How To Layer Your Clothes For Cool Weather

The most stylish season of the year is coming up fast.

To get you amped up for this gloriously cool (and gloriously stylish) season of layers, here are five outfit ideas that are guaranteed to have you looking sharp always. 

A Throwback Vibe for Business Casual 

Rethink your approach to tailoring by trying a sweater that looks like a blazer, and by mixing a retro-colored mustard tee and a pair minimalist sneakers.

Something Sleek for a Night Out 

If you're looking for an extremely stylish way to mix things up, especially on a chillier evening, switch out your blazer for a sleek varsity jacket. Then keep everything sharp and minimal underneath.

Something for the Weekend 

When the weekend rolls around, it's all about being comfortable but still looking good. Go for a hoodie and mix it with a faded denim trucker, chinos, and a cool pair of sneakers.

When the Weather Gets Dicey 

Fall weather is nothing if not unpredictable, so it's important to have something you can wear in the cold and rain, but that still looks put-together. A crisp water-repellent blouson with a tee, drawstring trousers, and weather-ready sneakers is always a solid move.

A Suit for the Office 

When it comes time to suit up for that big meeting, go with something classic—then give it a little extra kick. A brighter-than-standard-navy suit will keep things interesting, as will a extra bit of pattern and texture on your tie.
