As fall gets closer, you will be ditching your lightweight summer wear for a cozier fall wardrobe designed to keep you dry, warm, and comfy all season long. Autumn is the season for jackets, vests, long sleeves, and hoodies.

Whether you are going to a pumpkin patch, a fall wedding, or just gearing up to tackle your outdoor to-do list for autumn, our fall-weather clothing guide can help you choose the right clothes for the cooler autumn weather.

Fall Essentials: What To Wear During the Fall Season

Depending on where you live, fall can bring everything from light showers to brisk temperatures and even sunny conditions as we go through the summer-fall transition. You need sturdy and fashionable workwear that can stand up to the autumn environment.

As the season changes, you can find new ways to express your sense of style and personality through these functional and stylish fall essentials for your daily wardrobe.

  • Boots and sneakers
  • Outerwear (sweaters, cardigans, jackets, vests, coats)
  • Short- and long-sleeve shirts
  • Denim and non-denim pants
  • Long dresses and skirts (remove since we don’t sell these in fall/winter)
  • Autumn accessories (scarves, gloves, hats, bags)

In the fall, the weather can change throughout the day, going from cool and crisp mornings to warm and sunny afternoons. The change in temperature requires an appropriately layered outfit to keep you warm and comfortable all day long.

Tips for Dressing Comfortably In the Fall

Fall workwear can be durable, functional, and stylish. It should protect you from wind, rain, and cold while being breathable and giving you a full range of motion to handle your daily tasks.

If you want to dress for fall, here are some general tips on choosing the best clothes for work and play for autumn weather:

  • Invest in a staple piece: A go-to piece of outerwear like a waterproof or water repellent jacket For work, a breathable jacket, hoodie, and vest can keep you warm and active.
    • Layer clothes: Since it can get cold in the mornings and evenings and warm in the afternoons, you need several layers that you can take on and off as needed throughout the day.
    • Wear fall colors: Autumn is a great time to wear muted tones like burgundy, plum, emerald, brown, burnt orange, and navy.
  • Wear autumn patterns: Autumn-friendly patterns such as plaid is ideal for autumn instead of summer-friendly tropical prints. Dark florals and pendletton patterns can also work well in autumn when you are out and about.
  • Choose autumn fabrics: Warm fabrics such as cotton, denim, corduroy, chambray, flannel, chamois and lace are all go-to autumn fabrics. Try to avoid lighter cotton fabrics as well as linens and silks primarily used during the summer.
  • Mix summer and fall pieces: During your weekend outings in autumn, summer pieces like wild rags can work with extra layers such as a turtleneck and leggings. Wear clothes with long bottoms and a light layer such as a long cardigan.

At Wilco farm stores, we have got the fall essentials you need to stay warm and stylish in the cooler weather at work and beyond.

Soft Flannels for Layering

Soft flannels for layering

Soft flannels are a must-have for the cool autumn weather. A brushing mechanical process produces a soft and warm fabric, perfect for crisp fall mornings and evenings. Pair with a thermal shirt for extra warmth or wear alone for warmer days on the farm.

A Quilted Vest for Cooler Days

Quilted vests for cooler days

Conquer the brisk autumn days in style with a quilted vest. A lightweight vest can keep your core insulated while freeing up your arms from thick sleeves of winter jackets. A quilted vest is warm and functional workwear that provides a full range of motion for vigorous activities such as fly fishing, hiking, or running, all of which keep your body temperature up.

A quilted vest is the perfect layer for warmer days that do not require a heavy winter coat and days when you still could use a layer over your shirt to keep warm. Plus, it is easy to take off and store in a bag or purse.
