The spooky season October brings has creeped up on us, and so has the crisp fall air. We are starting to soak in that all too familiar fall scent, with the trees losing its leaves and changing colors from orange and brown.

Autumn is probably the best season to try different techniques, like layering and incorporating season-appropriate pops of color. Obviously this season is the peak for over-the-knee boots and sweater dresses, but one thing that tends to be overlooked is men’s fashion.

So instead of going on and on about the ins and outs of corduroy mini skirts, lets dive into how innovative men’s fashion can get at this time of year:

Denim denim denim

Denim never gets old — especially a good denim jacket. They’re the perfect balance of comfortability and warmth, all the while being lightweight and great layering pieces. Most denim jackets are usually inexpensive and accessible, and they add a nice touch to just about any outfit. It’s an easy item to dress your outfit up or down — and it’s not just about the jackets. You could never go wrong with a solid pair of jeans. Ask risky as it sounds, try rocking a denim-on-denim look for a ’90s-inspired vibe.

Trousers/smart pants

This trend opens the opportunities to try something new. In mixing elements between menswear and streetwear, smart pants provide the best medium. It opts for you to experiment with different cuts: cropped, white, etc., as well as a chance to play with patterns and colors, such as plaid and shades of olive green.


If you are looking to invest in one type of footwear for the fall, a good pair of boots are the way to go. They pair well with almost everything, and with such a variety to choose from, you will find your perfect pair. The most popular one (you know, the one you have probably already heard of)  is the classic Chelsea boot. They instantly elevate a look and offer a chance to incorporate texture.


Flannels are exactly what come to mind when you think of fall. Aesthetically speaking, they are low-risk. You want to let the shirt do all the work, so style it with neutral colors that complement your shirt’s palette. There is one for everyone, depending on what material and different color tones you are looking for. 


Hoodies are a definite must for the fall. You can create a wide variety of looks with just one hoodie. They are accessible just about anywhere, and they can help you go from making a statement in a look, to becoming surprisingly unassuming when layered in a look. 

Each and every one of these staples are essential to have in your wardrobe. You can create an infinite amount of outfits with them, and these pieces give you perfect elements to find that happy medium between trendy and wearable. Experiment and mix louder pieces with muted garments, and always remember: Less is more.
