To help you (or your fella) face fall with confidence, we've tallied up our top items to update all the great staples you already own. Lightweight leather jackets, polished cords, and slim-fitted plaid shirts are among our favorite fall fixes—classic pieces that look fresh thanks to more modern cuts and easy-to-layer fabrics. Best of all, any one of these new staples will stretch your old threads well into the new season while fine-tuning your not-trying-too-hard look. And what about those accessories Alert? Be sure to check back in in the coming weeks for our best shoes and bags of the season.
