The best casual pieces to wear now
26 September 2018
There’s nothing like a fresh new season to ring the changes and inspire you to stock your wardrobe with pieces that’ll serve you for the entire season. Constantly adding to his current rotation of clothes should be an essential part of every man’s life, whether he counts himself as fashion-forward or not.
This season, we’ve focused on casualwear that can be worn as stand-alone hero pieces or chucked on top of best-loved items that you already own. From the classic white shirt with a modern twist, to a new take on loungewear, and outerwear that you can wear all week and through the weekend, we’ve got you covered – no matter where you’re going.
SHOP THE STORY
Sometimes, all we need is one core piece to raise the status of our outfit, so we’re all about making quick and simple changes that are guaranteed to garner attention. A classic zip-up knit paired with a structured overcoat and upgraded loungewear trousers, alongside to a pop of pattern and colour in your shirt, helps prove that simple sometimes really is best.
If there’s one piece that’s going to help take you to the very depths of winter, it has to be thick, luxurious knitwear. Whether you wear it at the weekend with a white T-shirt and loungewear, or dress it up for the week with a shirt and jeans, it’s something every man needs – now.
Layering is one key style note that every man needs to get right, starting from now. Not only is mixing together the right pieces obviously a functional way to keep warm when the sun hides away, but it’s also a simple way to stay stylish. Your base should always be a simple T-shirt, and from there it’s about building the blocks outwards – which often depends on where you’re going. The modern way to wear a denim shirt should be all about its pairing, so lean toward a deconstructed jacket in a similar shade for a look that’s hard to beat. Mix it all together with classic chinos, and you’re good to go.
When it comes to workwear, it’s still important to stand out from the crowd and have your personal style shine through. Pairing simple basics such as dark chinos and jeans and classic accessories with strong hero pieces such as the updated shirt or a strong piece of outerwear is the perfect way to ring the changes – and still get you noticed.
Simplicity is key to creating a solid wardrobe filled with pieces that you can lean on time and time again. Colour blocking is massive news this season, so play into the trend with a contemporary twist on the classic sweatshirt. Stock up on basics like jeans, chinos, trainers and T-shirts in neutral colours that you can add to any outfit at any given time – and let your clothes do the talking.
