Menswear Fall/Winter 2014 Trend Report - Quilted Outerwear

Fall/Winter 2014 Trend Report.

Quilted Outerwear.

Puffy, quilted coats will be back in style this fall and winter. With geometric patterns and quilted elements, winter jackets will be down-filled or slimmer versions of the puffer coats, it might come in new shapes and colours this season, but ultimately the principle remains the same: it’s designed to keep you warm, dry and effortlessly stylish.

Choose a style that is as streamlined as possible to avoid looking like a marshmallow by pairing it with slim-fitting jeans and streamlined shoes.

Runway Ready?

Well…Close Enough

In celebration of fashion week I’ve put together an outfit inspired by one of my favorite looks from last season. I wanted to put my own spin on the look below from Dsquared2’s Fall 2014 runway show so I mimicked the mixed material bomber with a wool/leather combo varsity jacket and also chose to do a loose, pleated trouser like the one seen here. I finished off the outfit with a similar boot and beanie and added a pop of white with the socks to give it my own personal touch. I’ve found almost all the items for my outfit on Zappos which actually sells clothing from 13 designers presenting during this season’s New York Fashion Week. So what do you think? Close enough, eh?

White in winter? YES!

White was a huge presence on fall runways, with designers showcasing head-to-toe looks using modern separates in varying shades of stark, ivory, and cream.

Despite hackneyed fashion “rules,” winter-white shoes are also continuing their momentum, so expect to see plenty of trainers in white.
