Most Versatile Fabrics for Fall

Fall is a wonderful time of year when the leaves change color and the weather gets cooler. It’s also a time of year when the choice of fabrics might be something to consider for whatever it is you’re wearing. This guide will go over a list of the most versatile fabrics for fall. 

There are six in particular that we will cover. You may want to check your wardrobe for any of these fabrics. If you don’t have any, it may be a good idea to check out what Berle has to offer. 

Let’s go over the following fabrics that will be the perfect fit for fall.

Lightweight Wool

When it comes to cooler weather, wool is often the go-to fabric. A lightweight version of it will be great to wear so you don’t feel weighed down when you’re out and about. There are plenty of clothes that you can wear that have lightweight wool. 

One of them is our wool flannel trousers - which are available in flat front or pleated. These may be the perfect trousers to wear in the fall time whenever you want to dress to impress.


Known for its ribbed texture, corduroy is durable, thick, and quite comfy to wear. In fact, it’s one of the fabrics that has been reliable for fall wearing for a long time. Don’t expect it to go out of style anytime soon.

If it did, what would be the point in us suggesting our 8-Wale Luxury Italian Corduroy trousers? If you are looking for what we believe is a timeless classic, this is the kind of fabric you can consider wearing when fall is in full swing.


This fabric is another classic known for its warmth and durability. So it’s no surprise that we include it in our list. It’s a mainstay for those who enjoy wearing blazers and is great for accent pieces like hats.

Tweed can also pair well with different fall wardrobe pieces as well. For example, if you are wearing a tweed jacket, it can go well with corduroy pants. Yes, it’s OK to pair some of these fabrics with each other - assuming it’s an appropriate blend.


While it’s great for the fall, denim is great for year-round wear. Whether it’s jeans or jackets, it’s a timeless fabric that can certainly look awesome. It can adapt quite well to any environment and it’s durable.

It’s important to care for your denim clothes in the fall as well. This includes washing them in a gentle wash with cold water. Air drying them will also ensure their durability and longevity.


Silk may be seen as something that can be worn in warmer weather seasons. However, it can blend well with anything that you can wear in the fall. For example, silk shirts or ties can be great when they're part of a fall-time ensemble.

However, it’s important not to overdo it. Too much silk will make it give off a summertime vibe than a fall one. A silk shirt with a heavier tweed or something similar might be a choice worth considering.


It’s the fabric that is considered “King” when it comes to fall time. Because it’s warm, comfy, and quite aesthetically pleasing. Flannel shirts and pajamas are often some of the most popular options for those who want to wear something in the fall whether it’s at home or somewhere else.

If you want to incorporate this fabric into your wardrobe, it’s always a good idea to choose how it can be worn. For example, you can wear a flannel jacket over the top of your choice.  

Before you plan on wearing flannel at any point in the fall, it’s important to know how to care for it properly. At the same time, you need to ensure that it stays soft throughout the entire season. The best way to do that is to use a mild detergent. 

This includes detergents that do not contain chlorine and phosphate. If it’s cotton flannel, you can put it in the washing machine. However, you need to make sure that the water temperature is warm.

Finally, a mild wash will be best here, so it won’t place a ton of stress on your flannel clothes.
