What you wear can say a lot about you; fashion is exciting because it’s an outward expression of who you are. What you wear lets other people know a slither of your personality; what music you listen to or what you do for a living. Fashion can also inspire confidence and attraction. Half the fun of style is the mystery and the rest is theatre. You can dress outside of your means, in costume, or as the man you one day hope to become, giving yourself an opportunity to experience luxury and opulence with textiles and accessories. Whatever you decide, enjoy yourself. Fashion was never meant to be taken seriously.

So the movie bombed. That doesn’t mean you can’t rock 50 shades of grey with style. Grey is the perfect color as it’s neither too formal or too casual. It’s versatility works well in most fabrics and cuts. You can just as easily rock a grey sweater as you can a grey suit or a grey blazer. The trick to wearing all one color is to add as many shades as possible, preferably with the lightest hue highest, working to the low dark hues at your feet.

Fall screams comfort but don’t get caught in the rain without this season’s must-have jacket. Choose from single or double breasted or a trenchcoat design, the choice is up to you, but turn up the heat by picking a wool fabric. This durable fabric is perfect for the seasonal change and looks fantastic in grey! Keep patterns plain for a modern look or choose classics such as herringbone. Knee-length is the most flattering fit for most men and will slim your waist.

Good news if you live in Boston…or the arctic! Under your wool coat, knitted sweaters are trending. Invest in a designer brand to avoid scratchy blends reminiscent of private schools.
