According to Kris: Fall into Fashion Part 2

Good morning stylers! I promised four articles this week and I’m a man of my word. This one is more for my gents but don’t worry ladies. I’ve got some great tips that you can pass onto your guy friends.

With Fall here and the fair in town, nothing puts me in a better mood. There’s a simple explanation. For us fashion-forward folk, Fall is an opportunity to step our style game up in more ways than one. The cooler temperatures allow for layering without all the sweating. It’s a lot more fun than trying to wear the bare minimum of fabric so you don’t melt into a puddle in the August heat. But there’s more to it than just being able to throw on something other than a Hawaii collar shirt (to be fair this tread not going anywhere just yet). The other great thing about Autumn is that you get to embrace all the styles the fashion world has to offer. And it’s a lot! This men’s Fall fashion essentials guide is meant to serve as only a reference and is based on my personal opinions.

Leather Jacket

Nothing screams badass like a well-fitting leather jacket and a pair of dark denim pants. It’s the definitive backbone of the rugged Americana style, with fashion icons like James Dean and Brad Pitt at its forefront.

Silk Shirts

Two of the biggest things happening this fall? Camp-collar shirts and pajama shirts, both of the long-sleeve variety. I’m personally a fan of the pajama shirt, and I can’t wait to try the full look.

Fleece jacket

It’s cozy, comfy, and predicted to be more popular than ever this fall.

The Iconic Rugby Shirt

Pretend you’re a Kennedy kid and wear one of these to throw the ball around after Thanksgiving dinner and pose for family photos. I promise this is one style shirt you want regret.

Leather Belt

Fall means it’s time to hang up the flimsy canvas belts you may have been using for the summer. I used to wear cheap belts from department stores until I switched to ones made of higher quality leather and more durable hardware.

Pleated Chinos

If you’re anything like me, you probably swore off pleats sometime in the last decade. I was done with them after I graduated and I threw mine away. But something interesting is happing. There’s a new light at the end of that tunnel, so you should think about changing course. The pleated chinos are more flattering than ever.

Denim Western

The yeehaw agenda isn’t going anywhere. And you can be down for trying this trend without looking like a lost tacky cowboy. Everyone looks dope in a western shirt.
