Alright guys, it’s your turn to update your look with fall’s latest. Just a few key pieces will go a long way towards modernizing your wardrobe for the new season. Here are our top 5 must-haves:
1. The Leather Tie: Leather dominated (heh) the fall runways for both women’s and menswear. Rock this trend in a totally unexpected way by pairing a leather tie, like this one from Jil Sander, with a classic John Varvatos’ slim fit shirt and Travis jeans in Black Night.
3. Checker Print: A little bit of pattern goes a long way, so wear the season’s biggest print in the form of an accessory and pair it with something simple. Our reco: Clay jeans in Machine Selvage, a traditional button-down and this Colombo checkered scarf.
4. Cords: Give a warm welcome to fall by stepping into the season’s ultimate fabric…corduroy. For a retro-prep look, pair your slim Travis Corduroys in Mink with Steven Alan’s plaid collegiate shirt. If you’re feeling daring, rock the cord-on-cord trend by pairing Travis Cords in Camel with a sleek corduroy sport coat, like this J.Crew option.
5. The Driver’s Cap: There’s much to be said about this classic cap: It has long been an accoutrement of the everyday man and stylish guys alike; it made a comeback on the Fall 2012 runways in a range of prints and textures, and it gives off a boyish charm that’s hard for women to resist. Try out this Brixton Hooligan Driver’s Cap with Travis jeans in Colonial and a neutral knit. When it cools down, add a classic top coat to the look.
