How to Kick Off Fall with Style

For most, fall is the best time of the year.  The temperature cools down to a comfortable level, the air picks up a soft, rich aroma, and the landscape is painted with vibrant colors.  Not to mention, it’s probably the most opportune time to show off your style.  Layering, warm tones and lightweight jackets compliment the cooler weather.  Although there are different wardrobes for different climates around the country, there are a few items that should always be in your closet, come fall.

1. Cardigan

What was first hailed as a women’s wardrobe staple, has quickly gained ground among men’s fashion.  Comfortable, practical and easy to layer, cardigans provide the ultimate style without thinking too hard about what to wear for the day.  Try throwing on a v-neck t-shirt underneath and accessorize with your favorite watch.

2. Suede Jacket

What’s great about fall weather is that you can layer if you’re cold, but don’t need so much bulk like in the winter.  A suede jacket might be the perfect addition to your wardrobe if you’re looking for something to throw on running out the door.  Neutral colors are really in style and compliment any skin tone.

3. Corduroys and Moleskine Pants

Corduroys are perhaps the most comfortable pants you can wear while still looking dapper.  It’s time to ditch the linen shorts as a cooler front quickly approaches. 

4. Stylish Lace-up Boots

Shoes are an important part of any outfit.  Lately, combat boots have been making a come back and I’ll admit that they look great paired with most anything.  You can find a distressed brown leather pair to give your outfit that urban feel, or even try grabbing a black pair to dress more formal.  When you add up all these items together, you get the perfect outfit to start your fall out right.
