We are all concerned with putting our best foot forward when it comes to our public appearance, but not every man wants to be trendy. Even if your style runs to more classic lines and good tailoring, knowing the latest fashion trends and incorporating one or two into your wardrobe each season helps keep your style modern. This is not only good fashion sense, but it’s also great for business as clients and colleagues will know you’re a man who’s up-to-date with the times. Here are five fall trends as determined by style makers in the know.
Maybe it’s the smell of quality leather or the way it just gets better with age, but a great leather jacket should be a staple in every man’s wardrobe. This fall, leather jackets with metal embellishments are right on trend, although you’ll never go wrong with a more simple leather bomber in black or brown.
Geometric Print Knitwear
Those classic 80s geometric print sweaters are back in style this fall, in all colors and prints. Whether you go bold with oranges, reds and greens, or you choose more muted tones, wear one over an undershirt or dress it up by wearing it over a standard collared shirt and you’re set for a casual Friday at the office or on the town for date night.
Originally created for British soldiers during World War I, trench coats are a classic men's fashion staple. Whether you go with a slick, water-resistant material or a classic wool from Burberry, trenches are another piece that you can use year after year.
For those brisk autumn days, no other top is as warm as a turtleneck. To make sure you’re on trend this autumn though, it’s all about the fit and the material. A snugly fit turtleneck in a great Merino wool or cashmere paired with dress slacks is a solid look for the office. You can also dress it down and pair it with relaxed-leg jeans for another on-trend look.
Red and Sand
The hottest color trends this fall are red and sand. Incorporate these colors into your looks and you’ll be right on style. One of the best ways to do this is by adding a piece of men’s jewelry. A sterling silver and created ruby ring accented with diamonds is a great look. To incorporate the color with a bit more a wow factor, consider this sterling silver created ruby ring with black rhodium accent and 1/4ct. TDW. If yellow gold is more your style, this 10k created ruby doublet ring is the perfect way to bring in the red. Prefer a look with diamonds? Try this 10k created ruby doublet with diamond accent.
No matter if you choose to incorporate one or more of these trends into your style this fall, you’re sure to be noticed. For more tips and our latest updates, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn or Instagram!
