Layered Fall Fashion: What to Wear When You Pair

The promo apparel industry shouldn’t be confined to a “one and done” purchase mentality. Instead, it’s time to shift into fashion-forward high gear with a “the more, the merrier” mindset to apparel orders! Next Level Apparel (asi/73867) is here to help suggest a few promo apparel pairings to help drive multiple purchases and make a fashion statement that benefits everyone in the promotional apparel industry.

Let’s start with how to layer NLA’s new Fall 2022 styles.

The new and versatile Unisex Fleece Quarter Zip (9643) is a fashion statement all in itself, but when paired with NLA’s tri-blend T-shirts it becomes a complete cozy ensemble for outdoor events. The super-soft silky Tri-blend fabric provides a nice light layer and color accent to the 9643 when it’s worn unzipped. As for decoration, we suggest screen printing graphics on the tri-blend and opting for logo embroidery on the 9643 quarter zip.

Next up, we have the Unisex Santa Cruz Hoodie (9303). The Santa Cruz collection was voted the best fleece on the beach due to its ultra-soft and cozy brushed 80% cotton/20% polyester blend fleece backing and highly functional 100% cotton face, which allows for a superior printing surface. This collection also offers a wide range of styles including hoodies and crew necks in popular high-volume colors.

The 9303 has a 100% cotton face for premium printability and comes in a gorgeous assortment of seven colors, plus four new fashion colors: Antique Denim, Galaxy Purple, Oxblood and Shiitake. The hood is lined with jersey and features a natural drawcord and set-in long sleeves with 1×1 baby rib cuffs for comfortable everyday wear. We recommend layering this premium hoodie with the new 6211 which comes in 11 complementary colors. The 6210 is also an excellent under layer if short sleeves are preferred. All in all, both the Santa Cruz Fleece and CVC are excellent!

Our final favorite pairing candidate is the Unisex Laguna Sueded Hoodie (9304). This midweight fleece provides a lighter layer when end-users just need to take the chill off. Let clients know the French terry component is what makes this collection a great lightweight, relaxed alternative to other heavier-weight fleece options, which is why we’re highlighting this style as one of our top picks for layering. It’s the perfect companion to the sueded T-shirt collection. As for complementary pieces, we suggest the 6411 or the 6410, which comes in 25 lived-in muted colors.
