How we approach dressing this year has really been dictated by spending a great deal of time indoors. What makes a fire ’fit today? Comfort reigns supreme, and so does versatility. Whether you’re lounging on your couch or out running errands, you need pieces that go the distance.
Transitioning from summer to fall means taking a look at your wardrobe through this very lens. But let’s not forget about style – quarantined or not, there are still a handful of fall style statements we’re watching closely. Denim continues to be a favorite, particularly denim on denim. Layering is not just functional, it’s a bonafide look. And workwear-inspired pieces are also in the mix for fall.
Enter Free Assembly, a brand that checks off all of these boxes and more. Not only does it score high on style and versatility (i.e. assemble freely), it’s committed to sustainably. Take its denim, for example, that’s made with mostly organic cotton, which avoids fertilizers and pesticides and is washed using techniques that encourage reduced water usage.
Free Assembly is available exclusively at Walmart.com and in select Walmart stores. We teamed up with them to curate a selection of pieces to add to your fall wardrobes that tap into these styles and won’t break your bank account.
Everyday Long Sleeve Henley
The henley is an underrated piece, but it’s undoubtedly a wardrobe staple. This olive-striped one by Free Assembly packs a bigger visual punch than the solid-colored variety, and its color palette is a great way to usher in fall. Layer it under a camo bomber jacket for a pattern clash that actually works; for a more streamlined look, tuck it into a pair of slim black jeans.
The best part about a utility shirt is, well, its utility. Don’t sleep on those generously sized pockets – stuff them with the essentials so you can leave the crossbody bag at home. For the minimalist, pair this khaki color with beige chinos and brown leather chelsea boots; to break it up, try layering it under a quilted vest in a contrasting color and throw on your favorite pair of jeans.
Denim Shirt In Light Wash
There are countless ways to style a denim shirt, but for fall we’re going denim head to toe. Take this light-wash shirt, wear it with dark selvedge jeans by Free Assembly (which you can cop for just $40), and you’re ready to go.
2 Pocket Flannel
Nothing says cozy like flannel, and that’s the vibe we’re on for fall. This two-pocket shirt by Free Assembly is a great layering piece to transition from summer to fall. Throw it over a well-worn tee and sweatpants to keep things casual, or wear it under a denim jacket and team with cargos when you’re pounding the city pavement.
Quilted Bomber Jacket
The bomber jacket is still an outwear favorite and, in this camo print, it will never go out of style. The quilted detailing is decidedly fall. Throw it over a T-shirt-and-jeans ’fit; for a bolder statement, wear them with cargo pants in a cargo print that’s larger in scale and team with your favorite kicks.
Men’s Chore Jacket In Dark Navy
The chore jacket is a great way to tap into the workwear look. If you just want to dip your feet into the style, throw it over a button-down and selvedge jeans. If you want to play up the workwear style, team with carpenter pants.
Athletic Slim Jeans
Your lower half doesn’t have to be built like an Olympian to pull off athletic fit jeans. Just think of them as a roomier option. Wear them with a hoodie and kicks for a laid-back look, or dress them up with leather boots, a white tee, and a slim black coat. Best of all, Free Assembly’s denim is sustainably made, using organic cotton that’s free from toxic chemicals, fertilizers, and pesticides, and are made at Fair Trade Certified factories.
E-Waist Utility Pant
These utility pants are a nice nod to the workwear vibe without overdoing it – plus they ooze comfort. Made of 100% organic cotton and featuring an elastic wait, you’re set whether you’re hanging in or outdoors.
