Trying to figure out what to wear this fall doesn’t have to be daunting. Our style guide will help you bring your looks together.
If summer is all about showcasing how great you look without putting on a lot of clothing, fall becomes showing off what you can do with your wardrobe.
We can all always use a little inspiration when the temperatures drop. Finding fall staples to wear – regardless of whether they’re already in your wardrobe or you’ve got to add a few pieces, can be a daunting task.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way.
Pairing the pants you used to put on every single day with new items you’ve splurged on is a great way to refresh an attire you feel you’ve over-worn.
How about we take a risk, play with a few fashion trends, and have fun with your fall outfit this season.
What To Wear This Fall
All the fall outfit inspiration you’ll ever need in 2020!
You can never go wrong with the neutral fit for fall. Go ahead and combine your oversized gray suit with a white tee and your simple sneakers.
You can opt to buy pleat front pants and pair them with a matching blazer to maximize this look.
You can also choose to replace the white tee with a graphic tee with sneakers or black boots.
Any of the combinations are a great match made in sartorial heaven!
Bid farewell to a chilly chest with these puffy vests. Featuring a laidback exterior and soft interior, you can style up with puffer vests for almost any occasion.
You can opt to stick to dark shades such as black, charcoal, or gray for a neutral outfit. If you’re looking to feel a little adventurous, stir things up with red, blue, or even baby pink.
Complete the style with a long-sleeved shirt, jacket, or a jumper.
Among the most flattering outfits is a sweater, and the striped sweaters are no exception. You can choose an oversized design or something fine.
This season, mix and match your outfit with contrasting shades like blue, red, or the traditional dark hues such as navy, burgundy, or even green.
Striped sweaters allow you to try out layering, such as adding a button-down to your ensemble and allowing the sleeves to hang loose beneath the knitwear.
Bright Blue Hues
Regardless of the temperature, be sure to look hotter than ever in a splash of bright blue.
As the Pantone color of the year, bright blue is making waves throughout the streets. You don’t have to wear an entire outfit of this shade.
Instead, stick to hints of it in your sleeves, accessories, or even footwear.
The look will lighten your ensemble, mood, and give an exciting dimension of an ample wardrobe.
Bold Patterned Pants
If you thought that this trend is only for the disco, you’re wrong! You can wear this look anywhere.
Interestingly, there are no limits to wearing bold patterns. You can opt for simple tie-dye or an intricate graphic print.
Here, it’s either you go big or go home. This season, you can try adding a pair of bell-bottoms for a little 70’s throwback.
Longline Leather Coats
You can choose to take it back to the ’90s by staying warm in a longline leather coat this fall.
These essentials offer a great way to look stylish without going overboard. Dark shades are perfect for guys who love sci-fi films.
There are plenty of different lapel sizes and colors. If you’re looking to experiment, why not find something in camel color?
Try regular and oversized fits. Choose a size that fits with your body type.
Oversized Puffer Jackets
Fall is a season to stay warm. So, how about sticking to only one half of your body?
While these outfits are large and in charge, they look great on everyone.
Choose a design that hits right at your knees or just below your hips. It provides a new dimension to your outfit.
If the military-style is your thing, stand at attention!
You can wear vests over your outfit to give an instant hit of power and an excellent polish on your look.
Choose various style options with bold patterns, pockets, or even zips. If you want to play it safe, stick to shades of khaki, green, or brown.
All things leather outfit
Nothing beats a style with leather, leather, and more leather.
This season, dare to wear an all-leather outfit to confirm your fashion credentials. Three seasons ago, leather jumpsuits appeared on the runway, and we all wondered whether guys would opt for a much constricting look.
You don’t have to wear leather from head-to-toe. You can rock a motorcycle jacket, shirt, accessories, and more.
Wrapping it up
This year’s fall confirms two things in the fashion world – the return of suiting and the end to streetwear.
The functional outwear for spring 2020 is hanging around for fall. Men will shift to cargo pants and pocket-heavy pieces with tailored pants and quilted nylon vests.
Is the streetwear on the verge of extinction?
The above style guide proves the featured trends have slowly made itself a reality for the past few seasons, and things are no different this fall.
We’re witnessing a strong comeback of tailoring, oversized suits; top Black-owned designers are also evolving and getting their long-overdue recognition.
