Men, it’s time to re-vamp your wardrobe with the hottest trends for Spring/Summer 2013. Ready for a stylist makeover? DESIblitz has listed the top trends to suit you.

With so many styles and trends you’re not going to be short of clothes this season.

With the focus always on fashion conscious women, it’s about time men started pulling their wardrobes together!

Fashion trends are always on the go and men need to keep up if they are attempting to look just as good as the females.

If it’s time for you to purchase a new look or experiment then DESIblitz are here with the know-how.

It’s all about the prints and bold statements this summer; an attire that’s a little bit off the edge. With looks that are easy to achieve all you need is the confidence to pull them off.

Although it all might seem a little eccentric at first glance, stripe suits, camouflage prints and neon jackets are all on the summer agenda this year. Don’t be worried, these trends can be tamed with complementary pieces.

Colourful Suits

Colourful suitsDark blues, blacks and browns are the safe options for any occasion, but what about the man that wants more?

Playing it safe may be the way to impress, but with an array of colours introduced by designers there’s more to add to your colour palette.

Save those drab colours for the winter and experiment this summer with bright hues and shades that were once almost impossible to wear.

Yellows, turquoises and even lilacs are the new shades for suits this summer. Paul Smith and Roberto Cavalli have displayed these vibrant looks on the catwalk.

But, if you’re looking to spend a little less, then the highstreet stores have the same looks for a lower price.

Topshop and River Island have stocked up on a range of suits that can be mixed and matched with trousers or shorts for the ultimate summer look.


neonIt might be surprising at first, but neon parades the summer this year. And it’s not just about the clothes, accessories are equally trendy in neon.

Back to the future has finally arrived on the fashion scene and this is the time to embrace it with open arms.

A neon outfit is great if you’re the daring type. If you’re a bit cautious then try a neon t-shirt with a pair of casual jeans for a balanced summer look.

Don’t feel that you’re limited with neon garments. It is possible to achieve a sophisticated look by adding a splash of neon to formalwear.

For inspiration look to Salvatore Ferragamo.

A vibrant orange bow tie goes a long way when teamed with a white shirt. Neon is definitely the trend to experiment with this summer.


Striped t-shirtLong or short, thick or thin, little or a lot, stripes should occupy a big space in your wardrobe this summer. With such a versatile look, stripes can be placed on or against anything.

Stripes flatter any body shape, even those gym fanatics. Long vertical lines on suits create the illusion of a taller stature. So if it’s the lean look you’re after then look no further than the collection by Michael Kors.

Black and white stripes are effective and subvert the typical formal look into a playful summer look.

If you’re the gym fanatic with a toned bod then subtle stripes should flatter your body shape. Striped vests or polo shirts offer enough detail that are appealing to the eye but not enough to take the attention away from your best assets: those guns!

There’s no overdoing it with stripes this summer and no better time to start experimenting than now.


CamouflageWith hopes for a sweltering summer what better way to stay cool than to camp in camouflage!

The military look is firmly in place for summer 2013 and have been adopted by all the top designers in their catwalk collections, including Valentino.

Greens, greys and browns are fused together by Jimmy Choo and Michael Bastian. Team camouflage trousers with plain t-shirts for contrast. Black, grey and military green suit perfectly.

Camouflage monk shoes by Jimmy Choo look great with casual clothes.

Don’t worry, raincoats come in camouflage prints too for those unpredictable summer days. You can dress down any outfit with a camouflage jacket for a more casual, relaxed look. So don’t hide in camouflage, be a trendsetter this summer.


orangeOrange is the new pink. Oranges offer room for experimenting and trendsetting. From orange t-shirts to orange chinos, let your wardrobe radiate this summer.

The J.Crew summer collection displays how you can implement orange in the workplace. Team orange shirts with black or grey suits for a complementary look.

Similarly, orange shirts look great with a pair of blue jeans and flip-flops for a casual, low maintenance appeal.

It’s not about quantity but quality; accessories like orange belts or high tops create a stylish summer look. Like N.Hoolywood, team bright orange trainers with chinos for a fresh appearance.

Summer 2013 is fast approaching and there’s no better time than now to experiment. With so many styles and trends you’re not going to be short of clothes this season.

Maximise your wardrobe by investing in some of the hottest looks straight off the catwalk. Make sure you walk into this season with style.
