Of course we can’t get through any winter without a few season-specific pieces (think snow boots), but here are two basics that will get worn well before and beyond the official winter season.

1.) Lace-up boots: A pair of solid, leather lace-up boots will get more than their fair share of wear. They are both practical and can work with almost any look.

2.) A cardigan: Gone are the days where cardigans are only found in the women’s department. Add an extra layer of warmth and class with a button down sweater.

An opportunity to wear a suit should never be missed. Here are a few ways to make sure your suit is on it’s A-game.

  • Get it tailored. A suit can be risky – the payoff for a great suit is huge but the loss of an ill-fitting suit could be even bigger. When you invest in a suit, go the extra step to get the most bang for you buck and to make sure it fits you perfectly.
  • Ditch the tie. A tie definitely adds a more professional edge to a suit, but going tie-less has it’s own appeal – comfort and a more relaxed contrast against a classic suit.
  • Make it yours. Add elements that make it your own. Dress socks are an opportunity to take advantage of the great prints and selections, like this navy and burgundy checked style.

 A classic plaid is a first choice print for fall. Try a combo with these pieces to keep it feeling fresh.

  • Beanie – Topping off plaid with a beanie leaves no one wondering if you meant to add a cowboy hat.
  • Basic Tee – Layering a basic tee or henley under an unbuttoned plaid shirt gives the look a more relaxed edge.
  • Lace-up Boots – A pair of lace-up dress boots intentionally steer a plaid button-up in a more street style direction.
