As we move from summer to fall, it's often hard to grasp the key concepts of cool weather dressing. Enter Jack Wills, the British lifestyle brand beloved for their modern take on menswear heritage pieces. Their fall 2015 collection is the perfect panacea to a perplexing style conundrum. Taking inspiration from scholastic references, the new collection infuses preppiness with a sportswear twist — think sweatpants tailored to look like formal trousers or a dash of neon lining for a sharp suit jacket. But here are the key takeaways you need to know right now: Outerwear is your best friend (points 1, 2 and 4); a bold accessory is all you need (point 5); comfort is key (point 3). Consider this your fall style upgrade.
1. The quinessential denim jacket
The wash of the denim is kept dark, but a contrast stitching in neon orange instantly imparts a cadre of youthful energy to this style classic.
2. The camel coat
The ubiquitous camel coat is given a subtle update with a contrasting lapel in burgundy for the new season.
3. The formal sweatpant
Smart casual takes on a whole new meaning with comfort taking centre stage without compromising on cut.
4. The bold outdoors coat
Turn heads with an unconventional wine red outdoors coat that combines the best of a tailored aesthetic with the lightness of a windbreaker.
5. The statement scarf
More is more this fall, and what better way to spruce up an outfit than with a stunning scarf in pops of bright colour?
