Fashion Trends For Men Only
This year brings some great new looks for men.
By Sharon Stajda,
Men's Winter fashion this year offer men a chance to Zip up their wardrobes, with great colors, and new tailoring to otherwise boring styles. Winter fashion trends dictate a new flair in men's fashion. It seems that the last five years or so men's fashions have gotten very typical, neutral, and somewhat boring." Not this winter bud, all the boring has been put under. What you can expect to find on the racks this Winter is bold patterns, suits that are fitted, double breasted with wider cut lapels, and in sports trousers think shorter lengths... Oh, and tons to of hats... It appears that the designer's have looked back to the 1940s, and mixed it all up , to come out with some fabulous manly fashions. Think "Clark Gable" or "Boggie", and you will be on the right track.
What's Up With Shirts
Take shirts for instance, this winter trends will give all you guys a chance to wear a tie, with a bold plaid shirt! Oh, and over sized checks with bold patterned stripes...Mixed patterns will totally dominate this season. So stock up...The trend this winter will give you permission to mix patterns, so, enjoy and have some fun with the trend. Try a tweed jacket, with a complimentary plaid shirt (make sure your shirt pulls in one of the jackets color pallet) and a pair of jeans. Couldn't hurt to add a bold colored scarf, now could it?
Step It Up With A Just A Bit Of Color
For The Man That Tend To Appreciate The Classics - Men, an easy way to step out of your comfort zone is actually with color. Start off by perhaps adding a trendy winter colored cardigan or vest to your wardrobe or maybe just a shirt, or a vivid new scarf. Just a little bit of color can lend an updated look to your otherwise classic look.
However, men's fashion hues are similar to the women's fashions for the winter season of 2016 . Colors are strictly masculine. The old stand-by or should I say reliable basic colors are on trend. To including hues such as, Tans, Coffee browns Cedar-wood, Deep dark Teal, Dark deep Burgundy, gray, and as always black. These basic classic colors anchor the palette for menswear this fall and winter, while you may see a few vibrant accents colors around on the racks, for the brave at heart....
If you are a man that enjoys a bit of color in your wardrobe, choose colors like deep shades of gold, Burnt Sienna, deep wine. Hopefully you will be satisfied with just a bit of a pop in color. Although orange is muted to give a more masculine feel to a garment. Burnt Sienna orange is a great standard color that serves as the standard, fall accent color.
Winter Accessories Think Subdued Color
Where To Add Color
Let's talk accent pieces, which can include ties, scarves and pocket squares. This might be where you might consider using one of the more vivid fall colors. Try a pop of orange or red when choosing a tie or scarf. Want a toned down alternative, choose your accessory in tones of Honeysuckle yellow , deep Raspberry wine or a deep wood tone. There is still a place for a wonderful sparkling Merlot wine or a deep Chestnut brown. However, if you want to stay on trend, and make a statement, pick an accessory on red or one of the brighter hues of winter.. I suggest if your base color (shirt , trouser, coat) is muted, such as charcoal, black, brown, add some color to make your outfit work for you.... A Deep Teal, Cedar-wood, Raspberry Wine is a spectacular with the basics. Wine color is perfect with navy or gray. Accessories - all bright colors should be in the trendy guys closet.
The Shape Of Things To Come
That Is In Fashion Anyway In addition to classic subdued colors, cardigans and vests with V-necks, are among a must have this winter season. Men also will notice that the trousers are getting an update. This winter you will see the racks full of trousers with pleated fronts, and loose fitting at the leg, mirroring the trousers of the fifties... Suits as last year have the shorter two button jacket, but again the trousers are not as form fitting.
Mens Winter Fashion Must Haves
Trendy Men - Must Haves For Winter Of 2015/2016. Every fashionable man should have a sport coat in his closet. Trendy men think pattern, yes pattern. The patterned sports coat is a must for a guy that likes to keep up totally with trend on fashions. Now, of coarse you know you still need that stand out navy blazer,( every man needs a basic navy blazer) but a great pattern blazer or even a sporty tweed coat is a must for the trendy man...A tweed flannel sports coat is a great look for fall. The trend setter will also need a front pleated trouser, and a skinny pair of faded jeans, and a pair of relaxed baggy jean. What's up in sweaters for trend setters - you name it, stripes are popular, along with patterns, and solid bright colored sweaters.

