11 Trends Every Man Should Have in His Closet This Fall

Banana Republic Corduroy Puffer Vest

We may be buying more for comfort than stocking up on couture these days, but that doesn’t mean our wardrobes shouldn’t still be infused with fall’s latest styles. Earlier this year, designers took to the runways to show off the latest fall fashion trends for men. Ranging from reds to prints to (faux) fur, here’s what every man should add to his wardrobe this fall.

Prints

Ami Anniversary Face Patch Sweatshirt

Prints are getting a bit of a makeover for 2020, with designers like Etro, Lanvin, and Ami focusing on faces rather than patterns. If you’re not quite ready to dive into full-blown face patterns, dip your toe in the water with this relatively subtle nod to the runway trend.

Red

United Colors of Benetton Shiny Puffer Jacket

United Colors of Benetton Shiny Puffer Jacket

Each season, there’s always one colour that stands out and this year, it’s red. The crimson shade was super popular among designers, spotted on the runways at Givenchy and Alexander McQueen. This bright red puffer is the best of both worlds: It’s perfectly on trend and will keep you warm through the winter.

Plaid

Contrasting Plaid Shirt

Contrasting Plaid Shirt

From Gucci to Armani to Prada, checks of all kinds and sizes were all over the runways in London, Milan and Paris. Though pre-COVID, suits and overcoats were all the rage, a cozy fleece or long-sleeved shirt fits the bill for 2020. This button-up is the perfect addition to your work-from-home wardrobe. It pairs nicely with sweats, and will look great on your next Zoom call.

Leather

Irwin Leather Shirt

Leather never goes out of style, and it’s not going anywhere this fall. Whether you opt for faux or real, an accessory (as seen at Prada) or a full head-to-toe outfit (as seen at Fendi), you can’t go wrong.

Denim

Uniqlo Jersey Relax Ankle Pants in Denim

Uniqlo Jersey Relax Ankle Pants in Denim

Yes, denim is always cool, but who wants to squeeze into jeans when you’re likely not going anywhere. This season, opt for reinvented denim, with embellishments, patterns or just straight-up pretend like these super comfortable ankle pants that just look the part. For inspiration, check out DSquared2, Tod’s and Gucci.

Cardigans

Gap Ribbed Shawl Cardigan

Gap Ribbed Shawl Cardigan

Whether or not the fashion gods blessed it, cardigans are a full mood for 2020. (Though it does help that they were sported on almost every runway, from Marni to Hermès.) Stock up on soft knits — like this shawl cardigan — to keep you cozy through spring.

$88 at The Gap

(Faux) Fur

ASOS Design Faux Fur Sweatshirt

ASOS Design Faux Fur Sweatshirt

Much like cardigans, a faux fur sweatshirt is exactly what this change in temperature calls for. Take a cue from the runways and the fall/winter collections from designer brands like Vetements and Raf Simons, both of which clearly know what it takes to make it through a long Canadian winter.

Neckties

Gucci Tie in Black

Gucci Tie in Black

Ties never went out of style, but they’re definitely becoming a little more popular thanks to their prominence on the fall/winter runways. From Prada to Ferragamo, ties had a starring role. When it comes to the neck accessory, anything goes, but for those who prefer subtlety, an elegant all-black Gucci tie will certainly do the trick.

Shearling

Denim Sherpa Jacket by Rolla’s

Denim Sherpa Jacket by Rolla’s

If you’ve been keeping up with seasonal trends, you probably already have a shearling-lined coat in your closet. And it still works for 2020. But if you want an update on the classic style, opt for something casual and cool like black denim. 

$283.91 at Revolve

Corduroy

Corduroy Puffer Vest

Corduroy Puffer Vest

For 2020, classic corduroy got a sizable makeover with designers like Prada and Bruno Cucinelli showing oversized overcoats in the recognizable fabric. If you’re not quite ready to invest in a jacket in the trendy textile, opt for a puffy vest which is the perfect transition piece for fall. 

$205 at Banana Republic

Big Coats

Random Identities Navy Car Coat

Random Identities Navy Car Coat

Speaking of oversized, it seems that everything got bigger for fall/winter 2020. Runways (from Dolce & Gabbana to Paul Smith) showed off jackets and coats with roomy tailoring. To really dive into the style, go for a twill car coat like this one from Random Identities.
