While Western Europe is taken by it’s first heat wave and wearing as little clothes as possible is all we want, next year’s menswear is on our minds. So what should men be wearing in the summer of 2016? We’ve made a recap of some of Paris Fashion Week’s highlights. Trends to anticipate, items to chase and style splurges to aspire. Here are eight menswear trends for spring/summer 2016.

The utility jacket
Junya Watanabe, Ann Demeulemeester, Balmain
As a man you’re gonna want one or more sleeveless jackets, with lots of pockets. A so called utility jacket, yet note that all of these pockets should stay empty. You don’t want humps and bumps in your perfectly ironed jacket. That’s not cool. There are men bags for keys, wallets and iPhones.

Shiny & Silky
Saint Laurent, Dries van Noten, Louis Vuitton
While men are getting in touch with their feminine side more and more shiny and silky becomes more mainstream. Just look at how the models at Dries van Noten and Louis Vuitton pulled off those extravagant, luxurious attires.

Camouflage
Dior, Saint Laurent, Valentino
Camouflage prints still are a thang. Not too blend in though; these items are meant to be noticed. Festival thrill or business vibe; the camouflage print isn’t too picky when it comes to dresscodes.

Super loose
Walter van Beirendonck, Dries van Noten, Raf Simons
Pants to give you legs for days are not just for the ladies. Next summer your man is gonna want a pair of his own too (wedge sandals excluded). Shirt tucked in and belted; that’s the way to go.

Souvenir jacket
Valentino, Louis Vuitton
This fashion piece may appear like a baseball jacket, but it’s in fact a whole different ball game. The souvenir jacket is shiny, printed, with a sporty touch and goes well with jeans and sneakers.

Heavy on the hardware
Haider Ackermann, Comme des Garcons, Lanvin
Zippers all over, big buckled belts, studs or spikes; going heavy on hardware is key. For all you cool kids out there: even if it’s 30 degrees outside; wear leather and heavy metal details.

Eighties revival
Lanvin, Dries van Noten, Paul Smith
It was about time for it; an eighties revival. We starting subtly though; with short jackets, loose pants and pops of color. More will follow next season, once we’re completely recovered from our seventies syndrome.
