It’s time to start switching out those t-shirts for jackets and sandals for boots. With fall just around the corner, here are the 5 staples you’ll want to make sure you have in your closet…

Guys, fall fashion isn’t all about the ladies! Although a lot of men’s items can transfer from season to season, when fall rolls around, the colors get a little darker and the layers get a little heavier. Whether you have these items in your closet already or not, we could all use a refresher on what the must-have items are for fall.  If putting outfits together isn’t your thing, get some inspiration from our fall lookbook to get you started!

Here are the 5 items you should have in your closet for fall…

1. Graphic T-Shirts

Don’t worry – your basic t’s will continue to have their day, but adding a little graphics to your closet will do your fall wardrobe good! Not only is it a fun way to add some detail to your outfit, it’s a fun way to express your personal style. The great thing about this season staple is that they can be worn year round!

2. Stylish Sweaters

Sweaters have always been a must-have for fall, and this upcoming season is no exception. The key is to add a few sweaters to your wardrobe that are out of the ordinary or out of your comfort zone. Whether it’s a new color or print, or an altered silhouette or style, it’s the perfect time to add some flair to your fall wardrobe with a few updated sweaters.

3. Jogger Pants

No, we’re not talking about the pants that you wear running at the gym (although we suppose some of these could maybe serve that purpose). Jogger pants are just a fancy way of saying a silhouette of pants with a draw string waist and elastic ankles. If fashion-forward styles aren’t usually your thing, these may not be for you, but we urge you to step out of your box and try them out! What’s not to love about pants that you can wear on a night out that are just as comfortable as your sweatpants (psst. they do come in a sweatpant version!)? Sounds like a win-win to us!

4. Colored Pants

We know, colored pants aren’t anything new – they’ve been around for quite a while actually, however, they are making a major statement for fall. In colors such as olive, navy, and burgundy, colored pants are a great way to pull together a stylish outfit when you’ve outworn your day-to-day denim.

5. Casual Jackets

Excuse our vague description of a “casual jacket” but there are SO many jackets to choose from this fall, and we just want you to find one that fits your personal style! Although peacoats and top coats commonly come to mind when temps cool down, casual jackets can be added to an outfit for additional warmth and style, and perfect for when the occasion is a little more laid-back. We suggest adding a bomber jacket (or two), military-inspired jacket, and leather jacket to your fall outfit rotation.
