With spring and summer seasons finally coming to an end, combined with the autumn and winter months now well and truly amongst us. Its important to re-think your wardrobe and prepare for the autumn/winter collections. T-shirts and shorts are no longer required and warm clothes such as knit jumpers, leather jackets and jeans now becoming the staple of our clothing choices. With the combination of new colours and styles.
The previous years of mens fashion, particularly during the winter months, were predominantly focussed on dark colours. With black or navy knitted jumpers or jackets at the forefront. But in 2012 there is a large change. With colours being used to emphasise individuality and also style. Not to mention the come back of the leather bomber jacket. This type of jacket has made an alarming comeback with large appeal throughout fashion shows. Being a large testament to time, with its iconic look the leather bomber jacket, and leather jackets in general, are a men’s staple autumn/fashion item. The bomber jacket has high versatility and their usual cropped length, combined with an increased selection of colours help sets itself apart from any other piece of clothing.
Assisting the leather bomber jacket this season is the increased focus on military apparel. From aviator sunglasses to trench coats combined with the key green and khaki colours. So expect to see a high number of military inspired designs this autumn and winter. This includes fashion items with embellishments and embroidered epaulettes, helping make each fashion piece stand out. But lets not forget the current demand, especially for those in the UK, for outerwear. From lightweight jackets to leather jackets and heavy wool trench coats.
Moving from the heavy leathers and military inspired designs, lets view the lighter but highly essential fashion items this season. Such as the other staple knitwear. Jumpers are simple and attractive and more importantly warm. Featuring simple but classic colours and a variety of ribbed and cable stitching. Also, consider adding cardigans to your wardrobe this winter, as these not only provide another thick layering during the colder months but also help compliment stripe and plaid shirts. Helping provide individuality and colour into an often dull and colourless outfit.
Finally, lets focus on blazers, which are often underrated and overlooked. For example tweed blazers are an ideal layer to help fight against the cold. Although many consider the blazer as formal wear, that can only be worn at special occasion. In fact its versatility during summer and winter months is again over looked. The elegance and warmth it provides is unmatched, with its casual appeal becoming more present. For example, layering a blazer with many of the current fashionable mens t-shirts, and jeans with brogues is a smart and casual appearance, but also with a hint of elegance.
Consider all of these top fashion tips this autumn and winter, and learn to escape the cold whilst remaining fashionable and keeping up with the current trends. The key is to remember to always try going out of your comfort zone. It is by doing this new styles and unexpected clothing will become visible and increase your outlook and options.
