Thursday, 30 January 2014

As we look forward to the New Year, new choices, newer options it’s time to update our wardrobes and follow on with the latest trends.

Year 2014 looks promising for fashionable men ever more with newer fashion weeks dedicated only to menswear have emerged. At A Quaint Perspective, we observe that men are sporting bolder colors and embracing newer silhouettes. Fashion is fun again. Here’s lowdown on the upcoming trends for coming year.

Key Trends

Casual meets Formal

Casual meets formal look, note the denim jacket with kerchief in pocket detail

Pairing a formal jacket with casual trousers is a trend none of you must miss out on. Borrowing from the formals dressing will be major trend in the coming seasons for men. Add a bow-tie to a casual shirt, a formal jacket to a pair of denims. You can wear a colorful printed pocket square with a formal suit and team it up with a tee. This is a playful trend where one can choose to be as experimental or as conservative one wishes to.


Make sure the jacket is a clean classic one in a darker tone. Select a classic two button with a single vent in back and medium width lapels.

Do try and mix various textures in the same color tones.

You really need to be careful of the vibrancy or intensity of the colors you are matching.


Do not go for overtly stylized jackets.

Avoid wearing too many colors at once.

Social settings allow you to branch out and be a little more adventurous while in the workplace and functions surrounding them, a sharper and professional look is recommended.

Don’t wear a striped shirt with a striped pocket square or bow tie.

Denims are back

The most universally accepted style staples denims are back.

After the riot of colors in the last few seasons in the bottom wear the denims make a comeback. The best part is that they suit all body types ages and is one of  


Trousers/Denims get more fitted bordering on the skinny fit. Teaming up with a shirt untucked is the look to sport for a younger look. The one big advantage of the trend is that it makes you look slimmer and adds to your height.

Try printed chinos/denims, try colors, try different washes, just ensure it complements you.

Roll up the hem of the trousers/denims up to the ankles for a more edgy look.

Wear them with formal shoes with the no socks look, the key is to get yourself foot-lets, which are socks that are not visible outside your shoes.


If you are top heavy avoid too skinny options, instead choose slim pants.

Don’t tuck in your tees.

The shirt/tee should ideally end midway of your fly.

Patterns and Prints

the Insurgence or prints for men, from ditsy to geometric to floral to quirky

Another of my favorite trend is the insurgence or prints for men, from ditsy to geometric to floral to quirky. It could be a shirt, a pair of chinos, T-shirt or even sock prints are everywhere. Adding a print or pattern to your wardrobe is fun and can be as loud or subtle as you would want it to be.

Have fun with prints but mixing more than two would be a risk.


Moving away from the bright colours, 2014 brings in powdered shades of our staples with Indigo as the prime colour to focus on.


At A Quaint Perspective, we think Hats could be the new addition to your wardrobe to lift up your look. Choose from the Trilby or the Bowler currently sported by Amir Khan for Dhoom3.

When it comes to accessories in order to keep it stylish one needs to be careful as not to overdo or over complicate. Bring out your individuality by wearing what appeals to you and keep it simple. Although accessories are considered to be generic, the appeal lies in the way you choose your clothes, accessories and put them together. 

Happy 2014!
