It’s long been said that the arrival of fall marks the return of “real dressing.” That doesn’t mean dressing well comes easy in the colder months, though. The Highsnobiety Fall Fit Toolkit is here to help you through the transition to (literally) bigger and better clothing.

The clothing we invest our hard-earned cash in needs to do more. And not only for financial reasons. We’re all well versed in the damage fashion is doing to the planet and with waste a monumental issue that’s going nowhere fast, it’s time that the single items we choose to wear start to plug multiple gaps in the wardrobe. Transformable clothing and a modular wardrobe is one small approach to dressing more sparingly. And there’s no time better to do it than fall.

We recently wrote how convertible pants had departed from their camping store-bound days to occupy the rails of some of the world’s coolest stores. But this multi-use mode doesn’t stop at pants. There are transformable tops and jackets abound, too, and they’re ideal for the fast-changing weather of the transition season — which we happen to be in right now.

To get you modularly equipped, we hit the figurative shelves of our favorite online stores to bring you the best convertible clothing to zip off, pop off, and multi-task with, this fall.

Nylon Parka Coat


Junya Watanabe

Buy at Luisaviaroma

Hot on the heels of that Kanye mention (as if he needed it), the master Junya Watanabe serves a fire parka coat that does everything you need for a stress-free commute. Seriously, it's got a backpack built in — so there's no chance you'll forget your laptop or lunchbox.

Jerih Zip-Off Sleeves Utility Jacket

Padded Utility Jacket



Buy at ssense

The realm of the convertible jacket is not one that's explored often, but I see no reason for that rule to remain. This one, by Seoul-based label Jerih, zips off into a sleeveless outerwear item — perfect for making that transition from street to sweaty subway seat.

Transformation Hoodie


Saul Nash

Buy at ssense

London's Saul Nash is doing big things in the athleisure area and that includes this part hoodie, part crewneck, part base-jumping suit. Open the side zip to increase ventilation, or close it for a classic grey sweater look.

Work Jacket


AWGE x Needles

Buy at ssense

When shopping for convertible clothing, you're not restricted by zip-off pants and jackets alone. Reversible pieces offer double the money for your rail, particularly when the two sides are as different as on this jacket by Needles. One side offers a classic beige workwear look, while the other goes hard with a bold patchwork print.

Flared Detachable Trousers


Bethany Williams

Buy at Farfetch

Ok, these are wild. Bethany Williams' go at the detachable trouser takes things well below the knee. In fact, these might even be considered Capri once you press the button. So, are you brave enough?

Brain Dead Convertible Pants

Fur Convertiable Zip Off Pants


Brain Dead

Buy at Slam Jam

You know convertible pants are no longer frowned upon if Brain Dead is making them. And in faux fur! Who'd have thought it?

Fendi Zip-Off Track Pants

Zip-Off Cargo Shell Track Pants



Buy at Matches

To pants now, and a category once the reserve of dads and dads only. If you're still unsure about flaunting the fact your trousers do both, a sleek black pair will hide their hidden power very well.

Nike Jordan 23 Engineered Lounge Pants

Engineered Lounge Pants



Buy at ssense

Zip-off track pants are a very smart cop if you're a runner, letting you do your thing in pretty much any weather with one purchase. This pair from Nike and Jordan happens to look good, too.
