Every once in awhile I like to check in on the latest trends in men’s fashion because it’s just nice to gaze at well-dressed men to see if there’s anything that I can incorporate into my own personal style. Well, ok, maybe that’s just an excuse to look at well-dressed men! It inspires you to take your style up a notch, right?

Here are a few fall fashion trends for men that have caught my eye…

Relaxed tailoring – Finally, out with the skinny jeans! Designers like Giorgio Armani kept trousers loose, but luxe with a combination of wool and velvet. Meanwhile, Italo Zucchelli’s collection for Calvin Klein included a camel-colored voluminous overcoat.

Headgear – As a fan of hats, I find that men who wear headgear to be very attractive. From berets to beanies and even top hats – they were all seen on the runways. I like the newsboy caps that were featured in the Burberry Prorsum show…

Classic suits – Every fall the designers offer up their version of the classic suit, and this fall we see suits in wool and velvet. I believe that a man’s wardrobe is not complete if he doesn’t own a classic suit. I’m thinking the Don Draper or Kobe Bryant style of suit.  However, even if you can’t purchase a new suit, you could invest in accessories such as cuff links, silk ties, or scarves to make your old suit feel new again. Check out sites like
S Buckinghams, which have a great selection of men’s accessories.

Bright colors – We are used to seeing men in black, greys, and blues, but according to Pantone’s fall 2012 color report, colors such as rhubarb, honey gold, bright chartreuse, and tangerine tango will add a little pop to the traditional palette. You could still be sophisticated by adding these colors subtly via neckties, bowties, or scarves.

Of course, what’s fashion without a little fun? As I was browsing through runway shows on YouTube, I came across Vivienne Westwood’s show in Milan. When you watch the video, you’ll find out why it gave me the giggles…
