Letâ€™s be honest, most of the Urban Daddies out there are taking fashion advice from the Urban Mommies â€“ am I right? If she is steering the direction of your wardrobe, take back your style. Here are 8 trends to try right now.
1. Statement Scarves â€“ These are not just for the ladies anymore. Pick a pattern like a tartan, or a solid colour and throw it on â€œlike you just donâ€™t careâ€, avoid the neatly knotted look. My favourites this season are the cable knit scarves from GAP.
2. Â Camo â€“ It was all over the runways, and now itâ€™s hit the sidewalk. If your guy is conservative go with a traditional camouflage print, if heâ€™s adventurous try a bright green camo.
3. Â Burgundy â€“ Finally a new colour for guys! Burgundy is a great androgynous colour like navy and looks great on guys. Try a hoodie, outerwear, or scarf and gloves in this â€œnew for guysâ€ shade. Check out Ambercrombie & Fitch online for some great hoodies.
4.Â Leather â€“ Itâ€™s everywhere, seriously, you canâ€™t miss it!
5.Â Cuffed Pants â€“ For the fashion novice; cuff your jeans once and pair them with brown boots (and maybe a white tee and burgundy hoodie as seen above?) If you want to take it up a notch, cuff your jeans and pair with burgundy velvet loafers, very classy.
6.Â Denim on Denim â€“ This is a look that can go seriously wrong, or make your guy look super cool. I suggest perusing the GAP mens section to make sure you get this right. Two things to keep in mind; mix the tones of your denim, and break them up with a solid tee.
7.Â Backpacks â€“ This is a trend that got some flak from the fashion police, but I love it. A camo backpack filled with kidâ€™s necessities make an Urban Daddy hot stuff in my books! Travelling? Or maybe going for a more refined look? Black leather is the way to go.
8. Plaid â€“ This seasonâ€™s plaid is not flannel, and itâ€™s not for lumberjacks (well sexy lumberjacks maybe ;) For a modern update to the classic check out Tommy Hillfiger, I love their plaid shirt collection, an added bonus, they have a great boys section.
