Today I am doing a sort of hybrid of Menswear Monday & Trendspotting Tuesday by bringing a growingly male-centered trend to the spotlight.
It seems 2013 is the year of the bling for men. More and more, male bling and accessories are becoming more common place in the “swaggy” male’s wardrobe. In full embrace of this trend, the studded hat is starting to rear its head in men’s fashion. Justin Bieber was spotted rocking one the other day.
The Biebs is not the only one. I have seen many men on my Instagram feed, rockin’ their studded hats, as well as a number of other male celebs. It seems as though this is the new way of jazzing up your snapback and taking urban style to another level.
I personally am not against the studded hat for men, though not particularly a fan. Some men are really able to pull them off nicely while others look a little loud and overzealous in their attempts at head-bling style. Again I don’t think they are the worst thing ever and some pull them off quite well, but I have seen some hat designs that take it too far and straight into the lane of gaudiness.
How do you guys feel about bling for men & the studded hat trend in particular? Is it totally FAB? Or a total FAIL?

Sooooo sneaker wedges….I’ve been seeing a good bit of these. Not enough to call it a trend just yet, but enough to take note. I’m not quite sure to feel about them just yet but they must be noted. I’ve seen a few cute pairs, usually they are the ones that come in a print or with spikes. Plus I’ve seen a couple of celebs (including Nicole Scherzinger) rockin’ em but I just haven’t quite latched on to the sneaker wedges movement yet. Something makes me think of a more burgoueis version of the “Jordan heel” posted on people’s walls by fake facebook pages. Maybe its because I’m not the biggest sneaker girl, idk, but like I said I can’t make heads or tails of this one yet.
What do you guys think? Fab or Fail?
Hola my lovely people out there! Hope your enjoying this blessed Monday that is before us.
Now I know skinny jeans are not a new trend, for men or women, but there is much commentary on men wearing skinny jeans and I have noticed that my male friends fall on both sides, arguments for and against them. So I thought I’d bring it to you guys.
For my men out there: How do you feel about wearing skinny jeans or other men who do (if you don’t)?
For my ladies: How do you feel about men who wear skinny jeans?
My personal view is that I don’t mind a man wearing skinny jeans as long as he does so in a way that is still manly. My biggest thing is that they aren’t too tight and that they fit your body type. For instance, some of my more stocky men out there may benefit more from straight leg jeans while my men of slimmer build look better in skinnies. And I would prefer skinny jeans or straight leg jeans ANY DAY over those baggy monstrosities that are 10 sizes too big and puckled up with a belt around the waist…or worse, sagging below your buttcheeks.
Just my opinion though…
…and I want you guys opinions.
Let me know how you feel about skinnies on men
Fab or Fail?
Until Next Time, XOXO JAZ’
