Key Men’s Fashion Trends to Follow This Fall

men's fashion

Fall is here and it is a perfect time to reorganize and update our wardrobes with some new trendy pieces. For men, this means adding sweaters, scarves and coats to their wardrobes. This season, many classics are back, including roll-necks, tactile fabrics and quilted jackets. If you are looking for some timeless staples, here are some musts to update your look. But, if you are searching for women’s fashion trends, check this post here.

MOSS GREEN

Rich, deep, mossy green was one of the most popular shade on the catwalks for Fall/Winter 2017, applied to everything from streetwear to suiting. The best part about this color is that works perfectly on all skin tones. Plus, this color works great in almost every outfit, as it breaks up grey, navy and black and adds a touch of daringness. Olive shade is more common for street-wear, while moss green when paired with black has a smarter appeal.

ROLL-NECKS

In a rainbow of colors, styles, thicknesses and patterns, roll necks were a huge hit on the runways. However, if you are not sure how to follow this fashion trend, we suggest you to invest in two styles: a charcoal or camel design, so that you can slip them under your suits, and a thick knit to wear with your favorite cord trousers.

QUILTED JACKET

This type of jackets are very trendy, so make sure to update your look with such a jacket as soon as possible. You can find them in a quite a few versions: quilted blazers, quilted moto jackets and quilted bombers in classic shades of khaki green, navy, grey and black. For a smart-casual look, pair an olive jacket with a gingham shirt, slim-leg jeans and desert boots.

TACTILE FABRICS

Tactile fabrics like corduroy and herringbone are here to stay. They will make autumn-winter 2017 as good as it does to look at. You can choose to wear a corduroy suit, with a fuller silhouette and a slight rise on the trouser. Follow this trend by adding one or two textured pieces to your combination. Navy, green, or any other color from the subtle color palette will fit perfectly to any outfit.

STATEMENT KNITWEAR

Knitwear with logos and patterns are having a moment. And trust us, making a statement with your top is less risky than patterned trousers. The key with statement knitwear is making sure that your knitwear cloth gets heard. The easiest way to make an impression with your dramatic piece is to pair it with neutral staples.

ALL-CAMEL EVERYTHING

This fall, you can't go wrong with a camel outfit. We worn camel jackets, but this season the way to style it is from head to toe. For maximum impact, try to mix different camel shades and patterns. If you don't like wearing all camel, you can break it up with cream or navy.

Fall Skincare Tips

Going, going, gone; yes, summer is officially over and there’s a new but familiar and wonderful season that you should not welcome unprepared. You may have already made some changes and just as there are new colors and fabrics sitting in your closet, your skincare cabinet is also due for a transformation. This is a very important transition and one that should be done with thoughtfulness and care because you’re not only upgrading your skincare game for the fall but also eradicating some of summer’s less than welcome souvenirs. In order to welcome the golden season in style, attention must be paid and steps must be taken, so let’s just jump right into it.

Stop dryness in its tracks

As soon as temperatures drop you’ll notice two things you certainly didn’t sign up for – dry and flaky skin. This is unacceptable and should be nipped in the bud. While heavier moisturizers might have been unwanted during the summer as they do tend to be a bit greasier, they are more than welcome as soon as seasons change. Heavy moisturizer is great but for fall, your best choice is an oil-based moisturizer, and while you’re upgrading, you might want to introduce serum into your skincare routine. The serum is as close to a magic nourishing potion for the skin and we’re all missing out if we’re not using one.

Step up your game

You probably already own a high SPF sunscreen, after all, summer is about fun in the sun, but it’s also about protecting the skin from the harms of UVA and UVB rays. You may, however, still be unaware that skin protection is an all-year-round job as those harmful rays never rest. That is why you need to step up your game, and go for broad or even better, full-spectrum sunscreen that will protect you from both these rays.

