Fashion Forward: Men's Fall Fashion
Every week we bring you the latest looks for the ladies. But this week, we're talking to men or at least the women who dress them. In tonight's Fashion Forward, Shireen Sandoval shows us what's hot this fall for the fellas.
WSVN -- Ashton Kutcher had the look at this year's Teen Choice Awards.
Johnny Knoxville made a grand entrance at the premiere of "The Dukes of Hazzard."
Men, when it comes to looking good this season, there are no rules.
Alex Abril: "If you look good, you're going to feel good."
Okay guys, if you're not fashion savvy, then head to Project LX fashion lab in Miami.
This new boutique can turn even the most conservative guy into a hottie.
Abril: "By the time he leaves, he's ready to hit whether it's South Beach or the coolest restaurants, and he's ready to tackle and conquer the world."
But if you buy just one thing for fall, make it a pair of designer jeans.
Abril: "Denim jeans with heavily embroidered back pockets is a must have this season."
So are prints with stitching, vintage tees, and shirts with fraying or ragged edges.
But don't forget a hat -- these tattoo embroidered ones are the latest trend.
Now, we know boys will be boys... But if you want to be one of the best dressed, head to Base on South Beach.
Shireen Sandoval: "So we need some help today. Tell me, what is in for guys to make them look hip and fashionable?"
Steven Giles: "Well, I think that you are going to see a lot of this season, which I think is really fantastic, is just a continuation of the very pushed urban look. That very masculine almost boyish kind of look."
Start with plenty of layers.
The look is all over music videos.
Pair a striped sweater vest with a button down shirt.
Or go for a sportier look.
Hand painted or embroidered jeans are must-haves.
Sandoval: "This fall you are going to see very very unusual color combinations, for guys. A lot of mixtures of patterns as well as fabrics."
But Mama don't be mad... Sweaters with holes are deliberate -- and very in this season.
So are extra long sweaters, flat caps, and a good pair of sneakers.
Sandoval: "Here in South Florida what do you think the biggest fashion mistake guys make is?"
Giles: "I think there is a tremendous conservatism at work especially in guys."
Sandoval: "Really, I've seen some guys up on Collins walking around in thongs."
You can find clothes, furniture and even Steven's new c-d at Base.
