Take a look below at some of the top trends for men’s fashion for 2019, and stay ahead of the crowd by incorporating some of these cool pieces in your wardrobe!

Short shorts

Vogue Magazine recently listed short shorts as one of their top trends for 2019, so don’t be surprised if this year cuts get higher and higher, with influencers leading the pack. Aspiring actor and basketball player Gab Lagman is part of the BNY Jeans family and has been photographed looking effortlessly cool and beach-ready in short shorts. Guys who want to cop that easygoing tropical vibe in the city would do well to follow his example. Don’t be too afraid of showing off your legs — there’s no better time to expand your horizons than the start of the year.

Old school cool has been a mainstay over the last few seasons, and it looks like it’s still going strong. The Guardian reveals items like bucket hats and vintage jeans are going to be an essential part of your wardrobe for at least the next year. Experiment with all the different styles the 80s and 90s have to offer, such as white socks and chunky shoes, and keep the nostalgia wave going strong.

Men’s bags

2018 saw the revival of the fanny pack, and luckily for guys who carry a lot of stuff, it seems that men’s bags will continue to be a key focus in 2019 menswear. Many runways over the last year saw a variety of bag accessories for men — fanny packs, shoulder bags, and handbags — and the repertoire just keeps growing. The Cut suggests neck wallets are the new fanny packs, and now keeping all your things together in one place is as portable as ever.


It looks like 2019 is all about letting loose, and as GQ Magazine reports even your feet aren’t going to be left out of the fun. Guys who are tired of chasing after the latest sneaker trends can rejoice because it looks like strappy hiking sandals are going to be the perfect laid-back alternative. These walking sandals add a bohemian flair to your outfit, and they can come in anything from leather to canvas. Add a pair into your wardrobe for those days when you just want to take it easy.

Bold patterns

Patterns are definitely still in, and the bolder, the better. Fashion is the best opportunity to express yourself, and what better way to do it than by going all out with your patterns? 2019 is the year of the clash, so get in on the trend by layering different designs on top of each other. Whether it’s a dense design or bright neon colors, insert some vibrancy into your life and have fun with your style this year.
