There is no doubt that men have started experimenting much more with clothes and fashion than they used to even a few years ago. Naturally, men’s clothing has also started incorporating this variety from fashion shows and high-end stores to flea markets and e-commerce sites.
Even accessories have become a large part of men’s wardrobes, either adding new elements or giving a new spin to classics like men’s watches. Men have gotten much more adventurous than they used to with their sense of style.
They are no longer afraid to step out of their comfort zone or look to places other than the men’s section for clothing inspiration.
With fall coming up, new trends are cropping up in fall fashion. What is even more surprising is that many fashion elements of yesteryear are making a strong comeback into the scene. This is evident across every fashion zone, but especially in men’s fall fashion.
Big brands are reviving variety and color in the men’s clothing section and other clothing stores are promptly following suit as men are ramping up their style game and walking in step with women.
As they flaunt their impeccable sense of style, here are a few trends that are going to be at the forefront of men’s fall fashion in 2021.
1) Jackets And Coats In New Styles
No fall wardrobe is complete without classy coats and jackets. These versatile pieces of clothing add a whole new dimension to any look. But this year, jackets and coats are appearing on the runway and the road in a whole new avatar.
New styles, fits, cuts, and drapes have turned coats and jackets into more than classic outerwear. Oversized and over-the-top jackets have taken over the fall racks.
Not only that but different classes of style are also being born from the obsession with coats. For example, the bathrobe is coming up in fashion weeks as a proponent of the spay day-chic look.
2) Classic Autumn Colors
We all associate autumn with a certain warm, earthy, muted yet vibrant color palette dominated by reds, oranges, yellows, browns, and any and every combination of these with each other or other colors.
As the year rolls into autumn, men’s clothing is also shifting to this color palette. Warm browns, sandy hues, flaming reds, flirty oranges, muted greens, washed-out blues, comforting greys, and even shocking pink is making an appearance in the world of men’s fall fashion.
Offset by brighter, heartier hues that were popular in the last few decades, we are seeing a complete riot of colors in men’s fashion this year.
3) Experimenting With Fabrics
Men are finally giving fabrics other than the same old cotton, silk, and wool a chance. Playing around with fabrics produces some amazing results when translated into ingenious designs. After all, no one can deny the allure of a leather jacket.
Flannel men’s shirts are still the epitome of ‘cottage core’ fall fashion. Linen men’s shirts are quickly becoming a greater symbol of classiness combined with comfort and style than other options.
Fleece is turning into somewhat of a fashion staple for men’s hoodies and sweatshirts. Fleece is popular for plain t-shirts too. And no fabric screams vintage fashion like corduroy, be it in trousers or jackets.
4) Comeback Of Casual Outerwear
Casual outerwear is making a strong comeback this year and in more styles than there used to be. You name it and there is a trend for it among the fashion-forward folks.
Men’s hoodies and sweatshirts, cardigans, puffer jackets, varsity jackets, sweater vests, bomber jackets, and even bolero jackets and shrugs are working their way back into men’s fashion.
While men’s hoodies and sweatshirts never really went out of fashion, still yet, the demand for these outerwear clothes is increasing for a casual chic look. People are layering different types of men’s shirts and t-shirts with a variety of outerwear to create multiple looks from a few pieces of clothing while staying cozy in autumn.

5) Casual Shirts
It seems to be almost a trend for old styles of men’s clothing to take the stage in new fits and forms. And, men’s shirts are a prime example of that. There was a time when women were raiding the closets of the men in their lives to find the perfect oversized shirt to go with their jeans, skirts, dresses, or whatever they were pairing it with.
But it seems like this fall, men have picked up the obsession for loose fits too. Extra-long and extra-large t-shirts are suddenly all the rage come fall. Even correctly-sized shirts are taking on a looser fit, including formal ones.

6) Polo Necks And Polo Shirts
Men’s shirts are seeing changes not just in the fit department but in the neckline department too. It is not that new necklines are being discovered but rather, the existing ones are getting an OTT (Over The Top) makeover.
For example, polo neck or turtleneck shirts are getting a spin with really long necks that sit folded tight on the neck or loose over the shoulders.
Meanwhile, polo shirts are making an appearance not only in their authentic form but also with exaggerated, quirky collars and bold prints and designs. People are even cozying up more to the idea of polo neck shirts and polo shirts underneath blazers for a formal or semi-formal look.
7) Caps And Balaclavas
Ever since Big Hero 6’s Tadashi donned the baseball cap, people have been rushing to emulate the same casual, nerdy look of the hip and genius scientist. But that is not the only type of caps that are popular this fall.
Beanies, bucket hats, berets, newsboy hats, flat caps, snapbacks, and everything in between are being flaunted on the heads of stylish men.
But that is not all as another niche piece of clothing for the head and face that people have seemed to start favoring a lot are balaclavas. The advantage of balaclavas is that they simultaneously make you look cool and protect your face and head from dust and sun.
8) Bold Textures With Bold Prints
We will not talk about bold prints here, as they keep returning every few years. What is making a surprise reappearance this year are bold and exaggerated patterns and textures.
The most prominent among these has to be knitwear textures of various kinds that are seamlessly blended with clever patterns to give an all-new look to an otherwise dull outfit.
Cable-knit, rib-knit, jersey, interlock, French terry, and fleece knit are the most prominent comebacks among these. But they are not the only ones. Quilted, tweed, velvet, and jacquard on rich fabrics are giving a whole new dimension to classic, high-couture looks.
9) Oversized, Boxy Trousers
If you thought shirts were the only men’s clothing that got the oversized treatment, you were wrong. Trousers are also going in that direction. In fact, one quite common look on the runway for many fashion brands was the casual pajama look with oversized shirts and pants.
Some of these pants would even have a flared bottom that gathered at the feet. This look might be a bit difficult to pull off if you are in a hurry and do not want to end up face-first on the ground.
That is why other loose fits are also going around equally strong like jogger pants, samurai pants, harem and dhoti pants, slouch pants, wide-leg trousers, and more, whatever the designer can come up with.
Covered shoes are the order of the day, with high boots ruling the ramp. Military boots are quite the rage this fall, with the look of loose pants cinched at the bottom by the boot being an absolute favorite of the fashion-conscious.
But boots in more styles than one are putting their feet forward. Sneakers are becoming more than the go-to jogging shoes of the boomer generation: the youngsters are making a casual formal statement with them.
Similarly, wellingtons are no longer just shoes to protect your feet during the rain; they have a fashion purpose now.
11) Accessorize With Watches
Men’s watches have always been a canvas to show off the vibe of a person.
Do you want a workout vibe? Do you want a formal look? Do you want to go casual chic? Or, Do you want to make your outfit more festive?
In any of the cases, you can take a simple, plain, old outfit to the next level, and give it a certain look with the simple addition of the right men’s watch.
Sleek or chunky, there is no better way to accessorize your look than with an eye-catching watch that will level up your look.
