Fashion Trends – Checks, Plaid, Flannel, Prints And Buffalo Checks

editboard-michael84-1-december-2013

A really big fashion trend at the moment is check and plaid patterns and prints, but most of all Buffalo prints. I got myself a t-shirt which I really love in this style which is really taking over. Have you wondered what this is called when searching for some clothing or accessories? It’s called Buffalo Check.

Most commonly seen in red and black, but you can get it in a variation of other colours such as yellow/black or blue/black. The original use was for heavy types of fabrics for use in fashion such as lumberjack shirts and jackets, but it’s now come into it’s own, and being used a lot in both men’s and women’s fashion. There’s a huge variation of clothing and accessories which are available now, here are a couple of my favourites which I have found.

ASOS T Shirt and shirt, they also have a wide range of other fashion in Buffalo including a bomber jacket, polo top and even a backpack. Topman have a few items including this really nice printed scarf, a must have if Buffalo clothing is not your style but you like the pattern enough to incorporate it within your usual outfits. King of shirts Ralph Lauren do their check shirt, as do !Solid, H&M and Zara.

ASOS BLK T Shirt – £22 – Check out the checks. This style is an absolute must this season. ASOS are on trend, offering a tee, polo, long sleeve top and even a bomber jacket in this style.

Topman Basic Baseball Tee – £18 – This is the perfect choice for me, if you are into DIY or customising your clothes this this a brilliant canvas to work on, or if you want something simple for a minimal look. Don’t spend a fortune on a hipster brand, go for an official MLB Majestic brand or high street name if baseball tees are your thing.

Criminal Damage Bomber – £70 – Bomber length, quilted and a cosmic galaxy print. It has all the fashionable bases covered. If you want to brighten up your look and stay warm, this is a good way to do it.

Topman Flecked Bomber – £35 – Complete with leopard print sleeves it stands out without being too loud and flamboyant.

Men’s Fashion Trends: Dip Dye & Tie Dye For Summer 2013

Featuring: , ,

tiedye-dipdye2

It’s not the 60s any more, but the colour from back in the day are back for Spring Summer 2013 in the form of tie dye and dip dye fashion. A few months ago I brought you the dip dye Billionaire Boys Club jeans, they look amazing and are something distinctive and different. If you want something a little different to the standard dark and light denim, they are definitely the thing to get.

Bright coluors have been the key to recent fashion trends, we have seen the Top Man Generations showcasing bright oranges, Hugo by BOSS and light pastal colours in it’s Spring 2013 campaign and others.

I really love the dip dye, and the effect it produces. When it’s done right and done with great colours, it gives amazing results with looks that will turn heads. If you are looking to add something dynamic to your wardrobe this would make a great addition.

  1. Red & white dip dye t-shirt by Worn By, with printed pattern throughout the tee. £32 at ASOS
  2. Blues to white dip dye t-shirt from United Colours Of Benetton. £23
  3. Blues and white dip dye jumper from Gant. This is such a beautiful piece, probably my favourite from this little selection. £100
  4. Dip Dye hoodie by ASOS. Blue to green colour, not the greatest colours to blend, but does not look too bad. £28
  5. Indigo tie dye shirt from TopMan. Oversized fit, £34
  6. Hype tie dye socks. Yes! Even socks have got the tie dye treatment. Hype logo from TopMan. £10/pair
  7. Billionaire Boys Club dip dye denim. Look amazing and be different with these. £215 each
