
#### The Denim Suit
No longer seen as a fashion faux pas or a couples’ fancy dress theme circa Britney and Justin in 2001; double [denim](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/search/?q=denim&prefn1=department&prefv1=Men) is the ultimate style underdog we can’t help but root for. For men who love to break fashion boundaries and make a statement whilst doing so, this is for you. Retro in its influence but modern in delivery, pair denim washes of the same shade together; keeping things neutral with a plain [tee](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/t-shirts). Alternatively, keep things fun by mixing lighter washes with darker ones.
Long associated as a colour worn on baby girls, men’s clothing has seen a pink revival in recent years- and rightly so. Whether a preppy collegiate influence is your thing, or you run with the street style crowd; since being awarded Pantone Colour of The Year in 2016, this stylish shade has been seen up and down runways ever since. From laidback weekend [jumpers](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/sweatshirts-and-knitwear/jumpers) to smart [shirts](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/shirts) for the office, think pink for a hue which transcends fashion sub-cultures and gender. Keeping a trusty pair of [denim jeans](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/jeans) as the staple, opt for a preppy [Oxford shirt](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/shirts) during the day, then switch for an oversized [sweater](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/sweatshirts-and-knitwear/sweatshirts) in the evening.
#### Faded Denim
What’s that noise? It’s the 90s calling, only this time we’re picking up. Another men’s trend enjoying a fashion revival is faded [denim](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/jeans). Authentic and vintage inspired in its design, faded [denim](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/jeans) harps back to a time of cool rock stars and nonchalant Hollywood actors. Perhaps not for those who seek something more formal and refined, faded [denim](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/jeans) is perfect for the man who exudes a contagiously cool vibe. Wear yours with a relaxed cotton [T-shirt](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/t-shirts), branded [logo tee](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/t-shirts/logo) or a relaxed [sweatshirt](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/men/clothing/sweatshirts-and-knitwear/sweatshirts).
