HOW TO WEAR: NEW-SEASON LAYERING
By Spencer Cain, 4 November 2018
Just because the temps are dropping, doesn't mean it's time to sacrifice your steez, right? Right. While it may seem like a daunting task that could leave you looking like Joey from Friends (although according to Balenciaga, that's not such a bad thing), becoming a master layer player isn't as hard as it looks. In order to assist you with this tricky transitional time, here's how to pile on the layers right now...
If there's an essential piece for any gentleman's wardrobe during chilly days, it's got to be the trench coat. Quite frankly, they elevate any 'fit, so wear over your favourite cropped trousers and a white shirt for an instant hit.
One of the trickiest struggles of the season is juggling the varying levels of heat (freezing outside, boiling on the train). The perfect foundation is a classic white tee and the adidas trackies we've all been living in. The next step? A fresh bomber jacket.
But if you need something a little on the warmer side, a chambray shirt is an ideal middle piece and provides an immediate dose of chill. Don a pair of colourful shades for added retro vibes.
Some days call for a slicker approach (read: if a fancy drinks situation is on the cards after work). Instead of traditional tailoring, bring on the pattern clashing and mix stripes and checks.
