Men's Must Haves This Fall - Shearling Jacket
Fall is without a doubt my favorite season of the year. The cool, crisp air, changing colors of the trees, and the countdown until the holiday season - I love everything about Fall, especially the fashion.
If you're in the Midwest like me, you know all about waking up and the weather being 50 degrees outside yet when you leave the office at 5pm, it's 70 degrees; nonetheless, that just means you can slowly de-layer throughout the day and change your #ootd by the hour LOL.
Anyhow, more specifically, what I really love about Fall is the ability to layer up and finish the entire look off with a variety of coat/jacket options. I think your outermost layer is often the most important piece because 1. it's what people see first, 2. it's protective of your outfit from the elements - rain, rain, go away, and 3. it's probably one of your most durable and longest lasting articles of clothing. Because of these three points, I am not afraid to splurge on an eye catching, statement piece coat/jacket.
The cool part about coats/jackets is that many of them are very versatile in terms of how and where you can wear them. They can be dressed up, dressed down, styled for a weekend evening out, or styled for the professional on the go. I am going to attempt to create a blog post dedicated to a specific type of coat/jacket that I think is a must-have for all men.
My first recommended must-have is the classic, yet cool and modern shearling jacket. These jackets are soft and warm and offer a timeless look that's in style year after year. The shearling jacket is very versatile and can be paired with jeans and a tee for a casual look, or paired with slacks and a button-up or sweater as you trek to the office. Shearling jackets come in a variety of colors, lengths, and outer materials that are sure to live up to the needs of any man fashionably.
