So after a momentary rekindling of summer, winter or at least autumn is here. The clocks will be changing and this means, long seemingly never ending nights for the next six months. It is also a sign that temperatures are going to start dropping and this means fashion will be adapting.
Autumn and winter wear this season is drawing inspiration from the past, notably 1950s Americana as well as military-style fashions from the 1930s and men of the gentry and countryside from the 1920s. Accessories are going to play an important role, so grab a flat cap and get shopping.
Things, fashion wise can get a bit tricky when it comes to mens jumper though. Its easy to buy a cool bomber jacket, a new hat or some worker boots to transform your look, but what about when youre inside, needing to prove you have your finger firmly on the fashion pulse?
The thing to remember this season, as far as mens jumpers go, is knitwear. Chunky knits, particularly cable-knit are the hottest item to wear under your jacket this winter. Far from looking like something your Nans knitted, the latest knitwear is trendy, well-styled an oozes effortless masculinity.
If you are a shirt and skinny jeans kind of guy, be daring and wear a patterned round neck jumper. This pumps up the geek chic and keeps you warm; youre mum would be proud.
If youre more of a casual cool man, and prefer baggy jeans and trainers to tight fitting jeans and boots, look for the grandad style v-neck mens jumpers. These arent as thick and look great with a printed t-shirt underneath. If youre proud of your body, then a ribbed jumper will show it off to the ladies without being too in your face.
Another key trend is the fashion meets sport look. Hoodies and crew neck mens jumpers are going to be popular casual wear this winter. To be most on trend, look for Americana themed tops, such as printed mens jumpers, and baseball-style hoodies.
Colour wise, grey and black are everywhere, but if you want to brighten up those dull wintery days, then do so in muted tones of blue, red and green. Take inspiration from the extreme sports real such as snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing. Just because it looks like sports wear, doesnt mean it cant be spruced up with some jeans, a bomber jacket and some chunky military boots.
