Men’s Scarf… Look Great, Feel Fantastic!
The international runways shows have ended, and it looks like it is going to be a good year for men’s fashion. The trends for men seem to be leaning back to a more conservative tailored look, but the splashes of color and metallics are far from stuffy. Here is a wrap up of the must have looks for men in Spring 2009.
Conservative is Hot
Many people are being very tight with their luxury spending due to the current economic conditions. The resurgence of classic conservative styles for men means that you will be able to look trendy in spring 2009, but know that you can still wear that look and look great in seasons to come.

Tuxedo pieces aren’t just for black tie events anymore. 2009 is seeing pieces from formal wear paired with not-so-formal pieces for a great look to wear out of the town. Forget about the formal dress shirt, cummerbund, and bow tie. Instead look for jackets with satin lapels or the satin shawl paired with a button up that is much more casual. Satin stripes in the pants are also a great way to incorporate elements of the penguin suit into your trendy dinner suit.
The trendy color for spring 2009 is most definitely blue. Bright blue. Exciting blue. This look can be a little tricky to pull off with taste if you aren’t careful. Too much of it and you will look like a smurf. Instead spice up a more conservative outfit with splashes of blue. Pair a dark suit with a blue scarf or blue … Read More
