Top 5 Men’s Suits Trends for 2015
Whether you are looking for a wardrobe makeover with a new suit for work, an event or a wedding you will be looking sharp and polished in 2015 by following the 5 simple below.
1) Shorter Suit Jacket- A slimmer and trimmer look is on trend for 2015. When trying on jackets you should be able to cup your hands under the back of the jacket otherwise it is too long. Add a pocket square to any jacket as it brings your eye to your chest rather than tummy ) you have overindulged during the holiday season!)
2) Tieless- Its not uncommon for the modern workplace to embrace a less formal look with no tie and an open shirt. So can you look polished without a tie? This year if you are looking for an alternative to a tie, to achieve a more polished look, go for a full button up mode sans tie.
3) Weekend tailoring – This is about blurring the lines of formal and weekend wear. Forget a collar and try layering a crew or v-neck tee under a tailored suit. To sharpen the look add a silk scarf . This can be teamed with either leather shoes or casual loafers. This was a big look for Canali 2015.
4) Blue is the new black in formal wear.
Invest in a blue suit. This year black and grey just wont cut it. This colour can also be worn as suit separates. Team the jacket with neutral trousers or the suit with a white tee for a casual look.
5) Double breasted
This is a powerful statement and not for everyone but it continues to make its mark A timeless cut that has been adapted for the modern market, with a slimmer cut, softer shoulder and armholes cut higher.
It is better suited to a leaner shape as it creates width but if you have the build this style can create the ideal male shape – Broad shoulders and narrow waist and portray confidence and style.
Tips for suit fitting: Make sure the suit jacket hugs your shoulders and does not slouch off them. Most men go up a size when they DO need to
Your jacket should contour to your body. Have a tailor nip it at the sides. This will accentuate your shoulders—whether you’ve got strong ones or not.
Your pants should just clip the tops of your shoes, not drape up over them.
