The cooler weather means it’s time to update your wardrobe with the best looks and signature pieces for fall. Fall is the perfect time for comfy styles and to explore the latest in athleisure trends. It’s also the perfect time for lightweight sweaters, knit beanies, colorful hoodies, cozy loungewear, and rugged boots for everything from apple picking to football games and muddy hikes.
Get ready to put away your summertime gear and take a look at our trending fall outfit must-haves for your latest fall wardrobe update.
Fall fashion is built on layers. Instead of reinventing your wardrobe with heavier items, fall fashion focuses more on layers and creating warmth around your favorite pieces. Many of our favorite fall styles focus on keeping you moving with stylish, relaxed athleisure wear. Here are some of our favorite fall fashion pieces, broken down by shopping category.
One of the quintessential fall outfit essentials is a cozy hat or beanie. While a lot of outerwear options may include a hood, sometimes you just need a color accent or a different style to take your outfit to the next level.
To get your cozy hat shopping started, take a look at the classic colors available in the adidas Original Trefoil Beanie — with its marled color and soft-knit fabric. Another classic beanie option is the The North Face Pom Beanie, with a classic cable knit and contrasting pom accent.
If a hat doesn’t fit your style, you can also consider using an ear band. The Nike Club Fleece Headband has a streamlined contoured design that will keep your ears warm throughout the fall and into the winter.
Matching sets are a solid athleisure look, and they’re making a comeback this season. A matching set is a perfect way to relax and unwind on your days off, engage in your favorite athletic activity, or simply move throughout your day in a comfortable fall outfit that exudes effortless style.
When it comes to matching sets, you may think of 1980s tracksuits, but today’s tracksuits are more stylish and behave more like separates. One example is the bold, active pink and white of the Nike Essentials Oversized Sweatshirt and matching Nike Bike Shorts.
Just because the temperature is starting to drop doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite t-shirt. As the fall weather starts to set in and the air gets crisper, consider adding a stylish jacket or sweatshirt to your wardrobe instead, which you can layer over your tee.
We recommend a cozy fleece or flannel, such as the Hugo Boss Full-Zip Sweatshirt. The track-jacket style design delivers a classic look with a bit of warmth that’s perfect for football games. We also recommend Nike Tech Fleece activewear, which has a low-profile design without packing on the bulk.
Even your shoes can use a bit of a warm weather update when the temperatures start to drop. Many of the boots available to complement fall styles are designed to insulate against cooler temperatures, and some even work in a unisex capacity.
One example that we love is the Nike Manoa Leather Boots. These boots are water-resistant with full-grain leather uppers to keep out the cold and wetness while also maintaining some breathability with the mesh. It has a rugged tread that’s perfect for the city or rough terrain. It’s also available in two colors that work with a wide variety of outfits and styles.
Of course, our fall lookbook also contains some more timeless styles, including boots from Timberland, Nike, and adidas — all available in styles for men, women, and even kids. Some of our favorite options include the Timberland Courmayeur Valley Boot and the Timberland Heritage Pride Boot.
Depending on where you live, you may need to be prepared for multiple types of fall weather in addition to just colder temperatures. To keep you prepared no matter what the weather forecast has in store, there are a number of warm weather accessories that you can add to your wardrobe this time of year, including gloves and neck warmers.
For gloves, one of our favorite options is the Nike Tech Fleece Gloves — with Dri-FIT to keep your hands dry and silicone grips at the palms to hold your phone, and conductive materials for your phone’s touchscreen.
For stylish and cozy neck warmers, one of our favorites is the adidas Aeroready Neck Warmer, which has a moisture-absorbing design made from sustainable materials. Another cozy example is this reversible neck warmer from Nike with Dri-FIT technology and a bib shape that provides extra coverage.
