As 2015 is coming to a close, we’ve just about seen every tragic trend known to man in the last decade. From skinny jeans to man leggings, man bags and Muns (man buns]. We’ve all soon or later adapted these into our own styles, as it’s become acceptable as a 21st century modern gentlemen. The sports luxe trend is no news shocker to this day, inspiring the everyday hipsters to the street style fashionisters at fashion week. Armani Exchange has a wide range this AW15 Season, incorporating the everyday winter essentials with modernised twists. I’ve selected my favourite key pieces, easily styled to mix and match your existing wardrobe palette. Combining your everyday casual attires with the sporty fashionable trainer, which is no surprise to the morning business man commuter.
Exposed Knees is nothing new, even the most dapper instagram influencers are rocking this trend. My denim jeans has appear to have a real accident over the years, as the distressed fabric exposed more skin every time I sit down. Simply take a scissor to the trousers, with an estimate of where you’re knees are of course. Distress the denim and the edgy style knees will make more contact with the winter air. For those that think Black is boring, infuse textures, coordinated tones like Greys and navy, finished with and personalised styles to differ from the guy next door.
From the classic Varsity Jackets, stripes and sneakers, track pants and hoodies you can almost say we woke up like this; sniping out to the groceries. There is a youthful approach this the gentleman wearing this kind of style, fun and fresh. The horizontal 3 tone stripes are perfect for keeping the body silhouette in place, combiningg the leather sleeves with the neoprene body. As for the trousers, the Vertical panelling elongates the legs and adds an geometric illusion when moving. Low cut ankles should be on everyones radar, exposing a little bit of the skin or socks if you fancy, nicely tailored for low top sneakers.
For the ultimate winter coat this season, the degraded Wool Blend coat. The fusion of outerwear tailoring and modernised with the gradient 50 shades of grey attire. Long tailored coats are an investment for life, as you can see the diversity of the sports luxe style to the business gentleman. Playing with the classic attires and changing styles with just one statement coat can be unpredictable from one day to the next. It just all depends on the occasion, effort of styling in the morning and your mood on the day.
