Style Essentials for Men in SS-2012
Spring 2012 is all about casual comfort and this is seen in the runway trends for the Men’s fashion, all the season. Designers from all over, have brought casual and hassle free collection, this entire season. SS/12 is focussed on three pointers: Bright colours, Accessories, and Footwear. BM has been researching on the Style Trends for Men, this season and thus, we bring your way, the five essentials for Summer style.
Pink, Red and Yellow are no more, a female fashion forte. SS/12 saw a major change in Men fashion, as bright and bold colours. If Lanvin brought Fresh Yellow, Trussardi came in with royal Plum, then Moshchino brought tangerine, so Frankie Morello made it blush with Pink. And men are no more colour shy. They like to experiment with different looks and getting handy on to the colour palette is a part of their everyday style. From bright hues shirts to colourful chinos, men can be seen embracing this trend everywhere. Topping the style charts at BM is a cherry-plum formal jacket suit by Cavalli
Playing with the Length
SS/12 is all about comfort. And men define comfort in Bermuda Shorts. When Louis Vuitton’s Spring runway came in pastel Bermuda shorts, our BM boys could not stop themselves in bringing it to their routine style. Not only shorts, we also saw ankle length chinos and cropped pants, in the style newbies section. You can experiment with your formal look, just by folding the edges of your pants. Wear a semi-casual shoes to complete the look.
Men’s Footwear rack is no more a stack of Blacks and Browns. Funky casual footwear is seen everywhere in the men’s style category. Designers like Burberry and D&G, everyone is accentuating their collection by adding unusual footwear patterns. BM boys are drooling over the latest footwear collection by Prada. Apart from the runway, men footwear has a whole new definition. The formal shoes has been replaced by semi-casual lace shoes, and the canvas shoes are taking the shape of Loafers. One trend that is a huge hit during summers is open sandals. Men are experimenting with bright coloured casual slip-ons.
No style is complete without accessorising yourself. And men today, are swearing up to this mantra. From trendy watches, to silken scarves, men are adding everything to their style statement. 2011 saw many accessories like hair-bands, bracelets, and chunky neck-pieces being in the top row. 2012 has an interesting addition to the men runway collection. Designers like Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Burberry brought stylish patterns of men bags, in different styles. You can add the one that suits your requirements and personality. BM simply loves the Casanova look from Gucci.
Print My World
Apart from the bold coloured chinos and bright hues Polo necks, the trend that is a synonym for summers is “Prints”. Category may vary from florals, to animal, and even tribal, fashionistas are simply loving them. For men, the latest rage is Print Pants. Designers all over, have brought this trend live and it is majorly accepted worldwide. BM simply loves the yum print collection by Giorgio Armani. Team your print pants with a neutral shade shirt for that balanced summery look.
