Fashion TRENDS: Men's Styles Fall 2012
Fall fashion brings sophisticated style and sleek trends to menswear this year. Fashion Week 2012 has brought on several unique new styles along with some classic returning favorites in the world of men's fashion. With the first weeks of fall right around the corner, keep an eye out for these top trends of the season.
Trending Colors (or lack thereof)
Black is always a popular fall and winter color, but this year gray is taking over. Gray is basic, functional and practically goes with anything. You can't go wrong in a charcoal or shark-skin gray suit. According to Pantone, other trending colors for men this fall include rhubarb, chartreuse, Olympian blue and some other grays and neutrals, like titanium and "French roast."
GoLocal Men's Style Expert, Rob Babigian, suggests getting rid of the summery canvas shoes, moccasins and sneakers for substantial and grounded footwear. Montgomry boots from UggAustralia, heavy-soled wing tips or Chukkas are trendy, masculine and add character to the fall and winter months.
The turtleneck is back in full force this year, especially for men. Retro style is still big and the turtleneck epitomizes that vintage feel with a refurbished and polished look. Turtlenecks are versatile for business or leisure, and are great for layering in cold, brisk weather.
