Buttoned-up shirt collars: women's fashion trend

Forget the grungy, layered-over flannel, and tuck away your baggy, open-fronted boyfriend shirt (for now). Fashion, as fashion is wont to do, has taken a pendulum swing in the other direction, hitting on a more refined, sophisticated look. And so starting now there's only one key way to wear your shirt: buttoned up to the very top.

The brilliant thing about the done-up collar as a fashion trend is that it's simple, requires nothing all that new (feel like giving new life to all those old shirts in your wardrobe? Read on) and it's trans-seasonal: start wearing it in Summer 2010 and carry it through to Fall 2010.

Capes, capelets and cloaks: 2010 fashion trend

Capes. Say the word, and images of masked superheros mid-flight are what immediately pops into many people's minds.

But capes and cloaks have existed, in one variety or another, through much of our known human history. From early Medieval mantles, to 16th century decorative shawls; from military officers capes and 1940s fur stoles, to the fringed ponchos of the 1960s. But since the humble poncho had its hippie revival, the cape in its more sophisticated forms has seen nothing of a major comeback on the streets - that is, until now. The cape is back on the agenda as one of the major 2010 fashion trends.

Futurism and sci-fi: futuristic fashion trend

Futurism. It's something of a paradox. The future cannot be predicted; but in envisioning it, we can create self-fulfilling prophecies. You could go crazy just thinking about it - so instead let's just say that the dawn of a new decade has sent 2010's fashion trends into sci-fi and futurism overdrive.

So how do we define futuristic fashion? As a Spring 2010 fashion trend it seems to be less about gadgetry and more about future environments. We're faced with collections that contemplate dystopia or evolutionary change. Topics of science fiction are woven into the threads of some designers' clothing, while others base their designs on more traditional views of futurism.

A Look at Versace's Mens Summer Fashion for 2010:

Versace is one of those unmistakable names in fashion that always scream 'luxury', the same ones that conjure images of weirdly cut pants and uncomfortable jackets. The Italian label’s collection for spring and summer of this year, however, yields some basic facts about dressing in the heat. Here are some of the lessons you should pick up without having to spend too much.

Embrace the V-Neck
Men’s fashion is stuck with countless traditions, like the one that says the manly man is one dressed to the hilt, in a shirt, necktie and suit. Versace, however, seems to want to buck this edict. V-necks are the name of the Versace game, and it’s looking like a very comfortable and summer-friendly game indeed.

Don’t be afraid to bare a bit more skin with a v-neck tee. After all, it’s one of the few skin-flashing styles that you can pull off without a gym-built body. You can afford to show off a little more neck, throat and collarbone even when you lack pecs, abs and all the other features of the standard Abercrombie model.

The fashion house was also kind enough to show how men ought to choose and wear a v-neck tee. Look for simple, un-printed ones, preferably with a neutral or light color so that there’s little to distract a viewer from all the extra skin you’re showing. Baring the extra skin is dramatic enough, so you can let that make the style statement for you.

Necklace Knowledge
Complementing Versace’s v-necks for the season is an expansive range of necklaces. Now, that’s a daunting style challenge for most men, especially since guys don’t do jewelry beyond watches, cuff links and wedding bands.

There is, however, a very good reason for you to take a stab at wearing necklaces in the summer. In the fall, you can create a very interesting outfit by layering different styles over each other. With the high temperatures of summer, layers aren’t really a realistic prospect. Jewelry and other accessories like necklaces give your outfit some personality without adding any weight – or layers, for that matter – on your body.

For guys, one or two necklaces is usually enough. Something masculine like a dog tag, or simple like a small pendant on a hefty chain, will do the trick. If you want to take them to the next level, however, wear your necklaces the way Johnny Depp wears his – all at the same time. It’s a quick and painless way to give your outfit an artsy, Bohemian feel.

Sheer Genius
Partially transparent and sheer clothing is yet another style minefield for a lot of men. Keeping your torso visible isn’t a very popular look for guys, whatever the season. The House of Versace, however, shows you how this could actually be pulled off.

