New York Fashion Week: Men’s Roundup

TrueFacet Holiday Shops Sale

It seems that men are more fashion-conscious than ever, and those serious styling efforts have finally gotten noticed. This year marks the first ever New York Fashion Week: Men’s. From July 13-16, over 50 designers showed off their Spring/Summer 2016 collections, including Public School, Opening Ceremony and Phillip Lim. Accessories on the runway didn’t disappoint, and neither did the street style. Check out our favorites from the events.

1. Necklaces

We’ve stressed it before: men’s accessories are evolving. The days of a watch-only accessory collection are over. This was proven once again at the runway shows of Phillip Lim and Robert Geller. The two designers made sure to include necklaces far more interesting that a simple chain. Guys, you can add an element of surprise and style to your wardrobe with a pendant necklace this season. The men with the best street style at the event were also spotted wearing necklaces of different sizes, patterns and colors. It seems most designs are fair game.

2. Silver Rings

A silver statement ring is one of the simplest and unobtrusive ways a man can add a bit of flair to his wardrobe. Whether it’s just a single ring, like the one found on the Rag and Bone runway, or it’s a series of stacked rings, like those at the Public School show, there’s a style for the style adventurous at any level. This look is also one of the easiest to style since the silver will match just about anything you are wearing.

3. The Tie Clip

Menswear was the star of fashion week as the best looks from most designers were formal attire. On and off the runway, the put-together style aficionados rarely wore a suit jacket without a tie clip. This small accessory has the classic feel while remaining functional. Complete a structured and formal suit with a tie clip and you will add an edge of style and elegance. We saw it best at the Thom Browne show, but the street style looks didn’t disappoint.

4. Bracelets

Like necklaces, bracelets are now a men’s fashion norm. We saw it everywhere on the streets outside of fashion week. The styles ranged from leather wraps to metal stacks. Beaded and braided rows also complimented a timepiece. We saw bracelets on the wrists of men in shorts and men in suits. Nothing was off limits when it came to this style. Similar to rings, a bracelet is a relatively simple addition to an accessory collections. You can start small by adding a thin bracelet to compliment your wristwatch.

5. Watches with Metal Bracelest

Out of style are the leather-banded watches. The color scheme was modern and monochromatic at NYFW:M. The color palette didn’t venture too far away from grays, whites, blacks and blues. The neutral and modern color scheme allowed for sleek accessories in black and silver. For watches, like on the Robert Geller runway, this translated to heavy-link metal bracelets. Styles similar to the Rolex Submariner were most common in black and silver. When choosing your watch, opt for one in this style instead of a more vintage-looking leather bracelet.
