Menswear: AW15 Outerwear Trends

I don’t usually write pieces on menswear as I have had little knowledge or experience in searching for menswear trends and styles, however after working with a menswear team recently I have gained some tips on what will be big trends this Autumn/Winter. In terms of outerwear, jackets and coats are something to invest money in and these pieces I have found (although a little pricey!) I’m sure will be on the highstreets in different varieties.

Sandro 

This store is amazing for men’s outerwear as it provides cool and chic styles with twists on old favorites. Here are a few of the key pieces from Sandro Paris.

Weapon Jacket £845 – Removable fur and shearling collars are big this season and leather biker jackets are a must-have.

Mods Parka £685 – Parka coats are huge this season and are always popular for those chilly months! I love how Sandro have paired such a casual styled coats with a sharp skinny suit to create a cool mod look.

Apollo Coat £475 – Single breasted straight coat is great for a formal look and the camel colour is very popular on the catwalks.

All Saints 

Great for a little more affordable style, this store provides great vintage feel pieces with washed out denim creating the real rocknroll style All Saints exhibits.

Men's Eucild Denim Jacket (Grey) - product_image_alt_text_2

Eucild Denim Jacket £108 – This raw aesthetic denim jacket has slim line panelling for something a little more fitted and although denim jackets are more toward the summer season, this grey washed out dye is great for the transition into Autumn.

Men's Bedford Shearling Jacket (Sand) - product_image_alt_text_2

Bedford Shearling jacket £798 – This luxury jacket is made from British merino sheepskin (hence the price!), but is well worth the price tag for a fab aviator style jacket which has been a big trend by designers, plus that sheepskin will keep you cosy on those frosty mornings.

Men's Halber Suede Jacket (Anthracite) -

Halber Suede Jacket £328 – Suede was huge in Spring/Summer and seems to be moving into Autumn Winter as well! This simple trucker jacket is a great staple piece to layer over dark patterned shirts and tops with some skinny jeans and boots.

The Kooples 

The Kooples is perfect at creating effortlessly cool styles with a mix of crisp shirt tailoring and monochrome shades of outerwear.

Houndstooth detail Biker jacket £645 – A biker jacket reinvented with Houndstooth detail which creates an individual and quirky take on a classic.

Lightdown Jacket with Leather Sleeves £545 – Leather details is something which many designers are incorporating into their coats and jackets for a more chic and young look. This works perfectly on this quilted jacket as it makes the practical winter puffer jacket trendy.

Straight Coat in Grey £475 – This straight coat, once again has made use of leather detail in the stand up collar and is a great alternative to the smarter outerwear you may need for work. It is versatile and can be worn formally or informally depending on occasion, simply pair with a suit or skinnies and a button down check shirt for a casual cool look.
