It’s September. Days are getting shorter, leaves are falling from the trees, and temperatures are gradually dropping. It’s time to face reality: summer will soon be a distant memory.

Lots of people claim to live for the shorts, slides, and shades game in summer, but just as many have been eagerly awaiting the time they can debut their fall wardrobe. In fact, the “I can’t wait till it gets colder so I can really start dressing” sentiment is real and has even sparked a flurry of memes and reactions across the interweb.

And while it’s all fun and games posting memes about wanting to add the extra layers to your ’fits, have you got the essential layering pieces to live up to your online humor? For colder days to come, it’s worth having some essential fall layering pieces in your wardrobe before the chill hits, which is why we’ve selected all the best ones to have ready — from the uber comfortable hoodie to the must-have overshirt.

Once the uniform of angry teenagers, the hoodie has now become a staple in every closet. A good hoodie, be it plain or graphic-heavy, is a perfect layering piece for a fall day, especially when paired with a leather jacket or long coat.

And while we recently brought you top retailers’ picks of the best FW18 hoodies, we at Highsnobiety have also had our eye on some select styles. “A hoodie is one of the most important pieces in anyone’s Fall/Winter wardrobe,” says HS curator Rhianna Matthews. “There’s nothing better than throwing on a warm hoodie to keep you both cozy and steezy. They pretty much go with any street outfit, as they can be worn with more laid-back sweats and jeans, but can also be dressed up with a nice jacket over the top and some cords.”

What’s more, while streetwear brands have been releasing hoodies for years, more recently, luxury brands such as Louis Vuitton and Gucci have caught on to the piece, now regularly including them in their Fall/Winter collections.
