Fall colors are usually neutral making it easy to mix and match. Mens fashion for fall is essentially about layering and I find layered looks irresistible. Fall fashion also makes it easier to add a jacket or a sweater for those cooler evenings as the season progresses.
You don't have to break the bank to look fashionable this fall, below are six mens fashion ideas for your fall wardrobe that will also carry you into many season ahead.
Cardigan for fall
Perhaps not your grandfathers cardigan, I'm talking about a different kind of sweater with a contemporary cut and a slimmer look that can be worn to the office or a date. Cardigans for fall are thin enough to be worn beneath a jacket or a dress shirt. It can even be worn over your favorite tee with a pair of jeans.
It's one of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe. Try one made out of light weight merino wool or cashmere and that has a double zipper so you unzip the bottom when you are sitting. And for an extra kick, try a cardigan with small pockets or some sort of patch on the elbows.
Pinstripes are classic. Perfect for formal or more casual occasions, the detailing on pinstriped pants spices up what otherwise might be an ordinary ensemble. It doesn't matter what you go with navy with gray pinstripes, gray with brown pinstripes, or black with any color of pinstripe, they are all good. And for a modern look, try matching them with a fun striped shirt and/or an argyle sweater.
Every designer and manufacturer has come out with some sort striped shirt or another. Just get one. It can be worn independently with jeans, with a suit or under a sweater. Remember, fall is about layering and from bold and thick stripes to thin ones; it's a good look that you will find easy to incorporate into many ensembles.
A cool blazer is definitely a must-have item, and the styles available really give blazers a life of their own. You can find some with patch pockets and/or elbow patches, others with big lapels and double-sided vents, but they are all a revival of retro looks. And don't forget moleskin and corduroy options which can be a less formal look than tweed.
The last few years have seen jeans take a stronger role in the American wardrobe. And it seems every few months a new, high end jeans company pops up. I might add some of the prices these jeans are fetching are quite steep; even The Gap has a high end, pricier line. In terms of color, we've seen everything from dark to light washes, but one thing is for certain--the washed-out, worn-in look is here to stay.
