As the days become chillier, street style gains a different appeal. Dull hues start overwhelming the cityscape and it can get a little tiring – fall may not be the brightest season, but that doesn’t mean your style has to go dreary! We are not saying you have to walk around in crazy colors and shirts so out there you don’t know where your hands should go, but still some excitement is due. This fall, with the return of some very cool retro trends, we also see a lot of fun prints and patterns. The predominant theme of the Fall/Winter 2014 collections circles around two topics – geometrics and florals. These two print families are super exciting, very stylish and yet masculine. So why not introduce some thrill into the season and turn a few heads with printed pieces? There is certainly plenty to choose from, but to make it easier for you we have selected our absolute favorite contestants in the race towards bringing a bit of spice into fall. Scroll down to choose the bold pieces that will best fit your style and personality.
Burberry Propsum Reversible Double-Breasted Trench Coat
Burberry has created a masterpiece dedicated to this season and its need for print. The outer portion of the trench coat is silk and the inner – cashmere. The fabrics alone draw you to the garment. The coat also features a pointed collar, waist tie, angled welt hand pockets and branded matte buttons.
Saint Laurent Check Mohair-Blend Sweater
Making a grand entrance into fall is inevitable with this grunge-inspired Saint Laurent sweater. The mohair-blend yarn looks and feels very luxurious and is an excellent counterpoint to the edgy vibe. The body is slightly shorter than the sleeves, which is an interesting twist that will make you stand out from the crowd.
Exemplaire Intarsia-Sleeve Pullover Sweater
If you would like to get into the floral trend, but don’t want to overdo it this luxurious piece may be the right pick for you. This lightweight intarsia knit sweater is pure cashmere. It features a floral graphic on the sleeve and is yet an incredibly masculine piece, constructed to complement your body type in the best way possible.
J.W. Anderson Patterned Merino Wool Crew Neck Sweater
This amazing piece is a combination of London cool and pristine Italian craftsmanship. The soft merino wool guarantees you will have a warm, super comfortable fall. The print, on the other hand, is a very intriguing take on the geo trend, with a bit of a psychedelic flow. Luxury, quality and style is what you get with this piece.
Tomorrowland Sweater & Poplin Combo Shirt
Not only is this shirt a perfect addition to the geometric trend, but it is also a contemporary hybrid that definitely deserves a bit more attention. This pointed-collar cotton shirt features elbow patches in piqué knit and stripes of fine-gauge sweater-knit. It is so cool, we are willing to bet that you’ll want to wear it forever!
Wooyoungmi Slim-Fit Printed Cotton Shirt
It is difficult not to love a blend of our favorite print trends! Wooyoungmi has a tradition of using the work of painters to enhance his amazing collections. This shirt was inspired by the desert, and its rough yet captivating print is an undeniably success. The shirt is pure cotton slim-fit.
Lbt-Lbt Boston Sweater
A cozy wool and cashmere blend sweater, constructed in Italy, for those days of fall when comfort and style need to go hand in hand. The brand has probably drawn color inspiration from its Scandinavian heritage, but the pattern in navy, black and white definitely has that necessary geo edge.
Beams Plus Button-Down Collar Panelled Tartan Cotton Shirt
The Japanese brand was inspired by classic American wear when creating this super comfortable, lightweight cotton shirt. A slightly slim fit and variations on tartan make it an exceptional pick for your fall style. Tartan shirts can come off as a bit boring, but in this case Beams Plus have mixed the patterns and colors in a super cool and fresh way that complements the geometric trend perfectly.
Native Youth Allover Geo Print Pullover
A very subtle introduction into the geometric trend, this Native Youth pullover features raglan sleeves and a crew neck. The base color is navy, while the geometric motifs are red and white rhombuses. The pullover is polyester, acrylic and wool blend.
Obey Cranford Sweater
The floral intarsia print is big and bold, yet it holds a certain appeal that only a stylish gentleman can pull off. The sweater comes in two colors schemes – white/grey and burgundy/navy, so you can choose the one that will fit best into your fall wardrobe. The colorblocking is another appealing touch of the Obey sweater. The materials are cotton and polyester.
