Top 5 Men’s Fashion Trends of 2017

Top 5 Men’s Fashion Trends of 2017

Innovation and minimalism dictated the trends of 2016, so what lies in store for the new year? Men’s fashion is ever-changing, but based on recent collections we can make some accurate predictions as to what the new styles will be in 2017 menswear.

From tailored suits to a resurgence in 90s-inspired streetwear, the year is looking to be variable and exciting, with new trends filtering down from the catwalk into everyday wardrobes. The variation and simplicity of these trends mean that everyone can try them out, whether they do so by visiting a local second hand store or buying the latest designer pieces.

Suits

Best Men's Suits of 2017

    Suits are a classic staple of every man’s wardrobe, and so they should be. With increased versatility in terms of the style and tailoring of suits, 2017 will revolutionize the classic piece. Don’t restrict yourself by breaking your wardrobe into formal and casual; instead, try a mix of suit pieces with jeans and other more relaxed items of clothing. Even semi-formal attire can be a step up from just jeans and a t-shirt. The best looks for the new year are the ones which create entirely new crossovers of clothing.

    The versatile nature of suits means that you can wear them to work and then out to dinner with a simple change of tie or loosening of the collar. For a piece that is never out of style, a new suit will keep your look sharp and formal. Trying out new cuts and tailoring is a great way to keep your business clothing up-to-date.

    Boots

    Best Men's Boots of 2017

      Practical and versatile, a good pair of boots is a must. For those living in cold climates, they are the perfect piece of footwear to wear through Spring and Autumn as well as in Winter. The advantage of boots over other footwear is that they can be worn to every occasion. In brown or black leather with laces, they are durable, tasteful and will lead you through even the most fickle of trends.

      If you like to be a bit more cutting-edge with your choice of boots, try lower cut styles such as the ankle boot or a pair of boots with geometric cutouts, both of which are in fashion this year. Pair with an overcoat and scarf for a fashionable look in cooler seasons. Boots can be worn on the street and in restaurants or to formal events, so they’re a practical choice for those who want to add some easy style to their outfit.

      Streetwear

      Best Men's Streetwear of 2017

        Streetwear is taking a step towards innovation in 2017, with practical yet stylish pieces including tracksuits and raincoats. Sports brands will dictate the streetwear trends, and the movement towards sporty style can also be seen in the popularity of sneakers. High-quality streetwear will become popular because of its practicality and comfort. Monochrome colorways will rise to popularity on the street and in more formal situations.

        The latest trends in streetwear aren’t impractical, low-rider jeans but comfortable, non-denim pants paired with casual jerseys. Whether you’re going to watch a sports game or running errands around town, you can look good in styles that were made for men who like to spend their time out and about in the city.

        Short Textured Hairstyles

        Best Men's Hairstyles of 2017

          According to Men’s Hairstyles Now, rather than the long voluminous hairstyles of the past, the last few years have been all about making short hairstyles interesting. By leaving 1-2 inches of length on the top of the head, men can add texture to their hair on top to style quiffs, pompadours, fringes, and other stylish yet professional cuts.

          With such short hair, styling and texture will become more important so grab some good quality product to prepare. The more texture you can add to your style, the better. Short, textured styles are an excellent choice for men who want a hairstyle that looks good but won’t get in the way or consume too much time. Just remember to keep your face shape in mind when choosing a haircut.

          Sneakers

          Best Men's Sneakers of 2017

            Comfortable, light and stylish – you can’t go wrong with sneakers this year. From retro leather trainers to sporty, light sneakers, sports footwear is a style that is here to stay. Pairing with trousers adds a relaxed, active look to your outfit, while they also make a great summer look when paired with shorts and a t-shirt.

            Relaxation is a leading fashion trend for 2017, and sneakers embody the movement towards comfortable men’s clothing. While some won’t be convinced by sneakers as every-day footwear, trying them out for casual occasions such as lunch dates will be a great way to get used to the trend. As the most popular form of footwear for the past few years, this is one trend that is here to stay.

            Keep It Fresh

            Taking pieces from each of these trends and combining them will create an original but 2017-inspired look. Anything is possible this year, and choosing from these trends will keep you up to date with the latest trends as well as expanding your wardrobe. If there was ever a year to experiment with your personal style, it’s this one.

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

            Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

            Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

            So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

            Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

            Video Summary

            1. It is easier.

            When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

            2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

            Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

            3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

            Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

            4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

              If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

              5. It could lead to better sleep.

              Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

              6. It can help your skin.

              For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

              7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

              Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

              8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

              Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

              9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

              For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

              10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

                Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

                Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

                Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

                Sleep well with your naked body!

                With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

                Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
