#OOTD 115 Festivals SS18

Menswear blogger Chic Geek OOTD festival fashion

We all love a good festival, it's as British as bunting and warm cider. So, when it's time to get those chicken legs out, go bold and put bright colour with bright colour. (Oh, and something waterproof, we all know how the weather works!).

It's also practical, because it's good to stand out from the crowd, just for your friends' benefit. Just add some Gallagher swagger!

#OOTD 112 Back To The Future #Sponsored

OOTD menswear coats jackets House of Fraser Tommy Hilfiger

Our love of the 80s continues. From the music to the films to the fashion, it’s the decade that keeps on giving. 

The big trend, fashion wise, is 80s sportswear and this is the look you should be following. 

Go for larger fits, especially in coats and jackets - I’m wearing a large here - with strong, contrasting primary colours.

This jacket by Tommy Hilfiger is from House of Fraser and perfectly illustrates the new look while heavily referencing its vintage archive.

Team with dad jeans, branded socks and retro trainers. Don’t forget the gold chain or necklace for that final, confident flourish. Read more why here

Are you ready, Player One?!

OOTD menswear holiday The Chic Geek vertical stripes trend

You've probably got the idea - I've been banging on about them for months - that this season is all about vertical stripes.

Every designer and brand worth their stripes showed multiple variations of them. There are many ways to wear the trend - matching and mixed. Clash, contrast or complement, the choice is yours!

#OOTD 110 SS18 Trends Out In

Your shirt should be like fashion, this season - one minute you're in, and one minute you're out. Or, you could just compromise, like seen on the Marni catwalk, and wear it half-in and half-out.

It's like messy business attire. The walk of shame, the morning-from-the-night-before chic. Try it.

OOTD menswear World Cup The Chic Geek retro vintage sportswear

With the Russian World Cup coming, or should that be looming?! We're going to get all nostalgic for Panini stickers and short-short football kits. Retro sportswear shows no sign of slowing down in fashion circles and anything branded, or with brand's old logos, is as popular as ever.

For this World Cup, dress like it's Argentina 78. Think Sta-Press denim, simple loafers and you're favourite, skin-tight football top. Come on, England!

OOTD menswear parka coat Nobis Beast From The East

Nothing like an arctic blast to test your style mettle. TheChicGeek decided to face the 'Beast From The East', face-on, in a Nobis 'Heritage' parka. Nothing will stop TheChicGeek on his style quest to make the world of menswear a better and more refined place.

The primary red of the parka contrasts well against the white, wintry backdrop, and, like a style beacon, shines bright when teamed with other primary sportswear and accessorises. Add a pair of chic hiking boots and this beast has been well and truly beaten!
