Men’s 2014 Autumn/Winter New Key Items


When fashion forecasting is being done the availability isn’t always as high in certain parts of the world as others.  I tried looking on all the available clothing sites for men and didn’t find the things I wanted to.  Furthermore not all the online shopping websites has all their stock on the website. 

In this post I will bring you the latest updates on the New Key Items for your wardrobe for Autumn/Winter 2014.  The sole purpose of a Key Item in your closet is so that you can always relay on that specific item for everyday dressing and then of course for special occasions.  A key item will sometimes not be much different than the previous season’s key item, but will the use of fabrics and styling will be different.  With a great key item wardrobe planning will also be possible.  With wardrobe planning the purpose is to get the optimum out of your wardrobe without having closets and closets full of clothing.  When your wardrobe is planned correctly dressing will become much easier and enjoyable.

The main thing to keep in mind with a key item in your closet is that it should be of a very high quality.  Therefore, don’t be afraid to pay a little bit extra.  Key items are seldom the high fashion items and can easily be worn the next season when mixed with other clothing items. 

So guys, here are the top 5 key items to have in your wardrobe for Autumn/Winter 2014:

1.       Aviator Bomber:
·         This item is nothing new to the consumer as it has been a must have item before.
·         Be on the lookout for leather / tweed fabric in this style.
·         The trim (area around the neck) can also be purchased in different types of material.  Be on the lookout for quilting and fur.



2.       Premium Sweatshirt:
·         Sportswear is a favourite with the men’s collections this year making it possible for them to look comfortably fashionable.
·         This new sweatshirt offers sleek lines and innovative quilting.



3.       Wool Mac:
·         The wool mac can be classified as a new item because of the transition it went through from classic trend-led styling so that it will be more appealing for a younger audience.
·         This is a very versatile item that can go from a very formal look to a casual everyday look – depending on the styling.
·         The typical material used in this updated classic trend-led style coat is warm wools, flannels and tweeds.


4.       Smart-Casual Dinner Jacket:
·         This jacket is being jazzed up by flamboyant and rich materials.  Furthermore it is a statement piece and at the same time it’s classic and timeless.
·         Pair this jacket with a plain t-shirt and a jean and you will be the most stylish guy at the dinner party.
·         Be on the lookout for classic patterns and materials to ensure a youthful look.


5.       Chunky Roll Neck:
·         Building on the previous success of the cable-knits and Fair Isles the chunky roll neck pushes forward the heritage look.
·         This is a handcrafted sensibility combined with a rugged masculinity when styled with the right clothes.
·         Wear this with a leather jacket, updated blazer or even your favourite coat.  Style it with a pair of jeans and a travel bag and you are ready for a weekend away in the cold.

The most important thing to keep in mind with fashion is that there are trends that can be followed.  The latest trends and fashion trends should not be followed blindly by you, the consumer.  It’s best to think about your OWN lifestyle, preferences and fashion and then incorporate the latest trend so it can suit YOU and YOUR personality.  One of the biggest fashion mistakes you can ever make is not to be true to yourself.
