Trendspotting Tuesday: Fab or Fail? Studded Hats for Men

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?

Menswear Monday: Camouflage

Hey, hey, hey, its menswear Monday!

And for my men today I’d like to put the spotlight on camouflage.

Camouflage is really hot in the streets right now and with good reason. It looks great! I, personally am more of a fan of army style camouflage but there are lots of different camo styles out right now. You just have to try em out and see which is best for you!

You can find camo in shorts, belts, hats, shirts, bandanas, etc. for the summertime. No matter how you choose to incorporate it, camouflage is definitely something for the fashion-savvy man to embrace.

Menswear Monday: River Island Swimwear Spotlight

River Island has some lovely swim gear for men this summer. River Island is a cool clothing company (one that was brought to my attention through their recent work with Rihanna), but they feature lots of cool stuff for men and women. Their swimwear doesn’t come up short, either.

Check out a couple of their cool printed items from their most recent men’s swim collections.

With stylish prints and modern cuts, River Island swimwear is definitely worthy poolside gear for the stylish male.

Menswear Mondays: Give it to me A$AP

It’s Menswear Monday BIIITTTCCCHHHESSSSS 

*snaps and applause*

lets do it up one time for the men, ya’ll only get one day a week so i’ll do my best to make it SPICY

So a few weeks ago I heard the song Wild for the Night by A$AP Rocky ft Skrillex from his debut album (not mixtape, album) Long.Live.A$AP. Like I’d heard it before in passing but never the whole thing ( you know how that goes)…and that song is PLAYA-5000. I love it! And it has been decided by myself and the bestie to make that one of the cardinal songs of our summer.

Great F’in Song.

But there’s another reason to take note of Wild for the Night and that is the video. A$AP Rocky wore some killer garb for his wild night in the Dominican Republic.

The matching patterned shirt-jacket combo was a smart & cool fashion choice, couple with white shorts to keep the pattern toned down jussssst enough. The fit of the shorts with a little cuff, was a nice style move as well. The gold rimmed circle glasses add another interesting element to the look and the backwards cap and gold chain make it just gangsta enough to be fit for the purple swag king.

A$AP’s music is great, but his style may be something to keep an eye on as well.

stay tuned men, & every Monday I’ll make ya remember why ya’ll never unfollow this girlie blog!
