Men: Your Fall Fashion Needs Upgrading
By Brandi Goodman
Fashion isn't just about looking good. You need clothes that will keep you safe and protected from the weather as well. Too many men in particular continue to wear the same fashion styles from summer throughout the fall simply because they enjoy the way they look. They're not actually protective as needed. Men's fall fashion choices need upgrading for improved well-being.
Get a Layered Look
The fall weather can be cold and require a jacket. It can also change quickly and get rather warm. Having a layered look is the perfect choice because you can take pieces off when you need or add them back in when required. A T-shirt underneath a button-up and even a light jacket is a great -- and practical -- fall choice.
Choose Textured Fabrics
A light, cotton shirt may work well when it's hot out, but it isn't a good choice for the fall. It's better to choose textured fabrics that tend to keep you warm. Suede, velvet, and wool are common options. Pick a solid color so it isn't too busy and distracting.
Pick a Pair of Boots
Autumn is a great time for hiking. You'll also be more likely to slip and fall when the leaves start dropping and the rain makes them wet and slippery. Having on a pair of solid boots is ideal because they will keep you steady on your feet and make it easier to walk through any terrain. You can hike or walk in them easily. Sandals that were worn in summer will no longer work.
Find Thermal Underwear
You can wear some of your favorite summer choices as long as you find yourself thermal underwear. These will keep your body warm without you having to wear outer layers for that job. Most men don't break these out until the truly cold winter months, but they'll suffice in the fall with some light layers on top.
Try a Vest
A vest is also a good fall fashion accessory because it can be placed over the top of a long-sleeve shirt. It won't add a lot of heat everywhere but can keep the upper part of you feeling warm and comfortable. A button-up paired with a vest and tie is a more business appropriate look if you have to work for the day. Choose a cotton shirt and vest with no tie to make it more casual for outdoors.
Keep your personal fashion sense intact but still do what you can to make some upgrades that are more fitting for the weather. You don't just want to look good. You want to be safe and protected in the cooler air as well. It's better for your well-being.
