We are actually very used to seeing articles on new trends for women, and it is probably for a good reason as the majority of the people who follow fashion are girls (or guys whose girlfriends are huge fashionistas). However, the time is here for guys to pay more attention to what they are wearing, and it seems that we are slowly getting lost in male fashion trends as well. Today, we present you one of the most popular, most common, and (honestly) the most handsome fashion styles for men of today: urban chic. What does this mean for a guy and how to incorporate it in his daily attire?
Start with light-washed denim
One of the things that every single trend, or basically look consists of, is denim. Yes, denim is one of the most classic fashion trends of all time, and its inclusion in the urban chic trend doesn’t fall behind. However, in order to make denim more interesting, you can light-wash it just a little bit. If you have an old pair of jeans, this is something that you might be able to do by yourself. On the other hand, you can also buy light-washed jeans anywhere you go as it is a huge trend right now, as lighter shades of denim are equally fashionable and, most importantly, as versatile as the dark ones.
Do not forget the accessories
The urban chic design is all about being completely modern while giving the feeling that you didn’t plan to look so cool. This is why the use of different accessories is very much encouraged. You can wear rings, bracelets or even necklaces - all of these are good to go. Bear in mind, though, that the most popular accessory is the watch, so this is one thing that you should always include in your outfit. If you want to rock the urban chic style in the right way, make sure that you always opt for watches that have great quality and performance. To make it a bit more personal, you can always choose to buy high-quality custom engraved watches just to make your whole look a bit more interesting. Be as it may, a watch is a must-have accessory and you should have several for different events and occasions.
Another great thing in the urban chic style is the layering - this is what makes or breaks your final look. Layered outfits are always more interesting than plain ones, and this is what you should have in mind before you go out and buy something new. The most common pieces that you should own is a white tee that you will make more interesting by wearing a plaid or a denim shirt on top (unbuttoned, of course). In fall, this can be even more interesting as you get to add a leather jacket to the mix. In combination with your washed denim jeans and accessories – boy will you be getting some phone numbers.
The game of socks
Socks have actually been playing quite an important role in male fashion in the last couple of years. Not only was there the distinction between no-show socks and high socks, but there are plenty of colorful socks on the market that are making their way to the urban chic trend. Pairing your footwear and your jeans with funny socks is one of the top trends of the year. Not only is this acceptable on casual events, but it is also very popular on formal events as well.
So yes, these are the key things every fashionable guy should know. These are also the small lessons that you should have in mind if you want to start being fashionable! Not difficult, right?
