‘This is a man’s world. But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl.’ We know this, they know this. But let’s not take all the credits, because there’s something else that makes the man for sure. In a sexy way. In a rough way. In a badass way. In a Insta-masculine way. And mainly in a hipster way. Something that has been big bigger biggest for the past few years. We don’t even have to start guessing right, as we all know we’re talking about beards here. It’s been so big, that we almost can’t image our men without. But times change, and so does fashion (of course). Turns out, the bushy beard is deader than the Backstreet Boys, and the clean-cut man-boy is hotter than Justin Bieber’s Sorry. Yeps, we’re going towards a clean, minimal and crisp look. The ultimate symbol of cool and manliness is changing.

Take a good look at these elegant gentleman (yes, even without beards) and absorb some inspiration on how to rock this babyface. Will all men adapt to this new trend? We’re kind of doubtful. I mean, why fix something that’s not broken and looks incredibly hot on you? On the other hand, even for men, being less trend-orientated human beings, it’s good to try something new every once in a while. If necessary, start with a three-day beard or stubbles before making the big jump. And keep in mind, until 2012 it never was any problem for super manly men like James Dean, George Clooney and James Bond.

Streetstyle Trend Report 2011: the beard

You might have already noticed, but there are a lot of men with beards lately. Just take a look around, especially during the fashion weeks, and you see them everywhere. Like they all decided to let it grow.

It seems like a beard is becoming more and more of a style statement for men. Like a good hat or a graceful pair of glasses, a beard can do the same thing. It often gives a man more attitude and character and it signifies masculinity and confidence. Sometimes that rough edge can make him look very interesting too.  They all look totally different when it comes to their personal style, but they all share this one remarkable style element: a beard.
