This new year, there is no need to shy away from anything funky, menswear is transforming itself faster than ever before, women are not the only ones who are going to enjoy a lot of color, prints and outrageous styling. 2013 is a year to shine for men. The men in fashion like Kanye West, Gerard Butler, Justin Bieber, David Beckham etc. are raising the bar higher and bringing in riskier trends.
2013 is bringing a wider variety to choose from, this year is about experimenting, and bringing out the many personalities you own. Some of the major trends to take over men’s fashion are:
Neons and Fluorescent
Yes, you read it right boys! Get the craziest colors in the world out, because no one is going to judge you in 2013! Needless to say you will be the center of attention, so make sure you’re going to be able to handle it. Women’s wear too is hitting highs with this trend, the only key is to make sure you accessorize well, and balance out the brightness of the outfit. This trend is especially great for those who have darker skin tones as the brightness of the outfit will get absorbed by the skin and bring out the beauty in the colors. Don’t hesitate to pile neon on neon!, there can never be less color after having survived the end of the world in 2012!
If you describe yourself as edgy and are willing to take shiny risks with your wardrobe, come aboard the metallic bandwagon. The versatility that this trend provides is phenomenal, each piece be it a shirt, pant, accessory etc., can travel through your wardrobe even after the passing of the metallic phase. Choose wisely though, anything shiny and fitted will make you look larger, so make sure the fit is on point and the fabric is comfortable in the weather you are in. This is a great trend to get into if you want to experiment with shinier looks.
Velvets and blacks
Bring richness to your wardrobe with velvets, men’s wear is designed very carefully with hints of velvet fabrics on jackets and shirts. This is a fashion forward move for every man, to bring luxe fabrics into everyday wear requires courage and originality. Black too is in this year, and who doesn’t love black? Color blocking with different materials and shades is going to bring added interest to your ensemble. Try to make a twist with your regular blacks by layering them.
If you’re too moody to budge; don’t worry, pastels will save you from any fashion disaster, and these colors are best suited for the spring season and are soothing to the eyes. Not too adventurous but definitely on point. These pieces will travel farther in your wardrobe and can be a good investment.
