Believe it or not, summer is coming to a close. If you’re anything like me, you’re sick of the heat and ready for boots and lots of layering. To get you ready for the upcoming season, here are some of the biggest men’s fashion trends. Follow this guide, and you’ll be the most stylish man of the season.

Golden Rules from Your Indianapolis Men’s Personal Stylist

Indianapolis Men's Personal Stylist pick for a fall sweaterPlayful Knits

For those cooler fall days, it is essential to have the perfect fall sweater. If you grow tired of your basic grey or navy sweater, perhaps try a more artistic approach. During the FW 2019 men’s runway shows a variety of designers showcased illustrated knitwear. Not only is it functional and able to keep you warm, but it also looks extremely cool. I would pair a pullover with some dark jeans and a pair of boots or sneakers for a casual look.

Scarves can be a great way to update a boring outfit into something much higher fashion. They also serve as a great way to stay warm. On the runway, designers showcased scarves in a variety of ways, however, extra-long scarves are most likely going to be the trend of the season. Extra-long scarves not only keep you extra warm, but they look impossibly cool. I suggest throwing a scarf on with a crewneck sweatshirt and some joggers for a relaxed weekend look. 

Acid Wash

I know, I know, the 80s were a scary time for fashion. But it was also a great time for self-expression. That being said, acid wash is back and bigger than ever. On the FW 2019 runway shows it was a big hit. Dsquared2 showed head to toe acid wash looks, and I have to say they looked pretty interesting. If acid wash gives you bad flashback memories, there are still subtle ways you can try it out. I, your Indianapolis Men’s Personal Stylist Intern, would style it with a flannel and dark wash jeans for a cool going-out look.

Leather jackets may seem like a classic fall staple, but I don’t feel like enough guys take advantage of them. Throwing on a leather jacket will elevate any look. If you’re bold enough, take a note from Dior Homme and tryout a full leather look for super Matrix vibes. If that’s not really your style though, throwing on a leather jacket over a white t-shirt and some jeans will do just the trick this fall season. 

Flower Power

Thanks to the phenomenon of dressing like your grandparents, vintage is inevitably “in” right now. Flower power was all over the runways this season, and although this may seem like feminine print plenty of men can rock it too. I like the floral prints that David Edwards Clothier sells:

Style Recommendations: Aztec T-shirt

This type of whimsical print can add a playful aspect to your look.
