Here are ten men's style standouts that will hold strong all the way through the season.
The piece's importance is only surpassed by its versatility; the sports jacket can be dressed up for work or down for an easy night out, without losing an ounce of sharpness throughout.
2. The Colorful Parka
If you're going to invest in one outerwear piece, make it a parka. The outerwear style is going to give you the most bang for your buck, as a good one will protect the highest-twist wool shoulders from the elements, while injecting some eye-catching color into you seven-day-a-week wardrobe.

3. The Slip-On Sneaker
Lazy men everywhere rejoice! Laces were so last year, and one shoe that saves time when getting dressed is the slip-on sneaker, like old-school Vans, that retains its laid-back California cool, but wouldn't be out of place anchoring a suit.
4. The Brown Suit
What can brown do for you? Turns out a whole hell of a lot. Give the basic navys and grays a break with the neutral hue that will make even the most staid shirt and tie pairing look fresh.
5. The Chest Stripe
Want people to think you're built like Superman, but haven't stepped foot into a gym this year? Easy, opt for a chest stripe. Their placement makes any guy appear broader across the chest and shoulders, and designers have incorporated the graphic design into everything from knits to tees and button-downs for spring.
6. The Denim Dress Shirt
Indigo shirting moved from the workroom to the boardroom this year, and gave new life to the soft cotton fabric.
When stripped clean of extraneous embellishments, given a semi-spread or button down collar, and paired with just about any tie, the shirt became every guy's secret office weapon.
Camo has been on our radar for some time now, but that hasn't stopped the trend from gaining more steam than ever moving into next year. While previous incarnations celebrated the classic woodland design, a clever new crop of variations is helping to keep the pattern alive and well.
8. The Double-Breasted Suit
DBs officially shifted from fashion-forward to the mainstream this year, and we couldn't be happier. The bold silhouette commands attention, whether closing a deal or a bar tab, and becomes the ultimate power suit when paired with an equally powerful shirt and tie.
9. The Monkstrap Shoe
Single or double monkstrap, the only things to remember when wearing monkstrap shoes is to not treat them like the fancy footwear they are and, of course, to show 'em off.
Monkstraps take any look (and we mean any) to elegant new heights.
10. The Three-Piece Suit
The uber-classic Savile Row-style three-piece came charging back this year, cut trimmer than its predecessors and proving that even the most traditional menswear can look just as modern as any of the hottest new trends.
