• The 2011 fall season’s trends are manly, wearable and can be acquired at different price ranges.
• It’s time to say goodbye to the skinny jeans; relaxed fit is taking over.
• British subculture themes are this year’s carryover fall street style fashion trend.
Do you remember the last time you looked at your suit and said, “Double-breasted?! No, I can’t wear this. That’s so last season?" We can’t either. That’s because you are not a woman. You’re a man, and you’re not as driven by the very latest the garment industry has to offer, but are more interested in finding your own street style groove.
This is the reason why we’re glad to report the so-called “trends” presented at the New York Fashion Week Fall 2011 are not at all trendy. Sure, there may have been the eccentric easy-to-make-fun-of look on the runway, but what would Fashion Week be without a few of those looks that even we scoff at?
From the great outdoors to a departure from the ultra-skinny styles that have dominated for seasons now, the street style fashion wear for this fall are manly, wearable and, with a few of our tips, can even help you save a few bucks. Here’s how to make sense of it all.
• The Woodsman
What’s more masculine than camping and hunting themes? Inspired by the woods and rustic living, the survival instinct and going back to primitive ways, the fall colors of the forest are reflected in the palette and overall aesthetic, with a lot of texture. Bonus points if you actually camp and hunt.
Some key takeaways here are to substitute your jeans uniform with five-pocket corduroys or slim-fit cargo pants, swap your combat boots for hunting ones (consider using colored shoe laces, like yellow or red), and hold on to your shearling coats for outerwear. Parkas are still cool (minus the bulk), as are heavy-knit wool socks that peek out of your boots and puffer vests worn over suiting. Key colors are hunter green and rustic orange.
• Relaxed Tailoring
Previous seasons found men’s legs being mistaken for women’s, we saw—or rather, didn’t see—the extremely thin silhouettes of seasons past at New York Fashion Week Fall 2011.
One of the designers paraded his collection which included eight-pleated trousers which says it’s time to get rid of those skinny jeans. It’s about shape, it’s about length. All of the designers’ collections are very chic and very easy to wear.
Warning—relaxed tailoring does not equal baggy. Try matching heavy layers this fall: wear a thickly-knit sweater under a camel cashmere wrap coat, go for pants that are a bit boot cut, and play with colors and patterns to take advantage of this fit.
• Carryover Trend: Britmania
A theme of British youth subcultures surfaced in youth street style fashion wear. This was a trend we picked up during New York Fashion Week Fall 2010. Hyden Yoo referenced Teddy Boys from the mid-50s, while Duckie Brown’s models all had short hair with piercings. Tim Hamilton showed punk-inspired scoop-neck T-shirts. Pull your Dr. Martens out of the closet, and layer hoodies under check blazers to achieve the look.
