Although the pandemic isn’t entirely behind us yet, daily life is slowly returning to normal. Are you still working from home? Will you be returning to the office? Does your job require you to travel to meet with clients or suppliers? Whatever your professional situation, fall is fast approaching, which means it’s time to switch over to your fall wardrobe. If you want to create a look for the season that’s on trend, here’s an overview of some of the most current warm clothing styles for men.
1. Leather clothing and accessories
Leather continues to be a staple of the modern man’s wardrobe. It’s a durable and versatile material that can last a lifetime. You can easily transform your outfit from sporty to chic depending on the cut and style of the leather garment (pants, coat) or accessory (shoes, belts) you choose to wear. Black, cognac and navy leather are great options for any season.
2. Sweaters and cardigans with geometric patterns
Patterned clothing has been in style for a few seasons, and geometric patterns have been trending since last summer. When it comes to sweaters and cardigans, bold shapes, stripes and designs are all the rage. At Ernest, you can also find simple, timeless styles that can go with just about anything.
3. Natural and organic shades
It's no surprise that earthy tones and muted shades are in this season. You can rest easy knowing that traditional fall colours like beige, brown, forest green and burnt orange are here to stay. You can opt for a chic monochromatic look or incorporate one of these hues as an accent colour.
Fall tends to get a bad rep for being a dull, grey and bland season. However, in contrast to the neutral colours that are popular this year, red is in the spotlight. If you want to turn heads, pair this vibrant hue with a sporty blazer, comfortable sweater or casual shirt.
5. Sweater vests
This fall, seater vests are back and better than ever with a variety of styles to choose from, including classic, loose and fitted options. At Ernest, we’re keeping things classy with our standard button-down styles. This statement piece can be worn under a blazer or alone with a nice pair of jeans or chinos. If you’re looking for something a little different, visit one of our stores to find the perfect sweater vest to complete your outfit.
6. Turtlenecks and funnel necks
Turtleneck and funnel neck sweaters are must-have, cold-weather fashion pieces. They can be worn alone, under a blazer or with a shacket (a cross between a sweater and a jacket) for a more casual look. Since these sweaters are readily available this season, you can choose from a multitude of colours and materials to make your outfit come to life.
Although giant floral patterns are still popular in men's fashion, the return of fall means that the urban lumberjack look is trending. That’s right, plaid is back. Classic plaid or checked pieces are the way to go. This timeless pattern has made its way onto casual shirts, blazers and suits in 2021.
9. The casual yet put-together look
Wow your colleagues with your chic yet laid-back style. Today’s fashion is all about understated style and comfort. Pair a fitted blazer or dress suit with a T-shirt or turtleneck sweater to create a casual yet put-together look.