Hey ! Some Fashion Rules Need To Be Broken.... Don't you agree ?
Trends You Should Know About For The Winter Season - Some fashion rules are meant to be broken. One such rule this season, Matching Leather Accessories
Leather Accessories Very On Trend
Think Leather accessories, belts and shoes, no longer have to match. Mix it up boys!
Though for many years you were encourage you to match the color of your belt to your shoes, not this winter. This can be tossed this season. "I've always thought this was a very boring rule. I like the mix of leather - it just shows more personality.
Choosing the right Tie, It's always a difficult task. One of the most difficult fashions for men to select is a tie to go with a given outfit. So, many choices, so little room to express once personality.... Not this season lads .... Go with your gut ... Like Large-paisley prints, and plaids, hey, it's out there for fall. Let your personality shine when picking that perfect tie.
You Like Comfort? The final decision when making a clothing purchase should still come down to comfort. Whenever you try on clothes, the first thing you should ask yourself is, am I comfortable?' If you are not comfortable, then the garment will just hang in your closet. So, never buy a garment that you are not sure you will be comfortable wearing. Don't let trend dictate all you purchase. Make sure you can pull off any garment you purchase.
Must Have - A Black Leather Trench Coat Is A Real Classic.
Would you pass this longer statement coat by, not even think of trying it on... Well, you might just be afraid of fashion. Next time you see a garment that you actually like the look of, however, pass it by. Hey, back up try that garment on. You may just be ready for a fashion upset !

Wear Styles That Fit And Flatter Your Body Type
Choose colors that you like, and that fits your personality and lifestyle. An older man can get away with wearing most trends, as long as he mixes it up. What I mean by this, mix classical fashions with new trendy fashions.
Although, it is wise to tone down the trendy look as you age. You can easily accomplish this by choosing to add one or two piece's of trendy clothing when putting together an outfit. Adding classic fashion with trendy fashions, can give you a great look...
Such as, let's say you want an updated casual look, pair jeans with a plaid shirt, and for trend on fashion, add boots with your jeans tucked into the boot, and if you're a hat guy, add a hat or just a scarf... You get the idea. You will be on trend, and have that edgy look you are going for. The tip - mix classic with trend, you will be able to create a great individual look, a look that may just show a bit of your wonderful personality.
Another good tip, make sure whatever garment you purchase fits well. This will help your look be right on... You can let your personality come through, without looking as if you are working to hard at it, if you know what I mean...

Finding A Great Cologne
How To Choose A Signature Men's Cologne
It can actually be mush like choosing the proper suit or what shoes to wear with that suit. A signature cologne should fit your personality, and lifestyle. When it comes to knowing how to pick a cologne, first choose a base scent you like and feel comfortable wearing . Most men's colognes have been designed with a strong note of musk, sandalwood or citrus, which go to provides the foundation for lighter notes in cologne which are spice and floral . Sometimes it is not easy to find just the right mixture of these notes to suit one's liking. A good signature scent can make your presence in the room pleasant and memorable. Remember your signature cologne can often be the first impression when you enter a room full of people.
Here are a few good tips to help you find the perfect cologne. A cologne that will become your signature scent...
1. Find the right store, a store that has many various of men's colognes. This will give you the best selection, and the opportunity to really smell many different colognes in one place.
2. Always smell a cologne first from the bottle. If you like the scent, spritz a small amount on a tester strip, let it stand for a bit, the smell the strip about 12 inches from your nose. It is important to let the scent settle. Never spray the cologne on your skin, until you find a cologne that you are interested in. Keep in mind you will try on multiple scents, and the scents will combine on your skin, making it more difficult to choose one single fragrance.
3.After sample smelling each fragrance that you like, be sure to sniff a bit of coffee beans. Coffee as a rule will be available at the sales counter. Coffee helps clear each given aroma from your nasal cavity. This will provide you with a more "true" smell of every and cologne you choose to smell.
4.Once you have narrowed your search down to a given few fragrances, ask the sales clerk for sample of the selected colognes. This way, you can try several different scents one at a time. You can then see how they react to your body chemistry throughout the day. Oils and hormones in individuals may cause fragrances to smell differently, so it is important to give a fragrance a trial run.
5.After trying the sample colognes for at least a week, you should be able to know if you are comfortable wearing a given fragrance. Before buying take into consideration how comfortable you were wearing the scent, did you receive any feedback on the scent from friend and co-worker? Were the comments positive or negative? If all comments were positive, and you love the scent, return to the store to purchase a bottle of the fragrance, I recommend a small bottle just to make sure you have made the right choice.
A Few More Things To Consider
Make sure when you wear cologne to apply just a bit -- you don't want to overpower people around you.
Apply cologne to the following pulse points: the inside of your wrists, behind your ears, and on your neck.
Make sure to keep cologne bottles out of the warm temperatures , this will give the cologne a longer shelf life.
If you want your scent to last longer , uses the same fragrance in a shower gel, aftershave, and moisturizer.
Never spray your cologne on clothing. It may stain.
Do not rub your wrists together after applying cologne. The rubbing action will break down the oils in the cologne and change the scent of the fragrance.
