ASOS Oversized Short Sleeve Printed Sweatshirt
Presidential hopeful Donald Trump said he wants to “make America great again”, and we can only assume that the man who has a thing for Brioni suits means in the style stakes.
Well good news Dangerous Donald (aka Tiny Hands Trump, aka the Angry Cheeto, aka The White Kanye), Asos is on hand to help. The etailer’s short sleeve sweatshirt is a perfect laid-back transitional style, cut with an oversized fit and featuring dropped shoulders as well as raw-cut seams.
Available at ASOS, priced £22.
Nanamica Zip Front Cardigan
Clothing and commuting haven’t always gone hand-in-hand. We don’t mean people have been schlepping to work in the buff, no no, just that more fashion crimes occur during this period than any other.
Restoring some order to the unavoidable evil of getting from A to B is the aim of Japanese label Nanamica. Through products like its heavyweight cotton zip front cardigan, the brand will have you looking boss on a bike or on-point on a plane in no time.
Available at End, priced £169.
Ally Capellino X Norwegian Rains Backpack
Rain, it’s Britain’s most reliable weather. But while the heavens opening has inspired some of the greatest songs of all time (Buddy Holly’s Raining In My Heart being one of them), it hasn’t always been a friend of style.
Luckily, today’s market is awash with performance-focused pieces that also look the part, like accessory brand Ally Capellino’s tie-up up with weatherwear expert Norwegian Rain. The pair has created a backpack made from high-tech PET recycled fabric from Japan, with sealed seams and waterproof zips.
Available at Ally Capellino, priced £295.
River Island Khaki Camo Joggers
It could be said that joggers are the new jeans, but if the refined gym staple is to stand up to the same scrutiny as your best denim they should be slimmed down and sharply cut (just not too tight that they are anatomically revealing.)
A camouflage pair gets you ready for the front line – and we don’t just mean in the battle against hungover Sundays – pairing well with all the upcoming season’s trending neutral colourways.
Available at River Island, priced £28.
Volcomunity Tellurium Wool Shirt
Volcom is a part of the Kering Group, the same company that owns the likes of Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and Bottega Veneta. So it’s no surprise the Californian streetwear brand’s premium Volcomunity collection is packing on the style front.
The range, which focuses on quality fabrics and attention to detail, includes pieces like the Tellurium Wool Shirt. The smart button up holds on to all the functionality of its skate clothes including double patch pockets and black reflective piping.
Available at Volcom, priced £85.
AllSaints Shonto Long Sleeve Shirt
By now you should have learnt that florals don’t always have to be girly and bright, and what’s more, they don’t have to be worn exclusively in summer.
Cool, muted hues can help your style stay in bloom all the way through autumn (even when no actual flowers are growing.) All Saints’ long sleeve slim fitting shirt pairs fifties-inspired styling with a Japanese inspired motif.
Available at House Of Fraser, priced £95.
Baracuta x London Undercover Umbrella
Summer will soon be on the out, which means we’re only a few months away from getting pummeled with rain. Do yourself a favour and get the wet-weather defenses ready with a sturdy, yet stylish, umbrella.
Even if you’re prone to leaving them in a cab, it still pays to invest in a well-made brollie that won’t buckle in the wind. Allow us to suggest London Undercover, which recently collaborated with fellow Brit brand Baracuta to apply the iconic Fraser Tartan commonly seen on Harrington jackets to the inside of its protective canopy.
Available at London Undercover, priced £75.
Our Legacy Hibiscus Camo Commando Jacket
There’s a stereotype about Scandinavian brands that they’re all about slick minimalism and clean, functional lines. And, for the most part, it’s true. But not when it comes to coveted Swedish label Our Legacy.
The Stockholm-based clothing firm’s experimental ‘Splash’ line flips expectations on their head with loud prints and illustrations, like the stonewashed pink camouflage used on its boxy-cut commando jacket.
Available at Liberty, priced £265.
BoohooMAN Short Sleeve Revere Shirt
Don’t pack your T-shirts away just yet. There’s always the strong possibility of an Indian Summer keeping the mercury rising well into October.
This is good news for anyone worried about missing the boat on this season’s biggest shirt trend. Check your neck and get your hands on a revere, or ‘cuban’, collar before they’re gone for good.
Available at BoohooMAN, priced £14.
Topman Purple Tinted Blue Ripped Stretch Skinny Jeans
Lived-in denim ripped right from the nineties has been a hero look of the last season. But even the most rock ‘n’ roll of wearers is going to regret having blown-out knees when the chill starts to bite.
If you’re in the market for a new pair, plan ahead by choosing a style that’s more distressed than destroyed. Topman’s stretch skinny fit model let’s the faded wash do the talking, with the added edge of a single knee scuff.
Available at Topman, priced £40.
