Just Zip It

A good jacket should be able to last you from season to season. It’s something
that you’re likely to be wearing every day, or on more than one occasion. It is also
something that should complement your style, fit comfortably, and go with pretty
much anything. Comfort and durability are important considerations.

Mens jackets aren’t simply about keeping warm. Chances are, your clothes are going
to be one of the first things people notice about you. They give people the heads
up on who you are, and what your style is. So, taking the time to look around for
something that fits well and looks good is usually time well spent.

Trends come and go – we all know that – and before you know it, you’re beginning
to look like you got dressed in the dark. A clever coat or jacket could be the thing you
need to stay looking cool – whilst keeping warm at the same time.

There are plenty of menswear retailers out there, so there’s little excuse when it
comes to getting the look just right. G Star RAW, Soul Cal and Topshop all provide
excellent men’s clothes. River Island is also a good stop for on trend pieces that
won’t break the bank.

If you’re wondering what colour or shade you should be looking for, think about
where you’re going to wear it. For work and business, navy blue, brown and black
are always going to fit in perfectly. A lighter brown in suede or corduroy will set you
apart, whilst still looking smart.

Bright blazers are very much in this year, and are available in a rainbow of colours
from green to salmon. Whilst these are a great choice for casual wear on a night out,
caution should be advised when it comes to teaming a colourful piece with the rest
of your outfit. If you do choose to go bright, make sure you tone it down with plain
fabrics and muted colours elsewhere.

If you’re just looking for something to wear with everything and anything, take a
look at some of the great zip-up, high neck coats available on the market. These look
great whilst also being masculine and durable. They’ll also keep you dry if things
start to look stormy.

Whatever style you decide to try, this season’s men’s fashion is all about the perfect
fit, so it’s time to move away from baggy or loose clothes. Hoods are fine, but make
sure they work well with the image you’re trying to project. Whilst great for casual
wear, they’re a big no-no for the work place, and should be avoided.

There are plenty of great coats and mens jackets around, whether you’re after
something for the spring, or something that will see you through summer and
autumn as well. A good men’s jacket should complete a look, whatever the weather,
and will keep you looking smart and feeling confident. ;)
