In fact, we could all probably use a quick style pick-me-up.
Today, we’ve rounded up 7 easy-to-use items that will help you get your style on point for Fall.
Before you add new items, get rid of the old
First, we have to share something that makes developing your style easier. Edit that damn closet, man.
Every season (so every 4 months) it’s a good idea to do an edit of your wardrobe. Go through everything and if you have not worn something in the last 4 months, get rid of it.
We suggest creating 3 piles.
One pile is for donations/sell
One pile should be trash
One pile should be for short-term storage.
In the short-term storage pile, you’d put items that are no longer needed for this season.
For example, you’d want to store your tanks, swim trunks, and flip-flops in this pile. Only take items out of this storage if you’re traveling somewhere warm.
Seriously, it seems like a hassle at first glance, but not only does it declutter your wardrobe, you might able to make a few bucks in the process.
Now it’s time to add some new items to your closet, which in turn, will spruce up your look.
Here are just a few things to help you get started
The Rubber Boots
First, we always suggest buying items that are stylish yet functional (although it’s alright to buy a few “wow” items too).
For instance, these awesome rubber boots are pretty damn cool and functional. We like them because they are easy to put on and even easier to slip-off. Perfect for those sudden days of rain and slush puddles.
The Duffle Bag
Second, we all need a solid bag.
Whether you’re running around the streets of New York or driving from Downtown LA to Santa Monica, having a solid duffle bag makes life easier. We’re huge fans of a bag company called Packs Project. Their products are beyond durable, stylish, and functional.
Plus, they are designed to hold an ample amount of items.
Until now, we’ve always thought an umbrella closes downwards. It’s time to meet this super cool new inverse umbrella.
Not only does it help you avoid spilling water when you close it, but it’s perfect for getting in and out of a car when there’s a sudden downpour.
Plus, the handle allows for more functionality and it’s pretty darn durable for those sudden gusts of wind.
The Shearling Bomber Jacket
Another key point to highlight is that Fall brings about cooler temperatures.
For those of you in the North Eastern part of the U.S., some days can drastically drop in temperature. That’s why it’s important to arm yourself with something that will keep you warm.
This jacket is just flat out cool. Wear with a t-shirt or layer with a button-down.
The Wool Coat
For those other crisp cool days, layering a key. We suggest reaching for a lightweight wool coat.
Buying a light color will allow you to easily dress it up or down. A key feature to look for are pockets. This way, you can easily dip those hands out of that artic air.
Plus, it allows for easy access to your phone.
The Cable Knit Sweater
Since Fall wardrobe styling is all about layering, you’ll need a solid men’s cable knit sweater to layer with. This stylish cable knit sweater looks ultra expensive, but it’s approachable in price.
Pair with a white collared button-down shirt or wear over a t-shirt and sneakers for a more casual look.
The Pin Striped Men’s Pant
Our last Fall pick is the men’s pinstriped pant.
Many guys ask us for an easy way to add some style to their look.
Dude, look no further than a pinstriped pant. Wear it just as you would wear your favorite pair of jeans.
The structured look of this pant contrasted to a casual sneaker gives any outfit a cool edge.
