There’s a common misunderstanding that religiously adhering to the numerous trends that a season sprouts equates to on-trend dressing. I n my opinion, this is not the case. The key to retaining your individual style lies in the ability to pick and choose which elements suit your current staple wardrobe and figuring out in what season to add them.
Having so many features heavily spotlighted at the beginning of a new season, we have gathered two from the latest menswear movements that are easy to incorporate into your wardrobe this year.
Liven up your wardrobe this winter with crucial pieces of clothing that make the colour blocking trend appear easy. This is the season where experimenting with your clothes is a must. From block-colour separates to pieces with varied sections of colour, segmented colour is a great way to inject some excitement into your look this season if colour isn’t your thing. If lighter shades aren’t your thing, colour-blocking is just as effective when you utilise darker hues.
The Look: LONG-SLEEVED MERINO POLO SHIRT $99, Colour-block knit $99, Slim fit trousers $125; COS
NEW SEASON DENIM JACKET
When it comes to weekend dressing, denim is undoubtedly the king. However, keep in mind that jeans aren’t the only way to incorporate the carefree appeal into your wardrobe. This season’s denim jacket is an excellent option for so many outfits, this season, it comes in the form of dark denim, and it is a vibe. A dark denim jacket is such a stylish option for men and a great alternative to a leather jacket budget-wise. The denim jacket is perfect for adding a simple yet modern finishing touch to an array of looks.
If owning a denim jacket wasn’t on the cards for you this season, trust this knowledge; it’s time to invest. Today, denim jackets are available in varied shapes and silhouettes; you have a lot of choices. If it all seems too much, opt for a classic cut that finishes on your hips. Fit wise; it should feel snug but not too tight. The classic cut will suit both casual and smart casual outfits and can be paired with just about anything in your wardrobe.
The Look; Rider jacket $299, Howe sweater $169, Loxton jean $189, Chinchilla boot $745; R.M. Williams
