This style trend might get expensive, but if you want to up your swagger game, be prepared to spend some dough. Mix and match multi-colored shoes for a wacky, shocking look! Only the snazziest of dudes could pull this one off. Stingy guys may actually be in luck, considering Nike sold these kicks a few years back with one blue and one red! For 2015, bring the bold trend back for a ridiculously fresh getup.

Construction Chic

Take a fashion cue from Justin Bieber, and try out a flashy hard-hat-inspired headpiece. Maintenance worker uniforms never looked so chic! A blinged out or studded helmet is sure to grab some serious attention. Experiment with bold shapes, neon colors, and shiny adornments. Your avant-garde urban look will get everyone jealous. For guys scared to commit, think about some simple studs or jewels on a baseball cap.

Casual Bow Ties

Don’t be afraid to bring formal wear to the streets this year! Skip the tuxedo and accessorize your casual jeans and top with a quirky bow tie. This guy is owning the street with his finished look, which even includes unexpected pajama slippers and a fur shawl. Swaggy dudes know how to mix and match. Don’t think that your formal suit and tie need to collect dust in the closet all year! Bust them out for some surprising flair.

Throwback Zubaz

Back in the 1990s, every gym rat tried to outdo the next by sporting wacky Zubaz pants complete with neon colors and ridiculous patterns. The trend has long since died, but apparently it’s back! Runways are loving the unique, eye-grabbing look with animal prints, optical illusions, and standout colors combinations on bottoms. Just don’t wear the spandex version too tight!

Crazy Cutouts

Reputable designers have been purposely cutting holes in jeans for decades. So, it’s about time that we embrace the tattered shirt look. For the guy in search of swag, this fashion strategy costs absolutely nothing except for a bit of artistic talent. The punk rocker feel of a creepy skull slashed into the back of your tee is super interesting and chic. It might leave you chilly on a brisk winter day, but with risk comes satisfying swagger reward!

More Velcro

In addition to being the coolest dude on the block, these kicks offer the kind of security no shoelace can provide! The sleek, urban look of a pair of white velcro sneakers is clean and classic. But taken to the extreme, these strappy high tops by designer Les Hommes give instant swag! They may look like fashion made for the lunatic asylum, but trendy dudes can pull them off on top of a classic pair of denim jeans.

Mickey Mouse Hat

This isn’t the hat you wore in Disney World! Popular global fashion retailer SSENSE debuted this charcoal grey beanie featuring mouse ears last year. They flew off shelves despite their astonishing $300+ price point. Apparently the theme park look is in, as you can no longer find them for sale. For brave guys looking for a nostalgic touch to their wardrobe, maybe grandma can knit you one!

Amish Chic

Let’s face it: if you were walking the streets of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, this look wouldn’t turn a single head. But in the heart of America’s urban cities, Amish chic is setting the swag bar high! Designers are loving wide-brim hats and head-to-toe black ensembles for 2015. If you have the fashion guts to take the plunge, the style is easy to perfect. Just make sure you grow a stylish beard to match!

Crochet Creations

What was once considered an afghan blanket is now acceptable as men’s casual wear! Get out your needlepoint and make a splash with some crocheted shorts, tops, and onesies. You need some serious skill to create these designs yourself, but fear not. With the rise in popularity of festivals like Coachella and Burning Man, professional clothiers are offering the funky, vintage look for those willing to pay. These pieces start at around $50, and it’s well worth it!

Arctic Outerwear

Men’s luxury designer Belstaff is forging this year’s outerwear trends, and for 2015, more is more! It’s never too early to prepare for the icy cold of winter. Whether you call the North Pole home or not, outdo the other guys by investing in a swaggy parka befitting an Alaskan dog musher. You’ll stay warm while making a striking fashion statement.

Long Sweaters

Ladies love their duster cardigans, but we rarely see them on guys! Last fall season, lots of urban designers were toying with length, outfitting their models with long, booty-draping sweatshirts and sweaters. This one comes complete with a sash to slim and cinch your waist. Do you have enough swag to pull it off?

Flood Pants

Guys are rarely seen in ankle length bottoms of any kind, unless their shorts are sagging. But when combined with a skinny jean silhouette, the cropped look is super fresh! It’s about time men had a little variety in their wardrobes, and a loungy capri pant looks just as stylish on them as on the ladies. If you’re comfortable exposing your ankles, try out this look with some classic Converse kicks and a casual sweater. It’s sure to turn some heads.

Hawaiian Chic

When people think of palm trees and coconuts, they’re reminded of a suburban dad’s backyard barbecue shirt. But guys with swag pull them off all year long! Embrace the look of the islands with a pair of unexpected flower print pants, such as those featured on designer Tom Ford’s runway last year. What was once tacky is now sophisticated. Only a style genius could pull it off, and if you try hard enough, that genius can be you!

Cats

Cats bring instant credibility to any swaggy gentleman, and in the year 2015, this is no exception! Embrace your inner feline lover and flaunt your kitty-embroidered duds. No hipster’s style is complete without the cutesy, ironic imaging of your aunt’s favorite sweater. Wear your cat proudly, and your bold style will get the entire neighborhood talking!

Jelly Sandals

That’s correct. International designers as well-known and respected as Phillip Lim are bringing back the jelly sandal, but this time, they’re not for women! Only the swaggiest of guys can leave the privacy of their homes in this look. But if you toss on a pair of classic short shorts and head down to the pool, you’re sure to be a style sensation!

Sunglasses

If we could all transform into Brad Pitt, then all our swagger troubles would be over. But since that’s impossible, seek the alternative. Grab a pair of cool shades to give yourself an instant boost of mystery and intrigue. The suave look of a classic pair of aviators or Ray Bans is perfect for morning, noon, and night. No matter how cheap or expensive your clothing, some stunning specs can improve your look in an instant. Remember to never take them off, even if you can’t see a thing.

Man Bag

Also known as a “murse,” the man bag is a symbol of effortless masculine confidence. If you’re looking to assert your swagger this season, there’s no better way than to send a bold signal with your very own purse. For decades, guys have had to fend for themselves without the fashion convenience of an over the shoulder bag. Thanks to today’s popular designers like Armani, Alexander McQueen, and Burberry, they no longer have to suffer. Grab your go-to items, ditch your backpack, and wear your strappy murse proudly.

Swag Shirts

What better way to pronounce your swaggy status than with a shirt that announces it loudly and proudly? A #hashtag only ups the swagger ante. In all seriousness, there are lots of bold risks men can take this year to put their best fashion feet forward. Be unique, fun, and as carefree with your style as possible. Make it your own, and you’re sure to have a successful fashion moment in 2015.
