Utility style for casual and contemporary men
Many pockets, comfortable and resistant fabrics, functional lines. These are the main characteristics of the utility look, one of the most important trends seen in the men's spring summer 2024 fashion shows. Extreme functionality is one of the peculiarities of many casual trousers inspired by workers' overalls. Some examples are the models with wide cuffs created by Giorgio Armani, those in almost signaling orange by Lucio Vanotti, or the convertible ones by Ermenegildo Zegna, which thanks to the many divisible zip can turn into shorts or Bermudas pants. Colonial and military inspiration for the natural linen trousers by Etro or the camouflage ones by Palm Angels, Valentino and R13. But certainly the utility-style trousers most seen on the catwalks is the cargo:
At Junya Watanabe and Off-White, the multi-pocket cargo pants have cuffs and camouflage prints

Men’s casual pants looks to the future with avant-garde lines
The trendiest designers use casual trousers for their creative experiments, with truly cutting-edge models that have unusual proportions and details. The pants’ legs become wide with very deep darts for Louis Vuitton, or having huge proportions for Kenzo and Yohji Yamamoto. On the contrary, there are the super-skinny pants by Maison Margiela. In addition to the silhouette’s widths, also lengths can vary a lot. There are, for example, the ankle-cut models proposed in various fabrics and colors. For the cropped trousers, Dries Van Noten uses linen, while Brooksfield prefers the classic gabardine. Dondup, Eleventy and Woolrich shorten their trousers with maxi cuffs. Paul Smith, Giorgio Armani and Fendi focus their attention on high waist, for the models in relaxing, soft fabrics closed by drawstring, cords and folds. Rick Owens and Dolce & Gabbana propose extremely modern low-crotch oriental-style trousers. An interesting mix of fabrics makes contemporary and unusual the pants by Just Cavalli, which mixes leather with cotton, and Vetements, which combines classic casual black trousers with frayed denim details.
Psychedelic prints and bold colors for the most fashionable casual pants
If this summer you need a boost of energy for your leisure time, try the hyper-colored and fancy casual trousers proposed by men's fashion designers. Fabrics and colors follow precise trends. The return of vintage style can be found in the collections of Roberto Cavalli, Valentino and Dries Van Noten, which reproduce 60s-style tapestry-effect prints, but transformed by psychedelic colored patterns. 70s style instead for the multicolored ethnic print inspired by the designs of the Native Americans that Sacai brings in its men's catwalk, but also for the flared pants in iridescent blue and purple fabric proposed by Lanvin. The luxury and the excess of the 80s inspired the metallic trousers by Saint Laurent or the pop-shaded floral prints that Versace matches with the fluorescent trainers. For who wants a pinch of romanticism there are the flowers drawn on tartan prints proposed by Seville, the abstract ones by Alexander McQueen and the soft pastel colors of the chinos pants by PT01 and Dondup. But the men's collections of spring summer 2024 also see the triumph of the most classic fabrics and colors. Striped prints for Balmain, Christian Pellizzari and Lemarie, while Versace proposes the classic pinstripe. Tartan pattern is back in a lightweight version with the more traditional proposals by Berwich, Ermenegildo Zegna and Stella McCartney or more innovative by Comme Des Garçons, Dsquared2 and Maison Margiela. Among the most popular shades there are the neutrals, ranging from turtledove to beige and light browns, that are used for the cotton trousers by Jacob Cohen and Versace or for those in linen, with relaxed and wide lines, designed by Ralph Lauren and Y-Project. Casual male trousers have a decidedly summery and cool mood especially in the case of white, used for example by Dior Homme combined with silk shirts with all-over logo print, in a milky shade by Brunello Cucinelli or in a blinding white tone just decorated by small lightning prints for Neil Barrett.
