<p>Find out what you need in your wardrobe this fall. <br></p>
A change in season means a change in wardrobe. Packing up one set of clothing and unpacking another is a chance to reveal something new and keep your style fresh. Fall is a great season for men's style. With an abundance of bold patterns, rich textures, lightweight layers and rugged leathers, it's no mystery that many men find their style sweet spot during the autumn months. To make sure you're ready for the season, here are six key pieces that no stylish man should be without this fall.
Boots are synonymous with fall footwear. Whether you're kicking it casually with a classic chukka or dressing to impress with wingtips for a date or night on the town, adding a pair of boots to your fall wardrobe is definitely a step in the right direction.

Clarks Desert Boots
Make a seasonally appropriate statement this fall by wearing bold plaids in rich colors. Wear it casually on the weekend or dress it up with a blazer for happy hour or stylish travel.

Early fall weather is often not warm enough for short sleeves but too cool for a heavy jacket. On these days, a shawl collar cardigan is a great option for staying warm and stylish. Layer it up with a lightweight jacket or blazer in the mornings and wear it on its own later in the day.
Fall is all about great patterns and textures. When it comes to outerwear, mix it up this fall by throwing in a plaid or tweed blazer. Rich textures and fabrics are begging to be touched. Try it out the next time you head out for cocktails.
Brooks Brothers Black Fleece
Leather Biker Jacket
A badass leather jacket isn't just a jacket, it's an attitude. Make a serious and iconic statement with an all-black ensemble, or take some stylish liberties by choosing one in a light brown or oxblood color . As with most things in life, you get what you pay for, so be willing to spend a bit more for a good one. Consider a leather jacket an investment piece that will only get better with age.
Fall is the season for weekend getaways and quick overnight trips. Whether you're spending a night with your lady at a quiet bed-and-breakfast or making a full-on weekend excursion, make sure you're carrying your luggage in style.
