This week, FashionUnited readers get an exclusive look at three menswear silhouette directions influencing the Fall/Winter 2019-20 season and beyond. Casual outerwear and classic sports silhouettes get a formal upgrade through considered construction in Refined Sports Shapes and Formal Padded Tech.
Staggered Layering reinvents a seasonal styling staple, playing with length and line to introduce new forms to the menswear wardrobe.
Refined Sports Shapes
Tracksuits, joggers and zipper sweatshirts are refined for Fall Winter 2019-20 with slimmed down proportions and contemporised lines. Classic athleisure shapes are reworked with luxurious yet technical material choices to give a sophisticated flow and movement to performance pieces.

Formal Padded Tech
Padded and puffer shapes move away from their casual and streetwear origins into the formalwear arena. Trench coats and wide leg pants are softened with padding effects and subtle technical elements while quilted outerwear takes on a cleaner look with cocooning forms and pared-back, performance-led styling.

A key element for Fall/Winter dressing, layered looks are updated for the new season. Mixed length hemlines create a staggered effect, amplifying and adding fresh interest to head-to-toe single colours. Longline pieces are worn under short jackets and vice-versa, with loose fits and wide proportions bringing a new fluidity to tailoring.
