Once upon a time you thought you'd never wear skinny jeans. Now look at you, cutting off circulation to your body in the coolest way possible in the tightest denim around.
Sometimes you need other people to test the water before you dive into a daring trend (like last year's capes that made you look like a crap Batman). So if you're searching for the big new looks that have been tried and tested, here are the styles seeping into the mainstream.
Birkenstocks with trousers and socks
What was once reserved as a cliched look for tourists and eighties teen movie geeks is now a big look on and off the catwalk. And not only do they look good, Birks also follow the shape of your feet to offer support and better movement.
If you're tired of the full beard trend, give your neck and chin a breath of fresh air and opt for a moustache instead. Male model and king of facial hair Ricki Hall has just had the snip (not like that), so maybe it's time to make the change.
Silk pyjama shirts
If you ever aspired to be like Hugh Hefner (minus the womanizing creepiness) then this is your first step to achieving it. Silk pyjama style shirts are now acceptable to be worn outside the house, as Ryan Gosling proved at Cannes Film Festival.
