Snag some inspiration from New York Fashion Week: Men’s
Twice a year, the Men’s Health Style Team packs up their laptops, straps on their (super stylish) sneakers, and heads downtown to watch American brands and designers showcase their new collections for the next season. We get to see where the designers drew inspiration from, and what fashion’s finest will be wearing come fall. It’s a peek into the future, really.
Insider tip: The most stylish guys aren’t the models, decked out in designer gear. The most fashionable ones are the guys going to the shows—they’re pairing modern jackets with vintage jeans and wearing awesome sneakers with a suit. It’s other fashion editors, retailers, bloggers. These guys take the designer trends and make them applicable to real life. New York Men’s Day is the first big event of the week, and we were there—snapping the best looks—and providing tips on how you can pull it off.
Men’s Health’s own executive fashion and grooming director, Brian Boye, is a big fan of a cashmere turtuleneck. The navy sweater under a navy topcoat looks sharp—and slimming.
All you need to upgrade a weekend outfit? Expert layering and a hat for good measure.
The fashion-foward guys in NewYork love an all black outfit. This one pops with a camel suede motorcycle jacket.
Men’s Health fashion editor Dan Michel knows sharp accessories complete the outfit. The olive leather gloves are a stylish addition that still goes well with a neutral coat.
A navy topcoat pulls any look together, whether you’re dressed in weekendwear or a business suit.
Fur? Yes, really. If you’re into the stylish risk, this is a subtle way to wear it. It adds some texture without overpowering the outfit.
A statement jacket is easy to pull off when you keep the colors simple. Navy always looks polished.
Military inspiration is always a standout. The layered vest and baseball cap complete the look.
Streetwear looks are always big for fashion show-goers. A hoodie layered under a jacket is a standby.
Make your sweater a little more formal with an oxford shirt and modern tie.
Another way to make a camel coat pop: a geometric pattern shirt underneath. The navy and white combo looks sharp with the neutral outerwear.
Make any outfit more stylish with long-line coat. A dark outfit like this also makes his tan Chelsea boots pop.
A stylish take on businesswear: Add some interest to the polished outfit with a tie bar and pocket square.
