After the pandemic-induced indoor stay, renewed creative energy and optimism are the fundamentals of the Spring-Summer 2022 men’s fashion trends, says Tsunami Costabir.
Having stayed indoors and with WFH becoming the staple, there was an emphasis on effortless officewear. With increasing time to think about oneself, one’s personality and passions, an outlet for creative energy was needed and revealed in the form of psychedelic prints, fancy flip-flops, loose and cut-out clothing, and for those who dare to wear masculine heels!
Cool, casual, and comfortable with some major audacity in rethinking traditionally feminine pieces into the male wardrobe, let’s jump right into some of our favorite menswear trends this season!
This look is all about breathability and “allowing the places that have never seen the sun to see the sun” – while looking super dapper and fashionable! It also serves as a great pool or beach party look.

- Sandals & Masculine Heels

This is probably the most revolutionary trend this season! And for the days when you couldn’t care less, slides and slippers will be your buddy.
