6 Things You Need To Get Ready For Fall - FITS®

October 09, 2018

Even if it doesn’t feel like it where you live, autumn is officially here, and we could not be more excited! As we move into cooler weather, this will hopefully mean you’ll be going outside more to enjoy the changing leaves, bonfires, long walks on a trail, or even just to read a book on a park bench. Whatever you do, you’ll need to be equipped for any terrain, whether that be in an urban environment, dodging rain puddles in the street or in the country, or taking your dog for a walk through the woods.

Below, we’ve gathered 6 of our favorite and most versatile products to help in both extremes and everything in between.

No. 1: Comfortable Boots

Boots are a must for cold weather, but there is nothing worse than wearing a stiff pair of boots on a freezing day. Sorel carries a wide variety of products for the rugged outdoorsman and the stylish city-dweller. Their boots are 100% waterproof and they form extremely well around your foot, and also provide great sole support. Our top picks for comfortable boots are the  Madson Moc Toe for the guy and the  Ainsley Chelsea Boot for the girl (paired with these wool socks for women), as they have rugged treads for outdoor wear and stylish designs for the city.

No. 2: The Best Socks in the World

Now that you’ve got your comfortable boots, you’re going to need the most comfortable sock on the planet too. Yep, you guessed, yours truly, FITS! Our  Light Hiker Crew is the most versatile sock in our lineup. Great for everyday wear and, of course, the great outdoors. We have a huge selection of solid color socks or you can explore our Light Hikers in other  unique patterns and styles.

No. 3: Flexible Denim

Everlane offers ethically built and quality tested denim at a great price. Their most recent product enhancements are the Authentic Stretch denim for  girls and  guys, which they even tested out rock climbing. If they’re good enough for scaling a cliff, they’re good enough for relaxing around a fire with your friends.

No. 4: To-Go Tumbler

Whether for hot coffee in the mornings or iced water to keep you hydrated during the day, the 20 oz  YETI Rambler is the perfect size and style to keep your drinks hot or cold for a long period of time, no matter the occasion.

No. 5: Wool Cap

Keeping your head warm is a no-brainer. The  Wilson and Willy’s Knit Watch Cap is an extremely affordable and quality hat that comes in basic colors. One of the best parts about wearing one of these caps is knowing that they’re all made in the USA by a family-owned business, which started in the 1920s.

No. 6: Fleece

The last item on our list is a good old fleece! We can’t think of a better outerwear piece to invest in than something that can be worn over a T-shirt and used as a jacket for your outdoor adventures. Whether you need a standard  pullover, or a fleece with a  hood, The North Face has a huge selection in every style and color. You can’t go wrong adding this piece to your fall list.
