It’s not just black and grey for men. All colours have attended the men fashion parade. We know that navy blue has been one of the essential colours in men’s fashion world but this year we will see all the shades of blue. Petrol blue, metallic blue, navy blue, Curaçao blue, dodger blue, duke blue, turquoise etc… As a result the star of 2013 Men’s Fashion World is blue as we see on the runways. Salvatore Ferragamo, Guess, Burberry Prorsum, Boglioli, Hartford, and Hermes are just some brands/designers who featured eye-catching shades of blue. It doesn’t mean that everything you wear must be blue. Just some blue splash would be enough too. A single-breasted blazer, a shirt, a jumper, a bracelet and sometimes even just a watch…
It’s fresh, cool and stunning…
And if you have blue eyes; you are more than a lucky guy this year! :)
Here are some blue outfits that I found for you.
(PS: I personally do not like baby/powder blue on men. But still… It’s your choice)
If you want to give something unique and creative, Atop watches are one of the most perfect gifts for your Valentine. This is also one of my favorites among watches. I have the same one but I wouldn’t say no the purple or orange one as well! J You just turn the bezel and set the time where ever you go in the world. Also stylish!

Anddd…. There are always DIY gifts. You can use the “tailored and handmade with love’ card… Attach pictures on canvas to ribbon. :)
I write a men’s fashion blog from a woman’s point of view; therefore I receive gifts mostly for men for review (as expected). To be honest unisex gifts are more appreciated. J
Whilst I was planning my trip to Dusseldorf and Holland for the weekend I received this lovely watch from Atop TimeZone UK yesterday. As I knew the brand already; it was a great gift just before my trip.
AND AS I ALWAYS SAY; THERE ARE 3 ESSENTIALS FOR MEN’S FASHION:
For those of you that haven’t met Atop watches yet; here is the super power of this watch:
First of all it is World Time patented.
The system works on time zones so it doesn't have all the city names in the world (that would be difficult). But once you know what timezone your destination is in (there is also a list for this in the instruction manual); then you basically twist the watch bezel, set it to the city you want and the hands change on the clock face to the correct time.
This will be especially handy for me as I do love to travel a lot so I can just turn the bezel of the watch and see the local time and do the same thing to know what the time is back home. The design of the watch really caught my eye by the way; the colour, the leather strap, the quality and the unique system.
There is also a “DST – Daylight Saving Time” indicator which you can use to set your watch to DST in the summer.
As you see Atop watches make great choice for travelers. It is also one of the most useful gadget if you have a long distance relationship because you will know at what time you should call her/him or if she/he is awake or not…
One last thing… These watches are winners of the Reddot Design Awards and If Design Awards.
The cities that are on the watch bezel are as follows:
Rio de Jenerio
As the brand has informed me it’s a unisex watch but I used a male model to take the photos because it looks better on men and this is a men’s fashion blog afterall J
The watch that was sent to me is from the WWB range with a real leather strap which are priced at £165.
I checked their website – way before they sent me one – and they also sell online the VWA range with rubber straps in 12 different colours which are also unisex and priced at £80.
