Three hardy styles for fall plus what’s trend­ing in drinks.

Fall is a good time to feel and look re­laxed. School’s back in, traf­fic ramps up and the mar­ket’s sum­mer slum­ber is over, so your life is busy enough as it is with­out wor­ry­ing about dress­ing to the nines. “Lay­er­ing is a great way to tran­si­tion to fall. Try a light­weight knit un­der a jacket. It will work well over a shirt and tie com­bi­na­tion and will also look great when you take your jacket off,” says Shan­non Stewart, Harry Rosen’s head buyer. “When co­or­di­nat­ing a fall sport jacket or blazer take a cue from the fab­ric. A soft flan­nel five pocket pant pairs per­fectly with a tex­tured wool cash­mere jacket for that rich fall look.” Here are three put-to­gether looks.

Be smooth This Ermenegildo Zegna navy sport jacket fea­tures five pock­ets and a sub­tle bird’s eye tex­ture, nicely show­ing off the Ital­ian la­bel’s “con­sid­ered” ap­proach that is per­fect for the

of­fice or a date when com­bined with a vested cardi­gan ($650), dress shirt ($395),

flan­nel five-pocket pants ($475) and a Brunello Cucinelli pocket square ($185).

Look sharp This Ar­mani Collezioni sweater­jacket ($1,195) shows off the Ital­ian la­bel’s mod­ern ap­proach with a sleek and lus­trous vel­vet de­sign and dis­tinc­tive Man­darin col­lar. Add a dress shirt ($275) and fit­ted pair of jeans ($325) and you’re ready to be just about any­where. Stewart says a soft con­structed sweater jacket is the must-have for the sea­son be­cause it of­fers “the pulled-to­gether look of a struc­tured tai­lored jacket with the com­fort of a cardi­gan sweater. You can go busi­ness ca­sual with this jacket or pair with jeans on the week­end.”

Get rough It’s the week­end so it’s time to cut loose and be ready for any­thing, some­thing that is made eas­ier with this lay­ered Polo Ralph Lau­ren ensem­ble com­prised of a jacket ($625), sweater ($185), shirt ($165) and a mod­ern take on clas­sic jeans ($198).
