As the vibrant hues of fall foliage paint the landscape, it's time to dive headfirst into nature's playground. It’s time to embrace a lifestyle that's all about fun in the great outdoors, whether you're hiking, apple picking, or roasting marshmallows by a crackling bonfire. Your fall outfits aren't just threads; they're your adventure buddies, helping you blend right into the season's splendid tapestry.

5 Things You Need from Your Fall Clothes 

  • Cozy: Fall clothing is all about comfort and warmth, with cozy base, mid and outer layers (plus hats!) being essential pieces. 
  • Layered: Layering is key during the fall season, so clothing that allows for easy layering is highly sought after. 
  • Versatile: Fall clothing should be versatile enough to transition from cool mornings to warmer afternoons, making it adaptable to changing weather. 
  • Autumnal: Fall clothing often incorporates colors and patterns inspired by the autumn season, such as earthy tones and rich hues. 
  • Sun Protection: Don't forget the autumn sun still packs a punch. Whether you're at boating, hiking, at a beer festival or tailgating on game day, make sure you're wearing UPF 50+ sun protection to keep your skin healthy and sunburn-free.

The great news is Vapor Apparel’s fall Elemental Wear Collection checks all of these boxes – and more.

Looking for Ways to Reduce Stress This Fall? 

Did you know that as little as 20 minutes outside a day can reduce stress levels? The National Park and Recreation Association suggests you head to your local park or walking trail, or hit the dog park with your fur baby. That’s easy to do on the weekends, but if you’re working all week, just head outside and walk around your building or parking lot or eat your lunch outside. Get creative so you can reap the benefits of getting a little time outside in the fresh air.
