Fall Trend Alert: The Grey Suit!


Fall is around the corner and looking back to fall fashion week and the trends of Toronto, grey suits are carrying over. In spring of this year we saw many designers show a classic three piece suit featuring plaid and angular patterns; this fall we will be wearing a solid coloured grey. The grey suit is a perfect way for men to transition into this fall; the now solid coloured suit allows men to team them with oxford shirts in deep purples and paisley prints. Additionally, men can accessorize with croc leather bags and textured shoes. The amazingly talented Marc Jacobs in signature fashion has taken this fall’s must have suit and featured the masculine broad shoulders teaming it with skinny cropped and cuffed dress pants. Again in true Marc fashion, this suit worn with boots is perfect for any fashion forward male. Catering to a more business clientele the grey suit can be found teamed with straight and relaxed cut pants by suit veterans Ralph Lauren and Versace. Men looking for a new grey suit should as always avoid pleated slacks; unlike our female counterparts the waist high wide leg dress pant is another red flag. Designer Giorgio Armani took the purple we are seeing everywhere for fall and did metallic dress pants with grey blazers for those daring enough to sport this style. Featured on the cover of Russia’s current GQ Style is a grey suit with a two toned collar further, teen heartthrob Nick Jonas is sporting an almost identical grey suit on the cover of the new Jonas Brothers album, A Little Bit Longer. With September fast approaching, wearing a navy or royal blue oxford shirt is the perfect way to start this trend.

The grey suit won't fall out of trend as long as there are great suit designers.
