The Top 5 Best & Worst Men’s Fashion Trends Of 2010
Urban men’s fashion continues to clean up in many ways, while becoming more experimental in other aspects. From gender-bending pieces to classic gentlemen looks, I’ve rounded up my top five picks of the best and worst trends for men in 2010:
Class is in session, with this preppy and polished look.
The traditional varsity jacket has been revamped with new details, graphics and more.
Straying from typical athletic or retro 80s flashy styles, brands have blurred the lines between dress shoes, boat shoes, boots and sneakers—and it works.
Bow ties have increased in popularity, going easily from tuxedos to casual ensembles. Go for fun, youthful prints and colors to spice up your button down shirt.
The gentleman is back. From sneakers to colorful oxford shoes, the wingtip design ran rampant this year, adding a classy feel to footwear.
Harem pants were difficult enough to accept on the ladies, but on men…I just can’t.
We’ve seen many of otherwise attractive button down shirts, tees, jackets etc. be overtaken by graphics, as you can see above. Keep it minimal. Less is often more.
No need to precisely match your fitted to your shirt and kicks. Ditch the matchy-matchy look and instead opt for contrasting prints and colors.
There are some looks that should stick with one gender. Men in tights are just not cute, unless you’re Superman.
Just because you’re rocking a tie, it doesn’t mean you’ve added instant class to your look. “Tacky ties” are not exactly a trend, but we’re still seeing too many of them around. I prefer skinnier ties in solid colors or cool prints.
Unless you’re part of The Jersey Shore cast, I like to see men stick to a classic pair of Levi’s 501s, or something along those lines.
