21 Best Fall Pieces To Wear in Crisp 50 Degree Weather

We’ve reached the point in the fall when temperatures hover somewhere around 50 degrees — give or take. It’s not particularly cold, but it’s not warm either — so figuring out what to wear is a little tricky. Luckily, we’ve narrowed down precisely which types of pieces are absolutely ideal for the climate. We focused on the upper halves of the garments, as shoes and bottoms are easy wins.

Knit tops with a slightly thicker fabric that can be easily layered are our number one pick. These can be tank tops, long-sleeve tops, or sweater vests. Next, we will move on to the pullover sweater category. Instead of opting for a full-blown coat, why not try out an outerwear vest — like a puffer or suede style? And lastly, we’re looking for lightweight jackets that are roomy so we can wear any top or sweater underneath depending on the forecast. Look at these pieces below and get ready to shop!
