On the JJ Barnes Blog, thinking about gifts for the man in my life, I look at the men’s fashion trends that are most popular this Winter.

If, like me, you have a fella to buy gifts for, it’s always good to know what trends are hot! Whether it’s cords, puffer jackets, baggy jeans or balaclavas, James Pryer, menswear expert and Head Buyer at BoohooMAN, has shared his must-follow menswear trends for Winter 2022.

James and the buying team anaylsed trends from AW22 Fashion Weeks, and used their insider knowledge and Google Search data to reveal which staple items are starting to surge in popularity right now, as the cold weather starts to set in and Christmas gift buying season is upon us.

From Top Gun-esque aviator jackets to cool Y2K cargo pants, here are the nine biggest trends expected to be everywhere in the coming months.  

Shearling jackets 

Earlier this year, Top Gun also brought shearling collard flight jackets back to our screens, and the colder weather means you could be on the hunt for a new coat. Google Trends data shows an incredible 614% rise in searches for shearling coats the last 12 months, with the term ‘mens shearling coat’ currently soaring.

A shearling jacket would make a timeless addition to your man’s wardrobe. Not only do they keep you warm, but they are also extremely versatile. They ca be layered over a hoodie for a casual look, or teamed with a chunky knit or roll-neck jumper for a smarter style. 

Not only that, but as faux-fur collars stormed the AW22 catwalk, expect to see men embrace this revamped 90’s look in the coming months.

Leather Look 

AW22 fashion week designers giving the traditional leather jacket a whole new look as the catwalk was flooded with ‘Matrix style’ longline leather and PU coats, teamed with leather and PU trousers. This could means a gothic style with with leather and leather-look PU being the key fabrics for Christmas 2022.

The “Gothcore” trend means black is a key colour here, and you can expect to see a lot of it this winter. From sportswear to tailoring, dark colours were prevalent at the AW22 Fashion shows, with designers showcasing dark and dramatic looks. Perfect for giving mens going-out looks a fresh approach.

Puffer Jackets  

Puffer jackets were a staple on the fashion scene when I was growing up, and in the last 90 days there has been a 147% increase in global Google searches for the term men’s puffer jackets. This Winter wardrobe staple is cool and versatile, so the perfect coat to keep warm in. You could even make a statement with a bold colour. Red is set to be a key colour for winter menswear, sure to set you apart from the crowd. 

However, if the heavy-duty style doesn’t work for you, these jackets don’t always have to be bulky. Lightweight puffer jackets look great when layered with hoodies, and scarves, and are easy to pack if you’re on the move.  

Cargo pants  

As the Y2K trend continues, Cargo pants will be another key staple for winter 2022. In the last 12 months, searches for ‘mens cargos’ have increased by 81% and are currently rising. 

A look I saw every day growing up in the 90’s, team this skatewear influenced style with a long-sleeved top underneath an oversized graphic tee.

Dressing gown coats  

While I’m not convinced by this one, it seems dressing gowns are being given a whole new lease of life – and it’s totally okay to wear them outside the house.

Belted coats made from soft fabrics with shawl lapels are getting more and more popular, as data shows people are very interested in this comfortable trend. The search term ‘men’s dressing gown coat’ rose by an average of 251% in September. 

This trend comes in at just the right time as we find ways to combat the increase in the cost of living this winter. Try teaming this style with a fleece or borg jacket and finish with essential winter warmers, a scarf, gloves, and a hat. 

Cord trousers 

A firm favourite with my Grandad, if you’re looking for an alternative to jeans, corduroy trousers are expected to be huge over the next few months. Searches for ‘men’s cords’ have increased by 92%, suggesting this is another key trend to watch. 

A great option for autumn, these are a practical alternative to chinos as they offer warmth, whilst still ensuring you look smart yet stylish. Team them with sneakers for an on-trend look, or leather boots, mules, clogs, or loafers for a more formal occasion.  


Not just for bankrobbers, balaclavas are another trend that emerged from the AW22 catwalks, and as we edge into winter, experts at BoohooMAN expect this accessory to be huge.  

Pair with other winter pieces such as puffer jackets, tracksuits, and scarves to complete the look or layer over a baseball cap, which is the key to nailing laid- back street style. A perfect gift for keeping cosy.

Oversized jeans  

If you’re still trying to squeeze into your Noughties drainpipes, you can finally breathe out. It’s time to embrace the baggy jean trend, with Justin Bieber being one of the most iconic faces to bring skater style into the spotlight.

In the last 12 months, searches for the term “baggy jeans for men” has increased by 190%, whilst the term ‘oversized jeans men’ is surging right now, too.  

If you’re keen to try out the skater look, take influence from Bieber and co. with oversized hoodies, sweaters, and tees, not to mention a fresh pair of sneakers.
