Menswear Trends: Retro Stylings

Many people say the second time around is better than the first. This is proven to be true with vintage clothing. People are always looking for something different from mainstream designs. Something that is unique. It is then up to designers to dust off previous trends and bring them back to life, but ensuring they are distinct.

Styling plays a huge role with bringing back retro trends. Alexander McQueen and Prada took wide collared shirts and paired them with white lined blazers. Marni also used a wide collared oxford and integrated it with an intricate pattern and an impeccably fitted blazer.
