Formal wear is the luxury choice for the modern gentleman and winters is a good time to mix & match and play with the formal look. Keep the woolen trousers, crisp shirt, tie and lace ups; replace the outer layer with something more casual- jacket. We promise you‘ll still be the sharpest guy in the room- ready for meeting or a presentation! Here are some options on how to make jackets part of your formals:
Well, we will not suggest you to wear a floral or printed bomber for office! Go for subtle colors like greys or navy blue that maintains the dapper look. Key is to stick to minimal collar and cuffs and zippers should blend in. Quilted bomber jacket will be high on functionality and will make the look sophisticated.
Versatile- Denims Jackets
You denim jacket is not just for the weekend brunch or outing. The good news is you can add your denim strategically in formal wear too. Opt for solid black, blues and you won’t go wrong. Layer them over your shirt with a solid color tie and under a raincoat or canvas jacket. This look is easy to carry and made to flatter.
Vintage-Polyester Padded Jacket
Embellishments, shiny material or bright colors of jackets are a big no-no! Navy and black are the safest colors to match and carry. Apart from keeping you warm, polyester padded jackets will give a more aesthetic rugged look. Teaming the jacket with woolen grey trousers and oxfords will keep your outfit sharp.
Clean Cut- Leather Biker
This is a bit tricky but great look to carry. Aim to purchase your jacket in neutral, solid black to avoid limiting what you can match it with. We suggest you to go monochrome. Wear a crisp men shirts, narrow black tie, straight fit black trousers, black lace ups and black jacket. Superiority is a cinch with this elegant ensemble.
Stylish-Spread Collar Jacket
A trend of 2016 summer spring runways, spread collar men jackets paired with a slim pair of trousers, a white/sky blue shirt and a good pair of brogues will ace the look. It is much easier matching a navy blue spread collar jacket than it would be a green one in a checkered pattern. You can add a scarf if you want a switch from classic commuter to modern look.
Carrying a jacket in formal wear is great way to build flexibility in wardrobes. However, choosing the right color, size, pattern and fabric is very important. A perfect combination of these features hits the level of formality you looking for. Thumbs up all around!
