4 Best ‘Dad Style’ Trends

Father’s Day is around the corner, and there’s no better way to toast to our dads than a deep-dive on their fashion trends. Once ridiculed, this ‘dad style’ trend is back in full swing, riding on that nostalgia train - Choo Choo! Here at Yishion, we rounded up 4 best ‘dad style’ pieces that we can take inspiration from (and make it our own).

As straight leg as straight leg gets, these loose fitting light wash casuals are classics in your dad’s closets. Remember, dads dress for function (think durability and comfort) not form - but it doesn’t mean that it should be frumpy.

Paired with a solid button up or t-shirt, light denim is the ideal complement to your chunky dad sneakers. Opt for a tee with a trendier print (tie dye/graphics) for your own take on the ‘dad look’.

Gone are the days of men in skin-tight shirts, goodbye and good riddance! Dads love their loose fitting shirts with their spacious shirt pockets.

This popular fabric is the twist you need to conquer the ‘Dad Aesthetic’, without looking like a full-on dad. Extra points for the chest pocket too!

These loud, colourful dad-favourites used to be considered as sportswear, but are now dominating even the runways. Both lightweight and weather-proof, there’s no better outerwear for Singapore’s unpredictable weather.

Here’s our take on this particular trend, without breaking the bank! Throw on some basic top like our models and you’re good to go - the jackets themselves are statement enough.

When it comes to dad-approved accessories, function and utility are still the number one priority. Consider adding iconic ‘80s pieces, such as bum bags (or fanny packs) and chunky white orthopedic sneakers to your closets to achieve your peak ‘dad’ aesthetics.

With this crossbody bag, you’ll quickly realise that dads were on to something when they decided to stop overstuffing their pockets. There’s absolutely no reason to - when they can carry their essentials in a much fashionable (street-style inspired) way.
