This season’s trends are all about practicality, while still looking sharp and stylish. We know that transitioning your wardrobe for the new season can seem a little overwhelming, but with our 5 favorite fall trends, dressing for the changing weather has never been easier. Cool, comfortable, and classic are exactly what you’ll find on the racks this season.

Here are our top picks for men’s fashion trends this fall!

1. Stylish Sweats

Gone are the days when sweats were just for the weekends. Hats, sneakers, and full-zip sweatshirts are all welcome here!

Our go-to piece for nailing this style: joggers. They go with pretty much anything and are seriously comfortable, so stock up! For chillier days, throw on a vest or light jacket to pull together the look.

With athleisure making a huge splash in fashion for both men and women, these sporty styles don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon! Some of our favorite stores for athleisure are lululemon, Gap, Eddie Bauer, Express, and our new store (coming soon!) Beauteous Activewear.

2. Graphic T-Shirts

A simple way to add a touch of flair to your outfit: the graphic tee.

With a little more personality than a solid color shirt, consider graphic tees a new staple to sport underneath flannels and light jackets. We’ve seen everything from chuckle-worthy puns to classic album covers printed on these tees, so there’s no doubt you’ll find one that fits your style.

3. Plaid Button-Ups

The plaid button-up is a classic trend that we’ll always love. Comfortable and practical, these shirts are easy to throw on over nearly anything.

When stocking up on this fall staple, be sure to grab a few in neutral shades to make sure you can always pair them with your outfit, no matter what colors you’re wearing.

4. Collegiate Prep

We’re seeing this trend everywhere and it’s not for the faint of heart!

The sleek, preppy style that’s made up entire collections of men’s clothing lines is hitting floors in tons of stores this season. Look for Oxford button-downs, crew neck or v-neck sweaters, and tapered leg chinos to nail this look.

Bonus points if you can find apparel with your alma mater’s logo on it!

5. Stylish Sneakers

The often overlooked, but critical final step to finishing off your fall wardrobe: footwear.

We had a tough time picking our favorite footwear for men (there are so many stylish shoes out right now!), but we couldn’t deny how much we love the versatility and comfort of a great sneaker. Whether you’re heading out the door in a cool-casual look or something a bit more dressed up, a stylish sneaker never fails to pull it all together.

To find your go-to sneaker for fall, check out Tradehome Shoes, Macy’s, The Buckle, and Express!

Bonus: Jackets!

Although jackets may be more of a necessity than a trend, we are loving the men’s jackets in stores this season. Some of our favorite outwear trends are leather, bombers, and military style jackets.

Layers are key for fall fashion. Besides keeping you cozy, a great jacket is the outermost layer that adds dimension to your outfit and pulls together the whole look.

Find fall jackets at Forever 21, Gap, Halberstadt’s, Eddie Bauer, Express and more!

I create content for the West Acres social media accounts and blog, which means that I get to share the latest trends, new arrivals, and all of the incredible happenings at West Acres with the community. When I am not snapping pictures for social media or writing blog content, I love to spend time painting in my art studio, testing out new baking recipes, practicing yoga, relaxing at the lake with family and friends, or playing outside on a pair of skis or my mountain bike.
