After the relentless heat of summer, it’s hard not to be excited about fall. Especially since it means finally being able to wear more than a T-shirt and chinos so thin they’re practically see-through. So to get you amped up for this gloriously cool (and gloriously stylish) season of layers, here are five outfit ideas that are guaranteed to have you looking sharp all the way until winter.
AN ’80S VIBE FOR BUSINESS CASUAL
Rethink your approach to tailoring by trying a bolder colored blazer, and by mixing high and low with formal trousers and a pair minimalist sneakers.
SOMETHING SLEEK FOR A NIGHT OUT
If you’re looking for an extremely stylish way to mix things up, especially on a chillier evening, switch out your blazer for a sleek wool coat. Then keep everything sharp and minimal underneath.
A SUIT FOR THE OFFICE
When it comes time to suit up for that big meeting, the best fall move is a subtle pattern. It adds a bit of visual texture while still keeping things professional.
SOMETHING FOR THE WEEKEND
When the weekend rolls around, it’s all about being comfortable but still looking good. Go for a colorful hoodie and mix it with a faded denim trucker, chinos, and a cool pair of retro sneakers.
WHEN THE WEATHER GETS DICEY
Fall weather is nothing if not unpredictable, so it’s important to have something you can wear in the cold and rain, but that still looks put-together. A crisp macintosh with a wool cardigan, wool trousers, and sturdy boots is always a solid move.
