Color, Color, Color. Go bright or go home. Complement a monochromatic piece (ie. black, grey) with a blast of neon. Yes, NEON! And real guys can work pink. Muliticolored patterns can be coordinated to create a balanced sense of style.
SYNTHETICize. This season will see a resurgence of synthetic materials on the fashion runways. Majority of the items will be in accessories and complementary pieces such as jackets/top coats, murses (aka “man purse”), and hats. So be ready to spice it up with synthentics!
The FLOOD is back. Not quite a full pant. Nor a short. The three-quarter length pant is back. In the past, guys thought this was a bit too “out there”. Not anymore. Capris have gone mainstream for both male and female fashion lines. Spring 2008 will see guys dressing up this wardrobe essential with some serious hardware like skull necklaces, bracelets, rings and leather sandals.

Layer with lightness. One of the top trends this season is layering. Light Layers. Linen pants, cotton blazers, light scarves, jersey t-shirts. Each layer provides additional warmth but not additional weight. Add the following pieces to your wardrobe to stay current : 1) a pair of white/cream linen straight leg trousers, 2) a light cashmere vest 3) a linen scarf in gray or beige 4) an unlined cotton blazer.

It’s HAMMER time! MC Hammer’s sense of fashion has made a comeback this season. We will see various takes on the infamous “hammer pants. Alongside the baggy pants will come, fitted shirts and jackets, and a lot of accessories.
As always, style is a personal thing. Know who you are. Carry your clothes with confidence. And mix and match to bring the best in you.
Until next season….
