As the days get shorter and the weather gets cooler, now’s the time to start adding those jewel tones we’ve all had our eye on since last NYFW. And the best part? They can actually work for both you and your guy (twinning!). Either way, conscious coupling aside, we can help him create a fashion formula he can get behind, too. Just have him think rich, velvety colors in classic silhouettes and cuts, then add lots of layers. See, easy peasy. Let’s take a closer look…
What’s it all about: It goes without saying that olive green is the IT color for fall. Encourage him to experiment with fresh military-inspired silhouettes, from jackets to cargo pants right down to the utility boot, for an easy and versatile way to incorporate the trend. Another option? Throw on a bomber jacket to instantly up the cool factor.
Get the look: Polo Ralph Lauren Double-Knit Blazer, Henley Shirt, Hampton Straight-Fit Jeans; Kenneth Cole Reaction Double-Button Slim Blazer, Slim-Fit Cargo Pants, Henley with Faux Fur Trim; INC International Concepts® Metalcore Moto Jacket, Esteban Slim-Straight Cargo Pants.
What’s it all about: Guys (and girls) take note from the impending foliage and add warm shades of copper, rust and sun-kissed orange. Mix and match textures for dimension and warmth, then try layering a suede vest over a chevron sweater for a sophisticated way to dress in fall’s favorite layers.

What’s it all about: If suiting up is what he does best, then he should opt for the newest shades of gray this season with undertones of green, blue and brown. Use these subtle changes to refresh two-piece separates or opt for the sport coat paired with dark denim.

What’s it all about: Go blue, or go home! Another color to take note of for the suit-sporting set, pepper in complementary shades by way of shirt patterns or accessories and he won’t go unnoticed!
