While we’ll miss the sunshine and longer days of summer, we’re not bummed the season is coming to a close. Autumn in New York means crisp weather and more layers—meaning more ways to step your style game up. Business Insider recently posted 8 fall style trends every guy should know about, and we’re pretty excited about their picks. Especially #2—can you guess which Italian shoes BI picked as a fall must-have?
As your summer glow fades away, feel free to exchange your skin damage for some new tan pieces in your wardrobe. We suggest casual pieces—a sweater, some chinos, or a parka jacket. This color isn’t right for formal wear, so leave the tan suit on the rack.
2. Chelsea boots
It’s finally time to break out one of our favorites—the Chelsea boot. While we’ve been talking about the timeless style of the Chelsea for a bit, BI claims they are “back in a big way.” To us, they never went away.
Sometimes you don’t have to sacrifice function for a trend. Embrace the turtleneck for its warmth and comfort against the chilly autumn winds. Furthermore, they transfer seasons easily as a great layering piece in the winter.
Backpacks are great for weekend trips, but when it comes to getting your necessities to the office while donning your best fall suit, you need a grown up bag. Carry your tablet, headphones, and documents in a sleek leather briefcase. Check out our collection of men’s bags here.
Not just for lumberjacks and hipsters, wearing plaid is a simple way to add some interest to your outfit without looking like you’re trying too hard. Buy a few in various color patterns to layer over t-shirts. This look pairs well with jeans and your Chelsea boots.
6. Tech accessories
Maybe this one isn’t exactly seasonal… but as long as you’re updating your wardrobe, you might as well treat yourself to a new pair of headphones or a cool laptop sleeve.
7. Textured knits
Chilly weather doesn’t have to suck when you get to dress like a Nordic fisherman. A chunky, knitted pullover is a great option for weekend casual wear. Buy yours in basic neutral colors and let the texture do the talking. Not really into the wool sweater game? Knit scarves are both on-trend and comfortable.
8. Updated outerwear
The best thing about fall dressing is definitely picking out a new coat. This season men are trading in their basic black pea coats for styles in more non-traditional colors. Silhouettes are oversized, which you can balance out with accessories like that chunky scarf you got.
