Varsity Inspired Fall Styling

Take A Cue From The Ivy Leaguers:

Polo University Collection by Polo Ralph Lauren

Nothing says Fall in New York like a classic varsity inspired look. When

putting a vintage inspired look together, don’t be afraid to mix colors

and patterns…the look should feel effortlessly cool! A varsity jacket is

the perfect piece to ground this type of look. I love the details across the

sleeves and chest on this one from Polo Ralph Lauren, perfect to pair

with a great patchwork sweatpant (this pair is also Polo Ralph Lauren…

and beyond comfortable!), and thrown on top of a preppy Oxford

shirt / crewneck combo. (keep in mind that you’ll want to go with more

neutral, chill colors for your sweatshirt and Oxford shirt to keep the look

chic and stylish). For accessories it’s all about a classic pair of cream

sneakers, a vintage watch & timeless sunglasses.

Cashmere Crewneck: The Ultimate Fall Staple

The One Piece You Can’t Live Without

With Summer temps fading away and crisp Fall days ahead, it’s time to stock up on the classic essentials that will take from Fall through Winter & beyond. This cashmere crewneck sweater from Uniqlo is a piece I can not live without. (If you follow me on Insta – you are all well aware of my crazy obsession with Uniqlo lol) Perfectly cozy for cool fall nights and chilly winter days, yet breathable and light for when the sun peaks, this bad boy will not let you down. One of my favorite ways to wear this wardrobe staple is paired back with other classics (think stretch selvedge jeans, a sharp striped shirt, and a chic pair of slippers). For something more sporty, try pairing this baby with a great pair of black joggers and a killer white sneaker. As much as us New Yorkers love a black moment (trust me you’ll want this in black too), it’s available in a rainbow of other colors, linked here for you guys.

Transitioning to Fall: Denim & Mustard Tone...

Nodding To Fall With Denim & Color

While the temps may be steamy here in New York, my mind is racing with thoughts of chunky sweaters & chelsea boots for Fall. Until then, it’s time to start nodding to Fall with great denim & autumn-trend tones even while it’s still warm out there. For denim, it’s all about a vintage, 90’s style wash like these skinnies from Abercrombie. Not only is the wash perfectly aged, but the fit is insane and contain just the right amount of stretch. For shirting, opt for classic oxford-cloth shirts in Fall-ready colors, one of the biggest trends of the season being mustard. This one from Abercrombie is perfectly washed with a killer fit. Throw a varsity-inspired sweater around your waist or shoulders for a little hint at layering (you can always throw in your bag when the temps rise throughout the day).

Fuzzy Fall Layers & Chelsea Boots

Sherpa Hoodies: Fall Off-Duty Favorite

Fall is all about great textures and awesome layering hacks. For as much as I love to layer, it’s nice to opt for one killer piece to keep warm while looking cool. This sherpa hoodie is perfect to throw over a t-shirt and pair to your favorite ripped jeans for a perfect weekend look. (style note, it’s a bit chunky so I wouldn’t wear under a slim jacket or else you may find yourself looking a bit ‘puffy’…stick to a great puffer when layering with outerwear) Stick to your favorite gum-sole chelsea boots and you instantly have a look thats approved for pumpkin-spice, whiskey infused anything.

Puffer Vests: Keep It Simple & Stylish

Puffer Vests: The Key To Clean & Functional Layering

Layering for Fall doesn’t have to be overly complicated, enter the puffer vest. My rule for Fall layering is to keep things clean, simple & functional. With temperatures jumping all over the place lately, I always suggest to layer functionally, making it easy to shed a layer or two without sacrificing your Autumn look. I’ve partnered with Old Navy to show you guys how I’m styling some of their newest Fall pieces. Start off by opting for a classic crewneck sweatshirt and killer pair of olive jeans. Not only will these pieces stand on their own when un-layered but they serve as a perfect canvas to start adding pieces. Throw on a classic denim jacket for a look that’s perfectly rugged yet pulled together. To top it off, I’ve added this puffer vest (which happens to be the perfect shade of maroon) with a great slim fit which will keep you from looking like the Michelin man when layered.

Buffalo Check You Can Wear Right Now

Buffalo Check: The Heritage Pattern That Is A Must-Have

With morning and evening temperatures sitting pretty in the low 60’s lately, it’s time to start thinking about how to kick off a Fall look while being temperature friendly. This kick-ass buffalo plaid fleece jacket from TopMan is perfect for a brisk walk to and from work while the temps are still crisp. (Super easy and fluffy to throw in your bag and rock a monochromatic look for your lunch break when the temps are too hot). I have a feeling this piece is probably going to sell out quickly so grab it now and wear all the way through Winter with a rugged boot and beanie.

Leather Jackets: Splurge Vs. Steal

When Fall rolls around, I instantly start to pull out the leather (and faux leather) jackets in my closet. A proper fitting leather jacket will prove to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe from these early Fall days, until the beginning of Spring. A great leather jacket used to a lot of saving or whipping out the credit card, but with the countless fast fashion brands stepping up the trend game, a killer leather jacket (not real leather obviously) can be yours for under $100. I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for under $100 (The one I am wearing above is this one from Forever21Men) as well as some splurge worthy jackets if you’re looking for real leather or to make an investment. The rest of this outfit is below, btw! x – Preston

How To Wear Cargo Pants Men

When deciding what to wear during the tricky in-between season time, my rule is to keep things classic. Rugged staples like denim work shirts and slim cargo pants are perfect for the end of Summer into the begining of Fall. The cargo (in old school olive) looks totally seasonable when paired back to a great pair of sandals and can carry you right into cooler weather with boots and a chunky sock. When looking for a denim shirt, you’ll want to make sure the authentic detailing is there. Pearl snap fronts, non-button collar, and stitching details are key when putting this look together.