Exfoliation ruling the nation

While regular and proper exfoliation, as well as quality purifying face masks, are your friend and ally all year long, you need to ‘hang out’ with them even more as summer fades away. The harsher weather can and is harsh on the skin, so if you want to keep it healthy and plump, those dead cells and flakiness need to go away. Don’t use abrasive exfoliators but go with gentle ones as these won’t cause inflammation and irritation but simply leave your skin cleansed and rejuvenated – with tenderness. Call upon your masks every so often (2-3 times a week) for deep cleansing and pore unclogging. As Japanese gals know skincare best, one of your best mask options is definitely the Detox & Defense Clay Massage & Wash by Pola Skincare, particularly because it can be used as a mask as well as a wash, so you kill two birds with one stone. Your skin will thank you for summoning these friends.

Cut all ties

Yes, you need to cut all ties with summer and that means saying goodbye to some of the less pleasant ‘remains’ of the season. You simply have to admit that, during this carefree time, your dedication to skin care takes a back seat as the fun takes the wheel and more often than not you’re left with the damage. So, take care of those freckles with amazing products designed for fighting them and definitely make sure to find a great non-invasive melasma treatment as you don’t want to put off dealing with this condition. Telltale signs of aging will only get more prominent if ignored, so make sure to undo summer’s doing as soon as it walks out the door.

Last but not least

We need to talk about the lips. They’re often overlooked and in order for them to be plump and kissable (and matte lipstick-ready), they need some love and devotion. While you could purchase a lip exfoliator you’re actually better off making your own. A bit of honey and sugar will do the trick and leave the lips soft and smooth. For everyday care always have a great protective balm with you, and if you have a tendency to switch bags often, keep a balm in every one of them. Harsh weather should not stand in the way of soft kisses.

Pops of Color @CamSatchelCo


You don’t have to spend long in your favorite store to notice that bright colors are hot right now. In fact, the brighter the better seems to be the rule of thumb. Neon is indeed making a bold comeback, but what should you do to add color to your wardrobe without ending up looking like a road sign? Accessorize, of course!

A little goes a long way – Add pops of color without turning into a neon sign

If you want to keep your wardrobe subtle, but don’t want to ignore this trend, remember that a little goes a long way. Keep your regularly scheduled jeans and neutral top, but add a bright, flashy necklace or colorful earrings to make a statement. The beauty of color is that it draws attention, so you don’t have to add a lot to embrace this trend.

Colorful Accessories Make a Difference

So, what pieces can you add to your wardrobe to embrace this trend? Think about the accessories you have and consider how you can spice up the color. A pair of bright feather drop earrings is one option, and even colorful stud earrings or bright hoop earrings can add just enough pizzazz without going overboard. Scarves, belts, necklaces and bracelets can all lend color to an outfit in an understated and trendy way.

As you look for accessories, don’t be afraid to go bright. Handbags are a great way to bring color into a dull wardrobe, and you can pick up several to switch between depending on the color you want for the day. The ever-popular Cambridge satchel now comes in brilliant neon! This is just one example of bright, bold pops of color in accessories, letting you embrace these brilliant hues without going overboard.

Colorful Shoes Making a Comeback

Color is also making a statement in footwear today. A bright pink pair of heels is no longer taboo. In fact, some designers are building an entire wardrobe out of one colorful pair of shoes. This is not a bad idea, either. If you are going to spend a lot of money on shoes, you might as well buy something people will be looking at!

Focus on One Area

Too much color can actually be a bad thing, and it can make you look flashy and unattractive. Health Magazine recommends highlighting one focal point. If it’s your hands, use colorful nail polish and a bright, bold ring or bracelet. If it’s your eyes, tie a colorful scarf around you neck and add a pair of bright earrings. Wherever you choose to add color, make sure you focus the attention of your outfit to that area.

So—go ahead. Add some color to your wardrobe. Just do it a little bit at a time. In this way, you can overcome some of your fears of color while embracing today’s hottest trends.
