This Spring 2013 Trends discussion has been brought to you by Harrods.
I have a secret to share. I tend to wear the same clothes over and over again. But, like everyone else, I tend to get tired of these clothes, and want to give them a new life. How do I give them a fresh new look? With accessories! They’re quick to find, can add a great pop of color, and can be found in every price range out there. Here are some of the Spring 2013 trends.
Sometimes, men can be so difficult to shop for. What do you get them? I mean, sometimes I’d like to get something that’s not a video game or game system credits. Here are a few great gift ideas of things that make great gifts for the fellas in your life.

I love online shopping. I can do it in my pajamas, or while I’m laying in bed, or kicked back on the couch or the deck. One of the reasons that I love shopping on the internet is the wide variety of places and items that are available to me. Sites like Apricot Collection.
While I live in a fairly large town, it seems that there’s not a whole lot of selection or choices here. Who wants to look just like everyone else? Not me, that’s for sure. Apricot Collection selects the best fashion pieces from a myriad of lines, and offers them up on their site.
One of the fashion looks or styles that I’ve always liked is the Southwest style. It seems to be making a bit of a comeback as well. We all know that everything in fashion is cyclical. There are a few key elements that really pull a Southwestern look together.
Handmade jewelry is huge in the Southwestern trend. A big part of this is that the Native peoples of the Southwest were master craftsmen. Sterling silver pieces inlaid with brightly colored gemstones like turquoise, lapis, jasper, and malachite are very common. Jewelry pieces like copper bracelets are quite popular as well. And we can’t forget the beaded jewelry pieces – both woven and strung.
I am a huge fan of t shirts and jeans. I think it’s an easy look that anyone can pull off, no matter your size, shape, or gender. Just because you’re wearing a t-shirt doesn’t mean that it has to be a boring nothing look. There are all kinds of shirts out there with fabulous artwork and unique cuts.
Midnight Swimming takes both of these features and melds them together. What do I mean, and what makes them different from other boutique t-shirt manufacturers?
We all have that man in our life. The dude that shows up to whatever event wearing a t-shirt and cargo shorts. He thinks he’s looking good, and everyone else has a slight cringe. He has potential! These fashion tips for men just may help him find his own style.
T Shirts are okay to wear. There are tons of great designer shirts out there that look amazing. Some are screen printed with original artwork, while others just have a great cut or a fantastic fit. But please – let’s leave the double entendre shirts alone. There’s a time and a place for those, but it’s not when you’re out and about.
Men’s Fashion has come a long way in the past 7-10 years. It used to be that they had basically two choices – a suit and tie or jeans and a t-shirt. I mean, sure…there were the times that they wore a button down and a pair of slacks, but not usually as an everyday look.
And the options for mens shoes were limiting, to say the least! You had athletic shoes, which were fairly plain and, well, athletic looking. You had some version of dress shoes, generally a wing-tip or something similar. And then there was the in-between casual shoe – a loafer or a deck shoe. Yeah. Not always such a good look. So, basically, the fellas had three options – look like a schlub in a t-shirt and jeans, be all preppied out in a polo and slacks or jeans with deck shoes, or wear a suit and tie.
Oh, hello there. Fancy to see you in a place like this. Would you like to take a chance at winning a super-awesome COACH tote bag? Um, of course you do! DUH!!!

When I was a kid, I watched a lot of TV. I mean, a LOT of television. Basically, that was all I did besides go swimming. My favorite TV shows were the daytime game shows like Press Your Luck and Let’s Make a Deal. One of the brands that I remember being featured regularly was Speidel Watches.
In fact, my grandmother had a Speidel watch, and I thought that was one of the most amazing things. I even asked her if she’d been on TV, as she couldn’t have possibly, y’know, purchased the watch herself.
Did you know that tons of famous men wear hairpieces? Some wear toupees while others wear full on mens wigs. Some are very subtle, and others are pretty obvious.
Who are these folically challenged fellas, you ask? Well, there’s a ton of them, but here are a few fun bald celebrities.
William Shatner has worn a hairpiece for many, many years. In Star Trek II, you can even see his hair piece move! The horror! Look carefully, and you can see the edges of his hairpiece in the above photo. He has since had hair plugs, erm, I mean hair replacement surgery.
