Fashion changes almost as much as some men change their bed sheets – at least once every six months. It can be hard to keep up, but don’t worry; we’ve checked out the hottest in men’s fashion trends for 2011 so you don’t have to do it yourself. One hot trend that’s emerging is floral patterns – these were all over the catwalk, everywhere from paisley shirts to louder flowery options and some great beach shorts, suggesting the designers are trying to alter the way men view fashion.
Of course, it wasn’t all about the feminine patterns on the 2011 catwalks. Another hot item for men is the blazer. These were particularly abundant in soft, block colors such as pale mauve, grey, green and blue, which are really versatile colors. This makes your blazer wearable for any occasion, whether it’s a formal event or something more social. Blazers are also superbly tailored, attractive and their great lines are flattering on any man, making this a great trend for 2011.
Blazers weren’t the only jacket style on the 2011 catwalks; leather jackets were seen dotted around, too. The bomber style seemed to be particularly popular, affecting a great sporty look that works well on any man. Leather bomber jackets are a great way of keeping out the chill, particularly at more casual occasions such as sporting events and they come with loads of pockets, making them practical as well as fashionable. Wear it unzipped over a shirt for a laidback, ultra-hip look.
Of course, fashion is nothing if not ever so slightly odd from time to time, which may explain why crop tops were a key trend on the men’s 2011 catwalks. This may sound like one for the women, but trust us, it’s not. We’re not talking about tiny crops here, more like loose tees that are just a bit shorter than normal. These are really flattering if you’ve got a great set of abs to show off and are surprisingly. They’re most popular in block colors like black and white.
Another slightly surprising entry to the list of men’s fashion trends for 2011 is lace and other sheer clothes. Again, this may sound like something from the women’s catwalks, but worn in the right way, it can look great on men, too. Sheer shirts were especially popular and could be fantastic when worn on a summer vacation – they’d be really great for showing off your tan on the beach and are also brilliant for layering over other things, giving you plenty of options.
