The turn of the season need not mean downcast eyes while inwardly cursing the gradual – and perhaps sudden – drop in temperatures. Though fall means, ahem, an undeniable change of season, it also means a lineup of super ah-maze fall fashions sure to perk up those suffering from end-of-summer blues. Let’s talk shop: fall’s top trends for men are among the most varied to strike shelves in 2014. From bright colours to biker inspired jackets and bold prints, – men’s fall fashion is making a statement that’s not easy to ignore.
Orange you glad for orange?
Well, aren’t you? All shades, any day – orange really is the new black this fall season. If clementine isn’t your cup of tea, don’t fret; any tone of orange goes. If you’re struggling with the thought of wearing orange or are at a loss as to how to wear this fairly bold colour choice, ease yourself into the trend instead with a pop or hint of orange, like a tie or a striped sock. Gotta start somewhere, right?
Ah, yes – the turtleneck. Allow us to reminisce on the history that is the turtleneck. Worn by the likes of many famous figures, from the late Steve Jobs to the legendary (albeit fictional) character Ron Burgundy, the turtleneck has a long lived history, and rightly so. This fall season, whatever fit goes; from slim lined and snug to lose and lax the turtleneck is just about as versatile as clothing gets.
Make a scarf statement
Since when aren’t scarves a fall time must? Not only are they purposeful but this season they’re one of the most up-to-the-minute trends for men fall ’14. Just don’t keep your scarf under the radar. You can forget about the neatly tucked, French-esque scarf look because this time around it’s all about making your scarf the star of the show (next to you, of course).
We say ‘the boot’ with good reason. We’re speaking of the do-it-all boot, a must need for men this fall. It’s one style that’s really a no-brainer. It’s current, it’s practical and sooner rather than later you’re just going to need it (you know, for that awful fluffy white and sometimes slushy stuff). Check out Call it Spring’s DUBIANSKY.
Bombarded in leather
Well, not bombarded per se, just in the form of a bomber jacket. If we’re talking classic, the leather bomber jacket just about says it all. While it’s a hot ticket item for fall ’14, it’s nonetheless not likely to ever go out of style either. It’s one fashion buy you’ll likely never regret. Better yet, you can make it work with just about any outfit be it casual day or night out – enough reason to buy, no?
Again, much like you need ‘the boot’ so too do you need ‘the sneaker’. It’s a style that should be a staple in any guy’s wardrobe and, moreover, especially ideal for those days when outwardly appearance is low priority. Of course, your lack-of-enthusiasm needn’t come at a cost to your style, despite any indifference toward it that you may feel. Instead, slip into a simple pair of sneakers and make it work with those crop jeans and button-up. Check out Call it Spring’s BRANDEIS.
We mean camel coloured pieces all over, head-to-toe, cheek-to-cheek. It’s a shade that’s suitable to just about any skin tone and also one that’s easy to match with just about any other colour in the rainbow. It’s neutral, but nowhere near boring – and that’s perhaps what gives this trend its appeal.
Glad in plaid
It seems that plaid has worked its way into the classics hall of fame. Next to leather and denim, plaid stands out as an all-around timeless addition to any wardrobe. Casually, plaid functions as a main piece, while professionally plaid works great to accent a suit. Pay homage to plaid and sport it this fall 2014 season.
On that sports game
A little bit of this and a little bit of sportswear. That athletic-like wear has made its way into the mainstream fashion scene is just to our liking. And as for camo, though unlike plaid it seems to have waxed and waned throughout fashion history, its comeback is never without praise. Plus, it’s sometimes cool to play a pretend solider, right?
Yet another ode to that easy-livin’ life. The loafer is an effortless and comfortable way to incorporate a trendy item into your everyday wardrobe. It works well with khakis, jeans and just about everything in between. Check out Call it Spring’s BUZIG.
