Fall Into Fall. The Gentleman’s Guide, Part 2: Layering

Part 2 of our guide to fall is all about Layering. Being from California, where it’s summer all year round, I only understand layering from a style standpoint and thats very important to know. because of this I can’t talk to much about layering to beat the cold, or how to wrap your scarf to protect your face from frost bite (I think that’s what they do in New York, right?). I layer in the fall because it looks good and I’m not ashamed to say it! but here is a little guide I found online via my good buddy google that breaks down how many layers to wear according to number of degrees it is outside.

There you go: Science! Now lets get into the style of it all, but lets set some ground rules first shall we? We don’t want to walk down the street looking like we just stepped off of a Milan fashion week runway:

Take note. This is what you look like when you decide to put on every single article of clothing you own. Keep it simple.

When it comes to layering. I have just a few pointers. 1: Remember to keep it simple. You want every article of clothing to be visible and stand out in its own way. Adding too many layers to your outfit just looks cluttered. 2: Play with textures. I’ll be covering texture in the final segment of this guide, but for now, just remember that texture can really make the difference between mundane and exrtordinary. Also here’s a little tip, throw on a scarf or a beanie for Christ’s sake. Accessorize. Make your fall look your own by beating the cold AND looking good at the same time. There’s so much to work with in the fall. Check it out.

Sweaters, scarves, hoodies, cardigans, boots, beanies, gloves. Look at these examples of fall layering and get inspired!
