How does your outerwear stack up? As we slowly move through to the second half of winter, the cold bite in the air is inviting us to cover up. But when the copious layers start building up, it’s easy to feel frumpy and big. But what if we told you that less is more?

Getting down to basics couldn’t be easier and for a look that is far from it, we suggest refining your style. Following a period of relaxed street style, a fusion of architecture and fashion has come to fruition and highlights sharp tailoring. Versatile and appropriate for all occasions, while classic pieces provide the perfect base, make a statement with floor-length style. Putting a spin back on oversized style, don’t be afraid to hit the ground running with Matrix-inspired pieces.

Courtesy of Bottega Veneta, a new wave of mens style is coming through.

“When fashion feels like architecture. Bottega Venetta uses heavy fabrics and straight lines to build the base for this collection. Pleat front pants and floor length coats are key”, says ICON Fashion Director, Kim Payne.

Not for the lighthearted, when opting for floor-length coats and pants, keep the look simple and let the craftsmanship do the talking.
