Spring is probably the best time of the season for guys, and the worst time for others. It's the season where most guys begin to show off what they've been working on all time around - their six pack. Hate them.

No, I don't literally hate these guys, but they do have access to more resources. And you know what I mean about this. Anyways, you probably wonder what does this have to do with this Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear Trends posts? Well, it does have something in common. 

Stripes are by far the best designs out there for men. They have been in the market for years, and in the spring they are stronger than ever. There is one reason why they are so popular in the spring/summer season. The answer is simple. They form an illusion that makes you appear more pumped up. It adds volume to your body in a very masculine form. By this I mean that it actually tones down your torso to make you seem more slimmer and athletic. This is why it doesn't really work on skinny guys. Sorry.

When dealing with stripes, I prefer to use the thick bold stripes like Maison Kitsune's striped polo shirt, because it actually defines your torso equally well. Oh, and it lengthens your torso, which can make your appear slightly taller.

For spring's 2013 trend, choose vibrant stripes that add a youthful masculine touch to all your looks. Don't be afraid to play with colors. As long as you have those vibrant stripes put on, the rest should be kept toned down to achieve your desired effects. If you are a risk taker, then hope your colors won't make you look all gay.
