Trends in fashion often reflect what is happening in our current culture. If times are thriving and the economy is stable or on the rise, people can afford to spend more and this ultimately drives Men's Fashion. If the economy is down, the trends will not change as fast because people will think twice before splurging on an outfit. From suits to shoes to Bowties and other accessories, trends are attributed to what society dictates. A great example of this is with Bowties. In the past bow ties were usually worn conservatively, never would it be cool or hip to wear a Purple and Gold two sided Bowtie, but now that more young actors and athletes are wearing bow ties it has become the latest fashion trend.
