Prints were a hot trend for women last season, and not only is the trend continuing, but men are getting in on the fashion fun. From Miguel, Ne-Yo and Wiz Khalifa wearing the same Saint Laurent striped jacket on Grammy night to Jeremy Scott’s fashion week show, guys are expressing their love of patterns. And we can’t blame them. They range from trendy polka dots to classic camo, but prints can add a fun touch to any look.
