Boots, Boots, Boots!

For so long it seemed like men only had two choices when it came to winter shoes: loafers or oxfords. This year it’s all about boots! Stylish casual and dress boots have long been a staple in every woman’s wardrobe,  and it seems men are catching on and adopting them into their wardrobes as well.

(And personally, I’m thinking this is a trend that’s gonna stick!)

Leather or suede boots  in a seasonal color adorned with buckles and intricate lacing are perfect for a casual look.  Paired with a slim-cut cuffed jean, boots are an effortless way to make a statement in your everyday wear. Throw on a burgundy sports coat or olive green sweater and you can easily take this outfit from day to night. For a more sophisticated look, opt for a sleek leather boot in black or brown with minimal garnishing.

Warm, Rugged, and Manly (WINTER) Accessories

winteraccessoriesWinter Must-Haves:

  1. A good scarf…and yes a scarf can be manly. When buying a scarf, choose a wool or cashmere blend, stick to basic colors, and when it comes to patterns and prints, embrace them!
  2. Nice gloves. Spring for a pair in black or brown leather with a nice cashmere lining. They will be nice and warm, without being bulky or clownish.
  3. A hat of some-sort. I love the aviation caps. They remind me of childhood, they’re incredibly warm, and they’re on trend this season. This is a hat that a man of any age can rock.

Trending Threads: Fall

Now that LDW is over, summer has officially come to end. That means it’s time to put away the brights, whites, and pastels, as fall brings a whole new pallet of colors that are darker, richer, and certainly more pigmented.  Along with the deeper tones and cooler temperatures is a wider range of wardrobe choices for men. The increase in options when you go to your closet stems mostly from the ability to layer in the fall (and winter) months. How far into the season, and depending on where you live, layering will take on a variety of meanings, but take advantage of the ability to throw on a few extra items.

Don’t be afraid to mix multiple colors and fabrics in one outfit; this season’s core colors compliment each other really well!
