The Casual Shirt
When you don’t know what to wear, this is your go-to look. All these basic items should be available to you in your wardrobe: a casual shirt, jeans or trousers and a good pair of shoes. The great thing about a casual shirt is that it can be teamed with a multitude of other pieces such as a suit jacket or a jumper over the top. For a more Summery look, take your white shirt and pair it with some light trousers and a casual shoe, throw on a pair of sunglasses and you’ll be good to go.
As we head towards spring, most of your winter gear can be put away. The key piece of this outfit is the blazer, invest in a casual blazer in navy as it will go with most of your clothes and add dapperness to a casual look or heighten a formal look with ease. As for colours, make sure your clothes compliment the colour of your blazer, don’t go as far as wearing a bright red shirt under a navy blazer.
The Leather Jacket
Now’s the time to get your leather out and if you don’t have one, invest in one. Make sure to check out our tips on how to buy the right leather jacket for you. There is nothing complicated about building this look, it all comes down to your leather jacket.
You can simply wear a plain t-shirt underneath the jacket with some jeans and trainers, just be smart about colour choice. For more of a grungy approach, get some skinny jeans on with some boots and you’ll be sure to get some double takes.
The Denim Shirt
A great item to take you through any season, the denim shirt can both be dressed up and down. It can be worn as a shirt only, or thrown on over a plain tee, like Adam does. If you are going for the double denim look, keep the shades different. Or team with a pair of sand chinos like Adam Gallagher. This will keep the outfit smart-casual ready, taking you from day to night.
It comes around to that time of year where it’s acceptable to show some leg, but you need to make sure it’s the right type for the right place. This chino pair are great for smart-casual events, such as a date or an evening get-together.
The great thing about this style is its versatility. It can easily be teamed with a crisp white shirt and loafers to finish off with a formal vibe, or a casual tee and slip on trainers for a casual look. There’s also a wide variety of colour options and short lengths, so there’s undoubtedly one to suit every man’s style.
The Technical Outerwear
For those rainy days than are too warm for a coat, or a breezy day, the technical outwear is a must for all guys. With such a variety of colours and textures, there’s one to suit every style and men’s taste. Opt for a mid length to make the most of showing off the rest of your look. Adam Gallagher keeps the rest of his outfit neutral to really show off his outwear. Finish off with a beanie to show off your Winter and Autumn style.
