STREETFSNfashion. What else did you think? Well… can’t blame you for that one, and truth be told any excuse is a good excuse to chat about men. Looks. Styles. Who’s HOT/NOT et all. Besides, a little eye candy never hurt anyone, right? The true story behind this post (apart from the implied cheekiness) is the hints I got from my guy friends to write something related to their fashion, and how to dress to a look or style. Yeah go figure. Plus, the shopping trips I was dragged on, playing stylist/personal shopper in a field that’s not really right down my street – ha! a desperate fashion attention from the men in my life. Who would’ve thought. Them, interested in style? And I, as their turn-to-fashion-guide? Seriously now. Give me women’s fashion and I’ll take it. Men? WTF. Well turns out at the end of the day every lad was happy with their new look…men-cardigan-style-street-stylecool-style-menRandom chatting-that-nobody-gives-a-crap-about aside, I was actually glad to learn that the boyfriends and husbands in our lives do sometimes feel style-wise left behind and BANG! they wake up from their lazy-looks to try and keep up with what’s out there. Whether they’re doing a great job or not, is of less importance, it’s the principle that counts, cause let’s face it: ”my dear male straight friends, as hard as you tried you’ll never be able to nail a look like my gay friends. The latter ones could so often teach us ladies a few thangs about this and that in fashion”. Just saying… Though I’ll give you this: a few chaps out there do know style. It’s got less to do with the clothes they wear but how they wear it. Still, they are scarce in my hometown where I’m currently staying, and they do make me miss London street style so much more. Sure every country and culture has its own rules, and I honestly think each big city comes with its own street style. Too bad some have none… (gulp). Can we educate the men in our lives to dress and look a certain way? Can we push them on the right style track? SONY DSCcasual-look-emn-streetstyleDo you think men spend hours thinking about fashion? Going through latest collections, shops, markets? Yeah they do. NOT. Could it be that for men a style inspiration (subconscious of course) comes from the streets (what they’re friends and cool strangers are wearing), the music they listen to, the films they watch, the jobs they have, the wives/girlfriends influence? That’s perfectly fine. But what if the streets are packed with looser-fashionshit-wannabes? Then we’re fucked. So lads… this post is just for you, to get a little fashion inspo from what the hipster kids are wearing (I know you’re one of them, but nothing wrong with having a second look, right?).  men-street-style-chinosWhat are 2013 street style trends for MEN? 

  • Loafers are making a big comeback and every lad out there is ditching their socks for these.
  • No socks in shoes.
  • Tennis shoes
  • Rocknroll meets punk styles
  • Dapper meets casual looks
  • Rolled up shirt sleeves/trousers
  • Rugged looks (a few-days-grown-beards look fantastic). Think aaaa Gerard Butler vs Johnny Depp.
  • Tattoos (don’t get them to be hip, get them for the right reason)
  • Bags. From backpacks to briefcases, to vintage styles – you have to have one.
  • Cool shades
  • Amazing hair (I’ve noticed the haircut on the year, for those blessed with beautiful locks, is the shaved on sides and long in the front haircut, slicked back, super groomed for a dapper look, or left disheveled)

And now let’s have a look at some of the hipster kids out there, and sigh!

The Rocknroll/Punk & Sporty Chic Styles: leather jackets are still in and they go with everything, from a simple T shirt and jeans to crispy shirts and trousers (suit trousers, chinos, even shorts). Wear them with loafers, no socks, or with boots. Shades and a rugged look and you’re good to go.  men-street-style-rock-lookjog=hnny-depp-street-style-lookhow-to-style-jeans-menmen-shorts-bootsmen-street-style-leather-jacketsmen-street-style-hairstyle-tattoosmen-street-style-rock-ruggedrock-style-men-street-fashiontumblr_me0z5zQ1PU1qh9n5lo1_500white v-neck jeans leather jacket new york fashion week mens street style Lincoln Center september 2012 finalmen-tankto-stylesporty-chic-men-streetstylesporty-look-men-street-styleThe Dapper/Casual Chic Style: bare feet in perfect shoes, shirts, trousers and blazers. Keep it monochromatic or go wild on prints, colors and textures. No rules, remember, it’s all about feeling and looking great. Buttoned cardigans over shirts or T-shirts with chinos look super cool, laid back yet perfectly put together. Or you might want to don a suit… go for it. A while ago I was so into David Ghandi’s look, but now… not so much. I mean the guy is channeling Al Capone just a little too much. Just saying. dapper-look-streetstyle-menmen-glam-look-streetstyledapper-looks-street-style-mendapper-look-street-sfashion-menmen-hat-streetstylemen-dapper-lookloafers-men-street-stylemen-street-style-colored-lookmen-streetstyle-brown-suitmen-suit-street-stylemen-suit-streetstylemen-trends-suitman-street-style-rolled-pantsmen-look-street-stylemen-streetstylemen-street-style-bagsAnd for summer… the shorts look. Kinda tricky so don’t go there unless you can nail it. Sure most of these guys are models off duty, so no surprise there, style wise, but a few tips to probably steal from them would be to do your own thing, and get creative with clothes and looks. There is no getting it wrong basically, as long as you own it. If you’re a rock guy stick to black, edgy details and the classic leather jacket. Fuck rules and be yourself. If you’re into slick styles, quality is the key. A nice cut blazer and fitted shirt will have you looking like a million dollar babe. More looks for inspiration below… men-in-shorts-streetstylemen-summer-look-street-stylenavy-shorts-men-street-styleshorts-streetstyle-men

    It’s great that you talked about men’s fashion and their different styles. Recently, I decided I’d like to step up my wardrobe game.

    Thanks for pointing out that there are certain men out there who really know how to style themselves. I guess I would need to buy a men’s lightweight coat for my husband’s birthday next month. It would really look good on him since he is just a simple guy, so I would like to treat him and make him wear nice clothes at times.

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Bless you!

  16. Jon Doe says:

    I like the ones wearing what looks like female shoes, not high heels which look silly on a man but typical feminine boots or blocky slightly just bigger than men heel boots. The smoking, is this paid for by a cigarette company? Only men not interested in being the best athlete they can be whatever that level might be, smoke.

  17. jennifer stewart says:

    i love men who take care of themselves can’t say i like all the smoking pic’s but damn those are some good looking men good job

    When I saw the title I ran to open the window to then read……..:( :D But I love reading you so I gave it a change anyway :) Oh my, I’ve always thought that mens fashion is the most boring thing on earth :D My husband has had his good periods of dressing good and then the terrible times and if I dare to say something I better run and hide!!! I always have to carry around his stuff in my bag cause he’d rather be kicked in the balls then go around with man purse!!!
    I think all styles can be hot if it’s the right one for that man. I’ll probably have to do some shopping for my hubby soon but he really dislikes other buying clothes for him….poor me :D
    Again great article and take care! xoxo

    […] 图片前导收端:The Fashion Tag 既然是教院风,那么拆配起往定会是突破烦闷的惯例。饱战的明色系可以也许删减青秋感,同时看起往也较有亲战力,蓝色格纹衬衫战明黄色少裤便是一种好的配色范例,若念要低调一面,无妨将裤子换成橄榄绿或水洗牛崽裤,再拎上一只皮量足拿包,套上教院风必备的Penny Loafer,团体便会十分无缺。 […]
