In Summary
  • Men’s fashion has changed despite the fact that they tend to wear with a certain design they are comfortable with, year in, year out. It is only the fashionistas, especially those on the social scene that are afraid to repeat clothes because of public criticism.

WRAP UP. Because the year is ending in a few weeks, we bring you the fashion trends that rocked the men’s scene this year, writes Isaac Ssejjombwe.

The male rompers
The romper has always been tagged to women but this year, it crossed over to men. The beauty about this style is that it has pockets on the chest and bottom. To make a fashion statement one ought to oil their legs and wear befitting steppers.

Printed suits
Back then, mute and neutral coloured suits were the order of the day. They were design- specific but 2018; more colour, bolder print and fitting is a step ahead.

Brian Ahumuza of Abryanz Style was among the first people who nailed the tunic. The cheapest came at about Shs150,000.

Denim
