As the title implies, the time to bundle up (ever-so-slightly, of course–we know it’s only going onSeptember, after all) is right around the corner. With fall comes new scents, sports seasons, and of course, styles! One thing some may find hard to handle is the transition from the laid back season that is summer into the more put-together time of year that is autumn. This season calls for more dark-wash jeans (nicely tailored of course), crisp button-down shirts, and the particularly easy-chic piece to take on: the sweater.

To some the idea of a sweater for a man may seem old-fashioned or too dressy. Well newsflash guys: it’s time to dress like the men you are. No longer are flip flops a year-round footwear choice. (But were they ever, really?) No more are the dozens of ironic and sports-themed t-shirts and tattered sweatshirts some blindly choose to wear every day. It’s time for a more sophisticated wardrobe and with fall coming up, the sweater is the perfect place to start.

This piece pulls together even the most casual of outfits with its versatility and ease. It’s the perfect piece to show you’re not trying too hard but still care about looking nice. This article of clothing doesn’t just have to help you cover up throughout the months of fall either. Spring and summer carry some particularly chilly nights that make this style choice an easy option you’ll instantly thank us for introducing you to.

Here are a few of our favorites! Paired with jeans, khakis, the options are endless. One of the most important things to remember when building a more mature wardrobe is to collect classic pieces that will be a staple in your closet; pieces that you can wear for multiple occasions and will never go out of style. Well then, consider this your first big-boy purchase gents.

You’ll want to focus mostly on solid colors but don’t be afraid to venture out with one really great pattern you just have to try out.
