The MTV VMA is always a great place for men to get style inspiration from. Men’s fashion at the VMA’s displayed out-of-the-box and classic looks, illustrating the modern age of wear what you like. These four looks popped up on the pink carpet and we’re sure men are going see more of these trends.
1. Tailored Suits with Unexpected Personal Touches
Shawn Mendes arrived on the pink carpet wearing what appeared to be a classic tailored suit. Taking a closer look, we see that the suit is actually color blocked with navy and olive green, two colors that haven’t been paired much in the past. Expect to see traditional suits taken to the next level with interesting personal touches like this one.
2. Minimalist Looks
Minimalism is finding its way into every facet of existence, from downsizing homes to creating clean, minimalist fashion looks. Jennifer Lopez’s boyfriend Alex Rodriguez showed up to the 2018 MTV VMA on August 20th with a smart textured burgundy blazer and simple black pants and a white shirt. His outfit is largely unassuming and he illustrates the point that fashion doesn’t have to be outrageous to make a statement.
3. Bold Prints
On the other side of the spectrum, bold prints are making a comeback. Gucci Mane drew all eyes to his colorful suit jacket as he walked at the MTV VMA. One part circus-ringmaster pinstripe and one part Chinese dragon art, this pink, navy, and turquoise number is certainly one-of-a-kind. While day-to-day men’s fashion may never go this far, you’ll see bold prints cropping up more frequently.
4. All White
All white was certainly a trend at the 2018 MTV VMA, with several stars donning white from head to toe, including Kylie Jenner and Blake Lively. Maluma’s sharp white suit showed that men can rock the all-white look too. There’s something unexpected about seeing a lot of white in an outfit, and we’re sure that all white ensembles will continue trending well into next year.
Men can take a few leaves out of the books of these fashion-forward celebrities and elevate their wardrobe with both unique and classic looks.
