In this day in age, it has become fashionable to wear industrial-like pieces while still being dressed well and put together. Of course, that’s harder than it sounds, but you get the concept. When dressing for the winter, the typical Fashionisto seems to have a little more to work with. From fisherman knitted turtlenecks to a great pair of boots, there’s various ways to achieve a look anyone would love. I’ve taken many notes from various menswear designers, and the one I took the most notes from knows what they’re doing.
I was inspired by the very work-wear and industrialized feel of the fall 2015 Engineered Garments collection. From bucket hats to constructed blazers made of multiple fabrics, they know how to make a good thing work. Not only are the pieces great, but so are the colors that they utilize. The colors contrast well with my skin, and would also be perfect on just about anyone. To get a more practical yet, stylish feel, I wore my Bedale Barbour jacket. This jacket is essential because it’ll help against the elements and will keep you looking flawless at the same time. And who doesn’t like looking like a million bucks! As well, to give it more of a workwear feel, I wore my UNIQLO and Blue Blue Japan collaboration scarf. I absolutely love it because it gives the look more stability.
To make it a bit more subtle, I also ended up wearing my olive green trousers. What’s great about this color is that it is a great foundation for any look, and will give a very retro workwear feel to it. Overall, to make the look work, you have to think about the layers and how to strategically piece them together in the correct way. After all, you want to look good while doing it!
