Men’s formal wear fashions change with the season, and if you want to look stylish at your next special event, you need to keep up. Find out what men’s formal wear looks are the most popular for Fall and Winter 2014, and dress to impress at your upcoming holiday party.
Black and White
Although a few pops of color are in style for Fall/Winter 2014 men’s formal wear looks, for the most part, runways are filled with black and white. Designers like Casely-Hayford, Todd Snyder, and Agi & Sam are all featuring primarily black and white outfits in their collections, and it is an easy look to pull off. An impeccably tailored black slim fit tux
paired with a crisp white dress shirt can provide a classic and fashionable look this season.
White Dinner Jackets
The 2014 Academy Awards inspired a popular trend for Fall/Winter 2014: the white dinner jacket. Oscar winners Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto both chose to stand out from the crowd of black men’s formal wear
and wore black formal pants with white dinner jackets. If you are feeling daring, you can even add a cummerbund or other accessories in a fall color.
The days of wide lapels on tuxes or suit jackets are long gone, and fortunately, those wide, fly-away lapels have been replaced with slimmer, better fitting options. Whether you are attending a holiday party or wedding, consider choosing a lapel with a skinny shawl in order to give you a sleek look that will make your body appear longer.
Shades of Gray
While the black and white tux, paired with matching tuxedo shirts and ties
, is a classic combination this season, more daring options in heather grey are also available. These eye-catching tuxes are designed to help you stand out from the crowd. Fashioned from incredible grey wool with self flap pockets, self notch lapels, and a 2 button single-breasted front, this stylish men’s wear ensemble is sure to make you admired at your fall formal event.
A colored tuxedo is a great way to stand out from the crowd this season. Most recently seen on Kevin Spacey, a slate blue tux with black lapels is a unique and classy men’s wear selection for winter. Be sure to dress up the tux by adding classic black accessories, such as a tie or vest, but you can also use colorful accessories to make an even bigger and more unforgettable fashion statement.
Black Bow Ties
Fashion experts are raving about the reemergence of the black bow tie in 2014 men’s wear collections. A few bow ties were in attendance at the 2014 Academy Awards, and since then, they have appeared in a variety of men’s wear runway shows as staples for Fall and Winter 2014 collections. The classic bow tie can take a great tux to a whole new level of sophistication and class, so consider swapping out your straight tie for a bow this season.
Hopefully reviewing these styles has helped you to envision yourself in this year's fall and winter fashions! Don't forget to have fun with your style and personalize your look!
