Men’s Guide to Dressing in Fall

 Mens Guide to Dressing in Fall

The leaves are changing, it’s noticeably colder and you’ve had to put away the flip-flops against your own will.

Yes gentlemen, it’s that time of year again.

Fall shouldn’t involve you running away in fear with your beach things headed on the next flight out to Puerto Vallarta.

EveryGuyed is here to help you embrace all things fall – coats, sweaters, boots and hats shouldn’t be a scary experience.

So, put down that suitcase and let us show you how dressing for fall can be just as enjoyable as a sipping a cold beer on a hot summer day (sorry, we didn’t mean to bring up old memories).

Fall in to Some Comfy Fabrics

Fall means that colder weather is coming, and as much as we hate it too, that means a change in the type of fabric and clothes you’ll be wearing.

Natural woven fabrics like wool, cashmere and flannel are great in keeping the heat in, and you won’t be shivering while waiting to hail a cab.

Look for sweaters, shirts, coat and even shoes that utilize these fabrics. You’ll find that there are a ton of stylish options for you without having to look like you’ve gained 30 pounds from layering.

Avoid synthetics as they don’t do so well at letting your skin breathe.

The Essentials

So now that you know what types of fabrics to shop for, don’t just run out and buy everything in sight. Here are top five essentials that every man should invest in as the leaves fall off those trees.

Wool Jacket

Yes, we know how much it sucks to be wearing a jacket again, but trying to fight off the cold weather by pretending it’s really not fall isn’t going to change the seasons.

Invest in a wool jacket to protect yourself against the frigid elements. Not only will you be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has to throw at you, but you’ll look stylish as well.

Cashmere or Merino Wool Sweater

We suggest getting a sweater in either of these fabrics. Or both.

Why? Not only are they super comfortable, fashionable and come in a variety of styles, these fabrics are famous for their quality and warmth.

Trust us when we say you won’t be sacrificing style in these sweaters.

A Great Pair of Boots

Probably the most depressing part of fall is having to put away your sandals and strap on a pair of boots to keep your feet from freezing in the cold.

As much as you may want to wear the flip flops one more time, we promise boots don’t have to be a frightening experience.

Because you don’t have to worry about snow and slush just yet, you can get away with a great pair of leather or suede boots.

We know how important looking stylish is to you and lucky for you, there are a ton of great options out there waiting for you to try them on.


Flannel, cashmere, and wool – the great thing about scarves is that they come in a multitude of fabrics, sizes and colorways for you to coordinate your outfit with.

Wearing a scarf will not only keep you warm but also is a great accent piece to what could be considered a drab outfit.

Wool Suit

Let’s face it – your regular suit just isn’t going to cut it when the cold wind strikes, so invest in a wool suit to keep the frigid weather at bay.

Don’t worry about where in the world you’re going to find a wool suit because most designers and brand name stores are just as worried about the weather as you are.


  • Prepping for fall means dressing for fall – sticking to fabrics like wool, cashmere and flannel will not only keep you warm when Mother Nature strikes, but will also preserve your style.
  • We suggest five fall favorites: a wool-blend coat, a cashmere or merino wool sweater, a great boot, a scarf and a wool-blend suit in order to prepare you for the cold weather.


Still worried about the upcoming fall weather? Wanting to run away and hide from the bitter cold? Let us know how we can help.

What's on your mind?

  1. Balancing warmth and style is probably one of the hardest things to do moving through Fall and into the colder winter months. Some great tips here to keep on top of both this year. Can’t wait to start layering. Keep the tips coming, can’t wait for the Winter suggestions

  2. Great site agreed. Layering is essential to looking stylish. I love fall as you can start to show your true fashion colors with a multitude of styles!

  3. You forgot about quilted jackets. Polyester on the outside, nylon on the inside, they’re really good for keeping the wind out.

    No point in putting the effort into layers if the wind is going to put that effort to waste.

  4. I enjoy the descriptions of all of the fall accessories, but I would also appreciate some pictures! The thing I want to see more than anything else is changes to the previous trends, I want to stay up to date.
