From Heroic Workout Wear to Origami Bow Ties

Men's fashion trends have evolved drastically over the past decade, as gender roles begin to shift and men become more comfortable with using fashion as a means of expression. Thus, the years 2011 and 2012 saw a lot more androgyny in menswear, with fashionistos reigning supreme; 2013, however, sees a space in fashion carved out for every type of man, from the geek to the jock.

Specifically for the jock, workout wear was a big focal point for men's fashion trends this year, with pieces like the super-heroic jogging sets creating a happy marriage between kitschy, couture and health-conscious. Pop culture-referencing apparel also made a transition from strictly goofy graphic tees to runway-worthy.

Most notably, menswear mimicked the DIY pattern seen in womenswear in 2013, encouraging more creativity with style-conscious fellas. This was seen in ideas like the origami bow tie.
