Jump-suit

Topman jumpsuit, blue belt, Adidas suede sneakers, Raf Simons sunglasses, white visor, Australia mens blog

Because, morning power walk in a (jump)suit.

High fashion labels have sent male models in jumpsuits down the runway over the years but have never seem to turn them to commercial success. Mention mens jumpsuits and most guys would instantly think of tradesmen (oil change, anyone), sportsmen (skiers, Formula One drivers) or animal onesies.

Birds

Because, the birds.

With easier accessibility to digital printing, more designers and brands are crafting statement looks by using distinct bold prints. A vibrant printed shirt can make you stand out from the crowd for the right reasons but many still prefer the comfort of a check or stripe casual shirt as the thought of teaming a vibrant button-down can come across as complex.

5 leather jackets to own this season - AW14

Patrik Ervell leather aviator jacket, AW14 mens leather jacket, Australian menswear blog

Leather jackets have increasingly become a wardrobe staple for men and for good reasons. They are timeless classics that age well and exude an essence of unspoken coolness and masculinity and are very much utilitarian as much as they are attractive.

Modernist neoprene

Neil Barrett red sweater, sweatshirt, neoprene, Henrik Vibskov hat, Linda Farrow glasses, blue wall, Sydney, menswear blogger,

Because, sweater on sweater.

There is a certain stigma with fedora hats as a menswear accessory; it is not fashion. If you have paid enough attention, most men who adorn a fedora hat are usually older men, geeks or lazy gentlemen whose sense of style ceases when they put on that hat because they assume it will lift their mundane look.

Mint floral tie

Carven leather shoes, Marc Jacobs leather backpack, floral tie, 3.1 Phillip Lim glasses, Sydney menswear blogger, mens grey chino trousers

Because, mint and micro print.

Let's be honest, mint is an underrated colour when it comes to mens fashion. It belongs to the pastel family and most guys are still somewhat adversed to this soft, washed-out tone. Despite exuding an element of milkiness, mint has a fresh and crisp edge. It exhilarates as much as it softens with its cool pigment.

Red monotone

Opening Ceremony desert boots, Michael Kors rose gold watch, Kris Van Assche glasses, red chinos pants, Australia mens blogger

Because, different shades of red.

Monotone is a bold style statement that most people do not think they can pull off. Firstly it is not easy to own items from head to toe in the same colour (and we are not talking about black, because seriously who has time for that). Secondly you need the confidence to dress in monotone as it will turn heads even if you are wearing classic items like shirts and trousers.

Flower power

floral pants, Michael Kors watch, straw hat, Australia menswear blogger, flat lay, 2-tone glasses, Sydney Art Gallery of New South Wales

Because, wearing floral like a boss.

Floral has become very prevalent in the last few seasons and judging by the number of mens high fashion labels using it as a motif, it is safe to say that it has become a print that is as vital as camo.

Tan carryall

Acne mens Aldo yellow hat, Raf Simons sunglasses, Zara mens bag, menswear blogger, mens dinner jacket

Because, exotic vacation here I come.  

Travelling is essential to one's mental health but many seem to forget that travelling in style is equally important. Most men would think that being sartorially correct is the last important thing as holidays are about relaxation and not about being stifled with attire.
