    Fashions New Trends Are Often Based on Old Trends

    While each generation would like to think  they are original, their fashion choices are recycled from every generation before them. Everything from the tie clip to color blocking to shoe styles are fashion trends that are reminiscent of old looks and not so forgotten by some. Still, there is a right way and a wrong way to relive these trends and it is in all how you update and style older looks to make them your own. Making older fashion trends your own creates fresh looks and gives everyone the ability to relive a trend or wear it for the first time.

    Men’s fashion trends are a lot more subtle than those for teenagers and women. Even though they are subtle changes in the cut of a jacket, the pleats on pants or the size of a pocket square, they still make a huge difference to men in the know. Everything from colors to patterns to the types of fabrics come in and out of style each and every season. It is the tried and true materials and cuts, those that work best for men and make quality clothing, that keep returning to be used by designers and are sought out by customers. All it takes is the option of having an older trend available to you that you recognize and know you can pull off to give it a try again.

    While some trends are meant for the memory book, there are others that were popular because of their practicality. Even if a trend looks dated now, it is possible to make an old trend new with a twist or quick restyle. It is important that you do not reuse a trend in the exact same way that you did several year or decades ago, but give it a fresh look and try it in a new way. If you like a specific type of shirt, tailored just the way that you like, try it out in a new fabric or in colors that are trends for this season. You might end up liking an old style even more than you did the first time around when it is based on the latest fashion trends.

    Everything that goes into making an outfit can have a fashion comeback, including your shoe and accessory choices. Pieces from the tie to the tie clip are all a big part of making sure an outfit works and gives others an idea of your personal style. Because so much of men’s wardrobe options are similar, simple pieces like these get noticed and should be chosen with care. Make sure that whatever you choose gives you the chance to stand out and get noticed for a a good reason. Like the rest of your style, not every trend is going to be appreciated by everyone, but as long as you are happy with your choices it is the perfect choice for you.

    Modern trends in men’s fashion

    The new trends in fashion for men are changing the way that men dress. So many men are changing up their style in ways that mark a contrast in colors and tones.

    One of the newest trends involves men combining brown shoes with black pants. This is a lot different than what men have been used to in previous decades. In the past it was more common for men to wear matching colors. It was more of a fashion statement for women to wear abstract contrasting combinations. Today, however, there is a lot of talk about men and their contrasting color schemes.

    Much of this is because of the plethora of celebrities that are being dressed by stylists. Many male celebrities that are guests on talk shows will come on shows with a pair of shows that contrast the color of the suit. This trend quickly caught on and became a norm for men that wore dressy shoes. It is often said that a stylish dress shoe will go with anything. It doesn’t really matter what color the shoe is. That is one of the new style rules in fashion for men. It is more about the look and quality of the shoe than it is about the color.

    Another thing that is changing the way that men dress is the sports coat. Men often have to do a sport coat vs blazer comparison in the mirror before leaving the home. This is not the case anymore. Many people have actually started to wear the blazers more because this is deemed trendy and dressy casual. Men may still choose the blazer for a formal affair, but many men are seeing the value of the sports coats. A lot of men like this because they can wear it with a pair of jeans or dress pants. The sports coat is considered versatile so the sale of these coats in really growing in popularity.

    There are a lot of men that get their fashion tips from television and music artists that they like. Others may take tips from athletes or artists that are at top of the best dressed lists. The most common way for men to get fashion tips, however, is through their significant other. There are many men that have learned to become trendier dressers because their wives are picking out their clothes.

    Many men have started to wear pink ties and shirts and much of this has to do with the women that have a hand in the fashion trends for men. Another thing that has become popular is the army styled shirts that look like uniforms in the shoulder area. Many men have begun to wear this along with jeans. Some men wear these shirts with casual dress pants.

    The modern trends for men today consist mainly of a lot of lighter colors. In the past many men were simply wearing brown and black colors with few variations. Today many men have embraced brighter colors and jacket styles.

    Dad Jeans are Ugly!

    When it comes to fashion, everyone usually goes for the trend that’s happening right now. When it comes to men you always see the new fashion jeans but there are the few individuals that will wear dad jeans. They are absolutely hideous to say the least. If you haven’t seen what they looked like before try to imagine the 70′s and what the clothing was like during those days. These types of jeans are usually faded like a light blue color. They go way up the man’s bottom depending on the size that is purchased and this is because they are made high wasted. Some of them are way to big and look funny. They will even make some men look bow legged when their not.

    It really narrows down to the fact that the way the jeans are sewed together at the seems that gives it the ugliest look out there. Dad jeans are so ugly that they are hardly ever purchased. If they are purchased it’s because they are discounted so low in price that the company selling them might as well give them away for free. They have never been seen on any man to where it fits them perfectly. They just have a weird look about them.

    Don’t get me wrong though some people seriously still wear these jeans. Even our current President Obama was seen wearing these type of jeans out in public. He stated something along the lines that he wore them due to his age and that they were in fact comfortable. To say the least, I would personally find a different brand or type of jeans to wear then something that looks aweful, especially considering if I was President of the United States.

    Back in the day, when watching some old time shows such as Full House or maybe even Fresh Prince of Bel Air, you would see the actors wearing these jeans or mom jeans. It looked natural for that was the time era of when the shows were played. Looking back at it now you can see how ridiculous those jeans were and how they are definitely not a part of today’s hot fashion trend. So the main thing to keep in mind, is if you see these types of jeans on sale or for free at any company, do not pick up a pair. They are the ugliest jeans that anyone could get and are definitely not worth spending money on.
