Here’s To: A Stylish 2016

Happy New Year, y’all.

What’s worse than coming back to work the week after New Year’s celebrations? Coming back to work the week after the week after New Year’s celebrations. Yet, here we are.

With the new year comes annoyingly big crows at the gym, lame Facebook statuses like “New Year, New Me,” and people asking you what your resolution is.

If you haven’t made a resolution yet, consider making it a promise to be more stylish in 2016. Today we’re going to talk menswear trends – and not about the overalls and short shorts that certain trend websites forecast guys wearing in 2016.

Here are some of the more attainable looks to hop on board with in 2016:

Bomber Jackets

This kind of jacket has always been cool, but that coolness has gotten new life on the 2016 fashion week runways. Bomber jackets are available now in winter iterations; wool, quilted leather, and even fur-lined. But come the spring and summer months, you can count on finding this must-have jacket style made in lighter materials.

SHOP: The Collegiate Bomber, $89.99

Denim is a thing, and will always be a thing. It’s hard to underestimate a pair of good jeans, like the light-wash ones pictured above.

If you were too scared to try a pair last year, then now is definitely the time to give it a go; by now, everyone’s already acclimated to this trend.

White chinos are cool, especially in the summer on an island somewhere. Tip: Don’t wear red undies that day.

Colors to Try
Mauve, grey, dark green. Experiment with color in more muted palettes. But please, just leave your salmon pants at home. #newyearnewyou #amiright?
