It’s time to pack away the polo shirts, shorts and sandals as the fall weather brings crisp air and brisk winds to the Northeast. With the warm days quickly slipping away, we begin to add warm layers and insulating jackets to our wardrobe staples. To give our readers the inside scoop on what the latest fall trends are as well the must have staples, we reviewed GQ’s men’s Fall fashion tips and share with you the best of the best. From 2016’s most stylish fall accessories to the classics, we tell you where to find them and more importantly – how to wear them.
The Color of the Season Is…
This fall, the color of the season is copper. With its classic beauty and rich warming tones, copper is a great transition from the bright summer hues, to the more understated earthy tones of autumn. Compliment your copper colored clothing with a Bozeman Bison Leather Billfold Wallet. The handmade bison leather will go in stride with your copper collection. Genuine leather wallets are a must have in any season, as they serve to emphasize your style wherever you go.
Learn to Layer the Right Way
When the temperatures start to drop and the weather becomes unpredictable, we begin to add layers to our daily uniform. Looking put together while staying warm can be quite an art form. The key is to eliminate bulk with layers. Luckily, the knitted polo shirt is the layering shirt for the fall, which adds a sophisticated look as well as core insulation. The knitted polo fits nicely over tees and long sleeved shirts while the collar can add a classic touch under jackets and sport coats. GQ suggests solid colors and minimal branding on your knit polo, to maximize versatility with your different outfits. Don’t forget to compliment your layers with the style and simple elegance of a full grain leather belt or cashmere scarf.
The Bomber Jacket is Back
Short in length, but thick with lining, the bomber jacket is the perfect item of clothing to fight off the bitter cold while still looking hot. Sewn on badges and hand knit embroidery will give the jacket your own personal flare and feel. The bright sun still lurks in the autumn months, so complete your bomber jacket look with a fall accessory that will never go out of style; your favorite pair of aviators!
Transition from Summer to Winter with Neckerchiefs
Keep your neck warm and stylish this fall with a cotton or silk neckerchief. This must-have fall accessory is the middle ground between a scarf and a turtleneck, and can add color and class to any outfit. GQ also suggests substituting a bandanna for the same stylish affect.
Have Cold Feet? Warm Up With Fall’s Shoe Trends
An accessory list is not complete without a well-made stylish shoe. This season, Doc Marten-esque shoes are all the rage, so think thick, chunky, rubber soles, like our Colorado Chukka. If you are more of an outdoorsman, hiking boots are the perfect choice to wear with everything from suits to sweats. Traverse this season’s rugged landscape with a stacked style of footwear.
