Gone are the days when fashion trends were simply meant for women. Guys have now become equally conscious about what they wear and how they accessorize themselves. Men are now equally interested in fashion weeks held at the four major destinations Milan, Paris, London and New York.
Whether you are a style guru or an average guy, fashion trends for spring 2011 will not disappoint you.
Globe Totter: The hottest trend of spring 2011 reflects the Captain Cook look. Do you remember the captain sailing on Pacific Ocean? The fashion idea for 2011 is similar – West meets East. The fashion week held in New York played with the idea – clothing as storytelling. Clothing that gives a feel of adventure are going to be a big hit this year.
Duckie Brown: The Duckie Brown collection displayed by Daniel Silver at New York 2011 Spring Fashion Week clearly conveyed the message that the effort was to make every single piece unique. This collection perfectly reflected the West meets East look. If you are in search of a similar style, opt for garments that exhibit an eccentric mix of patterns and colors.
Gilded Age: The clipper ships and the Pan American World Airways uniforms are the inspiration for this style. You can find shirts designed with fabrics that look aged by the sun. Drawstrings at your waist, epaulettes and multi-pocket jackets are going to bring the vintage look.
Billy Reid: The Billy Reid collection was another major success at New York Fashion week spring 2011. The designer was inspired by his birthplace Louisiana and his creations captured the essence of the Louisiana style. His collections displayed madras jackets with hand made patchwork, heirloom buckled belts, the kind of dresses that would evoke a sense of tradition. Wearing a Billy Reid garment can give you the vintage look you are crazy about.
If you want to keep pace with the spring fashion trend 2011 look for some of these things including epaulettes, leather travel bag, vintage prints, sun aged fabrics, lived-in leather jackets, jackets with multiple pockets, handcrafted detailing, awning stripes and many more.
Worth every penny spent, the timeless leather jacket continues to be one of the most versatile pieces in your closet….whether kicking casual wear up a notch or adding a little edge to your look. Pair it with jeans like Brad Pitt; over a white tee like Justin Timberlake or keep it simple with solid colors like Kanye West or the always stylish David Beckham. With tons of styles and fits, check out the selections below from www.AllSaints.com and put your own spin on the classic leather jacket!

Gotta love David Beckham’s casual look : laid back, clean cut and best of all affordable and easy to emulate. Not really into the whole sweater tied around the waist look. It certainly doesn’t look bad on him, but if it’s not your style you can always just simply wear it (if the weather calls for it of course). Get Beckham’s look for less!
