Basics are a man’s best friend.
Boys, it’s time to start doing something other than a black on black fit with a white sneaker. As we pull up into the cooler months, maybe this year we can get a little more experimental. Take a swing at other neutral tones, dress for the season! Beige is ok but what about switching it for burgundy? The last few years we were blessed with Khaki, and well we can all agree we are massive fans.
Turtlenecks are back!
I’ll admit, I used to hate these things, but they’ve taken to me like a new form of track pants on a cold day. Whether it’s a roll-neck or, this winter it’s all about blocks of colour or a basic tone. Turtlenecks provide an array of options for any occasion. So, guys, any basic turtleneck can be paired with a blazer, coat or jacket but be wary of colour coordination! Sites like Real Men Real Style are a great way to get that co-ord we’re all looking for especially for the upcoming winter!
As winter rolls in, it’s time to hang up the linen and bring out the sweaters! There’s nothing better than throwing on your favourite sweater and heading to brunch. A sweater never seemed to go out of season, I’ve been wearing the same ones I bought years ago just adding a different pant or accessory. 2019 seems to be the year of bold and colour-block. Being bold is the new norm so guys it’s time to shake it up this winter. For example; pairing a bold red with a black jean & black boot to truly stand out in the crowd!
Sweaters can be tricky sometimes though because the Australian climate can’t seem to make its mind up sometimes. In terms of textiles, there’s a tonne to choose from! A personal favourite of mine is a cable-knit giving off that bulky, preppy vibe.
This winter’s all about layering strategically and expression through colour. Winter doesn’t have to be gloomy in 2019!
