Our Favorite Men’s Spring Fashion Trends Of 2024

Spring is here — it’s the best time of the year! And as the weather flows along, so do our wardrobes. So, let’s put all those chunky Winter sweaters and puff jackets in storage. Now’s the time to focus on more weather-appropriate fits with lighter prints, short sleeves, and breezy fabrics.

When it comes to any seasonal wardrobe switch-up, the most important factor as you scope out new clothes is to go with styles that align with your personality. For instance, if you identify as eccentric and counter-culture, don’t fill your closet with drab beige polos simply because it’s on-trend right now. And if your persona is more straight-laced and serious, don’t feel the pressure to rock a bejeweled blazer just because it’s the in-look.

In terms of fashion, it’s good to look inward and go with what makes you the most comfortable. Which styles feel the most authentic to you? Which basics, businesswear, and accessories serve as the greatest forms of self-expression for your unique personality? The options are endless, and the best part is that you don’t have to stick to one style.

So, let’s dive into the most notable trends we’re seeing for Spring 2024. From minimalist fits to gender-bending statement pieces, this season is brimming with more diverse fashion trends than ever before.

We’re Going Straight Into the Wild Wild West

Beyonce just released her highly-anticipated country album, “Country Carter.” Bella Hadid is officially dating a cowboy. The reality show McBee Dynasty: Real American Cowboys has just premiered on Peacock. Louis Vuitton's 2024 fashion show favored countless cowboy-friendly looks.

It’s officially safe to say that the cowboy aesthetic is in vogue.

If you want to hop on this trend while it’s hot, there are several ways you can incorporate Country-Western looks in your everyday wardrobe.

Western-Wear Basics

Nordstrom currently has an endless display of everyday tops for men that have a cowboy twist. Just one peek at their “Western-Wear” section for men proves that this aesthetic can be incredibly versatile.

No worries. These looks are nothing like the silly cowboy costumes we bust out for Halloween — you’re not gonna show up looking like Woody from Toy Story. There is nothing costumey at all about this look.

If you're eager to embrace this trend, it’s enough to add a simple denim button-down to your closet. Or, if you want to go cowboy-bold, you can always opt for this Regular Fit Western Piping Detail Button-up.

Cowboy Accessories

Another way to get creative — or authentic — with this trend is by combining cowboy accessories with basic fits. Cowboy boots, Western fedoras, and buckled belts can do the trick. Adding one of these funky accessories to a monochrome top and blue jeans is super in style at the moment.

You can dress it up or dress it down with as many cowboy flourishes as you’re comfortable with.

Gender-Bending Statement Pieces

Sparkles, Glitter, and Sheer, oh my!

The 2020s have seen a seismic shift in men’s fashion. And it’s increasingly veering toward androgynous fits. Thanks to stars like Timothee Chalamet, Lil’ Nas X, and Harry Styles, gone are the days when men are expected to wear traditionally masculine clothing exclusively.

As of 2024, we’re seeing more and more men rocking flashy outfits with gender-bending flare. For those bold enough to stand out this Spring, glitter and sparkly material are in.

Timothee Chalamet turned heads at the Paris premiere of Willy Wonka when he showed up in a sheer sparkling top. Troye Sivan killed it at the 2024 Grammy’s in a sheer button-up by Prada. Are you bold enough to add these daring fits to your wardrobe?

Back to The Basics

While there’s been an emphasis lately on striking styles that break from the norm, there will always be a place in men’s fashion for classic, enduring looks.

So, what are some timeless fashion trends we can view through a modern lens?

Quiet Luxury

This season? Quiet Luxury is quite du jour. For those unfamiliar with the Quiet Luxury aesthetic, it is defined by Carl Friedrik as a style that “emphasizes investment in high-quality, minimalist pieces that have timeless appeal.”

To counter the flashier looks of the times, there’s been a notable rise in minimalist fashion. Quieter outfits are making a serious comeback in the fashion world. Putting a damper on crazy loud patterns and brand logos, these monochromatic pieces simply scream “sophistication.”

Quiet Luxury outfits favor quality material to blinding patterned fabrics. Sure, it’s stripped down, but it’s also timeless. Uniqlo, Ralph Lauren, and Nordstrom have fantastic options in this category.

Knit Wear

It may be getting hotter outside, but the fashion gods have spoken: knit is in! Knitted clothing pretty much guarantees an appearance of effortless sophistication and class. Right now, knitted sweaters, sleeveless knitted v-necks, and knitted tanks are killing it.

Knitwear can be tied in with the quiet luxury aesthetic. Just stick with monochrome as opposed to loud, knitted patterns. The choice is yours. You can’t go wrong with these knitted wardrobe staples that simply reek of elegance and luxury.

Vintage Will Always Be In

They say, “Out with the old, in with the new.” But when it comes to fashion, it’s more like “Out with the new, in with the old.”

No matter what, there’s always a place for vintage styles to complement the latest fashions. It seems like an oxymoron, this idea that the newest trends can be totally retro. But there’s no denying that nostalgia plays a huge role in today's trends because they once were the trends themselves.

Y2K is Here to Stay

It’s crazy to think the early 2000s are now considered retro, yet alas. It’s been over two decades since the days of fun bright colors, fuzzy prints, and statement sunglasses.

The Y2K trend began in as early as 2019, and here in the Spring of 2024, it doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon. Denim, sunglasses, and repurposed patchwork are very much in vogue, thanks to the Y2K trend.

Boohoo, Abercrombie, and Nordstrom have terrific options for this throwback style.

Did Somebody say ‘Gatsby’?

@ian.brownhill Plain and Simple… nothing beats the #1920s #vintagefashion #mensfashion #mensstyle #peakytok #peakyblinders 

The Great Gatsby film has just returned to Netflix. Peaky Blinders is still all the rage. The Fitzgerald-esque “old money” influence of the era is everywhere these days. It may be the 2020s, but the 1920s are de rigueur. From the Peaky Blinders hairstyles to the tailored waistcoats and newsboy hats, this look still has a massive impact in 2024.
