It’s that time of year again. The dog days are over and the weather is cooling down a bit, but Mother Nature insists on taking us on a wild ride until around November. Weatherwise, we simply never know what’s coming, so you need to be prepared for all of it. And what better way to do so than in style?
Week by week, we’re searching the web to seek out the top five style picks for men to wear right now. We’ve got all eyes on the latest fashion trends, most worth-it deals, brand-new drops and weather-appropriate stylings you can rock 365 days a year — ranging from the best men’s t-shirts to even some socks and sandals.
So, what exactly is on our radar this week? Check ’em out below and get ready to throw together the perfect look now.
1. Day Owl Backpack
School is fully back in session! If you’re headed back on campus this semester, there’s never been a better time to snag one of the best backpacks for college students. Our favorite right now? The Backpack from Day Owl. This handsome backpack comes in a variety of colors to match your specific style. It’s made with First Mile® recycled canvas, so it’s never been in a landfill before. Each pack is complete with a padded laptop sleeve to keep your Macbook safe and both water and stain repellence for total protection from inclement weather.

2. Teva Hurricane XLT2 Stance
Considering this is our second week in a row including Teva in our weekly style finds, it’s safe to say we’re absolutely crushing on this style-centric footwear brand right now. On September 16th, Teva released something none of us were expecting: a limited edition sock and sandal. Because, you know, September officially kicks off #SockAndSandalSeason. This duo reimagines Teva’s classic Hurricane XLT2 by pairing them with a matching pair of socks that simply look way too good. No socks and sandals slander here!

3. Fresh Clean Tees Fresh 5-Pack
The perfect t-shirt doesn’t exi-
Okay. It seems that we’ve spoken a bit too soon with that one. We’ve been obsessing over Fresh Clean Tees as of late due to their comfort, price and fit. These are wardrobe staples that everyone needs to keep in their repertoire. They’re ideal for wearing solo or pairing with an open button-down shirt when it gets a little chillier outside, making them a must for those in-between hot and cold weather moments we see a ton this time of year. You can choose between crew and v-neck options depending on what it is you’re looking for, too.

4. Market Smiley Patch Beanie
Beanie season is essentially here. While days are hot, nights are becoming cooler and cooler, so if you want to cover your noggin in a trendy head-warmer as soon as the sun goes down, we say all power to you. Patches are where it’s at this year, so this playful smiley face clad right on top of a cream-colored beanie spills nothing but fashion for us right now. Cap it as the cherry on top of your look and head out on the town.

5. Kappa 222 Banda Deky Trackpants
Yes, track pants. In 2021. Someone had to do it. And that someone is Kappa.
Kappa’s newest fall collection includes a number of stylish must-haves, but our favorite from the drop is easily these salmon-colored track pants. We’ve never seen anything like them before and for that reason itself, we simply have to love ’em. The pants feature an elastic waist with a drawcord for that perfect fit and have a patterned Kappa logo down the outside of each leg. Wear these to pull a look or just to do some laundry across the stress. However you wear them, you will absolutely pull them off. We’re sure of it.
