We’ve had a brush with fall this week with Dallas and it feels so good! I’ve been sharing some of my fall clothing purchases, but today I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share my husband’s casual fall wardrobe basics. I’ll say this: you can guarantee that on just about any cool day my husband is wearing a vest.

My girls want to be outside all of the time and they can’t wait until the weekend when their daddy can play with them, too. Lately my husband has had a little guilt about not spending time as much time with our four year old. Our older girls have so many organized daddy/daughter activities (Bible Study, Indian Princesses, etc.) so he has to be intentional about one-on-one time with her. Thankfully, she loves soccer as much as he does (she’s not on a team because, poor thing, I drive enough in the car for my older girls!). But playing with daddy is so much better…
We give my husband a hard time about his love for vests, but I get it: the Dallas climate rarely calls for a heavy coat (at least for him because he’s so hot-natured!) and a vest easily pulls together any look. Whether it’s a casual tee and jeans, or button-down shirt and khakis, a vest just makes them look a tad more polished.
I recently bought him this Patagonia vest. He usually steers to black and gray so I bought him this cream color. I think it makes pairing with darker shirts easier.
Side note: he really likes this long-sleeve henley I bought him from Nordstrom. Not too tight, not too loose. I think I will get him one in another color.
I’ve pulled together some more vests from his favorite brands. Many of these come in several colors. Think about your high school and college kids that might like some of these, too:
And a few more of husband’s casual fall basics:
- Jeans (his are sold out but these jeans are a great slim straight jean for guys)
- Button-down shirts (he likes Peter Millar and Vineyard Vines to name a few)
- Casual shoes (Cowboy boots, New Balance or slip-ons)
- Tees and Henleys
- I did get him this North Face lightweight jacket you can read about in this post.
(If you want to see how my husband paired his black vest with a button-down, check out this post from last year.)
Thanks so much to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post! I hope it helps you shop for the guy in your life. As always, all outfits are styled by me and opinions are my own!
