Every once in awhile I like to check in on the latest trends in men’s fashion because it’s just nice to gaze at well-dressed men to see if there’s anything that I can incorporate into my own personal style. Well, ok, maybe that’s just an excuse to look at well-dressed men! It inspires you to take your style up a notch, right?
Here are a few fall fashion trends for men that have caught my eye... Relaxed tailoring - Finally, out with the skinny jeans! Designers like Giorgio Armani kept trousers loose, but luxe with a combination of wool and velvet. Meanwhile, Italo Zucchelli’s collection for Calvin Klein included a camel-colored voluminous overcoat.

Headgear - As a fan of hats, I find that men who wear headgear to be very attractive. From berets to beanies and even top hats - they were all seen on the runways. I like the newsboy caps that were featured in the Burberry Prorsum show...

Tie Cufflinks Set From S Buckinghams
Classic suits - Every fall the designers offer up their version of the classic suit, and this fall we see suits in wool and velvet. I believe that a man’s wardrobe is not complete if he doesn’t own a classic suit. I'm thinking the Don Draper or Kobe Bryant style of suit. However, even if you can’t purchase a new suit, you could invest in accessories such as cuff links, silk ties, or scarves to make your old suit feel new again. Check out sites like S Buckinghams , which have a great selection of men’s accessories.
Bright colors - We are used to seeing men in black, greys, and blues, but according to Pantone’s fall 2012 color report , colors such as rhubarb, honey gold, bright chartreuse, and tangerine tango will add a little pop to the traditional palette. You could still be sophisticated by adding these colors subtly via neckties, bowties, or scarves.
Of course, what’s fashion without a little fun? As I was browsing through runway shows on YouTube, I came across Vivienne Westwood’s show in Milan. When you watch the video, you’ll find out why it gave me the giggles...
