Argyle Jaspé Wool & Linen Crewneck Sweater
Vince
Sold by: Nordstrom

Fit Guide
This contemporary fitting Vince sweater is perfect for a cool Summer evening AND a crisp Fall afternoon. The cream and grey argyle pattern looks just as good with dark jeans and grey twill pants as it does with pants or shorts in white or grey. The combination of linen and wool gives it great texture and ideal versatility, a smart-looking layer over a simple t-shirt or blue chambray button up.

How To: Work New Fall Staples into Your Wardrobe, Now & Later

Even if we are just settling in to our Summer routines, retailers are moving on to Fall. These first new pieces of Fall products are often some of the best, in that they are styles you can also start wearing now. If you do it right, that’s a practical way to start transitioning into the new season and invest in some great new styles to keep your wardrobe updated. So this week were picking a few key new things that you can wear now & later. And we're going to put 2 outfits together around each of those pieces so you can see how they transition with ease and appropriate style. We’re highlighting some of our top picks here. And in Fashion Finds, we are showing you how you can wear something as part of an outfit now and reinterpret that same piece for later, creating seasonless versatility and a modern look – for work, a night out, or any casual day.

Remember, if you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. And let us know what you think through the comments section below and on social media.

A dark pattern sport coat in a substantial cotton fabric, like this one from John Varvatos Star USA, is a great investment to transition the seasons. The contemporary fit and dark navy color is stylish for a night out with a pair of dark jeans. While the weather’s still warm, wear it with a grey or navy t-shirt. When Fall arrives, switch out the t-shirt for a solid dark blue or pattern button up shirt. You can even add a solid light weight wool sweater for additional style and warmth.

AG Jeans - Graduate Slim Straight Leg Jeans
The first 2 pieces we featured here look great with jeans now, and through the Fall. So, let’s make sure you’ve got those versatile jeans in your closet. The wash of the Japanese denim in these AG’s looks terrific year round, with just the right amount of whiskering and sanding to give them a comfortable worn-in look, while not being too casual. They are AG’s Graduate Slim fit, which is contemporary - but not skinny - so it’s a great fit for most gents.

J.Crew’s striped lightweight sweatshirt is a key wear now, wear later piece. It’s not too heavy, so it’s easy to throw it on over a white t-shirt with shorts on a cool evening. And it won’t be too bulky when you wear it over a grey long-sleeve t-shirt with jeans or jogger pants (you know, nicer sweats) come Fall. The rich, dark indigo color looks great with white or tan, charcoal or dark khaki.

The right colors in a patterned button up shirt can easily work for both the Summer and Fall seasons. The blue, white and grey color combination of this modern-fitting Peter Millar shirt looks dapper with all the pale neutrals of your shorts and cotton pants…and, yup, just as good with those dark jeans and charcoal trousers you wear later on. It looks great under a grey or navy sweater, too.

Hickey Freeman - Beacon Classic Fit Houndstooth Wool Blend Sport Coat
Hickey Freeman’s pattern jacket is the perfect addition to any gent’s wardrobe, especially if you like a timeless, modern fit. The 85% wool, 15% silk blend ensures you can wear it through early Fall, in its medium weight, with a hint of silk. And the black and white houndstooth check has a windowpane overlay pattern, so you can wear it with white or tan twill pants in the Summer and charcoal wool pants in the early Fall. Whatever the season, a white shirt works with ease, and you can add a tie to dress it up. A great office-to-dinner piece.
