If you want to start shopping for the best NJ fashion trends that 2019 has to offer, it’s only right to start on top with the navy topcoat. A navy topcoat is a staple for any professional man’s wardrobe, trust us. This coat, with its structured silhouette and sturdy shoulder pads, can be worn over a tuxedo for a special night out or paired with black denim for a more casual look. The best news about a trendy topcoat? You can find a wide selection of topcoats in navy from premium brands, such as Corneliani and Ted Baker. Opt for navy topcoats in fine fabrics that function to keep you warm in the early winter months of 2019, like cozy cashmere and wool blends.

2. Chasing Checks

chasing checksChecks never go out of style, and they’re still one of the hottest NJ fashion trends for 2019. Checkered patterns took over the runway during Fall/Winter 2018 men’s fashion show collections for premium brands like Canali, and they’re not going anywhere in the new year. Checks are just as trendy as ever. From checkered pants for work to checkered shirts, there are endless options to choose from. Whichever checkered style you choose to sport in 2019, take advantage of a professional Bergen Country tailor to help you create a custom look and check this trend off of your list.

3. Cool Corduroy

Corduroy is a fabric that’s taking over in 2019. This versatile fabric is on this year’s trend reports for good reason; it works well to accomplish a stylish look while also keeping you warm. Expect to see corduroy in a variety of casual pieces, from trucker jackets to long-sleeve shirts. In 2019, you’ll also be able to wear work-friendly versions of corduroy as blazers and trousers are popping up on the market. With such a funky fabric, you want your whole look to scream “It’s a new year and my new style is here to stay.” To do so, pair your corduroy pieces with other fabrics to stay on top of all the NJ fashion trends in 2019, like brushed jeans from high-end brands like Joe’s Jeans and AG Jeans.

4. Scaling Scarves

Scarves really are the best of both worlds – they keep your neck warm while also keeping you trendy. Since scarves are such a classic staple, much of what’s to come in the style world of scarves in 2019 will remain the same, but with a more dramatic twist. That’s right, we’re talking about scaling, oversized scarves as the on-trend accessory of the new year. This year, not only are scarves functional, but they’re also meant to be a real statement piece. This trend was on the scene nearly half a decade ago and it’s making a comeback. Our favorite scarf-studded looks? Try a monotone scarf with a classic suit jacket or wear a plaid scarf with a traditional trench coat. To stay extra warm during these cold winter months in NJ, go for scarves made of premium fabrics, including lambswool and cashmere.

5. Mismatching Misters

Remember the days when your mom used to yell at you for trying to leave the house while wearing socks that didn’t match? Now, you get to make your childhood dream come true because being a mismatched mister is actually one of the top NJ fashion trends for 2019. This year, be a little bold and don’t be afraid to experiment with mismatching prints and patterns. Your socks are a safe place to start. If you’re looking to give this 2019 trend a shot, start by coordinating paisley- or checkered-pattern quarter socks with pinstriped or solid-colored suits, such as the high-quality suits from premium brands like Ted Baker or Jack Victor. If you want to play it safe, embrace tonal dressing and go for a monochromatic look that pairs socks in the same color story as your pants.
