Looking to de-clutter your wardrobe and not sure where to start? Or, maybe you want to start the season with a brand new look? We’ve taken it back to basics by selecting 6 core must-haves for the modern man. These key fashion essentials can form the basis of every outfit, and be paired with existing wardrobe favourites, for infinite hassle-free looks.
1. A Casual Jacket
Even as we slip into Summer, we can't escape the English weather so a thin jacket is always a must. Casual jackets like this Green Bomber from Paul Smith are an easy way to finish off every outfit. They look great thrown on over jeans and a t-shirt on the weekend, and can even add a modern edge to a smart outfit, worn with chinos and brogues. Step up your style game by choosing a slick sports luxe material or go for a lighter, more casual colour for spring, like khaki or burgundy.
A great pair of jeans are essential to almost every outfit, and with a lot of designers improving their denim offering, the range to choose from is vast. These dark straight leg jeans from 7 For All Mankind can be easily dressed up or down, and are perfect for sneaking into your work wardrobe with a smart blazer and loafers.
Obvious we know - but you can't knock investing in some good quality cotton tees in a variety of colours to see you through a number of fail-safe outfits. We love this classic white t-shirt from Diesel that comes with a zip-pocket detail for a modern twist - it works well as a base under open shirts and jackets.