Unless you’re going to a rave party, sheer styles simply cannot stand by themselves; you’ll look too much like a fashion victim from the 80’s. Balance out the transparency with opaque pieces – another shirt, say, or a jacket – to keep your exposure down to a tasteful amount. It’s reasonable to want to show small flashes of skin; it’s garish to display your whole chest to the rest of the world.

This kind of aesthetic is very hard to pull off if you have a less than ideal body, so it’s something you’ll want to think about before you try it. If you have a pigeon chest, say, or man-breasts, some time at the gym might be in order. Otherwise, there’s a number of less body-conscious styles out there for you to try this summer.

Remember that you don’t necessarily have to do all these combinations using brand name clothing. Versace is still firmly on the higher end of the fashion market. Once you know what makes each ‘look’ work, however, you should be able to recreate them using even the most plebian of wardrobes.

Men's Military Trend.

Fashion in Combat: Men's Military Trend 2009-2010.

The military shape always has been a fashion driven trend for the colder months; but for Autumn (Fall)/Winter 2009-2010 designers such as Gareth Pugh, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Burberry have modified and transformed the combat uniform from the past to the now. Gareth Pugh, with one of the most unusual menswear collections for A/W 09-10 has brought inspiration from the likes of German officer overcoats from the Second World War to the metal chain mail suits that were worn under suits of armour.

Movies can also be seen as a heavy influence in Pugh's A/W collection with feathers for shoulder decoration as inspiration from The Crow including the Gothic ripped trousers and black boots and the metallic body combat suit, a similar cut to Christian Bale's costume in Equilibrium.

Burberry: Have opted for the more settled approach to the trend with tailored coats inspiring from French naval officers and a two tone pea coat that is linked again to the Second World War.

D&G: Have used the patterned Musketeer jacket detailing that was later used on band uniforms and other military jackets. No doubt the high street will be quick to follow in their footsteps with this popular design.

And of course John Galliano has expanded the old swash-buckling clothing that the pirates and old Captains would have worn on the ships of the deepest seas. He included the old white wigs and fold-over leather boots to really help support the history that he is repeating on the catwalk.

80's Mens fashion.

Remember the 80's:

It was the decade of decadence, reminiscent of the Roaring 20's. New clothes, new music and new dances arrived on the scene one right after the other. The women wore leg warmers and the men wore skinny ties. Ronald Reagan was president and the Berlin wall came down. The music was some of the best since the 1950's, and it seemed everyone was carefree. The clothing definitely matched the attitudes of the day, covering everything from neon bright colors to parachute pants.

Most Popular 80's Men's Fashion:

Power Dressing:
While the women were wearing shoulder pads to look more masculine, men discovered pinstripes again. Suits were made of natural materials, such as wool, cotton and silk, an image of higher quality. The pinstripes were not as wide as those from the 1930's and 1940's but very similar to pinstripes from the 1970's.

Three-piece suits were not popular and lapels on suit jackets became narrower. Neckties lost weight and became skinny; some of the leather ties were a mere thin strap, which can be seen in movies like Footloose.

Miami Vice:
Love color? The 1980's were full of bright colors, even in men's fashion. Men began to adapt the look from Miami Vice, a hit television series starring Don Johnson. This look paired a casual T-shirt with a suit jacket, typically worn open. The T-shirt colors were anything from pastel to coral and the suit was typically white. This look also featured loafers worn without socks.

Most people have probably seen the video and dance in the movie 13 Going on 30, and there are many popular parodies and clips on YouTube, but did you know that the Thriller video, released in 1982, inspired a whole new fashion craze in 80's men's fashion? Teenagers tried to emulate Michael Jackson by wearing matching black (or red) leather pants and leather jackets, a single glove and sunglasses. In fact, many teenagers wore their sunglasses even after dark, which was popularized by song lyrics such as "I wear my sunglasses at night". Later in the 1980's, brown leather aviator jackets, replicated after the World War II fighter pilot jackets, became popular.

