The world of men’s fashion is a canvas of constant change and adaptation. In 2024, we’re witnessing a shift in suit trends, where the sleek allure of slim fit suits is now juxtaposed with the rising popularity of oversized tailoring. This evolution is not just about fashion—it’s about comfort, expression, and breaking away from conventional norms. As we explore this sartorial adjustment, we can better understand the nuances that make each style desirable and explore how they cater to different preferences and body types.
Oversized vs. Slim Fit Suits
In the ever-changing landscape of men’s fashion, 2024 has ushered in a trend shift from the once-dominant slim fit suits to a growing preference for oversized suits, especially among younger millennials and Gen Z. From the big coats, tiny shorts runway looks of Valentino and Paul Smith to the oversized double breasted jackets of Gucci, we’re seeing hints of this aesthetic across the board in many collections.
This change is both a style preference in suits for men and a nod to comfort through a relaxed aesthetic. To understand this transition, it’s essential to cover the technicalities of differentiating these two suit styles and knowing how a suit should fit.
Proportions: The essence of an oversized suit lies in its proportions. These suits are designed to offer a larger and looser fit, creating a relaxed silhouette that is both modern and flattering. The challenge here is to balance the proportions to prevent the suit from looking too boxy or overwhelming the wearer’s frame.Shoulders: A distinctive feature of oversized suits is the shoulder construction. Unlike traditional fits, the shoulders in an oversized suit may extend slightly past the natural shoulder line. This subtle extension is key to achieving the suit’s relaxed and contemporary appeal.Material and Drape: The choice of material plays a central role in oversized suits. High-quality fabrics that drape well can make a significant difference, ensuring the suit hangs gracefully on the body, enhancing the look despite the larger size.Styling: Styling an oversized suit requires a strategic approach. To counterbalance its voluminous nature, pairing it with a fitted item is advisable. This helps maintain a defined shape in the overall outfit, ensuring the look remains polished and not sloppy.
Slim Fit Suits
Cut: In contrast, slim fit suits are tailored closely to the body, accentuating a fitted silhouette. This style is particularly flattering for men with slim or athletic builds, highlighting their physique with its snug fit.Comfort: While slim fit suits are undeniably stylish, they are often less comfortable and forgiving. They can be particularly challenging for those who don’t have the ideal body type for this style, as the close cut leaves little room for movement.Proportions: Slim fit suits are characterized by reduced fabric around the waist and chest. This creates a sharp, defined shape that closely follows the contours of the body, offering a distinctly tailored appearance.
Amount of Fabric: A fundamental difference between the two styles is the amount of fabric used. Oversized suits have a more generous fabric allowance, providing a roomier fit, while slim fit suits are cut with less fabric, hugging the body closely.Fit and Comfort: Oversized suits are designed with comfort and a relaxed look in mind. Conversely, slim fit suits focus on creating a sharp, body-conscious profile, which may sometimes compromise comfort when not tailored properly.Styling and Proportions: Achieving the right look with an oversized suit requires careful consideration of proportions to avoid

Is Taylor Swift’s New Album About the Pains and Pleasures of Love? Here’s Our Predictions
Taylor Swift just announced her upcoming album, The Tortured Poets Department. Here are a few easter eggs that you shouldn’t miss.
Fellow Swifties unite once again because Taylor Swift is releasing a new album titled The Tortured Poets Department. The singer made it official announcement during her acceptance speech for the 66th Grammy Awards. With Swift being known to leave hints about her songs through cryptic notes and the way she dresses, fans are already having their own speculations of how the album will go including the team at MEGAStyle. Below our own deductions and predictions, and with that being said, are you ready for it?
RELATED: Taylor Swift and Olivia Rodrigo, Miley Cyrus and Mariah Carey, and More Interactions at the 2024 Grammy Awards
What we know so far
This is not much of a prediction because there are a few details that are already confirmed by the artist and other sources. Yes, it will be released on April 19 and the album was created in a span of almost two years. When it comes to the tracks, it has been confirmed that it has 16 tracks and a bonus one titled The Manuscript, alongside a suprising collaboration with rapper Post Malone.
Everything is planted if it’s Taylor Swift
The announcement of the 14-Grammy-award winner shocked all of us, as Swifties and even casual audiences had been anticipating the announcement of Reputation (Taylor’s Version). Her black and white look for the awards night, which could be described as a polished and refined aesthetic of the 2016 album, was actually a tip-off to her new cover art, which is in a soft grayscale. The watch choker she wore was also also a reference to the “tick, tick, tick” line in her lyrics spoiler. The Tortured Poets Department will be the singer’s third album in this color scheme, and knowing Ms. Swift, this could mean something. Is this a sign that it would also sound similar to folklore and evermore that had its indie-folk moment?
As for the April 19 release date, history can speak for Taylor’s chosen date. In 1775, the American revolted against the British, eventually defeating them at the American Revolutionary War. The singer-songwriter used to inject American and British references to her songs about the actor, not to mention her own track called “The Great War.” Coincidence? We think it’s too clever to be one.
Apart from the songs, another way to heal from a break up is by getting a whole new look, and it’s something that we do ourselves. Taylor has indulged in this kind of behaviour over the years, so perhaps we’re getting another one with this album. It’s a completely different vibe from her last album release Midnights, since the teaser photo gave us a sultry yet academia-like aesthetic. And we’re going to mention it again, her Grammy look is a hint for the upcoming concept she’ll be having for the album. You can take that as it is but at this point, we’re not taking anything lightly if it’s from Ms. Swift.
An academic course on her life and lessons
Intention is part of Taylor’s vocabulary, and her timing is just right with courses on her and body work have been launched. From the bonus track “The Manuscript” and the quill design on the merch, to the marker she referred to as the Department Bookmark, the academia theme sparks the interest of many. And if this is indeed about her previous relationship, this is perhaps her way of relearning heartbreak and loss, and understanding love again.
Since we’re in the subject of poetry, the essence of decoding Taylor’s signs and symbols can reach its current peak with this album. Knowing her artistic lyricism, should we expect more imagery and symbolism in the lines? One thing’s for sure—we can’t wait to read between them!
