Spring is known as the season of new beginnings, and keeping up with the latest trends in fashion can be tricky, especially for men who aren’t sure what has changed and what’s in style. This guide to outerwear for men highlights the best designs to incorporate in springtime 2022, including workwear, jackets, and casuals.
Men’s Spring Outerwear Spotlight: Sleeveless Sweaters
Sweater vest or sleeveless sweater: A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Despite being popular in the Great Depression, this outerwear is on fire for spring 2022. Fashion Week proved the sleeveless sweater, whether round or V-neck, has been reinvented into something of a hit. Take houses like Prada and Dior Men, who busted out all kinds of brightly patterned knits.
The Classic Reinvented: Cardigans
Cardigans may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of men’s outerwear, but they have established themselves as a go-to this coming spring. Styles to keep an eye for include vintage accents, bright knits, and long lengths. Banded cuffs add an air of chic to this style, as does a shawl collar.

Spring 2022 sees varsity jackets slip into the men’s outerwear collection in a big way. This all-American style has always been popular with high school and university athletes, but this year the trend is hitting the streets — the streets of Fashion Week, that is.
A Surprising Spring Trend: Trucker Jackets
Men’s spring fashion 2022 sees denim as a go-to no one saw coming. With many men declaring an end to jeans after growing accustomed to more comforting pandemic attire, this look is one we weren’t expecting. Nevertheless, denim is definitely on trend this season. One way to rock the blue jean look is with a stylish trucker jacket. They’re as versatile and flattering as outerwear can be.
Workwear With a Semi-Casual Flair: Collared Shirts
Soft collars are out this year. Instead, it’s all about prominent, strong collars. In 2022, go bigger with pointed looks. A slim striped Oxford or regular fit, sharp collar shirt is a must — especially in light colors like pale blues or yellows. Medium stiffness typically works best when wearing a pointed collar and looks most flattering on men with broad faces.
The Bad Boy Look: Leather Jackets
Leather is typically a mid-season choice, but it’s found a place among the spring lineup this season. Think sleeveless leather jackets or mid-length looks. The best thing about leather is that it’s warm without being too heavy, perfect for the unpredictable ups and downs of springtime. Solid colors are front and center this spring, and a sleek black leather jacket is right on point.
That wraps up our guide to spring outerwear for men. Which men’s spring fashion trend is your favorite for 2022? No matter which looks you like, keep in mind that there’s no one way to wear them. Stay true to your sense of style and find what works best for you. After all, a little personality goes a long way in looking stylish.
