Words: L. Thorpe

When it comes to men’s fashion, while some trends fade, there are some styles that will always be classics. For example, a tailored suit, a dress shirt and a classic T-shirt are all wardrobe essentials that’ll forever stay in style.

While wearing this season’s colour trends is important, there’s something else to consider. Wearing the right colours to complement your skin tone and your style are both important factors to make sure you’re feeling confident and comfortable.

Just like men’s fashion trends, different colours are in at different times of the year, usually split into autumn/winter (A/W) and spring/summer (S/S). That’s why you’ll see fashion shows named in this way and why you’ll see similar colour palettes across different shows and shops.

What colours are in this autumn and winter?

There are some key colours to keep an eye on when it comes to men’s fashion trends in A/W ’22. Neutrals always look good, and go with everything, so wearing your classic colour ways like greys, cream, white, black and brown never really goes out of style.

The reality is, you can wear whatever colour you want, and it’s important to wear the colours that you feel good in. If you want to keep it more focused on trends this autumn and winter, or you want to add a splash of on-trend colour in there, here are the colours you need to pick up:

  • Deep and bright blues. Whether you go for something dark. muted and moody or something bright, bold and electric, it’s official: men’s fashion has the blues (in a good way) this season. A blue suit can make a big difference from black or navy, especially if yuo go for subtle check patterns and pair it with a lightweight jumper. Prefer something a little more subtle? Try a blue tie for a nod to this trending colour.
  • Light baby blues. Opt for periwinkle pieces and light blue shades across your wardrobe for a seasonal look that’s ideal for cold, crisp winter mornings. It’s a great colour to match with black, white and grey. Add an easy pop of blue with the pale blue overshirt, or a super soft blue merino wool roll-neck jumper.
  • Nature-inspired greens. You’ll see a range of forest-toned hues in men’s clothing this season. Whether it’s fresh, light greens, muted mossy tones or rich blue-greens that evoke the sea, it’s official: greens are in. This colour works surprisingly well for trousers so whether you go for some green linen trousers or a pair of green chinos for a more laid back take on the green look.
  • All about orange. Rich, warm oranges are always autumnal and this year is no different with bright orange, muted tobacco shades, rich corals and mustard tones are all at the fashion forefront this season. A camel flannel gilet will keep you warm and on trend this season, while a peach pique polo shirt can be the perfect compromise if you don’t want to go too bold.

How to wear A/W fashion trends?

When it comes to knowing which colours suit you, sometimes the best way is to just try on some colours, especially ones that you wouldn’t usually choose. You might get a surprise.

Most people have warm or cool undertones to their skin, while some people are neutral. There are no rules, but in general people with cool undertones suit bright jewel tones, cool grey colours, white, blues and sea-greens. They also usually look better in silver jewellery and accessories.

People with warm undertones look good in earthy tones, orange, brown, off-white, yellow and rust-coloured tones. Gold is usually the metal of choice for people with warm undertones as it tends to be more flattering on their skin.

Neutral undertones look good in different shades but should check out brighter colours first as these might not always suit them. Teal, true red and darker purple tends to look good on everyone, whatever your skin’s undertones are.

Although trends can be a great way to upgrade your style, it’s important to stick with what suits you and what you feel the most comfortable and confident in. There’s no point in ticking off every trend if you’re never actually going to wear them.
