Trendy Key Pieces for Men Fall & Winter 2008/2009
For the fashionable ‘fellas,' here is a newsflash: There is a definite return to tailoring and sophistication set for the 2008/09 fall and winter season.
~It looks like plaid anything is one of the flavors of the season for men. It's a plaid shirt, a plaid sports coat, plaid vest or a plaid suit.
However, beware: Plaid can be a dangerous way to go. To look tasteful, the plaid should be small, fine and tone on tone. The broad and sometimes garish checkered fabrics do not look good on anyone, especially in suits and coats. So leave the tartan where it belongs, on Scottish kilts. If you're a business suit-wearing type of guy, pair it with that fine plaid shirt and also a trimmer and sleeker tie.
~Winter wear this coming winter is from the traditional woolen blazer to the pea coat in charcoal, black or dark navy. Even though the cuts are kind of form fitting with narrow set in sleeves sleeves, opt for a well-sized and good fitting jacket, which will work perfectly for all body builds. That way you'll be able to wear it over the layered shirt and V-necked vest or sweater. The big man should stay away from the ‘puff' vests and the short mock bomber style jackets, both are worn very short and, you guessed it, puffy; definitely unflattering to most.
~For the rugged, cozy and comfortable look, a fine-wale corduroy sport shirt layered over a thin mock or turtleneck can take you easily from the casual work place to the hockey game or movie and pizza date.
~Jeans are always in style, however this year's jeans styles are more form fitting and straight cut. Stick to dark blues paired with a dress shirt layered with a well sized, slightly loose in the tummy low V-neck sweater for that classic and casual look.
~Suede brogue shoes and matching belt will finish off the sophisticated look that can go with dress pants, casual chinos or jeans.
The most important factor to remember when setting up your wardrobe is that: Whether you're average sized, really tall and slender, tall and wide, or just wide, if you feel good in what you wear, you will give off an assured persona at work and play.
With other words proper fitting clothes are the key. They have the effect of boosting confidence at work and in your personal life.
