Boohoo Man Suedette Biker Detail Jacket
Army green is tipped to infiltrate men’s wardrobes in a big way this season, making it hard to ignore. If you want to avoid investing too much of your own green in short-term pieces, this suede-look biker from Boohoo Man ticks all the trend boxes for less than a night down the pub.
Available at Boohoo, priced £35.
Albam Gunney Smock
If it takes a real man to wear pink, then surely it takes a soldier to wear a military-inspired Pepto Bismol jacket, right? Wrong. This lightweight hooded pullover from London-based Albam is based on a WWII US tank smock but can flank just about anything in your existing wardrobe.
Available at Albam, priced £159.
Norse Projects Sten Pleated Cotton Trousers
Trust the Scandinavians to come up with an even more laid-back alternative to chinos. Copenhagen-based Norse Projects’ straight leg trousers are cut from robust navy cotton, and their utilitarian-cool vibe will pair well with a field jacket for that fresh-from-Oslo feel.
Available at Mr Porter, priced £135.
Topman Blue Doodle Print Denim Jacket
Anything can be a trend these days – even your school leavers shirt. Topman’s unique riff on the denim jacket takes inspiration from your last day at high school, so if you fancy bringing back memories of whatever happened behind the bike sheds, snap this up.
Available at Topman, priced £55.
Nobis Cartel Bomber Jacket
There’s a reason premium Canadian outerwear brand Nobis has recruited so many fans, from Johnny Depp to Tom Cruise. The label’s Cartel parka is the most stylish way to make it through the eye of the storm, thanks to some seriously impressive specs including a highly breathable down lining and magnetic closure wind flaps. Better yet, the brand’s key winter styles never go on sale so you know you’re always getting the best price.
Available at Nobis, priced £630.
New Look Black Pocket Front Backpack
When looking for a bargain bag, it can be hard to track one down that isn’t covered in unwanted bells and whistles. This pared-back black backpack from New Look costs less than a takeaway but punches well above its weight, with a minimalist design that errs on the right side of plain.
Available at New Look, priced £24.99.
Topman Grey Fern Print Skinny Fit Suit Trousers
Forget yearly colour trends, there’s never a time when grey isn’t a solid go-to choice. If you’re after something more interesting than your usual trousers, these botanical bad boys make the perfect date-night look when paired with a crisp white T-shirt and a leather jacket. Plus, imagine all the ‘between two ferns’ jokes you could make.
Available at Topman, priced £50.
River Island Pineapple Print Jumper
If the recent batch of Mario Kart merch whet your retro-gaming whistle, go 8-bit with this season’s trendiest fruit, the pineapple. This slim-fit jumper from River Island will look great with jeans, Princess Peach won’t be able to resist.
Available at River Island, priced £30.
Whistles Suede Chelsea Boots
After the noughties indie scene doomed them into oblivion, the universally flattering Chelsea boot is finally having a renaissance. So if you’re still hoping you’ll be on the cover of the NME one day, these Taupe suede kicks will see you through all occasions – work, play, headlining Glastonbury.
Available at Whistles, priced £175.
Ron Dorff Loopback Sweatshirt Lovely Volley
We’ve accepted the word and the trend is going nowhere any time soon. But if you’ve been holding out for something more refined before trading your shirt for a sweat, this loopback version is for you. Plus, if you’re more nerd than jock, the sort-of anagram on the front gives it some cerebral cred, too.
Available at Ron Dorff, priced £105.
