How To Style A Denim Jacket In Winter – Layering Tips

Denim Jacket In Winter - Men's Style Tips

Have you ever thought about wearing a jacket in the Autumn or Winter? For me, this is a big no-no. I have always considered the denim jacket a Summer item, or transitioning from Spring to Summer. Jean jackets are lightweight, and great for throwing over a tee in the Summer.

But what if you want to wear one in the Winter? Can you wear a denim jacket in Winter? Are they style rules, and how can you style it?

One word – Layering.

Check out the whole outfit below and see how I’ve styled it.

Men's Style: Open Shirt With T-Shirt Combinations

Hey guys I hope you are well! Summer is nearing the end, so I thought it was about time I shared this outfit idea, the Shirt and T-Shirt combination. A really simple style to pull off, which combines a couple of simple items and looks really great this season, without too much effort.

For this look I’ve gone all Uniqlo. You may remember a while back I bought these at Uniqlo, that is the blue linen shirt, plain white T-shirt and these cream chinos.

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2018]

How To Style Sweat Shorts

UPDATED FOR 2018

Are you looking for some casual shorts which are the ultimate in comfort, which you can wear in or out of the house? Sweat Shorts are what you’re probably looking for, and they’re a great choice to wear when the weather gets warm in the Summer.

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Bum Bags Are Back! The Summer 2018 Trend

Bum Bags On Trend In 2018

Just when you thought you’d missed out, bum bags are back in fashion in 2018!

If you are 25 years old or under, then you can be forgiven if you don’t know what a bum bag is, but if you’re like me, and grew up with 90’s fashion trends, then you’ll know all about them, and probably had one, if not a few.

The bum bag was quite iconic, used by many mostly for holidays and festivals, and used to a lesser extend as a general bag to carry around small items for daily use. However times have changed, we carry around a lot of small things, and can occasionally need something to carry them in. From phones to cameras and other tech devices, there’s so much we carry.

If you’re a girl you may get a small bag, but guys tend not to use a bag unless they want to carry around larger items, such as tablets or laptops. So they’re not only practical, but they’ve come into fashion, and love them or hate them, we’ll probably be seeing more and more this season.

Men's Floral Shirt Trend - Best Of This Summer

The hot weather makes me think of a couple of things, and when it comes to fashion one of those is floral shirts. I love the classic, solid, staple colour shirts you wear for most of the year, but if you want to make a statement in the warmer months, jumping on the printed shirt trend is the way to do it.

If you’re looking for tips on how to style a floral shirt, advice on where to shop for them or are just looking for some inspiration, you can sit back and read on 🙂

Yellow Sweatshirt Fashion Trend: Autumn 2017

Yellow Fashion Trend For Autumn 2017

Have you noticed how much yellow is around right now!?

I love the yellow fashion trend for Autumn. It’s not a particular colour which is synonymous for Autumn, but it’s one which I have noticed over the past several weeks, and it’s one I really like. Now the colder weather is here it’s time to wrap up and layer up, and what better way than with sweatshirts!

There are so many different yellow shades and tones, from mustard to bright yellow and a more pastel, pale yellow, which is my favourite. I have spotted this trend, but there’s actually not a lot of choice out there. My preference to sweats these days is sweatshirts over hoodies, but there’s still a lot of hoodies which menswear brands are releasing. Sweatshirts have regained popularity in the past year or so, and you can check out my sweatshirt guide for everything you need to know about sweats and how to style them.

hawaiian shirts fatboy slim style

Aloha!

What are your thought on Hawaiian shirts? Just a gimmick, or are these loud shirts actually stylish? I have to say that I am starting to like them, they are another item to have in your wardrobe that you can pull out every now and then to give yourself some individuality in a world where a lot of guys are wearing the same things this summer. If you’re looking for a men’s fashion trend which may not be your usual style, the Hawaiian shirt could be something to consider to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Men’s Fashion Trends 2017: Pink For Spring

Friday, 24th March, 2017

Pink Sweatshirt For Men

Spring has arrived, and with it, it’s brought a new fashion trend. Several weeks ago I read that the pantone colour of the year 2017 was green, specifically a green they call Greenery, which is quite a dirty, mid-to-light green, quite a solid colour. There’s been lots of fashion produced in this colour for this season too, as well as other shades of green, signalling it could be big for Spring, but for me, it’s not. The big trend for Spring, at least the first half, is pink!

Specifically a light or pale pink. I’ve seen a couple of pieces of clothing and fashion in this colour, I already own a few bits and pieces too, and I love it. A really deep or bold pink can be hard to wear and difficult to pull off, with the colour being seen as a feminine option usually. Pale shades are synonymous with Springtime, with grey, white, beige, red, blue, green and yellow all being worn, you can add pink to that list too.

Today’s Style – Camel Overcoat With Black Knit

Tuesday, 17th January, 2017

Doing The Camel Overcoat Trend

Coat – ASOS | Jeans – Armani Black | Cashmere Black Knit | Kurt Geiger Brogues | Barbour Scarf

You should know about one of the biggest trends of the Winter if you’ve been reading my blog, it is of course the Camel Overcoat Trend, and I decided it’s one which I cannot let pass by, so I got myself a coat!

It’s actually a long story, I had my eye on a Jaeger coat for a while, it was finally in the sale just before Christmas, I ordered it and was excited for it to come…Then on the delivery day Jaeger decided to email me and let me know that actually they had no stock and could not deliver it. I was disappointed, and then it got worse; They mysteriously go the jacket back in stock in my size, however it was now at full price! Hmmm…

Anyway my search went on, and although these camel overcoats look quite similar, there are a few small differences in them, and as you’ll know it’s all in the details. First of all I wanted a placket which had the buttons on show, the Jaeger one actually had a hidden placket but I was going to go ahead with that one as it was good in other ways. Secondly I wanted it to be camel colour (obviously!) and also have pockets which were vertical and not slanted; I prefer these on trousers too so that nothing falls out. I wanted a bit of a lapel collar, and a chest pocket would be great too. I wanted mostly wool composition, which usually signifies better quality, single breasted and a vented back. I finally found one which I loved at ASOS, and so I got it!

I think the fit is good which is always important, and it’s definitely something which I’ll be wearing throughout the Winter as a Winter coat when I need a more smart option as opposed to my Canada Goose.

I styled the coat with an all black outfit which included a black cashmere knit and black Armani jeans, along with a pair of brown Kurt Geiger brogues and my scarf is Made In Scotland from Barbour.

The Camel Overcoat – Men’s Fashion Trend For Autumn & Winter

Men's Fashion Trends - The Camel Overcoat

To be perfectly honest I was never a fan of the overcoat. There’s always been the need and love for a good Winter coat, denim jackets and bombers are always good for milder weather, and I finally joined the suede and leather crew a couple of years ago when I started buying those jackets and coats too. It didn’t feel like an overcoat had much of a place in my wardrobe, but as my style has evolved, and as I’ve learned more and more, and appreciated fashion more and more, I’ve finally started to get on board with the overcoat.

I now love the overcoat, it’s a simple garment made for Autumn and Winter which will keep you warm, looking stylish and can be paired with almost any clothing in your wardrobe.

Let’s take a look at all the characteristics of this piece of fashion, including everything you need to know, and a buyers guide showcasing the best overcoats you can buy this season.
