Top Three Mens Trends For Autumn-Winter 2017

Steve Rowbottom, Director, Westrow, Reveals The Top Three Mens Trends For Autumn/Winter 2017


Fringes have been steadily gaining popularity over the last few seasons, but at the A/W17 shows we really saw a true trend emerge, with bangs ranging from short blunt and textured to long and thick. Ultra-thick eyebrow-grazing bangs were sported at Damir Doma, Dries Van Noten and Dior Homme, while blunt-cut fringes dominated at Christopher Shannon and Wooyoungmi. If you want to combine two of the new season's big trends – fringes and Nineties' styles – and have the self-confidence to pull it off, then follow Fendi's lead and opt for a long centre-parted fringe: aka ‘curtain bangs'. Take note: wallflowers, and those who wore this look the first time round should probably approach with caution.


Short, severe, military-inspired hairstyles dominated the A/W17 catwalks and look set to dominate the streets as the new season arrives. This traditionally urban style was seen, fairly surprisingly, at both Lanvin and D&G, proving that angular buzz-cuts are not only the new season's way to wear choppy cuts, but that they can be worn just as well against tailored clothes as against casualwear. Consider both hairline and head shape before going for the chop: textured crops help to disguise a receding hairline, while those with a decent hairline and symmetrical head shape can pull off ultra-short crops, like the ones seen at Oliver Spencer and Dior Homme.


Layered, shoulder-skimming, shaggy styles were sported at Acne Studios, Prada and Alexander McQueen this season. Imagine a Seventies' shag crossed with Game Of Thrones' Kit Harington and you're pretty much there. Length is vital, so you'll need to grow your hair to at least shoulder-length, and ask your hairdresser for internal layers, which add movement and volume, but retain a heavy feel. If your hair is fine and lacks volume, use a texturizing spray or salt spray to give it some oomph, whereas thicker locks can be styled with mousse and scrunch-dried from damp.
