Men’s fashion spring 2013: stripes

menswear spring 2013 stripes

Stripes is one of the trends seen on runways for women and men. This is a staple for any men’s wardrobe – what guy doesn’t own a striped shirt?  There’s nothing at all wrong with that..but this spring, you can try to add stripes to your work wardrobe in some other ways, like through accessories like the Orvis watches. If you wear a tie to work, I definitely recommend you get a striped tie – those were seen a lot on the spring 2013 runways. I’m loving this turquoise Michael Bastian tie.

Bright men’s accessories inspired by Pharrell Williams at the Grammy’s

I really liked how Pharrell Williams looked classy with a pop of fun wearing a turquoise bow tie to the Grammy’s this past weekend. It reminded me that guys could easily have fun with their work wardrobe by adding a pop of color through accessories, like a pocket square, tie, socks or watch. Just remember to wear only one of these bright colors at a time – all four at once would look ridiculous.

Men’s work style inspired by Justin Timberlake at the SAG awards


(Tom + Lorenzo)

Justin Timberlake’s style at this past weekend’s SAG awards was one of the more bold choices in a checkered vintage-looking print – and it worked well!  Similar to last week’s post about wearing plaid shirts at work, Justin’s outfit here is a reminder that plaid pants are also a good alternative to the plain black, navy and grays.  Here are some options:
