This is one of the fashion trends for men that is a blessing in disguise for those who are comparatively shorter.
The high rise of the waistline of the trousers makes your legs look longer and slimmer,while also covering a potbelly if you have one. If you are already on the tall scale, it is best to stick to mid-rise trousers.
Combine your trousers with a color-coordinated jacket to complete your outfit. This is a classy look and will provide you a lasting good impression.

The most opted of the top fashion trends for men in 2020 is the Tie-Dye Prints.
Although it has been around for a while, Tie-Dye prints has emerged as one of the top fashion trends because of the COVID-19 situation – and this is because of the fact that Tie-Dye Prints has become a fun way of letting loose while being stuck at home.
It is one of the easiest ways to add some color to your wardrobe.
From loungewear to activewear, you can tie-dye any of your outfits.
You could either DIY them at home or shop online for some fancy prints.
Animal Prints are a classy trend that could never go out of style – across both menswear and womens wear.
And Leopard Prints has seen a strong resurgence to one of the top fashion trends for men in 2020, although the style for men is a tad docile as compared to womenswear.
Leopard Print Shirts are informal and give your outfit a sensual look combined with a boost of confidence.
Needless to say, it takes a lot of gusto to pull it off or risk looking like a local gangster.
Now that still gives you a bad boy edge. Complete your outfit with a
biker jacket and dark shades.
The important point to keep in mind while choosing your outfit is to stick to one animal print with contrasting darker shaded trousers.
Yes, Oversized TShirts are back in style and have elevated to being one of the top fashion trends for men in 2020.
There is a catch though. By oversized we don’t mean a few sizes larger than your size but a baggy(not sloppy) fit that is flattering. We usually stress about the perfect fit when it comes to shirts or T-shirts.
And while we do stick to that fact, T-Shirts and Shirts need to have a wiggle room. A little extra of that makes your T-Shirt baggy, and oversized – giving you that comfort and easy look.
Make sure to buy T-Shirts or Shirts labeled as ‘Oversized’ or ‘Relaxed’. Getting the tee you like in a bigger size will end up being too long and narrow.
We recommend sticking to graphic tees or solid colored ones while buying your oversized tee.
Not a Man’s Purse, But a Cross-Body Bag. If you have watched Suits (A brilliant sitcom), then the bag that you’ve seen Mike carry is what we mean.
Not only is it an amazing and most practical asset, but also adds a lot to your street styling quotient – which is why it is included in one of the top fashion trends for men in 2020.
The two main things to watch out for while buying your cross-body bag is – The Style and The Size. Choose a neutral color that won’t contrast your outfit. The Size can be medium not too big or too small. We suggest you try it out before you purchase one.
10.Over the knee shorts
Men’s long shorts or over the knee shorts – once considered a fashion faux pas, is now one of the top fashion trends for men in 2020.
They are versatile, super comfy, and a must-have. While buying your shorts make sure the length of the shorts hits right at the knee or slightly below them.
You can never go wrong with the color or pattern. Stick to solids or camouflage prints.
THE BOTTOM LINE
While fashion is important, Safety does come first. Follow the protocol if you are going shopping offline. Beware of malicious software if you do decide to buy them online. Stick to known and trusted brands.
It’s 2020! Go all out, but keep it simple. Simplicity is elegance. Try out various colors and take fashion risks – move out of your comfort fashion, don’t go overboard though. Remember to share the warmth!
