Australia is well-known for gifting the world with some of the hottest hunks around (see: the Hemsworth brothers). There’s no doubt about it – Australia has more than its fair share of fine men. It’s no wonder – their bodies are shaped by surfing, their tan golden from all that sun. But one of the factors in their attractiveness has got to be their style too. So, let’s take a look at some of the most important elements of Australian style.
They are not afraid of color
Describe Australian style in one word? Colorful. Perhaps it’s the perpetual sunshine, or the beach style influence, or just the good mood everyone always seem to be in, but Australians love being colorful. Secure in their own masculinity, Australian men don’t put much stock in the traditional notions about genders and colors. For instance, one of the biggest trends in men’s fashion Down Under this season are pastels. Milennial pink, rose, powder blue, and mint are some of the favorites and they are especially popular on kicks. Those who aren’t fans of pastels will mostly be rocking orange and red in 2018.
They look amazing in a suit
An elegant suit is never out of fashion, and Australians seem to be well aware of that fact. Custom made stylish men's suits in Sydney are in constant demand. Some of the biggest male fashion icons of the continent, like for instance, Roger Shamoun, are known for always wearing a sophisticated outfit. Seersucker is particularly popular in the summer. A well-tailored jacket is also often paired with white trousers and a simple button-down shirt. Of course, the secret to looking dashing in a suit is to have it custom made, or at least to have a tailor customize a suit that’s been bought off the rack. Even the most expensive suit will look bad if it doesn’t fit perfectly. This season, one of the hottest trends in menswear are vertical stripes, and they can be expected to make an appearance on suits as well.
They are fashion-forward
Australian men aren’t afraid of experimenting and embracing trends. For instance, this year, one of the biggest hits are cropped wide-legged pants. Believe it or not, this (admittedly, much more comfortable) style is taking over from skinny jeans that have been reigning supreme for years now. Not convinced yet? Take a look at some of the other popular trends this season. Pointed toes are making a huge comeback, as are Cuban collars. Although these might not be the easiest designs to pull off, expect to see them incorporated into most outfits in 2018.
They’re great at mixing styles
Matchiness is easy – almost anyone can pull off an outfit that doesn’t stray from the norm. Put a man in well tailored formal wear – chances are he’ll look amazing. Dress him in street wear – he’ll probably look okay. But Australian men are masters of that difficult matter of mixing styles. Those who manage to pull off unexpected combos and still look great are the truly fashionable. What could possibly look better than a man in a bespoke suit, with impeccable shoes, rocking a beard, man bun, and expensive earrings? What about mixing full sleeve tattoos with pleated slacks, a fitted T-shirt, and a cool pair of kicks? If there’s one thing that Australians have in spades when it comes to fashion, it’s daring.
When it comes to men’s fashion on the smallest continent, we’re not just talking about surfer chic and cargo pants. Of course, there’s no doubt about it – they have beach wear down to a science, but Australian fashion is so much more than that.
