THE LOOSE, LAYERED LOOK IS COMING
ARE YOU READY FOR AUTUMN?
With the change in season just around the corner, the change in fashion has already started. If you want to stay ahead of the game and keep your style when fall sets in, you need to make sure you have some of the following in your wardrobe.
Grey is the colour of the season
Whatever style you go for, the colour for fall this year is grey. Both casual and smart outfits are all demonstrating various shades of grey, so a closet full of grey is not a bad thing this year. If you want to add a touch of colour, try matching with deep green.
For a few years now trends have seen clothes getting tighter. However, this is not the case this year. Tight fitting tops, skinny jeans and tailored outwear have given way to a much more looser look. Trousers seen on the fashion catwalks are getting baggier and this is now translating into the highstreet stores. It’s not just trousers that have loosened up either. Outwear has also been given this treatment and popular coats this season are ones which look loose and slightly oversized. these are often made from wool and hang just above, or just below the knee. Again this applies to both casual and smart styles, although the smarter the style, the less loose the coat should be.
Fall is the season of layers because the weather can be so unpredictable that you can never be sure what to wear. The difference in layering this year is that fashion is favouring the jumper, and not just for one of the layers. Thin jumpers are being used as one layer with a thicker knit on top. To pull off this style it is advised that you opt for a thin merino wool type rollneck which will be seen but won’t make you too hot.
Practical vs. Style
When it comes to autumn footwear you can be forgiven for thinking that you need to step away from style and lean more towards the practical. The threat of rain can become a daily occurrence and no-one wants their best shoes ruined. Of course, if you want to have both style and practicality you need to invest in a pair of Hunter boots.
Fashion for men this fall has taken style in a new direction with looser garments and jumper layering. These are versatile looks that can be worn by anyone regardless of whether they have a naturally casual or smart style. Investing in a few pieces of these items will make sure you stay on trend and look great when the weather changes.
