How To Style Men’s Co-Ords Trend

Men's Co-Ords Fashion - How to Style

It’s been getting more and more popular in recent times, and now one of the trends for a lot of guys, I’m finally going to talk about the men’s co-ords trend. It is of course nothing brand new, I’ve featured myself wearing some menswear which are part of a twin set as far back as a couple of years ago, and it had a fashionable entrance to a lot of guy’s wardrobes before then.

It kind of comes from the women’s side of fashion, with the likes of women’s two pieces, playsuits and their own co-ords being quite a norm. Now more and more guys are wearing coords, some looking good, others not.

Men’s Fashion Trends To Avoid In 2020 – You Should NEVER Wear These

Tuesday, 14th May, 2019

Menswear Trends You Should Avoid And Stay Stylish

We all want to look good when we wear our clothes, right? I mean, that’s kind of why we buy them, and why we buy what we buy. If we just bought clothing for the sake of it, we’d probably all be running around in the same, cheap and boring stuff.

I spend a lot of time writing about good things, classic timeless pieces, staple menswear, must have items and trends as well as what you should wear and when. But what about things you should avoid?

It’s a bit negative to talk about the terrible fashion mistakes and the trends you should avoid, but I think it’s kind of necessary.

When it comes to your own personal style, you can rock what you want, and everyone will be different, which is cool. But there’s some things which are just universally terrible, and 2020 trends you really should avoid in my opinion.

Here’s what not to wear, and the trends you should avoid.

Tie Dye Fashion Trend – The Best Tie Dye T-Shirts And How To Wear Them

Tie Dye Fashion Trend For Spring Summer 2019

When it comes to fashion trends, they come and go. It looks like we’re heading for the return of another trend, with a lot of fashion labels embracing it for women, but does it work for men? I am talking about the tie dye trend, which has made an appearance this Spring, and if it will be adopted, should last all summer long.

When it comes to on-trend styles, tie-dye has not been seen for years as something cool, in fact, I can’t remember the last time I saw it. It has roots from the 60’s where it was hugely popular, especially among the hippy set, heavily influenced with the music and festivals.

But it is now back, so will you be picking up any pieces?

How To Style A Denim Jacket In Winter – Layering Tips

Denim Jacket In Winter - Men's Style Tips

Have you ever thought about wearing a denim jacket in the Autumn or Winter?

For me, this is a big no-no. I have always considered the denim jacket a Summer item, or transitioning from Spring to Summer. Jean jackets are lightweight, and great for throwing over a tee in the Summer.

But what if you want to wear one in the Winter? Can you wear a denim jacket in Winter? Are they style rules, and how can you style it?

One word – Layering.

Check out the whole outfit below and see how I’ve styled it.

Men's Style: Open Shirt With T-Shirt Combinations

Hey guys I hope you are well! Summer is nearing the end, so I thought it was about time I shared this outfit idea, the Shirt and T-Shirt combination. A really simple style to pull off, which combines a couple of simple items and looks really great this season, without too much effort.

For this look I’ve gone all Uniqlo. You may remember a while back I bought these at Uniqlo, that is the blue linen shirt, plain white T-shirt and these cream chinos.

Yellow Sweatshirt Fashion Trend: Autumn 2017

Yellow Fashion Trend For Autumn 2017

Have you noticed how much yellow is around right now!?

I love the yellow fashion trend for Autumn. It’s not a particular colour which is synonymous for Autumn, but it’s one which I have noticed over the past several weeks, and it’s one I really like. Now the colder weather is here it’s time to wrap up and layer up, and what better way than with sweatshirts!

There are so many different yellow shades and tones, from mustard to bright yellow and a more pastel, pale yellow, which is my favourite. I have spotted this trend, but there’s actually not a lot of choice out there.

My preference to sweats these days is sweatshirts over hoodies, but there’s still a lot of hoodies which menswear brands are releasing. Sweatshirts have regained popularity in the past year or so, and you can check out my sweatshirt guide for everything you need to know about sweats and how to style them.

Mens Fashion Trends: Hawaiian Shirts For The Summer

Aloha!

What are your thought on Hawaiian shirts?

Just a gimmick, or are these loud shirts actually stylish?

I have to say that I am starting to like them, they are another item to have in your wardrobe that you can pull out every now and then to give yourself some individuality in a world where a lot of guys are wearing the same things this summer.

If you’re looking for a men’s fashion trend which may not be your usual style, the Hawaiian shirt could be something to consider to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Men’s Fashion Trends 2017: Pink For Spring

Friday, 24th March, 2017

Pink Sweatshirt For Men

Spring has arrived, and with it, it’s brought a new fashion trend. Several weeks ago I read that the pantone colour of the year 2017 was green, specifically a green they call Greenery, which is quite a dirty, mid-to-light green, quite a solid colour. There’s been lots of fashion produced in this colour for this season too, as well as other shades of green, signalling it could be big for Spring, but for me, it’s not. The big trend for Spring, at least the first half, is pink!

Specifically a light or pale pink. I’ve seen a couple of pieces of clothing and fashion in this colour, I already own a few bits and pieces too, and I love it. A really deep or bold pink can be hard to wear and difficult to pull off, with the colour being seen as a feminine option usually. Pale shades are synonymous with Springtime, with grey, white, beige, red, blue, green and yellow all being worn, you can add pink to that list too.
