BLAZER-SHARP

Is there anything they can’t do? As one of the most hardworking styles in a man’s wardrobe, it’s no surprise that we’re seeing a resurgence of these sartorial saviors. While a good blazer is perfect for fall/winter, the right style can be worn across all seasons. Demonstrated by the likes of Officine Générale, Zegna, Kenzo and many more, it can be dressed up with a brushed cotton shirt or dressed down with fine knitwear. Layer yours under a coat as the temperature drops.

RICH KNITS

Knitwear has never looked or felt more luxurious than now. Look to Missoni and Valentino for truly elevated versions that prove sweaters, roll-necks and cardigans need never be drab. Experiment with cashmere in bold colors, or invest in woven styles with rich, bold textures. Invest in materials that feel as good as they look for ultimate long-term pay-off. When it comes to styling, there is no need to choose between comfort and style. Try layering a cardigan over a turtleneck or wear a jumper over a shirt for a preppy twist. Just remember, this year the more luxurious the better.

ANKLE-HIGH STYLE

We know what you’re thinking, ‘when are boots not a fall/winter hero?’ However, this season’s take on the humble ankle boot takes it to new heights. Acne Studios, Maison Margiela and Grenson are just a few designers celebrating this enduring style by focusing on fine details. Think of track soles, chain embellishments and delicious caramel-colored suede. Don’t let these forever favorites fade into the background; highlight them by tucking your pant leg inside or pairing them with a cropped style — they’ve earned their moment in the spotlight, after all.
