The Great Adventurer – Menswear trends for AW12

Standard

If you consider yourself a little bit of an explorer, you will find yourself wearing menswear trends for this AW easily, as one of the main looks for the 2nd half of the year is a look of a stylish outwear adventurer.

Functional casual layers teamed with practical quilted gilets are the key this season. Think: outwear, think: chunky knits (an absolute must have this fall!), think: fabric blocking. We are talking: mixing, tweed, wool, leather & even fur. Ok maybe the last option is going a little bit too fur (ahem – too far I mean). Patterns cover everything from check through a little bit of folk, to key in this trend – fresh fell of Scandinavia.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match, that way you will add a casual feel to your outfit. Wear your knit over the shirt (both can have different patterns – this season forget about plain shirts) or wear a jumper under a tweed jacket. Both sets will make you stand out from the crowd, and yes, I mean it in a good way. Combine it with some heavy boots, and for the brave ones – with accessories.

When it comes to out-wear, think: parkas, think: puffer jackets. The first, ideally with fur hood and leather elbow patches, is a more classic choice, while the second option will add a modern feel to your look. A knitted shawl will perfectly finish complete your outfit, and what’s most important – will keep you warm! So hey, great adventurer – seems like you are ready for both – streets of the city & the ski slopes!
