Autumn/Winter 2013 Favourites – Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials for Men

It’s not getting cold. It is cold.

I wonder if we have a transition with Autumn or go directly into winter. In both cases your wardrobe must be ready; transition from t-shirts to long sleeve shirts and knitwear. Flip flops will be put in a box and boots are coming out. The best thing of climate change is to shop for the new season! :) (Women talking)
I always think Autumn as the comfort season. The only uncomfortable thing is about Autumn is that you have to carry a light jacket or a jumper with you during the day in order to wear it at night. Anyway...

I won’t hesitate to say that this is a list of “essentials” because if you are a guy who cares about his style and look there are some ‘must have’ outfits for this season.

First of all I have to remind you that grey, Emerald green and burgundy are THE colours for AW 2013.



We have seen furs a lot on runways at fashion weeks but if they have asked me before I would have warned them not to.

Top 10 Wardrobe Essentials (that I think a man should have for AW 2013)


1. Trench Coat. – Trench coats are essentials for in-between seasons. The classic trench coat style is a double breasted khaki number, made famous by Burberry. You can also have a leather one to follow the leather madness for this season.  

For  G-Star Garber Black Trenh Coat (£195)www.next.co.uk

2. Boots. I do like hiking boots, biker boots and chukka boots. According to TopMan style lessons, Brogues are still a big trend and work well with trousers of all fits. Loafers look best with slim fit trousers since they are traditionally narrower in style. Wear suede with chinos and bright socks for a contemporary twist.

Brogue Shoes from TopMan: £50
Boots from RiveIsland: £70

3. Chinos and flannel trousers. No matter if you wear short or long boots turn ups or cuffed trousers are the way to display you shoes which are the primary signal of a stylish person. Chinos and flannel trousers are on trend this season; just don’t forget  the turn ups. The colours grey, khaki, and burgundy are the ones you may choose. Also – if you haven’t heard it yet - camo has officially travelled from the runway to the streets. Jeans are timeless for any kind of fashion so feel free for jeans. I also do like pleated trousers but if I were you I would wear them only in black or grey.

Chinos from Next: £20
4. Leather jackets and accessories. Leather is a high trend on this season and it’s not just for jackets. A pair of leather gloves is a must for your wardrobe too. 

Leather Jacket, Thomas Nash @ Debenhams: £90

5. Colourful coats. When it’s cold the only thing people see on streets are coats. Whatever the weather, be fashionably prepared with stylish coats & jackets. That doesn’t mean that you should wear a neon pink one but try to be away from black for a while. Mustard, Navy, and red can be useful for a trendy look. Also burgundy is another runway trend colour for outwear. 
Inspirational looks from runways
6. Braces. I love accessorizing a style. If you don’t accessorise your style, you are just a copycat because accessorize let’s you shout your fashion sense. It’s an easy way for a trendy look. Last year we saw some braces but we will see it more this year. It’s a little bit tricky though. If you don’t use braces correctly you may look silly. My suggestion is braces should be used in a style without a hat. Keep that in mind.


Braces are easy to find almost every store. My favourite ones are mostly from Ralph Lauren.

7. Hats. – If you are not a hat person at least try beanies!  Trapper hats are cool too.

8. Statement carves and snoods. Do not hesitate to go big as blankets or twisted up and knotted tight.





9. No roll neck jumpers. V-neck maybe. Shawl and Crew Neck for sure. Besides the plain jumpers you may also try striped, textured and cable knits. On the other hand monochrome is on trend. Plain jumpers that will fit perfectly over a shirt and tie combo, and will be a stylish addition to wear with a suit. I’ve always liked ‘layer on layer’ trend so jumper over a shirt would be my first choice. Grunge and oversize jumpers are popular for AW 13 too. It’s also said that animal prints are for AW 13 but not my favourite.

10. Messenger bags & Backpacks. I’m not a fan of bags (Shoulder bags) when it comes to menswear but messenger bags and packbacks seem reasonable and good; also on trend.

For men bags I would go with Bally.

TREND ALERT: Leather Gloves On The Rise For Winter 2013/14

We have been seing the rise of leather in menswear for at least 6-7 months. Especially with Belstaff's 'Moto-Inspired' campaign and the recent London shop opening with David Beckham, it became more obvious than ever. Many brands have started to showcase their leather collections. Because a bad guy look always work! :)
In addition to leather jackets and biker boots, leather accessories are on the rise as well. Such as leather gloves!

A pair of Leather Gloves became a 'MUST HAVE' for Winter 2013/14. 

When it comes to leather, the trend requires a high quality. You can't go cheap on this. So click to shop some real and fashionable leather gloves: pict.com/p/BUw

Men @ London Fashion Week - Harry Styles was the star!

Another London Fashion Week set up at Somerset House full of celebrities & models overseas, and apparently Harry Styles, taking a front-row seat at the Fashion East show in the Topshop space, was the star of the week! Wherever you click he is there. I don't complain...

I loved his patterned t-shirt and black skinny jeans but I can't say the same things for his leopard t-shirt...

While Harry Styles was making his appearance Burberry Prorsum became another star of the week.
It was hard to find men styles during the week because as always women were everywhere :p

The Fatal Blow: Belstaff meets David Beckham

When it comes to menswear Belstaff has always been in my TOP 3 brands. It's 'the' love mark of mine. I love the style, the fabric, the design, and the attitude of the brand.
There is no one in the world that can say that David Beckham is not a style icon.
So...
Here is a fatal blow! Belstaff meets David Beckham! The best campaign couple of all times!


As a leather star, Belstaff is known for making some of the finest motorcycle attire around. With its new chief creative officer Martin Cooper, the biking brand has opened a gargantuan flagship shop on London's New Bond Street and launched it with a style icon; David Beckham.

Belstaff is now open at 135-137 New Bond Street, Mayfair, London, W1. 
To shop it online click here.


Here is an interview with David Beckham by Nick Carvell, Fashion Editor of GQ.co.uk, at last night's store launch to talk bikes, biker jackets and best-dressed riders.
Source for the interview: GQ

GQ: When did you first get involved with Belstaff?
David Beckham: About five or six years I went into a vintage store when I was first thinking about riding bikes and found this really cool biker - an old, vintage Belstaff jacket. I've worn it ever since.

GQ: Who's the best-dressed man to ever get on a bike?
I always look back in time, so I'd have to say Steve McQueen.

GQ: What is it about riding a bike you particularly love? Does Victoria ever hop on with you?
With four children, it hard to get her on the bike. I love the freedom of riding. When you're out there no-one knows it's you because you've got the full face helmet on. I can just enjoy being alone.

GQ: Do you have a couple of bikes yourself?
I do, they're over in LA. I haven't actually ridden in England yet - only in the US and in France.

GQ: What's your favourite motorbike?
It's got to be my vintage [Harley Davidson] Knucklehead. I had it built specially from different parts. It's great - really Twenties looking. Also you just can't beat a classic Triumph.
