As summer comes, the new styles for men have reached the market. The fashion industry has not restricted itself to women only. It has also taken care of men's taste and their desire to look good. Here are some new ideas of fashion for men.

If you are planning to shop then it is the right time to break your piggy banks. There hasn't been a more exciting menswear but this summer'08 has optimism. It's modern, yet classic and manages to draw influences from contemporary culture. The big trends are colour, tech fabric and new denim trends. First let's talk about colour. This summer has sprung and the big designers are feeling optimistic.

White is everywhere on the runway for summer and for a man white is a staple colour for wardrobe. In this summer a fad of white trench coats come at Burberry London.

The white blazer that has amazing versatility. A white blazer can be worn with everything from jeans to chinos to dress slacks. It can be used like a khaki blazer. It's much cooler, riskier and way modern. Big designer houses like Paul Smith to Hugo Boss everybody is doing it this season. For the truly brave do a full on suit in white from Valentino, Ferragamo or even Club Monaco.

The white pant has emerged huge for men for summer'08. Again wear it with chinos. Chino is a fabric, khaki in colour. Buy white pants in flat and a slightly flair leg like the amazing ones from Trina Turk Men.

The best and great thing about white is you can pair it with a colourful stripped shirt from Paul Smith or a navy shirt. White trousers look amazing when paired with a printed blazer.

You can flaunt white trouser with barely rose, almost pink double-vented blazer from Zara with a deep white deep vee tee from American Apparel. But only at night, that's a lot of colour for daytime! Men accessories are really important. A great way to incorporate colour into your wardrobe is with ties and pocket squares.

Whether it's a floral pocket square from Paul Smith to metallic touches like Gucci's silver lace-ups or the amazing PF flyer silver high tops or the green satin Nike Blazer low classics, accessories add colour, shine and personality to an outfit.

In this summer season a trend has come up and it is tech wear. It's a new fabric worn new ways. A new collection of Calvin Klein jackets are just fabulous. They are silver nylon and yeah eerily reminiscent of a late eighties track suit. But, what Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa managed to do it is take a new fabric and make what could be tacky look super-modern, light weight and chic.

Think of it as a nod to early 90s Prada nylon mixed with work out clothes and high designs. What both Calvin Klein and D&G have managed to do is take these fabrics and sort of passé styles and make the look current and hip.

Accessorising is the key to make sure your twister jeans not only advertise a fun loving nature but also a sense of style. A simple, plain bottom shirt or T- shirt can add subtlety to your outfit, con trasting the bold lines of the jeans, while a check shirt, another one of this season's fashion must stamp your own personality on the outfit.

Twister jeans are fast becoming a tried and tested choice for making a casual, yet stylish impression, suitable for socialising and semi-formal occasions.

With the great success of the levis twister jean, development in denim styles have been fast paced over the past few years alongside the development of even more different style.

Now a common site in the work place, the ever increasing range of denim cuts and colours allow men to wear jeans with almost any other item in their wardrobe. So that's what makes you look like a star this summer!

Get out there and shop and take no prisoners.
