"Haute in the City" The Fall Guy
Nothing turns heads like a well-dressed man. From incomparable tailored styles to the clean and classic casual look, fall fashion trends promise optimum comfort, tailored perfection in rich hues and flattering fabrics.
For the man on the go, comfort no matter where you're heading in the autumn, there's a look that's well-suited (literally and figuratively) for you. Here's our fall fashion guide for just about every occasion.
Sharp Casual Style
A great jacket can instantly transform your style. I’m seriously swooning over the divine details of this jacket from Greenhaw's. The rich color and exquisite texture will quickly breathe life into your fall ensemble. Pair this incredible piece with khakis or casual slacks to create a look that will have the girls going crazy for a sharp dressed man!Prefer the casual preppy style? Make the look your own with Culture Clothing’s relaxed rendition of the classic man, achieved by adding a comfortable tee and your favorite jean.
Stepping Into Style
The lace-up makes a stylish comeback in a variety of earthy colors. Another one of my favorite footwear picks for the fall is the Chelsea boot. These boots were made for rocking your favorite smart jeans or a tailored suit for your best fall look.
Clean and Classic Casual
Nothing beats a great pair of jeans and a denim jacket for the guy who’s classic at heart. The clean and casual style is a fashion tale as old as time that will never cease to be revised. This effortless look can be modified to suit any style preference by simply choosing the likes of a classic white tee, polo, sweater or button-down to pull the look together.
Back to School Cool
Back to school is upon us and as a mother of a teenage boy, I’ll be the first to admit that shopping for a teenager is no easy feat — period.
The layered look is one of the most popular fall trends. The key to pulling this style off without a hitch? You need to be able to remove an outer layer without compromising the style of your outfit.
My secret weapon here is knowing that all of your pieces must look great as an ensemble, as well as standalone items. So rule number one is make sure each separate piece looks good alone as well as when paired with other pieces.
To perfect the art of layering a look, also consider essential tips such as layering thin to thick, colors and patterns. (I promise to delve deeper into this styling option as it gets cooler.)
These tips however will give you a great head start to being the season’s most fashionable fall guy!
