The leaves are changing and the weather is getting cold so it’s time to start transitioning your wardrobe. Fall is the season of layers, earthy tones, and the function-forward mindset. Incorporate some or all of these fall essentials into your wardrobe to ensure you stay warm and stylish this season.
The overshirt is the perfect top for Fall. Easy to take on and off and just warm enough to get you through the transition between fall and winter. You can take the silhouette of an overshirt and apply it in many different ways. Some prefer a flannel and some prefer a simple chore jacket.
Sweaters often come in a variety of weights and materials making them absolutely essential for the colder months. A lighter merino wool sweater can be dressed up with your business casual outfits while a heavier cotton sweater is perfect for layering and running errands.
Personally, jackets are one of the main reasons I think Fall is the most stylish season of the year. There are so many options of silhouettes, weight, and materials that it makes the options endless.
Opting for a darker wash and a heavier material, denim will be your best friend in the fall & winter months. Dark wash denim is both stylish and functional while maintaining the versatility to pair with any outfit.
Chinos are a staple for the fall and winter months. Material weight varies so choose a heavier material to make them extra warm. A neutral color chino can be worn in a business casual environment or to elevate any casual outfit.
Going back to function over fashion, a rain jacket is essential for Fall. With the advancements in weather-proofing, companies can incorporate incredible technologies in a fashion-forward silhouette.
The key here is durability. The ideal boot consists of a quality leather, a Goodyear Welt construction and a studded rubber sole.
Minimal leather sneakers are timeless and fit perfectly into the fall wardrobe. Leather holds up to the elements and is easy to maintain.
Fall is the perfect season for adding personality to your wardrobe. Leather watch bands, beanies, colognes, wool socks, house slippers, sweatpants, the list is endless.
