The trend cycle moves faster than leaves are dropping from trees (which, as proven by all the bare branches outside, is quick). So if following the style circuit feels stressful, you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’re breaking down every new trend that’s worth knowing—and adding to your closet this season—from relaxed work-leisure for professionals, to outdoor-inspired styles for nature enthusiasts.
Without further ado, scroll to meet the season’s top trends—and see how to refresh your look with a few how-to-wear tips (and mens fall outfit ideas) from Stitch Fix Stylist Alex R.
Hybrid Workwear for a Cool Commute
Your workday is about to get a lot more comfortable (and sharp) because men’s workleisure shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. For fall 2023, the trend is all about hybrid workwear: a cross between classic, professional silhouettes and comfortable, performance details. Intrigued? We thought so. “Just be sure to ask your Stylist for soft, stretchy, or moisture-wicking fabrics to get the look,” says Stitch Fix Stylist Alex R.
If your office allows business casual attire, consider this comfort-focused trend your compass when it comes to getting dressed from Monday-Friday. Refresh your fall work-leisure wardrobe with a knit blazer. Pair it with a crisp button-up cut in breathable fabric to keep you cool on your commute. As for the bottom line, try stretchy, slim-fitting slacks made to move through your stacked meeting days. Complete the look with the season’s greatest gift to your 9-to-5 grind: snoxfords. Contrary to their name, these mens fall shoes aren’t a mythical character from a Seuss book, but the style lovechild of a polished oxford and a cushy sneaker. Let fall’s latest work-leisure put your style choices at ease, and you’ll be able to take on more important tasks with full focus.
Athleisure for Hole-in-One Style
If you’re always on the go, this fall 2023 trend is for you: athleisure is in full swing, and this season, it’s all about performance gear with a polished, golf-ready spin. What does that mean, exactly? Think casual gear that’s up to par for a round of 18, followed by a post-game round at the bar.
Before you hit the course on a crisp fall day, it’s key to layer up without adding bulk (which any duffer or seasoned pro knows, could compromise your swing). Sweaters or quarter-zip pullovers will keep you warm while hitting the links, and look polished for whatever you have going on afterward. Game’s heating up? You can’t go wrong with a quintessential short sleeve polo shirt updated in the season’s rich palette (think hunter green, cool charcoal, or rich red). A closet can never have too many of these versatile staples, so it’s a wise idea to update your collection with shades for every season. Pair your polo with sleek black golf slacks, and you’ll look like a pro at the office and at your local driving range. Or, keep your look ultra-casual with a slim-fitting sweatpant or jogger cut in stretchy, breathable fabrics. Seal the deal with a fresh-out-the-box sneaker, and you’re ready to put your best foot forward—and crush your next round of golf.
Rugged Styles for outdoorsy vibes
You don’t have to head over the river and through the woods to embrace this men’s fall trend. Inspired by mountain life, the cabin-bound aesthetic is all about cozy, feel-good styles as a peaceful nod to simpler times (but you can pull them off wherever you’re spending the season).
Channel your inner lumber-enthusiast with a plaid flannel button-up and tan lace-up lug sole boots. Give your closet an intro to evergreen colors with a new shacket or fleece layer. Choose warm tones and natural hues like forest green, tanbark and oatmeal to keep the mountains in mind. Layering is a cornerstone of the cabincore aesthetic, so choose a warm foundation with either a henley or thermal T-shirt. Pile on the style with luxurious textured knit or laid-back hoodie sweaters. These comfy contenders are synonymous with cabincore. Last but not least, you’ll want to root your look with a textured cord or neutral chino to envelope the final touch of the “into the woods” aesthetic.
Elevated Essentials for Dressing to the Nines
When fall hits, your calendar probably looks something like this: date nights, friendsgiving dinners, holiday happy hours, family feasts, and a full workweek at the office. Most of the aforementioned occasions require put-together outfits, and lucky for you, fall’s polished styles happen to be on the rise.
Not only do elevated silhouettes like suiting separates, classic shirting and tailored trousers look sharp, but they’re endlessly versatile, too. A perfect-fitting blazer will take you from 9-to-5 straight to an after-hours dinner, no outfit swap required. And fall is the perfect time to experiment with textures (shoutout to cold weather which calls for heavier-weight fabrics), so why not switch up your sports coat game with tweeds or brushed wools that add warmth and dimension? Add a checkered button-down for a pop of pattern, or opt for a sharp quarter-zip sweater that feels equally cool and considered. When it comes to pants, slim-fitting anything is the move, from dark denim to crisp chinos. And the key to pulling it all together? “A pair of sleek loafers are a no-fail option for a casual-yet-elevated look”, according to Stitch Fix Stylist Alex R.
