It’s that time of year when our shorts start getting phased out and our sweaters reluctantly make their way back into our daily routines. Fall is creeping up on us and it is time to consider the inevitable wardrobe changes it will bring. To help you out, we rounded up the 25 most important items to look for this season so that you can start your day with one less thing to worry about. If you have these fall style essentials, getting dressed in the morning couldn’t be easier. Everything you see here works well together or on its own. These are some of the best out there currently—but many are also classics you can keep around for a while. What’s more, you can find them at all different price points to satisfy your individual sartorial needs.
White Dress Shirt
You probably already have a selection of white shirts. Well, fall is a great time to refresh as summer probably wreaked havoc on those armpits. (Pro tip: Wear deodorant NOT antiperspirant to keep yellow arm pits at bay.)
Marlon Brando, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen-They all had their signature leather jackets. They always work, they never look bad, and the last forever. If you don’t have one, get one for fall. You’ll be a badass in no time
This is a great option for when you need something that looks proper but is still incredibly comfortable. A rubber sole on a leather boot is the answer. Seriously, this boot goes with just about anything.
These days, we are busier than ever with work, family and a social life. So it makes more sense to get all we need together in one place. You need a bag that works for the office, out on the town—and hitting the gym in between.
By now, you should own your suit basics; Blue, Gray, Khaki. So it’s time to invest in one with a little more personality. A patterned suit will allow you to step up your style without stepping out of your comfort zone. Don’t worry, you don’t have to go crazy, just enjoy something a little different this fall.
Double Monk Shoe
The double monk comes and goes in popularity but it never goes away. Invest in a good pair and let them take your basic suit and makes it less… Basic.
This is to fall what the khaki trench is to spring. This versatile staple works with just about everything. Don’t let the formal nature of it scare you. It looks good as hell with beat up jeans and sneakers. You’ll get compliments, trust me.
