You might have milked those cargo shorts and flip flops for a few more weeks than you should have but now it’s undeniable, the weather is absolutely crisp. We are in the thick of fall. After pulling out your favourite sweaters and military boots from last year, we invite you to welcome a new season with the latest trends in menswear for 2013. From updated footwear (get in a pair of Chukkas) to an inexpensive accessory update, these are the top ten fall/winter 2013 trends for men that will have you looking tight, together and on point!
Think big when it comes to your scarf. Whether you rock a large double wrapper or a small handkerchief style, the idea is to make your scarf a bold statement piece. Experiment with way of wrapping and tying to find something that looks and feels cool to you.
Quilting is the perfect mixture of function and fashion. Keep warm with a quilted jacket or vest, but don’t stop there. Quilting has been making its way onto sweaters, shirts and pants too.
Far from making you blend into the background, camouflage lets you stand out from the crowd. This fall/winter 2013 classic camo is joined by modern remixes on the print from digital camos through to vibrant makeovers of the standard olive palette. Explore items other than pants too, like the Call It Spring STEANS.
The it colour this season, burgundy abounds in everything from the aforementioned statement scarves to bloody brogues. Work this deep hue in with other fall tones like mustard and olive to create a playful palette or add as a pop with an all neutral look.
A chunky knit cardigan is the ideal garment to keep you warm in the fall season. Use it as outer wear, and as it gets colder switch it to an insulation layer. Cable stitching, Nordic patterns and heritage motifs (reindeer anyone?) are great details to look for in your hunt for the perfect chunky cardigan.
Chukka (or desert boot)
Chukka boots are the ideal hybrid shoe for maintaining that sauve edge without looking like you really tried. A little rugged and a lot cool, these kicks were raved about earlier this month as one of our top 5 must-have shoes for dudes. Gett’em here.
Grey on Grey
Go monotone by layering grey on grey. This soft neutral makes a strong impact, mirroring the seasonal skyline and steely mood of fall’s transition into winter. Mix different shades and textures for the most modern feel.
A simple roll at the bottom of your pants is an easy way to step up your style. The look right now is paired with a higher boot to expose the upper, hence keep those pipe stove skinnies and sneakers at home for this trend.
Not just for the high school jocks, the varsity jacket is a preppy outerwear alternative for fall. Go vintage with a trip to the thrift store, or check out the newest designs from top designers. We favor, mixed media styles that combine wool and leather.
Be an explorer this fall/winter13 season in some haute hiking boots. Hiking boots can see you through the rugged outdoors or the urban landscape. Try the Call It Spring KADER hiking boots. The lining will keep your feet nice and toasty on those chilly mornings.
