A Fool Proof Guide to Fall Style

MODEL: Josh Bennicoff

The chill in the air beckons you to bring out your cold-weather bests.

Here are the jackets, sweaters, and other essentials that you must have for the coming months.

Changing Patterns

Farmhouse plaids and checks are easy choices for dressing this season. Go with an unexpected pattern such as tartan to deliver more attitude to your ensemble.

Dress for the Weekend

If the day calls for staying in and taking things easier than usual, reach for fleece joggers and a long-sleeved cotton tee.

Color Coded

There is a time and place for everything—and that includes color even after summer has hung up its hat. Reds, yellows, and greens look their best when shown in their autumnal shades.

Take on the Cold

Made of supercompact nylon and polyester fabric, this 100 percent animal-free puffer coat is just the thing you need when an arctic freeze threatens your weekend jaunt to the countryside.

Minimalist Tendencies

A pared-down top with tailored performance pants is proof positive that sometimes, less is indeed more.

Sweater Weather

You don’t have to commit to an all-argyle sweater; a smattering of this print goes a long way towards making your outfit fall-ready. Temper it further with a recycled-fleece vest in a solid shade.
