seasonal wardrobe essentials, and a few key style terms to go with it.
- Laura’s tip: Monochrome is a brilliant way to keep your casual outfit looking sharp and considered.
nothing complicated about it. It should come as little surprise that it’s just shorthand for anything that is a middle layer between your jacket and t-shirt, or thermals.
- Liam’s tip: Wondering what shoe to put with your pale blue trousers. Brown is always a strong choice, and a lighter shade, such as this caramel pair, are ideal.
A whole host of garments come under this umbrella term – from hoodies to over-
shirts – but what they all have in common is their versatility, especially come autumn.
- Rachael’s tip: Try adding a pop of colour to a cooler pallet. It brings a bit of welcome vibrancy to your outfit.
Trans-seasonal pieces explained…
There are plenty of mornings when we have that decision to make: ‘What can I wear to make sure I’m not too cold or too hot?’ In this situation, a man requires a garment that can straddle the seasons like a rock god between two giant speakers.
- Bailey’s tip: Love a denim jacket but afraid of falling into the double denim trap? Why not stock up on some seasonally appropriate chinos? A perfect foil for your new jacket.
Whereas shorts are confined largely to the summer, and an arctic parka to the winter, a true trans-seasonal piece can see many a season through. Items such as mid-layers (see above) fall into this category along with lightweight coats, denim jackets and cagoules.
