Gentleman, take note. Black is the new black this fall. However there are few things to be aware of when dressing-in-the-dark in order to avoid looking like Darth Vader. Here we share some tips on how not to dress like you belong in a scene from Reservoir Dogs.
When going for head to toe black make sure to mix up fabrics and textures. This will break up the look and give off a more fun yet sophisticated vibe and less I’m-dressed-for-a-funeral. A simple way to do this is by adding a knit tie or cashmere cardigan. To get the look, Tom Ford features a few options in his latest collection. Pick up the texture knit tie in all black. Tom Ford, 103 NE 39th Street, (786) 749-2600
You can still master the black trend by adding in a hint of another hue. Choose a deep plum or navy like Hermès created in this new fall collection or go for a brighter pop of color like yellow that Dior Homme sent down the runway. Hermès, 175 NE 40th Street, (305) 868-0118, Dior Homme, 161 NE 40th Street, (305) 571-3576.
When opting for a causal look, steer clear of shine and keep it simple. Throw on a leather jacket over dark jeans or dress for the day in athleisure style plants in black. Find both at Rick Owens, 220 NE 39th Street, Suite #102, (786) 703-2950. For when the weather cools, a chunky cable knit sweater as seen at Ermenegildo Zegna is the perfect weekend wear.
