The fall season brings a welcome reprieve to the hot summer months. But with so many changes in September, like dropping temperatures and falling leaves, it’s easy to forget the emerging fashion trends. The hottest new styles are unexpected, like pairing your suit with a printed scarf and a military jacket. Here are nine fresh ways to style a suit this season:

Give it a kick

Whether you like it or not, you need a classic suit in your closet. The timeless look is extremely versatile and works well for both professional and social events. So, how do you dress a suit up for spring? Paired with a bright-colored tie or pocket square and a pair of loafers, the contrast between the suit and the colors creates an unexpected contrast. The suit looks smart but modern when worn with a striped tie. Neutral-colored suits can be styled with colorful accessories for a modern vibe.

Add jacket

An all-black suit is best left for special occasions when you need to be formal. However, you can up the formality and style quotient of your outfit by wearing a bold color jacket. For the past few seasons, menswear enthusiasts have been experimenting with bold, bright jackets. While such suit jackets are a bold style statement, they are perfect for those summer parties when you want to do is stand out.

Split it up

For men, the sartorial styling of a tux separates from the styling of any other garment in their wardrobe. A suit, matching trousers, and blazer are undeniably the pinnacle of men’s formal wear. But, unlike many women’s suits, which can often be worn interchangeably, suit separates can be essential in your wardrobe. In addition to their versatility, they make for excellent statement pieces when mixed and matched with more casual pieces in your wardrobe.

Check your suit

The fall fashion runways saw many designers introducing suits with everything from floral prints to velvet. This fall, keep your suit game strong by playing with textures and print. Style your suit with a chunky sweater, a scarf, and casual shoes. Or, try something bold, such as a velvet jacket, frayed denim, and a chunky knit sweater.

Black-on-Black

Black-on-black has dominated the men’s fashion scene for the past few seasons, and not even the recent trend of keeping it casual has shaken its hold. But when it comes to dressing smart, the classic pairing of a black suit with a crisp white shirt will never go out of style. By mixing your suit fabrics, you can switch up the formality of the look, making it perfect for everything from business meetings to after-hours events.

Add boots

Adding a pair of boots is the easiest way to add variety to an otherwise solid business suit. While no one will mistake you for a black-tie event attender, the right pair of boots will add warmth and interest to your look without distracting you from work.

Suit with t-shirt

Wear them with a button-down shirt for a more casual office look, or pair your suit with a sweater and tie for a night out. This season, try taking your suit’s style up a notch by pairing it with a colorful or quirky graphic t-shirt. Pair your suit with a printed tee and your favorite pair of sneakers or dressier shoes for a look that’s appropriate for the office but casual enough for weekend errands.

Sporty outfit 

As a way to kick off their autumn fashion season, suitmakers are introducing more ways to think about your favorite go-to piece. This season, the men’s suit takes on a more athletic look, with athletic cuts and fabrics geared toward the “sporty” man. And they love these fresh ways to style a suit this season.

Roll with it

Suits have, without a doubt, been trending recently. From suiting pieces to entire looks, suits have been showing up all over and, in more ways, than ever before. Fall is officially here, so it’s time to break out the chic suits—and their vibrant ties. The suit doesn’t always have to be an intimidating piece; on the contrary, it can be one of the easiest ways to look pulled together. 

For fall, the trick is to wear it differently. Keep things casual by rolling up the sleeves, swapping the tie for a casual scarf, and opting for a more casual jacket. When in doubt, go with a more casual silhouette, like the blazer and mini skirt look, for a slightly more relaxed look.
