Seasonal style you can’t go wrong with 

As the weather is beginning to change and becoming more unpredictable there comes a time when most of us begin thinking about changing our wardrobe for the season. Classic styles and cuts are a good addition to make to your clothing collection as they are versatile and timeless meaning many items will be good to keep for the future and will not need replacing as fashions change. Here are some suggestions of pieces that, once you have them, you will wonder how you ever did without. 


Chinos are a type of trouser, the original versions of which were 100% cotton. They are long lasting and great for cooler evenings. Their roots lie in nineteenth century British military uniforms, which is a testament to their durability. Though they come in many colours a classic khaki or brown are good tones to pick as they will go with most other colours and are a happy medium between lighter summery shades and dark winter ones. Both a casual and playful style, they are a great alternative to jeans which can easily look a little scruffy after too much wear and tear. 


A polo-shirt is a must-have item for any casual autumn wardrobe. A staple of British fashion for many years, a good quality polo made by brands such as Fred Perry is an easy way to stay comfortable yet stylish. If your trousers are an understated colour you can opt for several polo shirts in an array of colours to give you different looks without having to purchase an entire new outfit. They are firmly entrenched in the British fashion tradition of blending sportswear with here! 


To compliment the sportswear/streetwear blend canvas plimsolls can be a good choice. Suitable for walking and some light sport, there are styles available which also take into account contemporary trends in men’s footwear. You can go for light colours or dark colours depending on your preference and how likely you think it is that you can keep your shoes clean. If you want to look more individual consider coloured soles or laces which can complement the rest of your outfit. 


There is an increasing amount of attention being paid to the market of men's accessories these days, which gives you more choice when choosing accessories such as bags. It’s getting easier to find a bag that is not only practical, but also fashionable. Barrel bags are great for multiple purposes from travelling to sports and come in various colours and luxurious materials. 

Have a great weekend! byebye x
