Style Pilot Picks the Best Menswear Trends for Autumn Winter ’13

As autumn creeps in and the weather turns noticeably cooler, you’ll find yourself reaching for last year’s coat and needing a few more layers,so to kick start your shopping list, our experts at Style Pilot have selected the key items you need to nail this season’s trends.

Check It.

Every man should have a check shirt in his wardrobe. It’s an essential item that can be worn in multiple ways, comes in nearly every colour and with varying size checks. This season large, oversized checks are in order and were seen on button down shirts, suit jackets and statement coats. Tartan in particular was popular across collections and is an easy, wearable trend for autumn/winter, whether you go for a classic scarf or something more adventurous like a shirt or blazer.

Colour Combinations

Teal green iswithout doubt one of thekey colours for autumn/winter alongside berry red, grey and orange, especially when worn head-to-toein tonal colour combinations. Many designers layered individual items together in similar shades of one colour to create this easy look. The trick to this trend is dressing like you mean it and choosing colours that work together but not necessarily match exactly. Try this with coloured trousers or chinos, a shirt and single breasted blazer. Or for a more casual take on this trend, look for coloured jeans with shirts and crew neck jumpers.

The Bomber Jacket

This trend pretty much carries on from its huge success in summer. The bomber jacket represented the sports influenced trend seen at London Collections: Men (men’s fashion week held in the capital) and continues to feature in autumn collections everywhere. This time though, the jacket is slightly shorter with a slimmer fit for a more grown up look that’s less ‘college football’. This trend is the one for the weekend to wear with jeans and a simple t-shirt.
