Vivid hues, flashy prints and New Balance kicks are energetic, on-trend and immediately conspicuous- even in a crowd thousands of revellers deep.
Let’s start by agreeing that whoever said that men shouldn’t or can’t wear colourful trousers was probably colour blind because if you think that coloured pants make you look any less of a man then you’ve seriously got it backwards. From celebrity hotshots, to athletes, to GQ’s best dressed, everyone is embracing this growing trend, correction style, and it’s about time you did too. This isn’t about jumping on a “trend” but rather embracing a style aesthetic that has been around for generations and North American needs to catch up.
Not matter the occasion, formal, business, social or casual, coloured trousers are easy to style and are guaranteed to help you stand out from the pack. Check out these great looks for inspiration on how you can incorporate this style in to your closet.
