Cutting-edge style that checks all the boxes
3, 2, 1... Happy new year! As Auld Lang Syne fades into the distance, we start to yearn for new places, open spaces and forays into the forest. It's time to slip into your favorite lumberjack outfit and embrace the feel-good factor that every new year brings — chop, chop!
As 2019 unfolds, a return to nature is on the cards. You can say goodbye to the ‘ugly’ fashion of 2018 — 2019 marks the moment our clothes become a cozy refuge from the winter weather. This new year, we’re reconnecting with our earthly roots and rifling through the rugged man’s closet for inspiration that cuts across the genders. The plaid flannel shirt with its red and black checks is back on center stage. It’s been spotted layered at Balenciaga, in bi-material coat mode at Carven and grungy at Each Other. Kendall Jenner is never without her lumberjack shirt, which she wears oversized with masculine flair. You can also wear it cinched at the waist, tucked into pants, fully buttoned up or, conversely, wide open over a pristine tank top for a more feminine feel. It can be paired with corduroy pants or black faux leather slim-fit jeans. It also looks great with a denim jumpsuit for a workwear vibe.
Hat-wise, the traditional beanie gets our vote, but you could also opt for a felt hat à la Maison Michel for that "hunting and fishing" look set to become 2019’s newest trend. Keep warm by adding a maxi puffer jacket (with or without sleeves) with a belt to emphasize the waist. A faux fur jacket is also the perfect partner to take you back to your style roots.
To keep your feet firmly on the ground, slip on a pair of stylish hiking boots like these beige hi-tops with faux fur by Vanessa Wu, or her faux suede Chelsea boots with rubber sole. And for trekker style that’s sharper than an ax, we have just the thing: camel bi-material hiking boots with your name on them! You can also add a touch of hipster rock to your lumberjack look with a pair of ankle boots with buckles. In Vanessa’s e-shop, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Shoe “chopping” has never been so much fun!
