Menswear trends for Fall 2015 are plush. Forget the sharp power looks and uber-fitted styles of the past. This year’s looks are cozy. Look for burgundy, jewel tones, and not much in the way of ties, but a serious introduction of the jogger silhouette. A glance back at the ’70s—the heyday of the leisure suit—and a laser-like focus on futuristic pairings mean business and pleasure come together for this season’s styles like never before
Burgundy is back. Head to toe, as deep as you can go, the favorite shade of 1970s menswear is now your go-to color for a genuinely trendy suit today. Other saturated hues like forest green and sapphire are on the scene, too, but nothing beats burgundy this fall. A classic cut like the Paisley & Gray Plain Weave Blazer can ease you into the boldness of the tone.
Keep the coziness real with a sweater under your suit this season. Collars and ties might have their place here and there, but the suit of the moment pairs perfectly with a sweater. If you need something around your neck, a sash tie is on point with the ’70s vibe, but a luxe cashmere crew neck gets the job done this year. The JT Cashmere lets you experiment with some of those bright jewel colors, too.
Have all your dreams come true? Yes, they have. You have official sartorial permission to wear sweatpants with your suit. Keep it classy and super-current by matching your color and fabric exactly, like with Theory’s Pier Heathered-Knit Sweatpants and paired blazer. Only the most tailored joggers will do for this look, but they definitely do. This is the ultimate in fashion-forward menswear—the pinnacle of the season’s trends.
Add a dash of leopard print to your suit. You can play it anywhere from safe to daring with a scarf, a pocket square, or even a crew neck under a jacket. The trend goes modern by allowing for any color story you like. Classic gold and black give way to crazy colors like cobalt and ruby, but you can stay subtle with black on white or a sophisticated black on black, like on these Jimmy Choo Sloane Men’s Leopard-Print Loafers. This print is on the prowl for work or play and ready to make the most of the season.
