The Fall/Winter 2014 Menswear collections yielded surprisingly synergistic layering combinations: bombers over button-ups, double-riders under coats, and turtlenecks and sweaters worn together, all seemingly effortless. With the weather cooling down, we found four unexpected, runway-inspired ways to ready you for winter, regardless of the occasion.

Bombs Away

For the next casual Friday, reinterpret business casual by zipping up a minimally-detailed bomber over a button-up. Think slim, not military surplus: Alexander Wang’s Lightly Padded Patterned Bomber Jacket subtly texturizes your look without compromising the silhouette, while KRISVANASSCHE’s Beige Wool Bomber Jacket is the superlative synthesis of classy and casual. Take a cue from the A.P.C. Fall 2014 Menswear Collection and opt for a slim cardigan underneath the jacket, like rag&bone’s Emerson Fine-Knit Wool or the Comme des Garçons Play Grey Heart Logo.
