Men’s Fashion

Mens Fashion

Living in 2014, one can hardly imagine one’s life without any fashion influence. It does not matter if you are a boy or a girl, fashion in a modern world becomes more than just clothing – it is all about the statement. The male half of the world, is in fact, as concerned about fashion as much as the female half is! Some men even make clothing the most important aspects of their lives. The market was dominated by women’s fashion, but the glass ceiling is being slowly broken, and here is one more step toward achieving that equality – Ladies and of course, my dear Gentlemen, The New Dealer proudly presents the new section of this newspaper, which will focus specifically on men’s fashion.
Once again, guys like to look nice too. Slowly, it has become more acceptable for men to express their personalities through clothing. It is okay for men to experiment with colors or combine different styles, and they are encouraged to dress classy and chic without having their masculinity questioned. Male fashion icons, such as Jay Z, Kanye West, and Justin Timberlake, who used to wear baggy and unbalanced clothing, now prefer casual shoes and elegant suits to XXL hoodies and jeans. This shift in fashion really changes the whole perspective on male clothing.
Fall is the time to move away from bright colors, shorts and t-shirts. If you want to dress as your idol and impress, but you don’t know what to wear and want to avoid being asked – “Yo, why are you so dressed up? You got an interview or something,” try mixing different styles. For example, nice slim khaki pants from Joe Fresh or American Eagle can look perfectly fine with Converse sneakers or even Jordans (now that’s what I’m talking about. Guys, you can rock your J’s and still look classy). You can sport this look with a basic t-shirt or even with a black vest. A pair of black jeans from H&M will look perfectly fine with a buttoned-down white shirt from Café Cotton. But remember, casual buttoned-down shirts worn without being tucked in should not be too long. If you really want to look like a million bucks, and trendy, here is the perfect autumn look: casual shoes with no socks, rolled up dark pants and a bright V-neck cashmere sweater, worn either without a shirt, or with a sleeveless shirt that can go unnoticed. A large dark-color watch would contribute as the perfect accessory. You will look like a rich guy from Harvard, who plays golf!  Your outfit will look elegant, perfect for chilly weather, and let’s be honest, sexy. It may sound expensive, but in fact, the beginning of the school year is the perfect time for shopping because of all the crazy sales. Good leather shoes can be bought at Keneth Cole, Reaction or Zara. A cashmere sweater at J.Crew or Joe Fresh and accessories, such as a watch, even at Aldo. Currently, Zara is having sales of up to 80%, and all of its clothing looks like a boutique’s or couture, and the same goes for J. Crew.
Fall, despite it’s nature, is the symbol of a new school year and a new look, so why not use this opportunity to improve your wardrobe and spice up your style a little bit. Don’t be afraid to try new different styles – in the end, where else but in high school will you get a chance to try everything from ghetto chic to military and get away with it?Men's fashion 1
