Men Fashion Trends 2010: Sporty Chic and Suit Revisited

Saturday, 13 March 2010

men fashion trends 2010Fashion trends change every season, including in menswear. While it is untrue that clothes make the man, a person's attire does make significant difference to him. The men fashion trends depend not only on the kind of social circle a man belongs to, but also on the environment he lives in. However, being fashionable does not mean buying all the designers' hottest items. In spring-summer 2010 fashion season, things are really looking up for fashion-conscious men, as new hot trends - such as addition of sport style elements and suits, reminiscent of the golden era of Hollywood glamour - will create a truly stylish and versatile wardrobe.

Suit is Back

While suiting and formal-wear trends for men play out over several years, 2010 shall mark a distinct change in the direction of men's suiting. It comes down to a combination of factors but the likes of the economic downturn, and women's 1920's and 1930's revivals will all play a big part. But make no mistake: it's the first and last that will be the biggest influence, as well-groomed men look for investment fashion pieces and turn to the classics for inspiration.

Being the essential feature of the modern gentleman's look, the classic men's suit has undergone numerous transformations (see Gucci, Armani, Bottega Veneta and Burberry) to become the most stylish addition to the men's wardrobe.

For example, Gucci men's fashion collection for spring-summer 2010 was based around the suits which revived the dazzling era of jazz age and Hollywood glamour, with stunning white clean cut two-piece suit in combination with a contrasting dark dress shirt. White is a particularly difficult fashion choice for many men, but Frida Giannini and her spring collection make all white outfits approachable, friendly and even fun to wear for the typical guy. Giannini had two approaches to the proposition of an all white outfit. One one hand, she used a bold shirt and contrasting tie think strong reds and blues, or a black necktie even. On the other, she turned up the hardware, as was the case with field jackets and coats and their noticeably dark metals. Either way, the result was young, fresh and far from the boring, avant garde kind of look one typically expects from the all-white outfit.

However, the Italian fashion brand was the only one that opted for black and white look as other fashion houses preferred much more vivid colors for their spring collections. Jean-Paul Gaultier in his collection for Hermes combined several bold colors in one suit: dark brown (trousers), olive green (jacket) and white (shirt). This carefully selected combination of colors looks surprisingly balanced, classy and impeccably stylish.

Bottega Veneta offers an even more daring look: its suits are constellations of vivid colors - brick red, orange, bright blue, and purple. They proved that color-on-color does work, and it does wonders at creating some very forward-looking outfits. In addition, Bottega Veneta designers managed to successfully combine jeans and a classic suit jacket.

Gray pieces also look like they'll be the next big thing in men's fashion, they're already quite in vogue for neckties and suiting. Belts, shoes and bags will most probably be the next areas of your closet to be affected, so you may want to start stocking up as early as now. Gray is always good as a classic color, somewhere in between black and white, but it can also act as a contrasting style piece for either all black or all white outfits.

Even Alexander McQueen, the infant terrible of British fashion, revisited suits in his collection for spring-summer 2010, though, being true to himself, added an original touch, combining classic jackets with shorter pants.

Sporty Look

Although the suit, without a doubt, is the key element in most menswear collections for spring-summer 2010, many designers did not forget about the elements of sporty look. For example, Bottega Veneta collection included several vivid-colored polos - in crimson, orange and pale lilac hues - which designers want us to wear with suit pants and a shirt.

In Milan, Giorgio Armani showed an even more stylish interpretation of sports theme - elegant suits in quite an affordable fashion, in combination with hoodies. This look emanates relaxed, casual and sporty chic. Classic sports style attributes in clothing - shirts, polo shirts, sweatpants and hoodies - can be found in Lacoste, Lanvin, Hermes, DSquared2, and Bottega Veneta collections.

Bold Colors

You've probably got at least one friend or co-worker who likes wearing bright and eye-catching clothes when going out; it's hardly a new fashion statement. But the way things are shaping up, it looks like it'll cross the boundary between personal statement and public trend in the next couple of seasons.

Fortunately, there are several ways for you to adopt this trend, depending on how much you're willing to commit and how confident you are in your personal style. After all, not every man can wear bright colors well, or at least do so right away. Some will need more practice than others, while others prefer to limit themselves to a particular degree.

Starting with the smallest items means starting with details like a patterned pocket square, or a bold colored plastic watch (yes, they're for adults now should be paired with casual wear rather than the suit & tie look). The next level involves more visible items like your necktie, while the next up involves your shirt or even the sports coat jacket. At its most daring, the trend requires something that's visually big like a sweater or a parka that tops off your whole outfit.

Whichever way you decide to do it, there's one thing you have to keep in mind. Only one bright color should be present in your outfit, and even then be limited to three pieces at most. Too many bright shades can be overwhelming.
