5 Fall Fashion Trends Every Man Needs to Get Behind

The leaves are falling, the wind is picking up, and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes is floating in the air. You know what that means: it’s time to start looking like you just exploded out of a catalogue full of fall clothes.

There’s no better time to show off your fashion sense like a crisp autumn day. Fall is all about materials, layers, patterns, and deep, rich colors. Basically, you want to become one with that giant oak tree outside of your window, which is ready to shed its bright green leaves.

Catch all of the latest fall trends here:

1. Suede

This is a look that will have women spewing out their scorching hot caramel-mocha-double-whipped-cream lattes. Here, the model is showing off his fall style with a pair of destroyed skinny jeans, suede camel colored ankle boots, a form-fitting black sweater, and a nice tan suede jacket.

Nothing too complex here, but still incredibly sexy.

A light suede jacket is a great way to kick off fall and keep warm as those chillier days and nights approach. They are incredibly easy to pair with your favorite t-shirt and jeans, while giving your outfit an extra flair that displays your style finesse.

2. Leather

Listen to me closely.

Find a great leather jacket and never let it go.

Take care of it, treat it with respect, and love it like it was your own child. Leather jackets are really a personal item that will never go out of style, given that you find a “timeless” one. I know some people that have had the same jacket for 15 years and it doesn’t look a day over 6 months old.

I consider a great leather jacket an investment, plus you can add a few layers underneath it during the winter or keep wearing it year round if you need to. Hell, I wore my leather jacket today in the 90 degree heat, just for fun.

For fall, keep it simple with either a black or tan colored one and remember, the more weathered and worn the jacket looks, the more it’s bound to appear cooler and more expensive.


3. Camel

A camel colored pea coat automatically dresses up any outfit that you are wearing. If you are going to an event that is not exactly casual, but not quite black tie either, this is the perfect look to go for. It shows that you have style, but you are too flashy.

If you’re really looking to turn some heads, pair your pea coat with complementary fall colors. A brown tailored vest with a matching tie is great for work parties or an important meeting. This is a trend that is not going any where soon. It’s probably time to invest in some quality clothes.

4. Denim

Denim is a material that should be made for comfort. A pair of stretchy black skinny jeans and form-fitting white t-shirt paired with a lighter denim jacket is a quick go to. Match this with some nice faded leather boots and you’re good as gold for your day out in the city.

Darker denim is always a bit more stylish. Light blues are great, but now that we’re approaching fall, it’s time to start moving towards more winter-friendly colors. The major key to wearing a Canadian tuxedo is to always make sure that your shirt/jacket is a bit lighter than your pants. Otherwise, you’re going to look like you’re wearing a suit made out of denim, which is disgusting and a total turn off.

With your tan boots, you’ll be ready to jump into a giant pile of fall leaves.

5. Cardigans

Cardigans are the holy grail of fall style. If you don’t have any, rush to your nearest thrift or department store and stock up, because winter is coming.

I love how this look is paired with a nice wool cardigan and a heavy flannel that matches.

Always remember that plaid is easy to mess up. The key is the material and the size of the squares. Stay away from small plaid prints and also oversized ones. You’re looking for that sweet spot that is somewhere in-between.

Here’s another example of a cool cardy that goes perfectly with the rest of this guy’s outfit. This one is a bit more for the modern man, who wants something that he can work comfortably in. A v-neck sweater, collared shirt, pair of dark jeans, and quirky outer layer should do the trick to complete this look.

Either way, any of these looks are great to add to your wardrobe as the seasons begin to change again. Plus, they are all classic styles, which are bound to stay fashionable for years to come.
