Sometimes it seems like “Couture” fashion designers take the current fashion trends of the season and fill the runways with spectacular designs, but not clothing that everyone one can see themselves in. Each designer has their own individual style of clothing and the trick is to take “baby steps” when it comes to making your wardrobe more fashion forward.
The first thing that you need to do to update your Winter clothing is to make sure that you have a few basic essentials. Every guy needs a great fitting pair of jeans. A nice example is the “Burberry Brit Cavendish Resin Washed Denim Jeans in Indigo Blue” for $195. The five- pocket styling in the darker denim will take you from day to night. Now, with these jeans, you can build an on-trend outfit by adding a little color, texture, and patterns. Just include a few choice accessories, like a designer leather wallet, and you too can rock the catwalk.
Seersucker is a wonderful fabric that doesn’t stick to sweaty skin and actually helps with air circulation in the layers of an ensemble. Naturally, a variety of seersucker-based pieces are coveted during the summertime. But seersucker doesn’t work on every type of clothing, no sir.

INFEASIBLE: Suits made out of seersucker
Seersucker, despite being helpful and stylish, is hardly something to be used in formal wear. That’s why pieces like this executive suit send me up the wall: the naturally occurring wrinkles in the seersucker are casual and fun, but not sophisticated. A suit made out of seersucker is then a contradiction of approach, which maybe fun for a minute on a catwalk, but never appropriate for a board meeting.

On the other hand, seersucker totally works for blazers. Check out this Marc Jacobs, which would be perfect for an outdoor lunch or a evening soiree in the Hamptons. Being both casual and functional in concept, blazers and seersucker are a great pairing.
