Men’s Fashion – Changing Trends

Fashion reflects the society as well as the individual. It is the art of carrying oneself socially. From the ancient times to this post-modern world it has been a spiral journey for this phenomenon called fashion. It means the external appearance of a person based on the clothes and accessories he is wearing but it reflects the psychological condition of the person. One cannot claim that one has an individual fashion. It has always been a thing of the mass, of the society. It means what is being acceptable, what is the trend of the contemporary society to which one belongs. However, it depends on a whole lot of things like climatic condition, comfort and the mood of the place.

Fashion is known to be gender variant. Both men and women have different fashion trends simultaneously depending how completely it reflects both the personas. Men’s fashion from the very beginning has depended heavily on the kind of work they do. But recent years have seen contrast to this notion. Now, it has become different depending how one wants to reflect himself. Denim is one fabric that is a part of almost every wardrobe around the world. It has predominantly been a male clothing and reflects rusticity and masculinity. It is only recently that women too have taken to the fabric like fish to water.

As winter is coming closer everyone is giving a thought about what to wear this season. With all the designer’s introducing their winter designs, one can easily see that palettes of bold colours will be setting the benchmark. But one shouldn’t go overboard with bright reds and pinks as they are going to stay away this season. Talking of shoes, pointed boots may be a thing of the past but they can still be seen in fashion streets around the world. Similarly the seventies skinny pants which were recently at a high again have already started going down. Light denim on the casual shoes goes well with the winter.

Men’s fashion is experiencing all the experiments. While some years back metro sexual look was the demand of the season, everyone has already started going retro in the current season. Casual look is now the demand of all the seasons. Less is more is the new fashion statement. Suave look and sweet smelling cologne are out of the closet. Its pleasant perfumes and strong looks with less accessories. Neck-chains and head bands have already been shown the back door but the gentle wristwatch is still smiling.

The fashion is more open than never before. All you need to do is figure out what looks best on you. So check your wardrobe, introspect and make a list of what to wear in the upcoming winter.

Wristwatches As a Beneficial Fashion Accessory

Watches are beautiful and beneficial. I like them because they not only serve a useful function, but they are a lovely fashion accessory. Sure, a watch tells you the time of day. That is its useful function, but really a watch can do so much more for you than just let you see what time it is.

Nowadays, with the advent of cell phones, people really don’t need to wear wristwatches. They can just look at their mobile phones for the time. Today a watch is much less about function that it is about fashion and about making the wearer feel happier.

The design and the color of the watch can make a watch a perfect accent to the wearer’s outfit. The watch can be either formal or casual, to fit the outfit. The color can either match the colors in the rest of the outfit or it can have a different, accenting color, which can really make the outfit pop.

People can look at your watch and see immediately that you have style and can discern an element of your personality. The variety of wristwatches is incredible. You can buy them in a variety of shapes, beginning with the common circle, oval, square, and rectangle but ranging to more daring shapes such as octagons and even free-form creations.They come in every artistic style you can imagine, from Rococo to Art Nouveau, Pop Art to Postmodern. Of course, the variety of colors you can add to the palette of your ensemble is practically limitless, as is the variety of designs. A watch is essentially a work of art – a painting, say – that you wear on your wrist.

Apart from the fashion element, you can wear a watch just to make you feel happy. For instance, some people really enjoy wearing watches with cartoon characters on them. While some may find this to be gauche or kitschy, I am decidedly not in this camp. While they may not go well in every ensemble and you may hesitate to wear them to your next Central Park East cocktail party, cartoon watches can be part of surprisingly many outfits.

Cartoon characters on watches have become increasingly popular over the last couple of decades. Even highly paid professionals enjoy wearing watches with their favorite cartoon characters on them. They give the wearer a little lift by reminding him or her of funny or memorable cartoons with that character, especially ones they saw when they were children. Here, too, a watch may help to show something of the wearer’s personality. I wear my cartoon watches utterly without any irony. Whereas some may find cartoon characters to be juvenile, I just find them to be fun.

Personally, I really like to wear Winnie the Pooh watches and Tigger watches. I am a big fan of the Winnie the Pooh movies and books. Tigger is my favorite character. Cartoon character watches are made for both adults and children. They are available from reliable vendors on the Internet at reasonable prices. Some cartoon watches even help kids learn how to tell time.

Whether it be for fashion’s sake or just to make you happy, seek out a new watch for yourself today. You’ll be glad you did.
