When it comes to fashion tips for men it can be difficult to know where to turn for inspiration. Whereas women can look to celebrities for guidance, men may find it difficult to aspire to David Beckham’s tendency for metrosexual faux pas, such as THAT sarong or the hideous matching his and hers outfits. Alas, most of today’s sporting celebrities tend to favour that metrosexual look, which in 2012 is looking more than a little tired. Instead, men would do well to to emulate Esquire Magazine and its recently voted best dressed man, Christian Bale, who combines his brooding good looks with sexy sharp suits to create an image of intrigue and power. For a more ‘street’ image, opt for Grammy award-winning U.S. rapper Lupe Fiasco’s inspired look, combining layers and tailored jackets.
Fashion trends indicate that the return of the real man. Tailoring will play a big part, the skinny suit is dead and a more ‘full cut’ design for comfort and style will replace it. Bold colours are in, such as orange, green and blues, so those pink shirts of 2008 should be promptly packed off for recycling! Tailored Jackets are the ‘IT’ item to have in 2012, as are V-neck sweaters, jumpers and cardigans.
V-necks can be difficult to carry off, especially as the trend indicates that clothing will be cut with a deep V-neck plunge! If you are going to adopt this trend then you could try layering, but that may well defeat the purpose. Just remember, scraggly chest hair is not really sexy (after all, it destroyed Ryan Giggs’ status as a sex symbol) and the pigeon-chested look is not good either, so apply extreme caution when choosing V-necks!
