LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Layer Up With a Brave Heart

Let's Hear it for the Boys

I easily crush on new trendy goodies with each different season. However, some items are just my forever love. The double-breasted coat is one of them.

I’m always a huge fan of the double-breasted coat. For me, it is the ultimately stylish winter coat. This winter, a fine and properly cut double-breasted coat is a must-have essential. This Fashionisto dressed this classic coat in a chic, but creative way. Attention fellow trendsetters, this season is all about ‘brave’ layers.

I spotted him at SoHo on a gloomy rainy day. He sophisticatedly layered a moto jacket under the checked double-breasted coat. For men, layering a coat over another coat is not a secret dressing style. Working gentlemen commonly wear long coats over suit coats. The black moto jacket this Fashionisto wears takes the look from standard to stand out. From leather to wool, the strongly texture collision creates an impeccable, chic look.

For college kids, you can take a style cue from this Fashionisto to create your own layer-up look. A denim jacket is a fab replacement of moto jacket. It adds casual and sporty sense to classy double-breasted coats.

Bright accessories are another great way to liven up your layers. The trick to making clashing look cool is to bring in just a pop of color. Try it with a fun scarf and keep fitted for the rest of your look, just like the pictured Fashionisto did.

This season is all about layering up. All you need is a brave heart to change up your layered looks.

Hint: To recreate his look, you need a fitted double-breasted coat. A patterned one like plaid will add you extra style point. A fine moto jacket on top helps you keep up the concise look.
