Temperatures are getting cooler. Our favorite jeans, long sleeves, sweaters, scarves, and hats are being brought out from deep down in the closet. The question is, are those pieces from last year still trendy? More than likely with a couple adjustments, they are. Here are some tips when putting your looks together for fall fashion which is approaching rather quickly.
Scarves: If you are wearing a rather simple, sophisticated outerwear look, use a bold colored scarf to make it stylish. Hermes did exactly this in their fall 2015 menswear fashion show. Wearing a gray suit with a statement scarf is a must-have for fall and winter collection.
Dismantle Your Suit: If you have plans after work and you need to dress casual, make sure you wear the right pieces for your workday. If you plan on wearing your gray suit, make sure to wear either a simple, solid color dress shirt or a patterned one. This way when work is done, you can take off the jacket, undo the top couple buttons of your shirt, and look like a stylish gentlemen. For instance, choose paisley, plaid, polka dots, something that will make you stand out in the right way. When it comes to stripes, if you have a pinstripe suit and undershirt with stripes the same width, rock it. Givenchy did exactly this in his Fall 2015 Menswear Collection.
Patterned Suit: If you’ve got one that is easy on the eyes, yet intriguing, rock it this fall. However, do make sure it’s full of neutrals and not full of pastels (Do note that shades of red should be in your wardrobe as well). Fall is the season for neutrals and that’s exactly what Louis Vuitton presented.
Knits: These were in style last fall, and are yet again in style this fall. Top designers around the globe are making traditionally feminine knitted pieces and making them stylish and trendy for men. What is that piece exactly? A skirt. Givenchy used various knitted skirts paired with a pant leg and jacket in the 2015 fall collection. It’s something every man should consider and see if he can pull it off.
One last tip for my men out there, facial hair is great. However, even though it is considered “No Shave November,” I would advise you to at least trim it so it looks nice, and not straggly and food-filled like a caveman’s.
