Not quite sure how to dress for Fall? We feel you. Whether you're working from home, finding your new hybrid groove, or getting back to your normal routine, you’re probably rethinking your go-to outfits and ready to refresh your wardrobe for Fall. We all want comfort, but we also want to look good! So, we got the lowdown from SeaVees’ Social Media Coordinator and resident style expert, Zari, on what Fall style trends we need to try this season. Her top three tips: adventurous, textural, and oh-so cozy.
“It’s all about taking comfort out of its comfort zone this season. Wear your coziest layers but add a little something unexpected to the mix, whether you’re playing with color, texture, or proportion. And no matter what you throw on, a good pair of sneakers or boots can pull a whole outfit together nicely.” — Zari, SeaVees Social Media Coordinator
Dress for Adventure. Brave the Elements.
Fall is the perfect time for getting outdoors. So, first things first, get some adventures on the books. Once you know the ecosystems you’re after and hobbies you’re itching to try, outfit yourself in functional (and stylish) layers that will stand up to the job. For clothing, that might mean versatile flannels in unique colors, vintage denim in easygoing cuts, form-fitting coveralls, and oversized, statement-making puffers. Whether you’re hiking in Zion, catching the train in NYC, or chilling in a cabin in Vancouver, you’ll need rugged, weather-resistant footwear that can handle a wide range of conditions. Treat yourself to versatile boots and lug-outsole sneakers that can withstand the coldest months and offer a little extra traction on the go. Guys, check out the Beyond and Back Boot and Sierra Adventure Boot. Gals, slip on the Bolinas Boot and Laguna Chelsea Boot. And don’t forget a cozy pair of high socks for style points.
Embrace Fall Tones. Mix and Match Textures.
Crisp weather calls for warm layers and soft textures—mix and match at your leisure. Think: chunky wool sweaters, buttery-soft cashmere, high-pile fleece, brushed flannel, and you bet velvet is back. For your color palette, stick to softly muted Fall hues you’d find in nature with bright pops of color for a little something extra. For footwear, there’s no need to stray from this philosophy, which is why we’re offering a deep selection of flannel, fleece, lace, and velvet options across our signature styles to keep your Fall aesthetic cozy and your feet happy. For our guys, we suggest adding a rugged leather or soft suede sneaker to your rotation that you can dress up or down easily. Try the El Cap Camp Moc in suede or the Hawthorne Slip On in wool. For the gals, our platform sneaker is a must-have this season that provides all the same comfort of our classic sneakers, just elevated. Don‘t miss our Baja Slip On Platform in flannel or the Melrose Lug Platform in spice—grab your size while we have it!
Lounge at Home. Luxuriate in Softness.
Thankfully, athleisure isn’t going anywhere. We all voted—it’s here to stay. We've all had plenty of time to accumulate enough sweats for a lifetime. But make sure you feel good in them. Ditch the slouchy sweats and get some cute, comfy layers for around the house that you wouldn’t be afraid to walk the dog in. The same goes for footwear. Our SeaChange slippers and booties come in both Women’s and Men’s sizing and are cozier than you can even imagine. Made with 100% recycled polyester fleece with a cushy footbed and natural rubber outsole, these are durable slippers you can wear down the block to your favorite coffee shop—you have our full permission.
Shoes for Fall and Beyond
While clothing trends come and go, SeaVees shoes are here to stay. Made with durable materials in timeless styles, you’ll rock these across the seasons and for years to come. Pick up your next pair, take care of them, and they’ll take care of you.
Our Favorite Places to Shop
Keeping up with the trends doesn’t mean you have to shop new. For our campaign shoots, we do our best to source everything secondhand. Some of our favorite resale shops are Poshmark, thredUP, and Depop, but nothing beats rummaging through our local thrift stores in Santa Barbara.