Conservatism was in and actors such as Michael J. Fox, who played the preppy Alex P. Keaton on Family Ties, wore looks that were conservative. The preppy look was characterized by polo shirts in specific brands, such as Izod, Brooks Brothers, and Polo Ralph Lauren. Khakis, argyle sweaters and loafers completed the look. The sweaters could be monogrammed with the wearer's initials, and worn tied around the shoulders.

Sports suits by companies such as Adidas were popular as well. Many people were into fitness and sports, and people were very loyal to particular brands. This seemed to taper off in the late 1980's and many of these brands have never quite regained the same popularity as they once had.

The long, thick sideburns of the 1970's went out of style in 1980's men's fashion. Big hair was in, for both men and women. Styling mousse became as necessary as a big comb to fluff your feathered bangs. From 1984 to 1986, sideburns came back but were short and thin, as opposed to the longer, thicker sideburns of the 1970's. While mullets were popular in suburbia, a more professional look was required of businessmen, who wore very short hair. In the late 80's in men's fashion, it was not popular to part the hair.

Teens loved the color and functional style of Swatches. Also arriving on the scene was the Seiko Television Watch. This nifty little gadget allowed the wearer to watch TV on the run, and was symbolic of the fast pace and burgeoning technology of the day.

Although some of the fashions from the 80's probably shouldn't be repeated, there are many interesting looks from which to choose. Try adding just one or two features, such as a skinny tie or a white jacket over a T-shirt to create a unique, retro look.

Gents fashion tips.

Fashion trends today keep changing every season. And so you are here to read this article. Well probably this article is not to discuss the latest from Armani or Gabbana. The trends keep changing anyway.There are a few trends that haven't changed for quite some time and thus are the latest. Have you ever considered them?

There are trends that have been set and we still follow them. Every one does that too - even the wildest of the designers. Have your ever seen a designer use only one shoe for his/her model, or probably half a necklace? These trends have been set and it will take ages to get out of this mind set too.

There have been the things that stay and stay. We generally sport them, but kind of ignore them.

Tried and Tested Methods:

There are tried and tested methods and we will not do that. Even for the sake of looking different we wouldn't do that.

All in all, what I want to say is simple: Our trends depend not just on the kind of social circle that we have, but even on the environment we live on, the climates, the feel and more importantly how happy we are when wearing something.

From the simple polo shirts, T-shirts, sweaters, jackets, jeans to suits and khakis, they are all there in our wardrobes. The trends, the latest fashions may only add a few jazzy colors, few logos and few statements. The trends change, but the base always remains.

Some trends that appeal to any man:

Military wear: You got it into your mind as soon as you read it. The extra pockets, and the manly feel they add is far above any competition from other kind of looks. Khakis, jackets, caps are the in things. Add white and black to them and you will feel the difference right away.

Polo Shirts: This tops the list of shirts. Wear a polo shirt with a jeans, it is casuals. Add a nice coat, the corporate will invite you. And when you want to mix both formals and casuals, wear a zip-up jacket. Polo shirt will serve you, anywhere, anytime.

Layering: It's in at last. And is here to stay. Wear a sweat shirt, cover it up with a cool cotton with half sleeves. And then top it up with a jacket with no sleeves. And if possible add more. But it works, especially in winters and more so with the women around.

Logos: This is not a new style either. If you know you have enough money and don't know what to wear, then go the biggest and trendiest store that you find. Put your money and flaunt your logos. But make sure, you don't get too loud or too calm.

Use your creativity to mix up things to get what you want. And if you still haven't understood the trend today its all in one word 'Simplicity'. Keep it simple, Keep it strong. Way to go bro!

No longer just for formal events, sequins are making their appearance on everything from basic tanks to jackets, like this Gibron slate sequin jacket.


The sequin jacket looks newest when paired with jeans and tees; go for a high-low type look by mixing the sequins with casual pieces. It would also work great with shorts for a sexy evening look. Although slate sequins go with black and white, it would also work with a pop of color like bright blue.
