Summer is a huge drag. It might sound like profanity to most people, but we’ve said it. Hot Shot: The best part of the year is light jacket season.
Colloquially referred to as fall or fall, light jacket season is, as the name suggests, the time of year when outside temperatures are perfect for a light jacket. There is no need to take out the ski jacket that has been lying around in your closet for years or to throw on your long leather duster; a light bomber or denim jacket over flannel will do the trick. And we love the whole list of fall basics: we’re talking flannels, sweatshirts, beanies, socks and, of course, lightweight jackets.
If you live in a part of the world where the seasons are easy to see, you might already have some must-have essentials for fall, and that’s fine, but so does the fridge space, toilet paper, and friends. with weed-growing parents, you can never have enough fall closet staples. Plus, last fall didn’t really happen (if you were in charge), which means your fall wardrobe hasn’t been updated since … 2019. [Shudders.] That’s why now is the time to fill your shelves (or your black entrepreneur bag full of clothes that have been in the corner of your bedroom since you moved) with the best basics to drop, as always, unless of $ 100.
The best flannels for fall
If you filled a bushel of apples, a haystack and a soccer ball in a juicer and then turned the result into a garment, it would be a flannel shirt. It’s the universal emblem of fall, and you really can’t go wrong with your choice here. No matter the flannel, it will be practical, affordable, and most importantly, lumbersexual AF. Plus, not all flannel shirts have to be plaid, so even if you’re not in the mood to look like a huge kilt, you can still attend the flannel party. Everlane has a few without tiles that we like (this one is halfway down right now), Amazon has affordable flannels with insanely good reviews, and, of course, you can’t go wrong with workwear giants Carhartt, fall vibe experts LL Bean and the center. staple commercial that turned out to be -be-pretty-cool American Eagle.
The best lightweight jackets for fall
Now we are talking. Even if you don’t consider yourself a lover of light jackets now, once you catch these bad boys you’ll wonder why and how you ever doubted that God put you on earth to wear bombers, denim jackets, windbreakers and padded zippers.
As for the best deals on jackets right now, you can’t go wrong with Levi’s for denim; The North Face has some of the sickest windbreakers in the game; Everlane is our staunch all-basic steed, and doesn’t disappoint on the light jacket front; and this New Balance jacket says, “I’m a cold weather athlete, but I’ve also smoked a number of cigarettes in my life.”
The best fall accessories
First of all, if we see any of you wearing an infinity scarf this season … [Balls fist Arthur-style.] Just kidding, of course we love our riders, and scarves are definitely a good winter accessory, infinite or not, but they are not a necessity. What is ultimately needed for fall, however, is a sturdy beanie.
We love these versatile choices from Urban Outfitters and Supreme, but the classic Carhartt beanie still reigns supreme on the streets of Bushwick, Echo Park and other ‘artistic’ parts of the metropolitan areas that are teeming with people eager to see you there. to say. on their latest film project.
The other must-have fall accessory is a good pair of sunglasses, preferably polarized, unless you want to permanently damage your retinas while lying in the park enjoying the cool fall weather. We love Goodr’s basic $ 25 torties that look good on everyone, Amazon’s $ 17 Aviators that have a whopping 14,000 killer reviews, and Ray-Ban’s iconic Wayfarers are on sale on a massive scale. right now and can be picked up for less than a hundred dollars at Nordstrom Rack.
And, for people who get a little chilly on hayrides but want to look tough, Uniqlo’s Heattech gear is considered the standard for comfortable basics when the temperatures drop. (If you’ve been reading our guide to the essentials of moving to New York City, you already know we’re pro-thermals.) These are mostly meant for late fall, when things really start to get cold. , although in most parts of the country you probably won’t need to wear them under your cut for a few months.
We can’t wait for Halloween candy to go on sale. Catch yourself at the pumpkin patch.
