‘All pressed up in Black and White’ is without a doubt a highly attributable phrase for fall fashion. The catwalks have been brimming with crisp white shirts and seductive, slim fitting black suits. This emergence of monochrome has been seen previously in the fashion world and created a bold statement. It may also have bled through, following spring/summer’s ‘all white’ trend.
The return to classic tones and reversion from colour makes a classic, yet simplistic statement. A combination of separates in a muted palette can be pulled off by any man with ease. This defined look is bound to attract attention, but if autumn is crisp enough for you adding a touch of grey can soften the mood. Grey hues help break up this sharp palette and allow the wearer to play with shades to their hearts content.
The black mac is back, but maybe not for too long. There’s a new coat parading, or should I say padding, its way into town. Quilted jackets have made a comeback; gone are the dreaded one size fits all neon marshmallow winter cover-ups. Balenciaga and Calvin Klein are just a few designer names to be re-inventing this 90s trend. Padding and quilting have toned down and slim fits are the new aim. Some light padding provides outwear with a dynamic look, perfect for the winter months. Steer clear of any high street spin offs that may result in you looking like a foam sweet or as though you are on a science fiction adventure (unless this is the look you’re going for, of course).
So, suited and booted in monochrome or quilted in bubbles, this fall is the time to make a statement. Just try not to fuse these trends together, save sports enthusiast meets classic attire for the sports luxe genre.
