It’s no top secret that color and pattern are leaving to dominate men fashion this coming fashion season the spring/summer 2012 catwalk shoes, fashion designer collections and present high street fashion supplies all confirm that. However, a lot of men are very wary when it comes to pattern or color and are loathe to fully embracing the tones, shades and attractive markings available to them.
Although men in modern society are more willing to show an attention in fashion and explore the more experimental nature of it, the big majority still prefer to attach to their traditional navy, blacks and grays. For those men who aren’t quite set to bust out neon shorts and Hawaiian shirts this SS12, the option of colored or patterned men shoes offers a fantastic way of showing support for the tendency in a much more subtle way.

The cooler weather not only dictates the way we think about dressing, it also affects our overall mood down to what we like to eat. Cozying-up becomes second nature during the winter months, from comfort foods to dressing oneself toasty-warm, which more often than not includes some kind of rich woolens and furs.
For all the fashion history buffs out there, looking at period costumes is not only fun and educational, it sheds a light on the clever practicality of the sartorial past too. Yes, central heating is a rather new development in the history of humanity; folks of yesteryear knew how to keep themselves warm and stylish, just as they do today, with a little help from the international fur trade.
For the privileged aristocratic and bourgeois set of 16th century southern Germany, while there was some practicality to fashion, it was also about presenting oneself in the ultra-luxe and distinctive looks of the day. Fashion history is accustomed to looking to Western European examples as its style barometer, which is very French-centric. But asides the Courts of France, England or Italy, the southern German State of Saxony shined as brightly as any other courts and warranted some traffic-stopping looks.
Some of the most distinct examples were undeniably chronicled by Lucas Cranach the Elder (4 October 1472 – 16 October 1553), court painter to Duke Friedrich III, “Frederick the Wise”, Elector of Saxony (17 January 1463 – 5 May 1525) and his successors. For fashion designers seeking inspiration for their cold-weather looks the Saxon Style is pure magic! It has enough details, fashion twists and decadence to fuel creativity for many designer collections.
For designers looking to incorporate more fur into their designs, it is a true treasure-trove of beautiful and clever details, layered in textures and colors, and accented with some seriously jewelry.

If one thing is clear within the big fashion picture, since the early 2000s accessories are fast becoming the bread-winner for fashion collections, the way “beauty” used to be. Don’t believe us?
Needless to say, not only are accessories becoming the strongest moneymaker in the industry; accessories have recently surpassed beauty (i.e. perfume, cosmetic, skincare) in revenue, something that 20, or even 10 years ago, would have sounded like Wall Street heresy. Hey, you’re witnessing business history!
Why are accessories becoming so important? Well, to be fair, they have always been around. But now, with a much more democratic sartorial attitude and way of dressing, folks opt for different key-status projections. Once upon a time, it was overwhelmingly “the car” that served as status, but that’s old news now. With Generation Y not being too keen on driving, the car-factor got the boot! But we digress. The reality is that accessories allow the individual to make a statement about their fashion sense, their lifestyle, their affluence or their status with considerably less investment or commitment.
Today’s new style belts are pretty fashionable than functional. Stylish belts are highly in fashion this year, giving plus size women a great option to show off one of their greatest possessions, their wonderful waist. Fashion Belts can boost every outfit, lending you a trendy, feminine appear. There are dozens of several belt styles you can choose from; however usual designs may not be as comfortable for you as elastic belts. These superb, tricky accent pieces can be worn beneath your bust area, matched with fashionable tunics, white shirts, loose dresses, sweaters or any other fashion item you would like to wear to emphasize your gorgeous waist.
