The coming season calls for bold, look-at-me prints that come in pairs. The print-on-print trend brings a playful touch to a man’s look as Eric Effiong does it, deviating from the regal ensembles of fall. Navigate the circus of patterns by opting for tailored pieces and play with classic proportions. We live in crazy times, so why not mirror it on your wardrobe.
Travel back in time with finishing touches that could take your look a notch higher in style. The must-have accessories of the season channel reimagined men’s staples from the rustic pieces and the metallics to eyewear in different shades. Think of Tony Starks’ multicolored lenses, ’90s hip hop chain chokers, and classic baseball hats styled with PVC buckles
EARTH AND LEATHER
Deep tans, army greens, and rusted burgundy may give an autumnal tone, but who cares? Break the rules this season by donning key fall colors in shiny faux or genuine leather. Get inspired by Rick Dalton’s flair for tinted leather in the movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood or Peter Quill’s in Guardian’s of the Galaxy.
The easy and comfortable, flowy pants trend exudes formality in a casual manner. This style is a chameleon. Pair the pants with sandals for a stroll on the beach, brogues to amplify class, and sneakers for a street vibe. These billowy trousers create an illusion of longer legs. Plus, they’re groovy and fashion-forward as well.
Breathable sweaters call for added inches this coming season, something that would hit or hide the fingers. These elongated sleeves bring in a new proportion on the classic preppy look, making it look cozier and chill, but totally luxe. The ones that bear the stripes in classic blue are perfect for a nautical getaway.
Think unconventional tie-dyes, watercolor prints, doodle for fun, this artistic top imbibes joy and adventure. Pieces that evoke the style of the Mad Hatter or the milky brushstrokes of Claude Monet are instant attention-grabbers, making its wearer the perfect canvas.
A trend for all season, athleisure is now a way of life and style, merging casual ease with clean and well put together ensembles. From dressy parkas and chunky sneakers to color-blocked pieces, these are must-try styles for the coming season.
