Men’s Spring Fashion Trends

Belisi Look of the Week

That 70s Guy

While leisure suits are thankfully still only appropriate for 70s theme parties and Halloween, suits and fashions are decidedly more 70s inspired for Spring ‘08, especially for younger suit wearers. One notable difference is that you won’t see bell bottoms with these slimming suits. For an urban, edgy look that says you’re hip and fashionable, try these styles on for size:

Eire-ttitude: Look of the Week

First things first. Eire is short for Eireann, which means Ireland (as in 'Éirinn go breá).

If you’re not used to saying words like trousers, tweed or herringbone, you’d better brush up on your early 20th century vocabulary. There are many looks popular this fall and winter but one of the most distinct is the early 20th century style inspired by our fair Irish friends. We’re not suggesting that you suit up in knickers but you might consider picking up a few plaid, tweed, wool and herringbone pieces to add to your wardrobe.

From Belisi: How to dress like a celebrity

From Sean Combs to style guru Jay Manuel, stars are hitting the red carpet with a surprising accessory—the pocket square. Once very popular among Hollywood’s elite, the pocket square disappeared for the most part. The good news is that this elegant trend has returned. Another way male stars stand out at award shows and other public events is with a sharp looking suit and a luxury silk scarf. At Belisi, we understand that a quality tie is the denouement of a well-put together star look.

Fall Springs Ahead: Men’s fashion heads in a new direction - Belisi's guide to the fall

007, ethnic print, futuristic military, bold colors, retro, geometric shapes, metallics. Previews of men’s fall fashion covered the gamut, from sleek and polished to reworked traditional and preppy to vampy and 70-80s inspired. While the direction seems scattered, one trend is consistent: men’s fashion is taking a decidedly retroactive/futuristic and more feminine direction, with sleeker, narrow lines, geometric patterns and bold colors and prints.
