Men’s Knit Tops Trends For Fall 2013

A Wide Variety Of Men’s Knit Tops Trends For 2013

Men’s knit tops come in a variety of styles. Polo, Henley, v-neck and crew-neck tops in both long and short sleeve make up the majority of styles. Today more than ever, men have more style options to choose from in an assortment of fabrics and colors.

This year color-blocked styles seem to be especially on-trend. Designers have experimented with different color combinations and engineered piecing to come up with some fun and creative styling. The tonal combinations work best for men especially the neutral mixes with a shot of color.

The military trend still is important in menswear. Military detailing such as epaulets and patch pockets are a masculine way to add interest and functionality to a style. This combined with the neutral color palette and the addition of camouflage prints makes this trend a winner for men of all ages.

Along with military looks, utilitarian or workwear looks are also popular. This is a great way for men to merchandise denim and plaid fabrications and layer key items like a plaid flannel shirt or a vintage distressed jean or jacket as part of their look. Designers are also incorporating many woven shirt details into knit tops with great effect.

There are also more printed styles available for men this season. The strong all-over print cycle that we are currently in has given men more options to spice up their wardrobe this year. Some of my favorites styles include key items such as pocket tees that incorporate print and fabric mixing.
