Microtrends are trends that come from the street and not the runway. We spotted men on bomber jackets and fell in love. See how to rock this trend IRL.

Where does the bomber jacket come from?

The bomber jacket originates from military clothing which trickled down into subcultures such as punk and has recently made its way into high fashion.

The jacket was used as Military garb in the 1950s and made it into fashion in 1963. In recent years, the bomber jacket has been in and off the runway and currently is not.

So what’s with the renewed love for a jacket that isn’t trending?

Why now?

Even though the bomber jacket isn’t on trend, it does have roots in the punk subculture and rebellion seems to be the hot button topic in today’s world. From the marchs in New York against immigration reform to the yellow jacket demonstrations in France, rebellion is everywhere. Of course, the bomber jacket’s origin of WWII deviance also has linked it to standing up for what is right when talking about human rights.

As always, fashion has its roots in current events.

How to rock the look

Dressing it down

Pair it with sweat pants and layer a hoodie under it for extra warmth if you live in a cold weather climate. Add a fleece under the hoodie if temperatures fall below 18ยฐF.

Dressing it up

Pair with wide leg pants and layer with full body fleece under garment. Pair with a sweater that accents the colors in the bomber jacket (match the trim color).

It’s been cold for a while now but we can no longer hold on to the hope that fall will happen with just 3 weeks to winter. We have curated 5 winter accessories that are so hot right now for our male readers.

The plaid scarf

Plaid has made a come back this season for both sexes but men still mostly have the traditional block and stripe combination.

Ditch the beanie

A bowler hat is so chic and was seen on multiple runways this season. There are styles available in black if you don’t feel adventurous.

Fanny Pack crossbody

A must in every cool guy’s closet! Try a super large one with logo for a super standout vibe. Place it low key in neutral colors.

Sports themed cardigans

A little on the nerdy side, this microtrend will have you turn heads this season in a good way.

Puff it up

Puffer jackets are finally cool for guys and a great way to keep warm!

Like pastel pink this summer, yellow has been seen on fall runways for men from the stripe on the fireman jacket to a full on sweater. Here’s how to rock the hue IRL.

It is always scary wearing a bright color since the whole idea is to get noticed which few of us actually like to do. Fashion has always contradicted us on this notion. So how does one wear yellow without looking like Big Bird or an attention seeker? We have 3 suggestions (take it or leave):

1. Light yellow highlights with trim that points to the hue or an accessory like socks or hats.

(sweater Asos 29.99, Shirt Macy’s 33.75)

2. Mildly adventurous? Try a sweater or the shirt that goes under the sweater (navy blue to pop the hue or a brown hue to mute it a little).

3. Ready for full on yellow? The first two looks in the opening image are the truly bold but the second is more realistic. Still not ready for a full yellow sweater, pick a striped one instead.

A microtrend is a trend that few designers embrace or is contained to a region. Today we are exploring how the men fire jacket became a microtrend that hit the runway.

The singular reflective stripe that helps firemen see each other in a 4 alarm blaze was seen on the runways of Calvin Klein, Junya Wannabe and Burberry.

Here is why:

  1. There has been a rise in fires including the one burning through California right now. There is a trend for fashion to address issues in our lifes such as how the #metoo moment increased feministic graphic tees. At least this time, it’s tasteful.
  2. Hero Worship: The fact that superheroes are now everywhere, it seems humanity has a love for selflessness. Firefighters are real life heros so why not pay homage to them.

Rocking this trend

1. Wear it with loose fitting pants. Baggy jeans will work but nothing skinny.

2. Try bright sneakers to make the jacket pop. If you can’t, just avoid black shoes or sneakers if wearing black pants.

3. Wear a hoodie like a top and be double warm. If you feel uneasy about wearing a hoodie alone, pair with an Henley.

Formerly wind breakers, windcheaters are having a moment in men’s fashion this fall but instead of reaching for a company that will only sell it one season, buy from a company that always sold it and get it for less.

By Yvette E

When it comes to fashion trends, couture fashion houses will always create a piece for one season and then never again. However there are brands that always created the look that is now a trend and they will offer it for less so instead of buying a windcheater from Gucci, here are three sportswear companies that already make them at a fraction of the cost.

We look at New Balance (on sale at bluefly.com) which has a bright color neon and this more causal gray starting at 80 dollars.

Adidas wind jackets are regularly $60 but are half off right now on their site.

Dresslily.com $36 windcheater

Finally, we went to dresslily.com and were suprised they had a men section and for 36 dollars this one is going fast!!

Women have been wearing track suits in velour since they were invented by Juicy Couture. This season, men are getting thier chance to rock the look.

By Yvette E

The tracksuit is most likely the answer to the comfort wear millenial women have embraced. It has just started its popularity in runway fair in 2017 after evolving over the last 6 years as matching jackets with streamlined pants back in 2011.

This season look for more matching styles, baggier silhouettes and monochromatic color palettes.

Are you rocking a tracksuit this fall? #tfgts to be featured on our Instagram page!

With far out trends like S+M, astronauts, rodeo and large shoulders, mens fashion has gotten just as crazy as the ladies, so here are 5 trends that you can rock without looking out of place IRL.

by Yvette E

The Cap

Baseball caps have been in style for sometime but the newest styles have wider brims and larger graphics in front. Brims can also be a different fabric from the main hat.

The Leather Coat

Channel your inner Neo with this lengthened leather jacket look. You can trust us it will look cool but not with jogger sets.

The 90’s sneakers

Oversized fugly sneakers are back from the 90’s abyss and we are in love. Pick out the bold colors that are out this fall.

All checker everything

The girls got all the plaids this season but the guys got checkers. Be daring in checker shirts or coat or more subtle in checker accessories.

Brown’s Hayday

The color brown is having a moment and you should be a part of it. From Caramel to tan and every brown in between this trend is the easiest to add to your everyday rotation. You probably already have it in your closet.

These three trends will take you through the entire fall season.

PLAID

Both women and men share this stylish print. The difference is we see it in jackets and not just bottoms. The hues are more lighter here with hints of bright colors like yellow and pastels like lavender.

90’s redux

We are not talking full on track suits but these three items can make you look fashionable without dating yourself (especially if you saw clueless when it came out).

1. Anorak – find one with patches for a updated look or neon hues.

2. Bucket hat – another trend that has cross genders, adding a simple one in a neutral hue is best.

3. Oversized sneakers

High top sneakers are back! Look for hues in basic neutrals with color highlights for that 90’s feel.

HIKING BOOTS

I am so obsessed with sorel right now and so should you. Their hiking boots are extremely stylish but more fund friendly brands include Steve Madden, and Vince Camuto.

As always if you try any of these styles #tfgmfw and you could be featured on our instagram.

Happy Monday ๐Ÿ’‹

This fall instead of reaching for jeans, try these pant trends instead.

Tailored Sweat pants

Adidas made these popular but other brands have come to love them. Look for patchwork and floral prints for a 2018 update.

Plaid Skinny pants

Bring out your inner rocker with these pants. Here they are paired with a leather jacket but it can also go with a jean jacket.

Leggings

Brands like Louis Vuitton have added leggings to their menswear line and we approve. Pair with shorts and a sweater for a more paired down look.

As always if you try any of these looks #tfgmff and you could be featured on our Instagram page.
