Five Key Menswear Trends For Winter
September 02, 2019
Summer said goodbye with one sweltering weekend and now we have delved right into autumn. With the cooler climate comes the time to start thinking about your winter wardrobe. Here are five key menswear trends to shop for the season.
1) Show Off Some Skin
Transitioning your tailoring from season to season can be tricky, but the catwalk's skin bearing suit gives some fresh inspiration for autumn. Take your cue from the likes of Dries Van Noten, Valentino and Prada and wear your suit jacket without a shirt. Unbutton it slightly to show off some skin, it'll give your smart go-to a rebellious edge.
2) Tonal Tones
Womenswear has loved the head to toe tonal look for a while, and this season it comes to menswear. Look to light tones such as beige, grey and off white and build up matching layers whether it's with three-piece tailoring or trousers with knitwear and overcoats. Bonus points if you also manage to match your footwear. You can offset the look with a statement watch, a crisp white dial will do the trick.
3) Streetwear Staple
Street style has a new hero piece this season, the oversized puffer jacket. The puffer has long been a casual must-have, but this year's version is bold. Whether it's a bright neon style, a patterned design or a plain black version, the bigger the better.
4) Wrap Up
Another oversized outerwear piece that'll quickly update your winter wardrobe is the scarf. Models were trailing them down every runway for A/W '19, it's no wonder they didn't trip over. Find a chunky knit style with lots of pattern and colour to make your outfit pop, or match it with your knitwear à la Ami to keep it chic.
5) Velvet Overload
There is always room for a velvet suit come winter. But this year's suits take it a step further to the usual festive get up, adding velvet accessories and shirts for some all over touchyfeely magic. Add a velvet tie in a matching shade to your trousers and jacket to bring it into high fashion territory. If you can't find a velvet shirt, look for one in the same colour as your suit and tie to bring the whole look together.
