Classic. Understated. Debonair. These 4 men’s fashion looks are staples of any gent’s wardrobe this autumn/winter season and are bound to create the right impression.
Whether contrasting or complementing, be bold with colour and brave with material layering with this classic men’s fashion trends.
Bomber and baseball jackets are strong looks in the world of men’s fashion this autumn/winter and heavily feature in unapologetic bright mustards and midnight royal blues – two of the season’s leading colours. Textures and fabrics range in this style from soft, brushed cotton to glossed leathers with small matte collars and contrasting darker panels around the waist and underarm.
Formal jackets take on a regal appearance with monochrome floral and paisley prints popping with bursts of deep exotic oranges and claret reds sinking into satin and silk fabrics.
Style Tip: Brave bright colour panels when choosing bomber and baseball jackets to make a statement and brighten up colder days. Embrace the extravagant and wear pyjama-like silk jackets safe in the knowledge that you’re right on trend, and fabulously so.
Grey-on-grey, from dark charcoals to light granite grey hues apply to shirts, waistcoats and suit jackets this autumn/winter, with many designers creating outfits that play on the contrast of smooth and course textures in grey layered formal outfits.
Injecting a colour personality into the grey-on-grey trend is the return of the pocket square and contrasting lapels. Popular in a spectrum of bright colours, patterned handkerchiefs are prominent in top pockets and standout lapels match undershirts to offer a lick of colour to suit jackets.
Style Tip: Experiment with contrasting fabrics to really make a feature of this men’s fashion statement. Try satin shirts, fine woollen waistcoats and heavy cotton suit jackets. Mix and match pocket squares between outfits and dare to clash these with contrasting lapels.
Gilets wrap men in wool this autumn/winter in a mixture of checked, speckled and fur-lined materials and prints. Embellished with dark feature zips, necklines vary from high-neck with small or no collars to deep V-necks.
The return of the roll-neck jumper lets men approach this trend tentatively in dusky blues, light greys and subtle reds. Oversized squares appear across both trends and also slip over into other woollen outerwear items, in particular formal coats.
Style Tip: Mix and match gilets with roll necks for an ultimate style submission. Oversized squares add a little extra to any woollen look, but be wary of over-complicating outfits with too many distracting fabrics, textures and prints.
No longer are woollen gloves the accessory of choice in men’s fashion for colder months, as leather in a range of mustard yellows, deep burgundies and classic brown and blacks becomes the only way to wear warmth. Contrasting bright primary coloured shoe cases also offer a bright addition to autumn/winter fashion and appear particularly in casual trainer styles to add a spring of personality into steps.
Style Tip: Choose from a range of leather glove styles to contrast the colour tones in your outfit or opt for similar shades to lengthen arms. Try to match colour cases in casual shoes with one colour already in your outfit to optimise this look.
