As summer shuffles into autumn, dressing becomes just plain hard. The unpredictable British weather means a typical day often starts hotter than the inside of a McDonald’s Apple Pie, followed by a bit of rain, swelteringly hot again, before finishing up cold, maybe, or not.

For anyone currently scratching their head in bemusement thinking about how to deal with this awkward stage between the end of summer and onset of autumn, the answer lies in having all the right layers to pile on and peel off.

Layers like the ones below from boohooMAN, which is offering FashionBeans readers an exclusive 50% OFF all full priced items using the code FASHB50.

MA1 Lightweight Bomber

The original bomber jacket was developed by the US military to keep pilots warm in cold cockpits, but in today’s modern interpretations men are more likely to be found traversing seasons than oceans.

The chameleon of the transitional wardrobe, flanked with the right crew (read on for those) a bomber will see you flying through the remainder of summer and into the colder months in style.

MA1 Lightweight Bomber. Was £18. Now £9 with voucher code FASHB50.

Knitted Ribbed Body Crew Neck Sweater

Fine-gauge knitwear is a year-round wardrobe essential, but special attention should be paid during months when layering is key.

A crew neck sweater in an understated colour makes for an ageless investment that will slot effortlessly into any on- or off-duty look, while the ribbed weave and breast pocket detail on this design adds some visual interest.

Slim Fit Slate Grey Jean With Sandblasting

Any man can grab a pair of blue jeans that kinda, sorta fit and sling them on with anything, but to push boundaries of personal style means experimenting with different cuts and washes.

Grey denim makes for a fresh alternative to ubiquitous blue or black. The tone is dark enough to see you through autumn/winter, yet still bright enough to work when spring/summer rolls back around.

Borg Collar Washed Black Denim Jacket

The denim jacket is a transitional wardrobe staple that has stood the test of time. But if want to separate your look from the crowd, opt for blue jeans’ edgier, slightly rebellious younger brother.

A black denim jacket is arguably sharper and more wearable than the original, plus the colour is likely to fade quicker, playing into the distressed denim look. Plus, a borg collar not only adds texture but helps shield your neck from autumn’s bite too.

Borg Collar Washed Black Denim Jacket. Was £25. Now £12.50 with voucher code FASHB50.

Long Sleeve Mid Wash Denim Shirt

Once jeans and jacket are ticked off, a trusty shirt should be next on the denim hit-list. This adaptable ally gets one up on its Oxford cousin by pairing just as well with joggers as tailored trousers.

A casual style, such as this one in a lighter wash and with pearlescent snap closures, can be thrown on over a tee as a makeshift jacket for the remainder of summer, before switching to an insulating mid-layer throughout autumn/winter.

Long Sleeve Mid Wash Denim Shirt. Was £16. Now £8 with voucher code FASHB50.

Long Sleeve Extreme Muscle Fit Polo

Just because the weather is set to turn, it doesn’t mean we should cover up under chunky knits for the next six months.

Many summer pieces have cold-weather alternatives, such as polo shirts with long sleeves. Plus, if you’ve spent the first six months of the year getting beach bod ready, this muscle fit version will show it off subtly.

Long Sleeve Extreme Muscle Fit Polo. Was £10. Now £5 with voucher code FASHB50.

Grandad Collar Brushed Check Pocket Shirt

Collars may have gone all Cuban of late, but the ‘grandad’ or ‘band’ style still remains a smart-casual stalwart thanks to its louche, open-necked look.

Once the working man’s choice, the relaxed link between the T-shirt and shirt can be used to dress up denim or add a contemporary feel to tailoring (while also giving you an excuse for going sans tie).

Grandad Collar Brushed Check Pocket Shirt. Was £16. Now £8 with voucher code FASHB50.

Jersey Panelled Sweater

It’s a piece long associated with the gym, but, thanks to a few design upgrades, the humble sweatshirt has made its transition into a smart-casual wardrobe staple.

Sweatshirt 2.0, as we call it, is every bit as comfortable and understated with the same throw-on-and-go appeal, but isn’t something you need apologise for if caught on the way to the shops.

Jersey Panelled Sweater. Was £15. Now £7.50 with voucher code FASHB50.

Desert Boots

There’s something to be said of footwear that has stood the test of time (almost 70 years to be precise). Sure, white sneakers are great, but there’s nothing more trusty than a desert boot.

The shoe deserves a spot in any transitional rotation purely for being both lightweight and grippy – ideal for downtime dressing and taking on whatever the weather throws.

Desert Boots. Was £20. Now £10 with voucher code FASHB50.

Long Sleeve Raglan T-Shirt

Raglan sleeves, aside from oozing a cool, retro sports vibe, play an important role in enhancing man’s most sought-after attribute. No, not that. The contrasting colour-blocked sleeves accentuate shoulders, making them appear broader, while also giving the illusion of a slimmer waist.

If you can also tick off this season’s of-the-moment neutral trend while you’re at it, even better.

Long Sleeve Raglan Tshirt. Was £8. Now £4 with voucher code FASHB50.
