Looks like dad trends are still dominating the fashion world.
During recent fall/winter 2020 shows, Who What Wear noted that ties and suits were popular on the runway. Designer labels like Prada, Dior, Gucci and Rokh have capitalized on the suit accessory, pairing it printed pantsuits and dresses.

A leitmotif of the #DiorAW20 show from @MariaGraziaChiuri, discover the #DiorSavoirFaire behind the scarves that appeared tied around the models’ heads throughout. Featuring House motifs such as polka dots, Toile Oblique, and the more recent tie-dye, as well as referencing archival designs from the Marc Bohan era, the scarves were woven with fil coupé jacquard borders before being precision printed.
We’ve been seeing dad trends pop up since 2017. If you’ve wondered how it’s evolved throughout the years, here’s a quick timeline.
Dad sneakers (2017)
During the summer of 2017, everyone was obsessed with chunky sneakers, calling them “dad sneakers” since they’re commonly worn by dads. Instead of wearing the shoes with jeans, people started pairing them with dresses, suits and other outfits. We’ve also seen brands like Dior and Yeezy come out with their own renditions of the shoe style.
Collared shirts (2017)
I know, collared shirts are practically everywhere and people wear them a lot. But when Balenciaga sent down men wearing long-sleeved collared shirts during their spring/summer 2018 show, it was instantly a dad fashion trend. A lot of times, this style is layered with an oversized crew neck.
Hawaiian shirts (2018)
These tropical-print shirts became trendy in the summer of 2018 when women started wearing them with bralettes and crop tops. Think Hayley Kiyoko in the “Curious” music video.
Tube socks (2018)
We don’t know where the obsession with tube socks came from, but fashion girls like Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner started wearing them a lot in 2018. These were usually worn with chunky dad sneakers and shorts. Or if you’re Selena Gomez, paired with leggings.
Dad cardigan (2019)
A dad cardigan is just like every other knitted outerwear that’s commonly worn with collared shirts and jeans. It later evolved into an oversized sweater that young women wear over their graphic tees and crop tops.
What other dad trends will become big (or will come back) in the next few months? Let’s wait and see.
