Way back then, when it comes to define fashionable men, what comes to mind is usually men in suit. Dandy, dapper, and suave. Imagine the Roaring 20s in The Great Gatsby. In this modern era, many men have defied, in a sense, what man fashion is supposed to be. Hailing the unisex theme, man’s fashion scene underwent a significant change influenced by famous people from showbiz industry and as well as street inspired look. Men went from wearing a boring safari shirt to a colorful suit in a rapid span of time. Many male artists embrace the maximalism, blur the gender lines in attire, or simply reimagine shapes and color palettes. We’ve listed 10 men who are doing the most to expand the limits of menswear in this era.
A true icon. Beside his music, his fashion becomes a legacy as well. He changed his style effortlessly – starting off with a plain tee and a pair of jeans to, wait for it, an avid follower of French fashion house Chanel. He became Lagerfeld’s fave and naturally became the fashion house’s muse.

As expected from Jared Leto’s close friend, Alessandro Michele brought back the idea that men are allowed to dress up to get attention. And he did that singlehandedly. He encourages his clients – Tom Hiddleston, Harry Styles, and many other to expand their sartorial imagination.
Men in pink suit? Only Harry Styles rocks it. Since his departure from One Diection, Harry began to explore his style more. He is now mastering an androgynous rocker look with a skinny jeans, high heeled boots, or a flowy floral shirts. Our best guess is that Harry wishes to be the next Mick Jagger.
