Our Top Picks for Fall Trends to Try Now
It is a time to shake out the overcoat, find the cashmere scarf, and polish up the essentials. Here are our favorite trends for fall:
Effortlessly Badass Leather Jacket: Perennially on the best dressed list, the leather jacket is one of the most versatile must-haves for every tall and husky man. You can pair a leather jacket with just about any garment – a hoodie, turtle neck, or rolled up neck jumper – when the temperature drops. For a casual look, throw on a bomber jacket over a t-shirt and a scarf to complete the look. Shop Double Ralph Lauren for statement-making, staple leather jackets in brown and black color, or try a bold coat in burgundy and caramel.
Versatile Pea Coat: This outerwear piece doubles as business and casual wear — perfectly suited for accompanying you to any occasion. Whether you pair it with a 3-piece suit or dark blue jeans, you are sure to get compliments wherever you go. Navy, black, and camel color always look great for the occasion, or try the Wool Coat in Saffron by Limitless XL.
Academic-Chic Wool Blazer: Wool is one of the best fabrics to embrace during chilly months. The wool blazer blends casual with sophistication like as seen on the runway at Junya Watanabe. Rock a cool and classy look with a button-down shirt beneath a wool blazer. If you should buy an off-the-rack suit, ensure that the shoulder is perfectly tailored to your frame and not an inch bigger. Same goes for your shirt; remember the aim is to look firm and sturdy. Browse Nordstrom Men’s shop or Ralph Lauren for the best value wool blazer.
Step It Up In Boots: Ditch dress shoes for a classy boot! A boot is a winning fashion accessory anytime, any day, and not just because of their sturdy look. Boots deliver style, quality, and comfort. From the desert to Chelsea, there are numerous designs you can include into your outfit to look super classy. Something that spells matured and sophisticated, like these Williamsburg Chukka Boots from Allen Edmonds.
Classically Cool Denim Jeans: A foundational wardrobe element, jeans are superb for just about any occasion. A selvedge jean is one of the top-notch qualities in the jean class and is the perfect companion to a jacket, blazer, or coat, adding a touch of casual class to your look. To sharpen up your look, tuck your shirt into your trousers and finish with a belt. American Tall offers a great selection of washes for the season, like this Tapered Fit Grey Denim.
Turn Heads in a Turtleneck: The dashing turtleneck separate provides you with many opportunities to let your inner creativity shine through. Style with a denim jacket, blazer, suit, or pea coat. Must-have turtleneck colors for a larger gent are black, gray, brown, navy, chocolate, and cranberry.
Fashion-Forward Fisherman Beanies: Perfect weekend wear! Beanies keep you warm and add a creative sense of fashion to your outlook. Imagine how amazing you’d look in a beanie paired with a dark wash tapered jean, chukka boot, black turtleneck, and double breasted pea coat? Norse projects make the best beanies, get your favorite colors there.
Race-Ready Leather Gloves: Combine a pair of cool-colored leather driving gloves with any of your outfits to keep yourself warm yet looking fresh and sporting. Consider black, brown, and gray, but don’t be afraid to defy the status quo if you love the look of a brighter hue.
