Fall begins next week which means you should start shopping for new clothes if you haven’t already. There are certain wardrobe essentials for fall and winter that should already be in your wardrobe, though. If they’re not, you should get them this season. These items are not trendy seasonal items but classic, timeless items that will last you for a while. Today I’m going to list some of those items.
White V Neck T Shirt
This is more of a general wardrobe essential rather than just a fall and winter one. Everyone should have a white v neck t shirt in their wardrobe. It can be worn alone with a pair of jeans and any color shorts for a casual look or you can wear it with a blazer and some jeans or chinos for a dressy casual look. Regardless, this item works well with many outfits and will last you a while.
Dark Wash Jeans
Dark was jeans are fall and winter wardrobe essentials because they are the dressiest looking of all jeans. Dark wash jeans can, of course, be worn casually with a sweater or you can put a peacoat or a blazer on with a pair of leather shoes for a dressier look. Your jeans, as I’ve said in my guide to looking sharp while dressing casually, should be slim fit, slim straight, or straight fit jeans.
I will mostly be wearing leather shoes this fall and winter. Wearing leather shoes instead of sneakers can make many casual outfits a lot dressier. All you have to do is wear the correct shoes for what you’re wearing. For example, if I’m wearing dark wash jeans and a v neck sweater, I would wear loafers. If I was wearing a blazer or a peacoat, I would wear bluchers.
White Button Up Shirt
A white button up shirt is another general wardobe essential but you can get more use out of it during the fall and winter. Rather than just putting one on with a pair of chinos, you can layer a white button up shirt with just about anything. You can wear one under a v neck sweater with a pair of jeans and some loafers or you can wear it under a v neck sweater with a pair of chinos.
V Neck Sweater
V neck sweaters are a wardrobe essential because they work well with both casual and dressy outfits, as mentioned above. They work with just about anything. You can wear a v neck sweater with jeans and some slip on shoes or with a white button down shirt, jeans, a peacoat, and some bluchers.
Not everyone likes to wear scarfs, but a scarf can give your outfit a dressier look and can be a way to give more style to your look. You could pair any color scarf with a black coat or sweater and matching gloves and it will give your outfits a dressier look.
Leather gloves are fall and winter wardrobe essentials because they will, like a scarf, give your outfit a dressier look. Leather gloves shouldn’t be worn with casual outfits like a sweater, jeans, and loafers. They should be worn with dressy casual outfits or dress clothes. Leather gloves go best when you’re wearing a coat like a peacoat, overcoat, or top coat. Also, make sure they match the leather of your belt and shoes.
While most people just wear jackets, you should buy a coat to give your outfits a dressier look. Putting a coat on top of a sweater or button up shirt will make almost any outfit look dressier. You could wear a peacoat with a v neck sweater, jeans, and bluchers or a top coat with a blazer, button up shirt, jeans, and bluchers.
Those are the men’s wardrobe essentials that you should be getting this season. There are more items you could get, but these are the most essential for a dressy look.
