ASOS Velour Jersey Jacket
Velour tracksuits are finally making the switch from Kardashian backside to credible athleisure piece for men. With a more interesting texture than usual sportswear, this soft-touch jacket has a cool, retro feel without requiring anyone to comb through vintage rails. The contrast raglan sleeves keep the yellow shade wearable, especially when matched with tailored trousers.
Available at ASOS, priced £32.
Cambridge Satchel Co Navy Folio Backpack
The Cambridge Satchel Company’s Folio bag became a modern British icon, and this latest twist makes it a functional wardrobe addition. Cut from textured saffiano leather, the simple design borrows features from the original model, with the addition of adjustable straps and top handle. Big enough for an arsenal of gadgets, but unassuming enough for everyday use.
Available at Cambridge Satchel Co, priced £195.
Cheap Monday Green Jump Jacket
Whether it’s the full force of Storm Doris or just a bit of March drizzle, chances are we’re going to hit some showers before summer kicks in. Swap the winter coat for a transitional coach jacket, like this green example from Swedish brand Cheap Monday. The lightweight fabric makes it great for layering, and you can trust Scandinavians know a thing or two about keeping warm whatever the weather.
Available at Cheap Monday, priced £80.
Ami De Coeur Shirt
Ex-Givenchy and Dior designer, Alexandre Mattiusi launched Ami with the aim of bringing a high-fashion eye to a more affordable price bracket. While some of the Parisian label’s pieces still reach quadruple figures, his classic shirts are an easy way to add some polish to your formalwear.
Available at Ami, priced £145.
Topman Design Off-White Cropped Jeans
Nailed the basics of denim? Off-white jeans are a next level trend to graduate to, but one that will pay dividends as the weather warms. These Topman trews are in a more forgiving shade than crisp white, and will pair easily with navies and greens for a Spring look that is less predictable than the usual jeans and T-shirt combo.
Available at Topman, priced £60.
River Island Green Ribbed Panel Jumper

Available at River Island, priced £30.
