What A Gent’s Wearing: The Coat & Cardigan Combination


Winter styling often requires combining multiple styles to create layered designs that look dapper and stylish. With one of the top colours in men’s fashion for this winter season being blue, we’ve put together an outfit for Autumn/Winter using navy as the main focus. This look is one that should keep you out of the cold and in fashion this winter season.

The main focus of this piece is the long, navy herringbone coat which elongates the figure whilst its slim cut helps frame the shoulders and waist. This is then complimented by the layering of a simple and thin grey cardigan over a plain white shirt, which adds subtle layers of contrast the torso area and provides definition against the navy coat. The use of black, slim-fit trousers adds elegance to the look and helps maintain the slimming shape. Finally, the outfit is finished with a dark brown belt and boots that helps the overall look feel a little more rugged and able to withstand the winter weather.
