Fall is just around the corner, and although it’s arguably the most exciting time of year for men’s clothing, it’s also one of the trickiest to get right. If you struggle to know whether you should be hanging onto your summer look a while longer or jumping ahead to your October outfits, here are three ways to make the transition between seasons a bit smoother.
1. Create outfits that can take you from one context to another. You might be working at the office in the morning, having a business lunch in the afternoon, and then going straight out in the evening for a date. You’re probably not going to carry three different outfits around with you all day, but what you can do is create a look that can be changed up with a jacket and a different pair of shoes, or transformed with some well-placed accessories. Even little details can make a big difference when it comes to shifting the overall vibe.
2. Be prepared for changing weather. Fall can be unpredictable – rainy in the morning, hot and sunny in the afternoon, and then chilly in the evening. A good fall outfit incorporates layers, so that you can remove what you need to in the afternoon, and then add them back in later when the sun starts going down. Choose fabrics that don’t wrinkle easily, so that you always look fresh and clean underneath when you start taking layers off.
3. Get ready to have some fun. Between all your options for layering and mixing up fabrics and textures, you have a lot of room to play around and really find your ideal style niche. Fall is the perfect time to do this! If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a little more of a risk-taker, getting a bit braver with your style choices, this is your big opportunity. Don’t just buy random pieces and hope it all fits together, though – if you need some pointers, your style consultant will happily help get you moving in the right direction. We can show you how to mix and match patterns, colors, and textures to break out of your comfort zone into something more dynamic and infinitely cool.
