As the leaves begin to turn and the temperature begins to fall, the urge to throw on a big coat may arise. A dapper alternative to big bulky coats is layering. Layering gives you the ability to take light peaces and layer them on top of each other for comfort in the fall and winter months. Items such as sweaters, vests, jackets and overcoats are excellent items that maintain that dapper feel, but keep you warm. Accessories such as hats, scarfs, and gloves can also be used to add layers and depth to your look.
This week I wanted to get a fall look for this shoot so I went to a local park in Virginia Beach. For the look, the shirt, sweater and slacks are from Banana Republic. The blazer is Kenneth Cole and the trench coat is a thrift store find. For the accessories I have a pocket square from H&M and the scarf is from Urban Outfitters.
Winter is coming and the days will be cold. A dapper man never misses an opportunity to mix up the look and display versatility.
