Today, fashion bloggers are setting trends along with designers. Their accounts are a source of inspiration, extraordinary outfits as well as catchy styling tricks. The Vremena Goda Galleries team reviews the feed of fashion influencers to make a fashion guide on Summer 2011 trends for men: from summer knitwear to hats.
Fun summer knitwear
Summer is the optimal time to pick either jumper or cardigan as the basis of your look instead of hiding them under layers of clothes as we tend to practice in cold seasons. This season, Instagram influencers come up with vibrant prints, from stripes to psychedelic ones. You can combine them with loose jeans or Bermuda shorts.
Bermuda shorts used to be a uniform of the British military, but over time, comfortable shorts are here to stay in the wardrobes of men and women throughout the world. Elongated shorts, both in classic and sporty styles, this season are being at their peak of popularity among bloggers. Bermuda shorts go well with any outfit, from a shirt and jacket to a hoodie and a T-shirt.
Jeans with print
This season, influencers call our attention to creative designs with the brand's monogram pattern, vibrant abstract prints or flowers. Such jeans can become a focal point of the look: complement them with a basic T-shirt or denim jacket. Total-denim looks are also being at the peak of popularity now.
Summer is the time to put on hold gray and black outfits, they are sure to come in handy but next season. Bloggers opt for bright or pastel models. They are perfect for both a special event and a casual look. Plus that, the pantsuits can be worn separately, for example, by combining a colored jacket with neutral pants or jeans.
Clothing made in patchwork style is continuing the trend of the 70s. In addition to jeans or denim jackets made from fabrics of different colors and textures, this season take a closer look at knitted patchwork models. Outfits in this technique tend to be sewn from scraps of old textiles, so it is not only stylish but environmentally friendly as well.
Color blocking, a stylistic technique of mixing several colors in one look, is not losing its popularity as it enables us to create a variety of fashion combinations. You can match and mix both bright and subtle colors. To enhance the effect, make sure the accessories match the color of your items of clothing.
Headwear serves to polish up the look, and sometimes it can turn into a focal point. Bucket hats in hip-hop style or "fisherman's" with a wide brim are being trendy now. The best summer choice is a bucket hat made of natural cotton. The most daring (as well as stylish!) fashion influencers tend to wear bucket hats paired with classic suits.
