We are all big fans of the summer season but sometimes we get tired of just wearing tees and flip flops when it’s one billion degrees outside. So when fall blows our way we get excited about layering, boots and a cozy knit cap.
We also know fall dressing can make our bank account want to donkey kick us so while we still save up for some quality footwear and some other indulgences, we try not to go too far over the edge. That is why we are big fans of Target. Their cool factor has been rising steadily and the brands they carry get it right while keeping costs low. We spoke to Karen Mahon, Associate Product Designer Director at Target and she gave some insight into what’s coming in stores: “This fall we encourage men to explore new style elements, everything from rustic-inspired backpacks to woven shirts in a multitude of patterns and fabrics. Layering becomes increasingly important as we move into the fall season. With endless choices of simple, bold and versatile pieces to mix and match, our guests can find just what they need for a perfectly layered style to transition from fall to winter.”
Some of those pieces include a good looking toggle overcoat, varsity jacket, suede boots, a variety of colorful corduroys and comfy Henley’s. Remember that cozy knit cap? Yep, they got that too. And it doesn’t stop with clothing – that olive canvas backpack is right on point as are the rugged leather belt by Converse One Star and foxy socks to spice up a chilly winter night on the town.
