Pool slides, cropped trousers, studded backpacks, and metallic leather bomber jackets might sound like something from a womenswear runway, but in fact they’re the key looks hitting the Spring 2016 menswear shows in Milan, London, and Paris.
Gender-neutral style is having a strong moment right now–particularly on the menswear scene. Since Hedi Slimane took the reigns at Yves Saint Laurent in 2012–bringing an androgynous vibe to the brand with fitted separates, leather pants, and Cuban heels–a one-sex-fits-all approach on the runway has quickly become the norm. Take Jimmy Choo’s colorful pool slides for spring 2016 as an example, or Louis Vuitton’s cropped, floral-print bomber. Then there’s the abundance of crop tops, pink, and sheer fabrics hitting the menswear shows right now.
Basically, the key takeaway here is that guys’ fashion has a lot to offer your wardrobe, too. In fact, we picked out 18 pieces totally swipe-able from the spring 2016 menswear runways.
