A trend that ALL of you will LOVE… (EVERYONE WILL PROBABLY HATE) and won’t follow through with, is the new ‘Megging’ trend. What are meggings you may ask? Lil Wayne, Justin Bieber and even Lenny Kravitz… celebrities… rock them? Men + leggings = MEGGINGS! We know it sounds crazy… we mean MEGGINGS… come on… but think about it… guys nowadays wear skinny jeans so tight it can affect their male region… so why not go out in style/comfort in a pair of … MEGGINGS. WE DON’T KNOW HOW WE FEEL ABOUT THIS…
The phrase ‘stand out from the crowd’ has never been so wrong when it comes to our next trend … CAMOUFLAGE. It has not been seen since the tail-end of the 90s, but both designer and high street brands can’t get enough of this trend. We believe the best way to wear camouflage is through graphic t-shirts and coats.
The t-shirt on the far left, is a lightweight cotton jersey t-shirt by Marc by Marc Jacob, which can be dressed up with a pair of black skinny jeans. The jacket on the far right is a Khaki Camo Field Jacket from TOPMAN.
Camouflage can also be added through the use of accessories, like a pair of Arthur George socks, DESIGNED BY THE LOVE OF MY LIFE Rob Kardashian, (Sharnie) a rucksack (which could be worn with a plain white tee and skinny jeans) and a camo beanie.
A blazer is a fashion must have, this year update your wardrobe with a DOUBLE-BREASTED addition. After the recent London Men’s Fashion Week, its clear that the double-breasted blazer is going to be an item that can be worn throughout 2013, in both the classic style with a pair of matching trouser and as a standalone piece. C’mon even Justin Timberlake is singing about suits and ties … keep with the programme peeps.
The blazer on the far left is a limited edition double-breasted blazer from River Island. The navy colour means it can be worn as part of a casual ensemble with a pair of casual denim and brogues. The third blazer is a double-breasted cotton blend pique blazer by Paul Smith. Its single double-breasted button give it an elegant formal look which can add a touch of class to any occasion.
Graphic t-shirts are around every year, however different styles come in and out of fashion. This season stick to t-shirts with STRIPES, SLOGANS and FLORAL PRINTS. Below are 5 t-shirts which we believe highlight these trends.
Here are just a few t-shirts that are available from both designers and high street brands. We believe that the ‘geek’ slogan t-shirt that is available from TOPMAN and many other stores is to over worn, so why not go for this ‘Why’ floral print t-shirt. Our favorite t-shirt in this collection is the t-shirt in the center of the top row. I (Kishan) actually own this t-shirt, and believe that the HappyChap design by Raymond Mfon, who we believe is one to watch, is simplistic yet affective. So affective that Ed Sheeran and Delilah have both been pictured wearing his designs. WATCH THIS SPACE and fly with MFON!
Advancements in technology are now being translated into fashion, with this new trend. LIGHTWEIGHT COATS are going to be featured in many designer and high street brands lines from the front end of 2013. Using lightweight hi-tech material jackets can add to those formal and casual looks. The lightweight technical fabric packaway trench coat below by Burberry, can work as part of a casual look, as shown in the photo or it can be worn with a classic shirt, tie and pair of smart trousers. This spring look will have you looking so FRESH AND SO CLEAN CLEANNNNNN!
SHORTS are always going to be a hit during spring/summer (OR WHENEVER IT STOPS SNOWING/RAINING), however this year guys, lets not go for super-short shorts, and instead go for shorts that are closer to knee length.
The shorts on the left are by Dolce and Gabbana, the smart tailored cut means these shorts are versatile enough to be worn in a casual look with a simple t-shirt, and as part of a more tailored look with a shirt and double-breasted blazer. The pair of shorts on the right are from River Island. The light brown colour makes them perfect for any summer getaways, which the smart cut makes them perfect to dress up for a formal look.
P.S. This is to the guys reading this, one trend that hasn’t and should never be seen in 2013 is the GILET. I (Kishan) hate them, they are the most over worn piece of clothing around atm, and as well as shamballas (according to sharnie if you own one of these bracelets you should be shot off the face of the earth…. MAJOR FASHION NONO!!) these all should be left in 2012.
Well that’s it for now FASHIONBOTS… all the boring stuff out of the way… keep posted for a new post VERY VERY SOON…. Until next time
Remember it’s not always about the brand, if you have style you can conquer all!
Au revoir for now!
