Autumn is approaching, and with its arrival comes new seasonal trends in menswear. Here are a few of our top tips to help you stay up-to-date.
As the precursor to winter, Autumn fashion trends are mainly about getting cosy and introducing heavier pieces of clothing into one’s wardrobe. One way to do that in 2018 is focusing on is through shearling, or faux fur, coats. Shearling is durable, long lasting, warm and commonly comes in key seasonal colours, namely brown, which is perhaps why brands such as Giorgio Armani have released an Autumn jacket in shearling, featuring leather and suede.
Traditional colours for the season are still in fashion this year, the main ones being tan, orange and dark green, with a key focus being placed on brown this year. While darker browns are being incorporated by brands, they are mainly being used as an accent to lighter shades.
Take A Hike
Take a bold step with hiking boots coming back into fashion for this Autumn. Even Gucci blended fashion with function by debuting their own version of hiking boots for this season. So, whether you’re planning on trekking up the nearest hill or not, laced hiking boots are a new seasonal staple.
Staple Patterns? Check
Check designs, such as those used famously by Burberry are a crucial pattern this season. For a cohesive, traditionally Autumn-inspired look, layer browns and tans with check patterns in matching colours. Or, if you’re looking to change things up, why not clash check and tartan designs in contrasting colours?
Tips For Autumn Fashion
- Layer up and experiment with colours and patterns
- Be sure to include braces in accent colours to each of your outfits, both for practical reasons and to help incorporate your accent colour in a cohesive manner.
