This Fall all the fashion lovers were presented to this male style.
This fashion trend is not only about dressing like a man,
it is about dressing like a dandy.
Take a look at this pictures:
The pictures above are examples how a dandy would dress up.
A dandy is "a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance,
refined language, and leisurely hobbies,
pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self" in Wikipedia.
"Historically, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain, a dandy,
who was self-made, often strove to imitate an aristocratic lifestyle despite coming from a middle-class background" in Wikipedia.

The lady version of a dandy was seen around some of the most important runways of the Fashion World. Jil Sander presented overcoats and Hermés, Donna Karan, Prada and Stella McCartney went for the matchy suits. Hermés and Donna Karan took the trend even more literally putting some top hats on the models' head. Fancy, hun?

Summarizing, dressing like a dandy is wearing nice blazers or coats that end right above your knee, a great pair of moccasins and nice patterned or unpatterned straight pants. A top hat is an accessorie that a person who is okay with taking risks should use. It is not essential. Remember to stay true to your main style.
Nice shirts underneeth the blazers are a must.
Have a nice weekend!
