It might be high time to raid your boyfriend's closet.

Looking to overhaul someone's wardrobe? Whether you've got your brother, boyfriend, or boy-space-friend in mind, let the Fall-Winter 2016 menswear runways give you some sartorial food for thought. After all, he's got to dress smart to play the part!

The Color: Pink

Please. It's 2017, and pink is so not just a "girls' color." Wear a sweet, sherbet-like hue in hints the way Yang Li uses it to break up an oversized all-black suit, or go the Gucci and Paul Smith way and don several shades of pink in one outfit.

The Print: Check

We aren't talking about your ordinary flannel shirt here. If you're feeling daring, Valentino has declared that you can wear a fully plaid suit and still look sophisticated! Either that, or try a fluffy checked Fendi pullover or Bottega Veneta's subtler plaid accents (they look great against black leather).

The Jacket: Bomber

We're pretty sure you're in on this trend already, but how about some new ways to work it? Layer a quilted bomber over a hoodie like Astrid Andersen does, throw a printed number on top of a suit like at Givenchy, or take a cue from Louis Vuitton and add a beret for good measure.

The Location: Wild West

Cowboys took center stage this season, saddling us up for a good time. We love Dolce & Gabbana's stripey patched shirts, this embossed suit from Paul & Joe (slim ribbon instead of a necktie? Genius!) and Roberto Cavalli's dreamy '70s-inspired take.

The Deployment: Military

The Combo: Tracksuit

Here's proof that the tracksuit, in all its matchy, stretchy glory, can look surprisingly chic. The key is to pick muted colors and as little print as possible; also, try to keep your fabrics crisp, not slouchy! Look to Neil Barrett, Burberry (plus points for the trench coat!), and Christopher Kane for inspo.
