Fabulous Fall: 3 Great Looks for the Fierce & Fabulous

Can you believe that it’s nearly fall? High school football has begun, and in a few short weeks we will be enjoying games while bundled up against the chill, cocoa in one hand and our cell phones in the other. The season of harvest festivals, apple picking, and yes, pumpkin-flavored EVERYTHING is soon upon us. As I look out the windows here at work and see the shades of browns and greens beginning to change, I’m excited for cooler temperatures that open up the days to so many more possibilities.  

As leaves change colors and scatter to the ground, we’re given the chance to begin anew new. We don’t have to wait for the start of a new year to tackle that one adjustment we keep talking about. We can just simply take the first step and make it happen, from new jobs to new relationships and everything in between.

We can even take this new season to help us out of a personal rut, whether it be taking the same road every day to work or wearing dark, boring clothing every day. I admit that I have fallen into the trap of wearing dark colors because it is “slimming.” However, I’ve been making an effort to actually include color in my wardrobe. Thankfully there are some amazing pieces in this year’s fall collections!

One of my favorite trends this fall is a nod to the pumpkin-flavored-everything trend: gorgeous shades of oranges, warm browns reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg, and cool creams, all reminding us of the bounty of fall. Earthy tones, like this wonderful top by Vince Camuto, gently brings us down from the bright and poppy colors of summer.

For those of us not quite ready to give in to the season of change, softer, muted tones of summer is reflected in these pieces by Rachel Pally and Steve Madden. Add in great accessories by Kendra Scott, unstructured bags of soft, supple leathers, and polished booties to add strut to your stride, and you’re ready for a fabulous fall.

Slipper Into Something Cozy

If you're standing on wood or tile floors in your house this time of year, your feet can get dang cold. Personally speaking, I despise wearing socks after a long day of work or on weekends. Like pants, it feels constricting, unwarranted and unnatural when you’re in the privacy of your own home. However, as my mother-in-law and leading researchers point out, frigid feet can increase your risk of catching a cold or nasty flu.

As an alternative to itchy and thick, wooly socks, I prefer the ultra soft and uber comfortable feel of a house shoe. Unlike the days or Ward Cleaver, slipper brands have done an extraordinary job creating more aesthetically pleasing designs and styles.

You can expect incredible cushioned support with Tempur-Pedic’s TEMPUR insole or an Acorn EVA heel wedge. Today, you’ll find updated silhouettes in a bevy of colors and materials, such as leather, wool and tweed. L.B. Evans goes one step further by even implementing elk and deer in its line of premium leisure footwear.

3 Must-Have Men's Fall Styles

Autumn is by far and away my favorite season to dress. Although summer shorts, tees and complementing shades can look extremely crisp and classy, it’s just not for me. Fall styling, on the other hand, is much more refined, sleek and smart, as there are no limitations to layering wardrobes. From knit sweaters, button-ups, vests and jackets to dark denim and colored chinos, you’re guaranteed to look handsomely rugged and seasonally on trend.

Fashionable clothing is undoubtedly key to a well-polished outfit; however, the sophisticated gent should never forget three basic accessories: boots, belts and bags. One by one let’s talk about what makes each of these pieces distinct, which will help you achieve a top-down, fashion-forward outfit that’ll have you walking the streets in confidence.

I’ve long been a sucker for a well-crafted, burnished boot to kick up the leaves and get me from point A to point B. Practical, durable and comfortable, ankle boots are a fall wardrobe staple that can be paired with any outfit, regardless of where the day takes you.

For example, if I’m in a more rough and rugged mood, the Dune London Simon suits my style well; however, if I’m trying to blend relaxed with dapper, the Stacy Adams Madison II is more my speed. Brands like Steve Madden and Robert Wayne also further my style with trendy, out-of-the-box designs for an uncompromised, all-day comfortable look.

Although belts may not be the most visible wardrobe add-on, that doesn’t make them any less important to own. Pro tip: plastic belts should never make its way into your wardrobe arsenal; instead, think leather all the way.

Bed Stu, a brand that balks at the idea of mass production, prides itself on detailed craftsmanship by utilizing traditional techniques. In fact, they use natural leathers and a vegetable-based tanning process when available. Click the image above and check out a few of their most popular belts to wear for fall, and year round.

If you often find yourself on the go, don’t you dare leave your luxury loft without an urban-chic messenger bag by your side. Not only are these bags stylish, they’re more grown-up and just as functional as a backpack. With roomy storage and an exterior flap pocket, you’ll be able to pack your laptop and other necessities with ease.

Fully adaptable, you can wear these babies across your chest or detach the strap for a traditional carry. Made of varied canvas materials, these Bed Stu bags will surely be the exclamation mark to your fall style.

Men's Fashion Spotlight: Sebago Footwear

Men everywhere — it’s time to retire the dirty, worn-out tennies and punch up your winter footwear selection with something more dapper. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy my tennis shoes as much as the next guy; however, you’re not in high school anymore and crashing parties on frat row. You’ve grown up, and so should your collection of shoes with Sebago.

When you’re headed to the ballgame with the guys or a date night with your favorite gal, a chukka boot or relaxed oxford is an exceptional alternative without going over-the-top fancy.

Take a look at the Rutland Chelsea above, for example. This model boot features a contemporary design that can be worn anywhere, anytime. Easy pull-on construction eliminates the need to re-lace, and dual goring side panels allow for much-needed breathability. With color options in brown and black, this boot pairs easily with dark jeans and colored denim for a standout look.

The Collier Chukka provides the same versatile design as the Chelsea, but with modified characteristics. Going throwback, this chukka features a lace-up design with a fashion-forward suede upper and leather lining. Navy and brown are your color options here, but I suggest the former as your new go-to staple.

Just because it’s winter doesn't mean it’s cold outside. I’m looking at you, people in the Deep South and coastal states. You’re probably not in need of new boots, so let’s outfit you with something more weather appropriate.

If you’re out strutting the boardwalk or setting sail on your yacht, a sophisticated, well-designed boat shoe may be up your alley. Take your pick with a full grain leather or textile upper with contrast slipping and hand-sewn eyelets. Comfort comes free with a padded tongue, cushioned footbed and nonslip rubber sole. With several colors and styles available, you’ll be able to pair with your favorite shorts or swim trunks no problem.
