Discover the three shades leading the sartorial pack this season: grey, in a wide range of flattering tones; blue, an all-time favourite that’s more popular than ever; and burgundy, a newcomer that’s guaranteed to make an impact and give your neutrals a boost. Here are our top picks for a dapper fall look.

Grey matters

Grey has always been a foolproof option for well-dressed men. This fall, however, the sombre shade is making a stylish comeback and looks more modern than ever. The key making the must-have shade work? Mixing together various textures and fabrics. Pairing different tones of grey also scores high on the trend scale. For maximum versatility, invest in a few key pieces, such as a flannel or jersey jacket, a textured turtleneck sweater and pants with a discreet checkered pattern. Throw in a couple of items in black and white, and you’ve got all of the essentials for a sleek, modern look.

Seasonal blues

Many men have recently embraced blue as their go-to hue, and the colour’s popularity will not be waning any time soon! No wonder, when you consider its easy-to-match versatility. Better still, a few well-chosen blue pieces are all you need to create the foundation of an efficient wardrobe. This season, navy remains an excellent option and a great starting point that pairs well with both softer and brighter tones of blue. Dark denim is also trending right now, so pair a classic navy jacket with deep-blue jeans or a denim shirt. Going from your desk to after-work drinks has never been so easy.
