Boys in Crop tops…

So summer is approaching and usually this is a season where women ‘bare it all’ but now with our, ‘DIY Vintage fashion’ guys are starting to be more daring with their outfits and are starting to adopt fashion trends that girls usually follow!

We are seeing more colour in mens clothing, more embroidery and decorative fashion, some even opt to just wearing female clothing all together!

So it’s becoming more and more mainstream for guys to dress more adventurous, but something that is starting to make an appearance is crop tops!!

I myself have always wanted to walk around in a crop top day after day but have never felt confident enough to do so, but now that I’m starting to be more myself and I’m starting to care less and less about the opinions of others I’ve decided to try it out momentarily.

Men in crop tops isn’t a new thing as most of us will know, this is something that has been around since before the 90s and most of us will remember things like Will Smith in Fresh Prince wearing crop tops to play ball or around the house.

Men in crop tops is also something that we have seen in ‘High Fashion’ in shows such as the Calvin Klein Collection Spring/Summer 2011 Menswear Collection (above) and in an Astrid Anderson show (below), where the looks were more ‘extreme’

So unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to go to London Fashion Week Men’s like I planned but a lot of my friends did get to go.

Even though I didn’t get to see the amazing outfits in person I did get to see them hours later once the pictures were being uploaded onto social media, you could tell from the pictures that the men’s collection are a lot more laid back and calm, not like women where everyone is running around crazy, trying to get a picture.

The guys wore outfits that were well put together with small elements that popped, whereas women usually go above and beyond, wearing large pink furs, stripped bags and making sure that they stand out from the crowd.

The general “theme” for the men was casual sophistication, many dressed in casual suits and others embraced more of a street wear look.

Overall it looked classy af, and it sucks that I didn’t have the opportunity to see it all in person and experience the vibe for myself. Hopefully I can make it next time!

Looking forward to my first mens fashion week!

I’ve now been to about 2 fashion weeks and they have both been the September Women’s collections, I’ve never attended a fashion week outside of this season and I’ve never been to LFWM, I’ve been wanting to go to one for a while to see how it differs from the women’s!

I have a feeling it might be a bit more low key and “serious” but since this is my first time I’m not going to stress myself out with trying to find the perfect suit, ill just go as I am just to see how it is and to meet people!

It is also good for me to go because I am a male fashion blogger so it doesn’t make sense that I’ve never been to London Fashion Week Men’s

Hopefully over time people will start recognise me and I can start to wear my own pieces to these events!

Hope to see you there!!
