Six Must-Have Spring 2007 Men’s Fashion Trends

Spring is the perfect time to stray away from the heavy fabrications and monochromatic tones of Winter and Fall and turn to breezy, lightweight and colorful fashions. Presenting six items to add to your wardrobe this Spring.

 Slim Shorts
Slim, smart and short - but not too short.

 7" Essential Chino Shorts | $48 at J. Crew

Cardigan Confidence

Invoking the  gentleman style of the ’50s and ’60s, lightweight cardigans are perfect to make you look mature in a "cool daddy-o" way.

 Marc by Marc Jacobs green striped V-neck Cardigan | $118 at Bluefly

Lighter Combat

The military look isn’t totally out, so any  light-colored military or safari-type button up is perfect for those sunny days.

Twill Military-Style Shirt | $59.50 at Banana Republic

Colorful Cover Up

Turn in your thick hooded sweatshirt for a lightweight hoodie in a lively shade.

Flex Fleece Zip Hoody | $40 at American Apparel

Ghetto Gold

Silver has grown tired, so why not give it a break and bust out the yellow gold!

Prince on the 45 Mini Gold Vermeil Necklace | $112 at White Trash Charms

Solid White Kicks

Nothing says spring style like a pair of classic white sneakers. 

Converse Jack Purcell | $50 at Zappos

Omiru Poll Results: Charm Bracelets are (Barely) In

Omiru Poll Result: Charm Bracelets are (Barely) In

Forever 21 Charm BraceletWe asked: Are Charm Bracelets In or Out?

You said:  We’re divided.  While "In" got 46% of the vote, "Out" got almost as much support (37%). 

Omiru’s take: We appreciate that Charm Bracelets, much like Cufflinks for men, allow you to express a little bit more about yourself.  Tennis fan?  Show your sporting spirit with a mini tennis racquet.  Oenophile?  Reveal your love of wine with a tiny wine bottle charm.  That said, they’re seen in some circles as kitschy.  Our verdict: this is a jewelry trend that’s more fun than fundamental, so spend accordingly.

Next Question: Our Trendscape: Wide Trouser Jeans sparked a bit of a debate as to whether or not they’re In yet.  But what do You think?   Tell us, are Wide Trouser Jeans In, or are they Out?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!
