With the New Year it comes the promise of brand new trends that are set to shake up red carpets, from Hollywood to London, and beyond. For gents that want to stay up to the minute, we’ve put together a guide to channeling celebrity style in 2016. Read on for an overview of the hottest trends that are currently being sported, as well as some predictions that are sure to make an appearance in 2016.
Sterling silver chains
Accessories aren’t just for the ladies. In 2015 we’ve seen an increasing number of Hollywood hunks rocking ‘man jewellery’ that adds an extra element of cool to their outfits. Sterling silver chains for men are rapidly gaining popularity, with celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Ryan Gosling stepping out in subtle pieces. Think Positive has a stylish range of sterling silver men’s chains that will take wearers from the office to the weekend with ease. For those that prefer a chunkier look (a la British Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton) Think Positive also stocks heavier sterling silver chains for men with a little more grunt.
Flashback to the 50s
Vintage has been a popular choice over the past few years, and in 2016 the spotlight will be shining on the 1950s. Think bomber jackets, retro style shirts and dark wayfarers. The latest collections from high profile designers such as Raf Simons and Louis Vuitton are already channelling the 50s look, and the high street is set to follow suit!
It’s becoming increasingly acceptable for gents to sport higher and higher hemlines. Forget baggy pants that hang below the knees. In 2016 summer fashion will be all about shorts that are shorter and more tailored than ever. Prada and Gucci are pioneering the trend, with collections in an array of colours, prints and materials - perfect for casual summer days.
Complementing 50s attire will be the revival of 50s style hairdos, with the slicked back look on-track to become hugely popular. Modernised side parts have been spotted on catwalk models for Polo Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Oliver Spencer, Ermenegildo Zegna, Burberry and Prorsum. Textured pompadours will be all the rage in 2016, with short sides and voluminous top layers making for a preppy look.
