Bombers & Bikers
Ever since the likes of Marlon Brando and James Dean made bombers and biker jackets so effortlessly cool, they have played a key role in men's wardrobes. That doesn't look set to change for this season as designers such as Givenchy and AMI Paris rev up the trend with a sleek and smooth update. Embrace the rebel vibes with leather bombers by BOSS and AllSaints, or go denim by Calvin Klein and Levi's. These are perfectly paired with a hooded sweatshirt by The North Face or a loose-fit top and relaxed cargo pants by Banana Republic, offering a more elevated take on this timeless classic. Naturally, keep your footwear rugged with military boots by Browns, then hit the road like you own it!
Complement the bomber and biker jacket trend with a rugged assortment of black accessories such as military boots, big buckle belts and cross-body bags with an urban edge.
Earthy tones are a no-brainer for autumn as Mother Nature indulges us in a colour extravaganza, but one that really stood out on the runways was caramel, the deliciously rich tone that is going to be sweetening all of our seasonal wardrobes. From head-to-toe caramel looks to statement pieces like tan leather jackets by Ted Baker and caramel tailoring by Club Monaco, this trend brings warmth and sophistication in equal measure. Embrace 70s influences with buttery soft suede jackets by Harry Rosen and corduroy tailoring by the likes of BOSS, both of which add depth and texture to your outfits. A chunky caramel roll neck sweater by Banana Republic adds a touch of decadence to a pair of winter chinos and some smart brogues or loafers.
The golden tones of a caramel wardrobe really shine with tonal accessories so opt for bags, leather gloves and belts with tan accents to bring the sweetness to the surface.
From the athletics fields of the 1930s, the tracksuit has been an essential piece of sporting kit but it wasn’t until the 60s when Adidas launched their first style, which was then adopted by hip- hop culture, that the tracksuit became fashion currency. This season sees the classic grey cotton tracksuit become a key part of collections at the likes of Dior, Fendi, and Dolce & Gabbana, injecting an effortless loungewear vibe into everyday style. Jump on the trend with supersoft oversized hoodies by Adidas and Nike, as well as cotton jersey zip-ups in neutral tones by Sandro. Pair the tops with matching joggers with baggy silhouettes before signing off the uber-comfortable look with some oversized sneakers by Reebok.
Dial up the comfort factor with soft-toned accessories to partner the tracksuit trend, with sneakers, textural caps, and neutral tone holdalls adding to the easy-going elegance.
