THE ENRO GUIDE
Trends can be controversial. Some people say trends fade, others believe that the best ones never go out of style. We agree with the latter. If something makes you feel good when you wear it, then it never truly fades away or goes out of style.
With that being said, there are still new fashion trends for men to discover and add to your repertoire. How will you choose among so many options? Between the trends seen on the runway and everyday street style, it can be a lot to take in.
This Spring, we’ve selected our favorite men’s fashion trends for you that are sure to become a classic:
We predict you’ll be seeing a lot of stripes this season, specifically vertical ones. These are a great alternative for the classic horizontal stripe and can be seen on all types of clothing, from jackets to t-shirts and everything in between. We love how vertical stripes look on these non-iron dress shirts because it gives them a vintage feel. Wear one of these shirts with a nice pair of dress pants and you’ll feel unstoppable.
To avoid looking like you just walked out of a 90’s sitcom, try to stay away from heavily patterned or thick striped shirts. That’s the wrong kind of vintage look that you’re going for.
Corduroy has had a less than flattering reputation in past years, but this season it’s becoming the fabrication everyone is wearing. If you want to make a big statement with this trend, corduroy pants are just what you need. These navy and brown pairs are made for a classic fit, not too slim or baggy, for just the right look.
So what do you wear with corduroy pants? We like wearing them with a turtleneck and a coat layered on top. In warmer months, aim for a shirt with a similar weight as the pants to keep your outfit proportional.
Just like vertical stripes, check patterns are nothing new by any means. A nice checkered shirt is a timeless look, but be aware that the wrong print can be less than flattering. The best way to choose check patterns that look good on you is to always aim for clean, crisp lines that are not too busy. The simpler, the better. Additionally, make sure the rest of your look is toned down to make the focal point your patterned shirt.
If you’re looking to upgrade your dress shoe collection, try out a textured material instead of plain leather. It can add a little something to your look that could be missing without being overbearing. If you’re wary to try something too out there, start small with a material like suede and work your way up to a more bold texture. We love both of these styles pictured above by Aldo to get you started. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try an out of the box color instead of the typical black or brown shoe.

Over the last few years, more and more people are opting for a laid-back look in the office. They’re trading out stiff suits for button-ups with nice jeans, and swapping dress shoes with sneakers. Sure, you could follow the trend by wearing your favorite old t-shirt, comfy hoodie, and a pair of jeans everyday, but that doesn’t mean you should. It’s all about finding that happy medium of dressing your age, looking sharp, and staying comfortable.
These pieces are key for building casual attire for the office that will help you look and feel your best:
An Eye Catching Shirt
Make casual fitting shirts a go-to when you’re in the mood for a button-down so you can focus on the real decision: to tuck or to untuck? The deep purples and blues in this shirt give off a relaxed feeling, making this perfect to throw on with a pair of chinos and call it a day. If you’re feeling extra fancy, add a light colored sport coat in the mix.
These everyday pants are great for dressing up or dressing down with a t-shirt and sneakers. Additionally, the top-notch tailored pleats add a classic touch that never goes out of style. Try choosing some in a neutral color like this navy pair for endless versatile looks. Your closet will thank you for this one.
Sporty Dress Shoes
Switch out your sneakers for a nice pair of dress shoes with a sporty twist, like these oxfords with a colored rubber sole by Steve Madden. It helps keep the look more casual without overdoing it. The rubber soles are perfect for men on the go and will take you from your morning meeting to happy hour after work. You’ll want one in every color.
Statement Leather Watch
A bold watch is the accessory you need to make a statement in your look, like this one by Nixon. The brown leather band paired with the navy face and rose gold accents give a unique look that your coworkers will notice. It’s a great piece for wearing with a plain outfit to let the watch shine through and bring life to your look. By adding an accessory like this one, you can help prevent any outfit that’s on the brink of becoming too casual.
From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., a stylish workbag is ideal for holding everything you need for the day ahead of you. This bag by Fossil is spacious and can fit all the essentials, including a compartment for your laptop. The brown leather trim goes nicely with the dark gray canvas material and adds a masculine touch. Turns out stylish tote bags are great for men, too.
A Nice Tie
A 100% silk tie in a nice, solid color goes great with a patterned dress shirt as its backdrop. Wear it with a fitted blazer, a good pair of straight leg jeans and leather boots to complete the look. Are you more of a patterned tie kind of man? Subtle patterns are equally as great for any look when paired with a solid colored dress shirt.

Fall is here. There is no fabric that is more associated with Fall than corduroy, and there is no item more associated with Corduroy than a nice pair of corduroy pants. If jeans or khakis are your go-to work pants, you need to try the fall/winter alternative. Known for its durability, corduroy is perfect for cold weather...
During Greek and Roman civilizations purple was often considered as a sign of royalty due to its rarity as a color. In fact, Julius and Augustus Caesar, Emperors of Rome, both decreed that only the Emperor could wear purple. When Nero became Emperor, the wearing of purple and even the sale of purple, outside of the Caesars, was punishable by death!
