Autumn Fashion Essentials

Summer wear is simple and liberating, but when fall rolls around, a lot of people are ready to put away their flip-flops, bikinis, and board shorts and have some fun with layers, textures, and traditional autumn colors. In general, fall wardrobes feature more muted tones and less vibrant patterns, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have just as much style. Dressing for fall simply calls for a shift in perspective on how to look great while wearing fashions that are more appropriate for the season. If you need a little help finding your fall fashion groove, check out these cool-weather must-have items for women and men who want to look great when they head out to party at the best clubs in San Diego

Fall Basics for Women

It can be a challenge to create a new look when the seasons are transitioning, but the arrival of fall is the perfect time to take a look at your wardrobe to see what still works, what needs to go, and what you need to add. Whether they prefer classic or trendy, this list will have something for every woman who wants to add that perfect touch of style to their fall look this year. 

Skinny Dark Wash Jeans

Dark wash jeans are the ultimate in versatility—they’re chic enough to form the foundation of an elegant outfit, but they’re still jeans, which means classic and comfortable. Whether you incorporate them into a casual outfit or something a bit more upscale, they’ll be a timelessly stylish choice, and dark blue provides the perfect complement to the rich palette of autumn colors. 

Moto Jacket

Whether you prefer leather, pleather, or suede, the signature zippers and collar on a moto jacket will make you stand out on a crowded dance floor. The smooth texture and sheen of leather or pleather adds a nice bit of contrast to typical fall fabrics, while suede gives you a more subtle, laid-back vibe that’s still stylish.


Fall is the time of year to show off your booties! These cute, comfy low-cut boots are the perfect choice when you’re looking for a solution for cool autumn evenings that’s both practical and stylish. Booties are warm and rugged, they add a ton of character to any outfit, and they’re extremely well suited for spending the whole night on the dance floor! 


This timeless classic looks great with a jacket or open cardigan, adding depth, contrast, and visual interest. You can also wear a turtleneck on its own or with a belt around the waist to create an elegant, classy look. And don’t forget—it also keeps your neck warm when it’s chilly outside!

Maxi Dress

There’s no law that says you can’t still rock your favorite summer dress when fall rolls in. All you have to do is dress it up a little with a light jacket and a pair of adorable booties. This outfit will function well in cooler weather, and nobody will mistake it for a recycled summer look. You’ll feel feminine, stylish, and ready to welcome fall with open arms!

Autumn Essentials for Men

Now’s the time to start thinking about the fall staples you’ll want to make sure you have in your wardrobe as well as any trendy pieces you may want to add to your fall fashion essentials. Here are some of the key pieces you’ll need to be well dressed as the evenings turn cooler and the nightlife heats up.

Leather Jacket

Nothing says “badass” like a well-fitted leather jacket over a pair of dark jeans, and this icon of stylish, rugged Americana never goes out of fashion. With proper care, leather can last a lifetime, so it’s an investment you’ll be able to wear for many years. Vegan leather options are widely available, so you can opt for a faux leather jacket that looks just as cool.


Overshirts are perfect for chilly nights out, and you can layer them with just about anything. These shirts are usually made of woven fiber or rugged twill, so throw one over a Henley or a heavy t-shirt and a pair of chinos to create a casually stylish look when you hit the clubs. 


Speaking of chinos, these classic pants are versatile enough to wear to the office and go straight to the club without having to change. Chinos work particularly well in the fall because they aren’t too heavy, and they look great with loafers, sneakers, and boots. You’ll find them in just about any color you can imagine, which makes them ideal for fine-tuning your wardrobe’s color palette. Most chinos are made of 100% cotton, so they’re comfortable as well as timeless.

Flannel Shirts

You simply can’t create a list of men’s fall fashion must-haves without throwing in some fuzzy, cozy flannel shirts. Nothing beats the feel of this soft woven fabric, and even though the typical plaid patterns associated with flannel shirts never go out of style, you should get a few in a variety of colors and patterns, since you can keep wearing them as layering pieces throughout the fall and into the winter.

Oxford Cloth Button-Down Shirts

The classic OCBD is the mainstay of many men’s fall fashion wardrobes, and there’s a good reason for that. While a lot of people call any type of button-down shirt an OCBD, that’s not entirely accurate, since oxford cloth is actually a specific type of fabric.

Your fall wardrobe should include a few OCBDs in a variety of autumn-friendly colors, such as navy, olive, burnt orange, tan, gray, brown, and white. Because it’s a medium-weight fabric, oxford cloth is an ideal choice for either wearing on its own or layering under a sweater or jacket. When you wear an OCBD, you’ll look like you always dress well, even though it takes very little effort to pull off this crisp, clean look.
