The 'Snazzy Jacket' might be something your dad would say, but it perfectly sums up this year's Prom Season. The idea is keep it simple, but with a flamboyantl flourish.
This jacket, made from patterned jacquard fabric with metallic touches, is dressed down with a simple black T-shirt and grey wool trousers. Add shades and your best dance moves and you'll be the most stylish geek at the ball!

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?!

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!

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.

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.

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!
Business geek gets his professional head on in a new Remus Uomo suit. Throwaway that skinny fit and go for something for classic, more grown-up and generous. This blue Remus Uomo suit has a subtle micro check with handsome pocket highlights.
Express your personality through your choice of shirt, socks and accessorises. Think pink in a classic work shirt and matching socks, while a timeless leather briefcase is given an injection of fun with a crocodile bag charm. Snap!

TheChicGeek took a trip to sunny Marrakech to see the new YSL Museum - read more here - while there, he thought it rude not to show you one of the big trends of the 2018 season - Vertical Stripes.
Think 'stylish deckchair', designers such as Marni, Balmain, Etudes, Haider Ackermann, Paul Smith, Cerruti 1881 and Ami all did their vertical variations on the trend.
With the Jardin Marjorelle as the backdrop, bold vertical stripes are not only a statement, but they elongate the wearer. Don't be scared, you can clash them, as seen here, just make sure they're wide and colourful.
This is perfect for holiday wardrobes in both shorts and T-shirts, as well as shirts and trousers, as seen here on TheChicGeek.

It's the time of year to be comfortable, warm and, ultimately, cute. Nothing says 'narcissistic' like decorating a Christmas tree with your own image! Even the fairy on the top has a remarkable likeness!

The Drop, a new digital made-to-measure suit, service - see the full review here - kindly made TheChicGeek a suit of his request. Opting for chocolate brown with a millennial pink lining, the suit has a longer jacket and larger lapels to reflect the new mood away from skinny to something longer and wider.
TheChicGeek is channelling "The Deuce" as he goes into Autumn.
