I can finally say it is officially autumn! I don’t know about you guys but I love the season changes and the inspirational outfit ideas that materialise through this change. One of the best ways to stand on the pinnacle of autumn fashion greatness is to master the fine art of layering.
Layering is substantially more complex than just adding a jacket to your ensemble. Most guys tend to layer only for warmth and comfort. To that I say hell no.
Sure, comfort is great! But comfort doesn’t get you noticed. As always, I’ve come through with my own take on how you can maximise your layering game this autumn.
1 – Bomber jacket
One word. Timeless. You just can’t go wrong with a bomber jacket. In fact, most hoodless jackets tend to look exceptionally good compared to their hooded counterparts.
Here, you can see the benefits of not being restricted by a hooded jacket. I am able to layer my bomber jacket over a thin hoodie, promoting a different hooded material to contrast nicely with the darker jacket.
2 – Leather jacket
A quality leather jacket will not only last you a lifetime, but it will ensure you live a lifetime looking like an alpha dawg. For real, leather jackets are probably the most masculine item of clothing a guy can own. Period.
3 – Turtleneck
Bet you never saw this coming. It’s true, turtlenecks are a fantastic base for layering. A lot of people disrespect the turtleneck because they don’t understand how to style one.
Turtlenecks are amazing for their style and comfort. They can be dressed up or dressed down, creating one of the most versatile base layers in fashion history. This is why turtlenecks will never go out of fashion.
4 – Flannel shirt
Worn as a shirt alone, a flannel is worthy enough to pass as a casual style option. For me, flannels and even denim shirts work best when layered over a plain white tee. Not only does it breathe more life into your flannel, it adds more detail and depth to your overall outfit. This is definitely something that will be appreciated by those around you.
Let me know in the comments if you found any success with these layering techniques and if there are any other posts you would like to see for the colder seasons.
