Falling for Fall Fashion: for the In Style Man!

BannerI promised you I would, and now here it is. I am showing you the upcoming season trends…for men!! Fall is right around the corner and with the cold weather soon approaching us, we want to make sure everyone is nice and cozy. There is nothing better than a well dressed man, and even though it is lovely to see the trim and fit bods on the beach…it is time to cover up. Why not cover up in style?

As much as I love to scroll through board after board for style pertaining to women (finding my favourite Fall looks), I also love to pin men’s clothing as well! If a guy has style, it makes him that much more attractive! It’s not overly hard to dress well when you are a guy – if you stick to the classics, that is. Today, I want to show you some of my favourite Fall trends for the men!

I looked through some dapper fella’s Instagram accounts, catalogs, blogs, and – of course – Pinterest, in order to bring you these fab, masculine trends in this post:

Sweater Under Blazer . I have a thing for layers. Begin with an oxford, put on a sweater, then add a blazer on top? Perfecto! Looks chic, classic and so put together. Although the look works without the blazer (more casual), adding that extra layer on top steps it up a notch. In order to prevent the bunchy look,  it is best to wear a thinner, cotton blend sweater as opposed to a bulky wool sweater (that would be a tight fit!).

  

Khaki pants. The colour khaki is probably my favourite on guys (in addition to jeans). I think it such a great alternative, especially for Fall. Although there are jeans, and many different shades of denim to choose from…khaki proves to be such a different look! It used to be that khakis were thrown on for church or Sunday dinner with the grandparents, but now, they are making a style statement and there are more than a few men wearing this look, and completely rocking it.

     

Plaid scarves. When the chilly weather rolls in, it’s best to bundle up! So why not bundle up with a plaid scarf? Plaid screams Fall (I am a tad obsessed with plaid…) and these scarves below are perfect for the upcoming Autumn season. The ideal way to wear a scarf like this is draped over the neck. You don’t have to toss it over the shoulder (although some men can really work that style). This accessory really doesn’t need to be styled, just wearing it makes the look that much more put together.

  

Leather Jackets. When have leather jackets not been in trend? This is such a timeless piece (for men and women). It gives a tough vibe, yet still looks completely chic. Specifically for this Fall, we are seeing a lot of earth tones in the leather. My personal favourite is a brown leather jacket (any shade of brown will do). Black is nice as well, but brown is soft and brings out the undertones in the existing summer sun tans. Additionally, brown goes with a lot of different Fall colours and makes for a great addition to Fall colour palettes.

    

I am loving these Fall trends for men…they just look so good!! I fall for Fall trends every year, but I am falling hard for these beautifully dressed men…well the trends…I’m falling for the trends (duh!). Make sure you check out my men’s fashion Pinterest board, called “Men.” for more drool-worthy looks.

Fall Colour Palette: Olive, Camel and Wine

bannerSo I have been talking a lot about the upcoming and fast approaching Fall season!! Not that I would ever rush the heat away, but there is something that is just making me too excited for wearing cable knits and watching a my university team play football every Saturday afternoon. I can almost smell the crisp Thanksgiving air…okay, I may be getting a tad off track!

Fall is my favourite season, and when August rolls around, I go into wardrobe planning mode. I map out what the trends are, I take a good, hard look at my closet and I go pin-crazy! Well, today I want to talk about this season’s colour palette. Mainly because I want to talk about all these cute and fun trends, but also because I am absolutely giddy over these colours!! They are so unique and look so amazing together, that I just can’t stand it.

Olive Green – this colour is high and trend this season, but I have always been a huge fan of this colour. This is apart of the same colour family as military green…and (stretching it a bit) even a dark green khaki colour. But olive truly is the perfect shade. I love how it reps the earthy tones, it totally brings out the Fall vibes and it really goes with a lot of the colours of the Fall season! It is right in style and I am totally on board!!

    

Wine – I actually just learned the actual colour word for this amazing colour! I used to call it maroon or burgandy, but if you think about it, calling this colour “wine” is completely suitable. Burgandy can have a brown undertone to it and Maroon has more of a red undertone – wine encompasses brown, red and purple all in one…making for this dark moody Fall shade! I just looove it!!

    

Camel – this may just be the colour of the season!! Camel is so easy to combine with other colours. It is absolutely a neutral and can add the perfect touch to an outfit. Not only does this colour work in an accessory, it even works as the base of the outfit. A large, oversized camel coloured sweater paired with wine accessories is the perfect combo! There is really so much you can do with this colour, which is why it is a staple this season.

    

Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to be showcasing my picks for each of these colours…so stay tuned for that!! It’s sad but summer is slipping away and Fall will takeover in full swing…can’t say I don’t want the summer to stay…but I am almost ready for Fall (a few more items to pick up) and I have to say, it is going to be a stylish season!!

How do you feel about these three colour staples? What are you envisioning for this upcoming Fall season? Let me know in the comments below!!
