Winter Series: Men's Style
I just love men's winter fashion because there are even more layers to dabble with. One of such layers is...
The Statement Coat
A coat is a subtle yet effective way to make a statement. But it is important to get the right amount of "statement"--too much and it looks like you're trying too hard, none at all and it looks like you really don't care, but just the right amount can trigger a double take, an unconscious smile and even a couple more hidden glances.
I started creating this look by choosing the statement coat so that everything else would complement it. I went on to choose the pants, with navy blue in mind. But instead of choosing plain navy blue pants, I chose this lightly checkered pair to satisfy the old-school vibe from the coat. I then threw in a simple eggplant cashmere jumper and a white shirt, and finished off the look with a paisley bow-tie, brown loafers with a belt to match, a classic watch and tortoise shell round frames.
