We know it’s early- you’re just getting used to your new sunnies, girls are finally developing their tan lines- but it’s never too early to build your fall look, especially since your fall wardrobe is already hitting stores. Last week, we covered Fall/Winter ’13 RTW collections and the trends that are sure to become closet staples this fall for women. This week it’s all about you, gentlemen.
The varsity-style bomber jacket was seen on almost every catwalk this season. With plush fabrics and a slim cut, this is one of the season’s easiest trends to master whether worn in the workplace or on the weekend. Our favorite? Missoni’s suede number with signature striped paneling, which looks perfect paired with slim, grey wool trousers. Grey worn head-to-toe made an appearance at the likes of Bottega Veneta, Viktor & Rolf, and Wooyoungmi and really popped when worn with contrasting hues and patterned underpinnings. Take your charcoal trousers to evening attire by adding the already infamous leather baseball jacket seen at Calvin Klein Collection. The loudest plaid you’ve ever seen, coined by many as “oversize squares”, will be in full swing this fall as well. If the full-check suits at Valentino are a bit strong, try a supersize square sweater from Jil Sander. Swapping a sweater for your usual shirt and tie is an easy wardrobe update that is stylish without trying too hard. Other overarching themes for fall- turtlenecks, hiking boots, and head-to-toe blue- will make clients notice and colleagues kowtow. Last but not least, invest in a camel outerwear jacket or a motorcycle leather. Either choice will elevate your 9-5 outfit and also make you stand out at dinner and drinks. If you’re feeling really daring, dawn a Salvatore Ferragamo or Maison Martin Margiela cape. It’s a bold look, but, hey, it’s time to stand out.
